Skiing/Snowboarding Tips (4)

Patscherkofel 2216m

Located under the Patscherkofel summit is the Olympic track for bobsleigh and skeleton. Built for the winter olympics of 1964 and1976 in Innsbruck - Igls. It is the host of intenational and world competitions for Bob ,sledge and Skeleton. Open both in summer and winter.
When you see the Patcherkofel, It's easely recognisable as it is the only round summit for miles with a TV and Radio traqnsmitter station on top. It has always reminded me of a giant "Germknodel "- an austrian sweet round cake with jam and coated with vanilla cream :)))
