Seefeld is a classic winter sports holiday type of resort, built in a Tirolean style with a great village layout with car free centre. The ski resort will appeal to all levels of skiers and snowboarders, particually experts and strong intermediates will enjoy the off piste skiing available here.
The wooded slopes provide a gentle introduction to alpine skiing, as well as 250km of cross-country trails. The main downhill area, beneath the Seefelder Joch, is reached by funicular and cable car providing a lot of fun for intermediate skiers whilst the lower Gschwandtkopf and Geigenbuhl nursery slopes are perfect for beginners.
While adventurous experts may find the area limiting, there are one or two runs on the Rosshutte, which should not be taken lightly. The upper slopes of the Seefelder Joch are often heavily mogulled and the off-piste on the far side of the Härmelekopf is excellent, but should only be tackled with a guide.
The Gschwandtkopf, served by a series of 8 chairlifts and tows, is close to the village centre and caters mostly for lower intermediates. From the other end of the village, a mountain railway allows you to travel in comfort up to the Rosshutte, offering more challenging pistes for intermediates.
For a gentle introduction to skiing, Seefeld's superb ski-school and slopes are highly recommended. Lessons begin on the Geigenbuhel beginners' area, perfect for mastering those snowplough turns.

Local riders from Innsbruck can be found in the half-pipe and snowboard park here. For intermediates there is some good terrain to explore and beginners shouldn't find the terrain too stressful.
Après ski is lively with many great bars, cafés and sophisticated nightspots.
