you gonna be a lucky guy , because its about to snow on monday !
From innsbruck you can get to kühtai,axamer lizum , stuabi glacier or nordpark by bus!
Kühtai got some sick terrain especially the big WALL and everything arround that , but the other areas arent bad either. Skiing pow is sick everywhere arround innsbruck.
Hey dude, I live in Innsbruck for a year 3 years ago so let me give you some pointers.
My favorite place to ride was Nordpark. Not sure about ur decision to leave your park skis at home, just cause ur in the alps doesnt mean ur gonna ride pow all the time. I would bring them cause Nordpark has an awesome awesome jump that is serviced by one chairlift for easy laps.
If it is BC that ur looking for, Nordpark also has the steepest in bound skiing in the alps. If your going solo this will be important because I'm not sure you wanna venture into the backcountry alone. Also good to shredding pow is Axamer Lizum. Its a little further than Nordpark but worth the drive if it snows a lot.
Although I went to Innsbruck for skiing, I probably spent more time partying so here's the low down. Let me try to remember:
Hofgarten: This is probably the sickest bar in Innsbruck. Biggest night here was Tuesday's from what I can remember. Its like 5 euros for 10 beers before 11 or something. Probably the nicest bar too. There is a sick patio outside and the club inside is good too. Most popular with university kids.
Stadtcafe: this one is close to hoftgarten, and depending on the night can be pretty wild too. Attracts more of an older crowd, but is also one of the nicer bars around.
Blue Chip: This one is in the basement of a place off of Marie Theriesen Strasse. Plays sick music and I think its Thursday nights that it really gets going.
Plateau: This is the most insane after hours bar ever. Go here if you're still trucking at like 4am till 7am. My advice to you - if you want to ski the next day, don't go to this place. I don't think I ever woke up in shape for skiing after going here.
you can take the city bus up to Nordpark, and I believe since I was there last that they built a tram that basically picks you up right by the river in the city and brings you to the mountain.
As for the others, there are free buses that will drive ya up there. You can get them all around the city so just get a map of where the buses are and the times and you'll be all set. Pretty much all of them stop at the train station (Hauptbahnhof) so when in doubt just go there.
have fun. and make sure to ask a broad when ur there (ich habe ein sehr kleine schwanz). trust me they'll love it.
