Directly in the backyard of Innsbruck you’ll find a Skyrace route which gives you everything you can wish for! Starting at the Muttereralm Talstation, where you also can get easily with public transport, you head up straight through the forest.
Reaching Mutteralm you can refresh with water and keep on going up direction next hut, which is Birgitzköpflhaus.
Conquering this route, also make sure, that the weather is stable and no thunderstorm is approaching, cause the next kilometers are slow, challenging and exposed.
But definitely worth it! Still going up you already can imagine where the peak of Saile is, but you never really can see the summit cross on your way up.
The last vertical meters getting a bit flatter and you’ll finally see the peak of Saile, which is one of the favorites of Innsbrucks inhabitants and especially students who are spending nights up there.
The downhill back to the starting point is pretty rough and challenging but Skyrunners will love it.
On the way down you also will collect a few more vertical meters, but the hard part is done and you can enjoy flying back to the valley.
