Our bike school in the Bikpark Katzenkopf

The bike park at Katzenkopf offers an optimal fun and practice environment for young and old. With the chairlift you can reach three casual trails with difficulties from green to red. The green trail is perfect for beginners, and after one of our coaching sessions can be ridden without previous experience. On the blue trail there is flow from top to bottom. Whoever masters the curve technique will have real fun here. If you want to get some airtime, you have to go to the red trail. Here you can expect jumps and roots.

In the area of the valley station near the conveyor belt we have an optimal practice area for our bike school at the Katzenkopf. Here there is a pump track, a jumpline and some obstacles to practice the techniques. Here we make you fit for the trails that we can then enjoy them together with safety and fun. But also for advanced users there is a lot of progress possible here. We practice getting through the turns faster and flying through the air more stylishly.

Offers for kids at the Katzenkopf

Our mountain bike kids courses and trainings at Katzenkopf are designed to give the bike kids the opportunity to work on their bike skills under professional coaching. Different age groups with adapted programs promise a steep learning curve in a controlled setting. It is important to first consolidate the basics of mountain biking before attempting the bigger jumps. At a young age you learn fast and we make sure that the kids learn well. Step by step and with a lot of fun we open the kids different aspects of the bike world. We are not only about downhill, but also about fun, fitness and a good understanding of our mountains and nature.

The practice facilities at Katzenkopf are a good mix of gravel sites, pump track, forest and meadow terrain, jumplines and built trails with berms. Of course, minor falls do occur, but safetyis always a high priority during the exercises. Closely followed by fun, of course. We are looking forward to seeing you!

Company events and incentives at the cat’s head

The Katzenkopf also provides an optimal base for your corporate event. Bike training increases the safety of your employees, motivates them to move more in nature and thereby also promotes health. The practice area at the valley station offers us an optimal opportunity for teambuilding exercises on the bike. The participants learn together, have to support each other and mock each other during heavier exercises (= catch each other in case of a fall). Joint descents with our coaches over the trails promote fun and team experience.

Lunch is served at the extremely cozy Katzenkopfhütte which invites you to relax. A round of disc golf is an ideal social program. All in the great outdoors in beautiful surroundings. The location is also suitable for school trips. So do not hesitate to send us an inquiry to receive a non-binding offer.

Our trainers

Jonas Bayer – Biking as well as skiing have totally fascinated him. That’s why he has been a mountain bike guide since 2016 and in 2019 he completed the training to become a mountain bike instructor. He is looking forward to a fun and eventful as well as educational time on the bike with you! As a very good riding technician in theory and practice, he will take you to the next level at the Technique Tuesday.

Julia Granbichler – Growing up on the Mieminger Plateau, biking has always been a big thing for Julia. At the latest after graduating and returning from Vienna, she completely fell in love with the bike. For 6 years now, bikes have been an integral part of her life. Then 2 years ago she also began to share her passion with others and now supports us with courses.

Lena Koller is an all-rounder, always motivated and with high goals. There is hardly a mountain sport discipline in which she is not constantly pushing her limits. From the chick in a Tyrolean ski racing family, her career first developed in the direction of mountain biking and then later on to ambitious alpine projects. You rarely see them on the ski slopes these days, but you do see them again and again on the podium at MTB marathons or on various sports advertising images. In between, Lena works as an extremely motivated and experienced riding technique trainer and bike guide.

Philipp Moll – Since 2010, the Wahlinnsbrucker has been an integral part of the local mountain world, whether on two wheels, legs or boards. This is how the full-time pedagogue stayed after his studies in Innsbruck. Here he has turned his passion into a second profession and now regularly gives MTB riding technique courses and MTB kids training. In doing so, it is important to him to combine the two disciplines of his professional activities and to create a learning environment that is always pleasant and progressive.

Markus Emprechtinger: Born in the hilly Innviertel region, it was clear at the latest when he moved to Innsbruck to study that a life without mountains would no longer be viable. He studied meteorology so he wouldn’t get caught in the rain on the road, but most of the time he’s outdoors anyway and takes the weather as it comes. After many years of bike guiding experience (over 50 Transalps) now fully in the mountain guide business. Markus is an all-rounder, whether with bike, ice tools, climbing pads or skis, he has fun everywhere. That’s why flatsucks, as long as the terrain isn’t flat, nothing stands in the way of a good day. Besides mountain sports, there is also photography.

Sabine Schipflinger – Grown up in Viehhofen, a small village in front of Saalbach Hinterglemm, she moved to Innsbruck to study sports science. When she’s not in college, she loves to spend her time on the snow or on the trails. Through her work as an instructor in the ski instructors association, ski guide and mountain bike guide, she likes to pass on her knowledge to like-minded people or those who want to become one.
