Its history goes back to 1951, when three former customs buildings were converted for use by the Obergurgl federal Sports Center and Innsbruck University's Alpine Research Center. That marked the beginning of a focus on sports and science with international participation. Famous mountain guides, ski instructors and researchers worked here and made many major contributions to sports and science in the Alps.
