What's it like at Axamer Lizum resort?
This is a high alpine winter landscape with 10 cable cars and lifts and about 40 km of groomed slopes located only 19km away from Innsbruck (free ski bus). The Axamer Lizum is one of the most snow-sure winter sports areas in Austria because of its altitude and additional snow-making. There is a reason it is called the white roof of the Olympiaregion Innsbruck. There is something for everyone in the Axamer Lizum and if these top ski runs are not enough, there is the Golden Roofpark or the adrenaline rush from the extensive free-ride area. The lovely natural toboggan run from the Birgitzer Alm or from Lizum car park with free ski bus are some of the best in the Innsbruck area. The 300 hectares of open terrain and the many north-facing slopes get the heart rate going. You can get an overview of the amount of new snow, temperature on the mountain, open or closed ski routes and check the function of the avalanche beacon at the two free-ride checkpoints at the car park at 1580 metres and at the Hoadl Haus at 2340 metres

Visitor Reviews of Axamer Lizum

I've had two separate days here in the last 5 years, the last one being 22 March.
Axamer Lizum is the nearest thing in Austria to a French purpose built resort. Moreover, it has real pedigree having hosted all the alpine skiing, save for the men's downhill, at two Olympic Games and one Olympic Youth games, which is testament to the quality of the terrain.
It's compact but there is plenty of challenge especially the Men's GS course, which is a beast as they don't groom it. So if you're a big mogul freak look no further!
The Ladies Downhill piste is super quick but very skiable for average intermediates and above, whilst being a pure delight for advanced skiers.
Off-piste and ski-touring opportunities are excellent. Mountain restaurants are great value and considerably cheaper than St Anton/Lech/Ischgl and massively cheaper than France!
Lift system is old in places but does the job and the funicular is very fast, with no queuing anywhere.
There are four hotels at the base of the mountain but Innsbruck is probably a better bet with loads to do and see and free 25 minute bus ride up the mountain for ski card holders.
All in all, ideal for a long weekend, especially, when you can also ski Stubai, Igls and Kuhtai all on the same ski pass.
