Axamer Lizum Ski Resort

Ski resort open

Open lifts 2/9

Located just a short drive from Tirol’s capital, Innsbruck, powder hounds simply love Axamer Lizum ski resort. On 26 November 2022 the ski area opened a new lift, the Hoadlbahn, taking skiers and snowboarders from the bottom to the top of the resort. This ten-man cable car was built in just seven months and stops off mid-way at the Sunnalm hut. The ride takes just six minutes from the car park at the bottom of the resort to the Hoadl-Haus at the top (2,340 metres).

The resort is playfully known as Innsbruck’s "White Roof", a reference to the famous Golden Roof in the heart of Innsbruck. Located just 19 kilometres from the city, on the edge of the Stubai Alps, Axamer Lizum boasts a fantastic alpine setting crowned by the lofty and jagged Kalkkögel Mountains. The skiable terrain at Axamer Lizum features a mix of beginner, intermediate and advanced areas, ensuring skiers and snowboarders of all abilities will find a wide range of runs to suit their comfort levels.

Rising from 1,600 to 2,340 metres, Axamer Lizum’s elevation advantage and north-facing location translate to an abundance of natural snowfall every season and consistently good snow conditions all winter long. Some of the trails have been named after the races they hosted at the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics. The majority of trails are rated red (advanced), but there are also some long blue groomers (beginner) and one black run for expert skiers. After heavy snowfalls, the backcountry terrain around Birgitzköpfle is a haven for those who live for waist-deep powder dumps. The freeriding terrain winds all the way down to the base for some awesome big mountain riding. A particularly long top-to-bottom run takes in the neighbouring Mutterer Alm ski resort and delivers skiers and riders at the village of Götzens.

Snowboarders and freestylers will enjoy the kickers and rails at the Golden Roof Park near the Karleitenlift. At the bottom of the Olympiabahn lift there are two easy lifts and plenty of gentle slopes for beginners. Fresh mountain air is sure to give you a healthy appetite, so pause for a rest, and eat a hearty meal served with stunning mountain views in one of the cosy mountain restaurants or huts. The Hoadl Haus lodge at 2,340 metres is one of Tirol’s most beautiful on-mountain eateries with spectacular panoramic-view seating and a sun-drenched patio with bar. There is a free shuttle bus from Innsbruck to Axamer Lizum and back again.
