Axamer Lizum Skiing Area - Innsbruck

The Axamer Lizum on Mt. hoadl, located 19 km from Innsbruck, is known as the “White Roof” of the Alpine City

Axamer Lizum - that's how the head of the valley of the Rio Axams in the Kalkkögel mountains, the "Dolomites of North Tyrol", is called. It is particularly well known as hiking and skiing area, and is famous due to the Olympic Winter Games of 1964 and 1976: The alpine skiing competitions were staged on Mt. Hoadl - its downhill runs and giant slalom slopes are legendary. The Hoadl Cable Car, which was inaugurated in the season 2022/23 by replacing the back then existing cable cars, leads from the Axamer Lizum parking space in six minutes directly up to the Hoadl-Haus. In addition, there's the Birgitzköpfl Cable Car which takes you from the parking space to the freeride area.

Most of the 30 km ski slopes are medium difficult, furthermore there are 11 km of ski routes, making the Axamer Lizum one of the largest skiing areas in the surroundings of Innsbruck. The valley runs take you to Axams, Götzens and Mutters. Snowboarders can look forward to the Golden Roof Park with its individual slope style and to the funslope with 21 obstacles. Opposite the main slopes there's Mt. Birgitzköpfl, the 300 hectares large freeride paradise. The safety was upgraded by two freeride checkpoints: one at the parking space, the other one at the Hoadl-Haus.

Two signposted ski routes and three toboggan runs complete the offer of the Axamer Lizum Skiing Area. Do you need a break? The Hoadl-Haus at 2,340 m a.s.l., which received the "ISR Architektur Award 2009", offers the largest covered terrace of the Alps. The other cosy huts are called Lizum Alm, Pleisenhütte and Dohlennest, literally jackdaw's nest. If that's not enough, then the SKI plus CITY Pass Innsbruck Stubai includes 13 areas between the Stubaital and Innsbruck.
