Axamer Lizum skiing area - Innsbruck

The Axamer Lizum, the largest skiing area in the surroundings of Innsbruck, was venue for the Winter Olympics in 1964 and 1976.

The Axamer Lizum, located 19 km from Innsbruck, is known as the "White Roof" of the Alpine City. The skiing area is famous due to the Olympic Winter Games of 1964 and 1976: the alpine skiing competitions were staged on Mt. Hoadl (2,340 m a.s.l.) - its downhill runs and giant slalom slopes are legendary. On the occasion of the Winter Games of 1964, also the Olympiabahn funicular was inaugurated, taking you on Mt. Hoadl. And why it is called Axamer Lizum? Axams is a village that is only 8 km away, and "Lizum" stands for an Alpine pasture located at the head of the valley.

From the skiing area, you can reach the villages of Axams, Götzens and Mutters - the valley runs to Götzens and Mutters are particularly snow sure, as there is also the Muttereralm skiing area, providing artificial snowmaking. Snowboarders and freeriders can look forward to a 300 hectares large Freeride Area, the Golden Roofpark, the new Fun Slope, the RaceCorner and a Speed Check. The Axamer Lizum was already awarded 5 stars for its freeride offers and the slope preparation.

Do you need a break? The Panorama Restaurant Hoadl Haus (2,340 m a.s.l.), which received the "ISR Architektur Award 2009", offers the largest covered terrace of the Alps! Nearby there's the new Schirmbar. The Snow Card Tyrol (more than 90 skiing areas in Tyrol), the Freizeitticket Tyrol (32 skiing areas and other leisure time facilities in Tyrol) and the SKI plus CITY Pass (13 skiing areas around Innsbruck and the Stubaital valley, formerly known as Olympia SkiWorld Innsbruck) are valid in the Axamer Lizum skiing area in the surroundings of Innsbruck.
