This is the ski base serving the villages of Axams, Birgitz and Gotzens and to a large extent, Innsbruck. A couple of large hotels, bars, mountain restaurants and ski hire shops which also sell ski accessories, make up the area of Axamer Lizum. It is an excellent location for those who wish to have skiing literally on their doorstep and although there is no main village in sight you will find a lively atmosphere in the evening.
Skiing in Axamer Lizum
The lift pass covers the local snow-sure area of Axamer Lizum. The ski area offers a total of 10 lifts and totals 30km of piste. Axamer Lizum is where the Hotel Olympia is located and was the main site of the Innsbruck 1964 & 1976 Olympic Games. Although the 30kms available would slightly favour intermediates, beginners can enjoy good green slopes just 100 yrds from the Hotel Olympia. This is a compact and challenging ski area with excellent snow conditions.
In Axamer Lizum most après-ski activities centre around your hotel. A large disco provides hotel guests with lively entertainment each evening while recreation rooms, a games arcade and TV rooms offer a quieter form of après-ski. An indoor Aquatic Centre in Axams (8km away) is well worth a visit and you may like to try your hand at tobogganing, available only 100m from your hotel. An evening in Innsbruck is also well worth considering.
Take a dip in the local indoor swimming pool – the perfect way to relax and have a bit of fun after a day on the slopes.
An evening of bowling in Lavarone is the perfect group activity providing a fun-filled end to a day on the slopes.
Toboganning is one of the most enjoyable snow activities, especially with a big group!
Enjoy ice skating at the local ice skating rink for an ideal apres-ski activity.
