Axamer Lizum general information


Axamer Lizum’s closeness to Innsbruck makes it the perfect ski and snowboarding destination for a short break or weekend ski trip as well as a longer winter sports holiday. Access is possible by air, rail and road, with Innsbruck Airport, the largest in the Tyrol, under an hour’s drive away in winter weather and hosting both full-service and low-cost seasonal flights from across Europe. The UK is especially well-served, with routes from London Gatwick, Stansted, Manchester, Birmingham and a good number of other major provincial cities. Onward travel is by bus to Innsbruck, with a pick-up on the regular ski buses, leaving from the main hotels or the central transfer point, getting skiers to the slopes at Axamer in double-quick time – weather permitting.

If driving, make sure you have the right winter safety equipment such as snow chains and winter tyres – European laws on winter road safety vary between countries and are stringently enforced. The route to Innsbruck involves well-signposted motorway driving from all directions, and onward travel the few kilometres to Axamer is straightforward in all but the worst weather. Fast train services run from all over Europe to Innsbruck.

For skiers staying more than several days, the multi-region Glacier Lift Pass is a great deal, giving access to all the lifts and runs in the Innsbruck area, including Axamer. For shorter stays there are day tickets, two-day tickets and five-day ski passes. Rates vary between low and peak seasons, with discounts for children, students and seniors. Another comprehensive lift pass is the OlympiaWorld pass, also including the Axamer lifts.
