Axamer Lizum Ski Resorts & Holidays

GENERAL

Magic Mountains is a unique concept offering guests a fantastic 'inclusive' winter holiday in the Axamer Lizum skiing area. Venue for the Winter Olympic Games in 1964 and 1976, Axamer Lizum is a snow sure domain and offers spectacular views of Innsbruck and the surrounding region. The hotels and 'après ski' offered are in the attractive Tirolean village of Götzens, just 20-25 minutes below the ski area, with a new 8-seater gondola built in 2006/7 connecting you straight through to the Muttereralm ski area. Alternatively take the 'Magic Mountains' daily transfer or the regular ski bus to Axamer Lizum.

Beginners (2 out of 5)

The 'Magic Mountains' ski instructors will patiently ensure that you make the most of your first ski holiday! The nursery area around the base of the main ski area has plenty of gentle runs on which to gain confidence, with the inspiration of the stunning mountain scenery all around.

Intermediates (4 out of 5)

With a multitude of long red runs and a good snow record, Axamer Lizum ski area is an undisputed paradise for intermediates. The men's Olympic downhill run from the top of the Hoadl (2,340m) is a challenge not to be missed!

Advanced (3 out of 5)

This former Olympic resort offers some good challenges. Advanced skiers will relish the steep men's slalom run from the top of the Birgitzkopfl whilst the ski routes from the Hoadl offer a good challenge especially after a fresh snow fall! The wonderful 7km home run also rounds off a day's skiing perfectly!

Snowboarding (3 out of 5)

A good nursery area and a few easy blues mean this is a great place to get started or to develop your boarding skills, with the help of the 'Magic Mountains' instructors. The more advanced snowboarders should head up to the top of the Hoadl and on to the ski routes which are great for riding in powder! There is a small snowboard 'fun park' for freestyle.
