As you would expect with such a famous ski area, Axamer Lixum offers challenging skiing and the opportunity to ski an Olympic run. The area also offers good progression from the nursery area and suits the needs of a school party. The resort is known locally as Innsbruck’s `White Roof’, a reference to the famous Golden Roof in the heart of Innsbruck.
Our groups will be accommodated in nearby Götzens and with its close proximity to Innsbruck, it allows groups to explore the various apres ski options that Tirol’s capital offers.
On the slopes
Axamer Lizum is situated at 1580m with 10 lifts allowing groups to explore the mix of beginner, intermediate and advanced skiing on offer. Axamer Lizum’s height and north-facing location means there is an abundance of natural snowfall and consistently good snow conditions, backed up by snow making facilities that cover 80% of the piste area. Some of the pistes have been named after the races that were hosted at either the 1964 or 1976 Winter Olympics. Beginners will access the gentle novice terrain at the base of the ski area.
Your school group can enjoy in Götzens or Innsbruck bowling, ice skating or curling.
