Offering some of the area’s most rugged terrain and reliable snow conditions, there’s great skiing opportunities in Axamer Lizum. Many of the Olympic Alpine events in 1976 were held on Axamer’s compact yet interesting mid-height slopes. The main runs are mostly above the trees but otherwise nicely varied, including a couple of blacks and good scope for off-piste adventurers. A lift and red run link the slopes towards Mutters in the next valley. Beginners will love the nursery lifts and two ski schools on offer.
Axams is the best place to stay locally, but there is a 4-star hotel at the lift base.
