The Axamer Lizum - 19 kilometers from Innsbruck, the "Capital of the Alps" - is a meeting place for powder-hungry people from near and far.

Even pros like world tour rider Neil Williman, the freeskier from New Zealand, have made the "Lizum" their favorite area and regularly take part in contests like the OPEN FACES 3-Star Freeride World Qualifier. See photo above - Rider Neil Williman - Photo by Tom Platts.
