Freeride in Tirol

...from Innsbruck into the powder

Freeride skiing enjoyment Axamer Lizum

Having enjoyed the city life of Innsbruck with your friends the evening before, the next morning you grab your skis and get on the bus heading for deep snow fun once again.

In Axamer Lizum – 19 kilometres from the capital city of the Alps – all powder-fans from Innsbruck and far beyond meet up.

Even pros such as World Tour Rider Neil Williman, the Freeskier from New Zealand, have made the "Lizum” their home for winter, mixing up contests such as the OPEN FACES 3-star Freeride World Qualifier time and again.

The Freeride Top-Spot of the Olympic skiing region Innsbruck with some 300 hectares of open terrain and numerous north-facing slopes also provides optimal conditions for powder-adventures.

The reliable snow conditions thanks to the high altitude makes for the remaining and most important ingredient - powder. That Axamer Lizum has a thing or two in store when it comes to Freeriding, is something recognised even by the world’s largest skiportal – – which awarded 5 stars in the category Freeride to Axamer Lizum. There’s plenty on offer in the most popular powder playground in the Innsbruck area!

Freeride Checkpoint parking lot & Hoadl Haus

High-alpine winter landscape - Axamer Lizum

Two Freeride Checkpoints: at the parking lot at 1,580 metres and at the Hoadl Haus at 2,340 metres. Because without the proper gear and a plan for risk management in your pocket, things can get quite dangerous away from signposted pistes, so it’s a good idea to first get and overview at the Freeride Checkpoints of the quantities of fresh snow, temperatures on the mountain, open and closed ski routes while also checking that the avalanche transceiver works properly at the same time.

How to properly use the data for open terrain is taught by SAAC and "” during free avalanche courses.
