Full review

I visited Innsbruck the week of New Years in 2005 and skiied a couple of days at Axamer Lizum. It was about an hour bus ride from the town center to the ski area. The buses are new and comfortable, but no one wants to ride a bus for an hour to the ski area. There is no base area of town where the mountain begins. There are towns that surround the ski area, but there is only a parking lot, a tick shack and 2 lifts at the base are. With no base area, you can't have any apres ski or nightlife, but being connected to a major city like Innsbruck allows you to have some delayed nightlife. Once you make your way to the mid point of the mountain, it opens into a beautiful bowl with several lifts that take you to a variety of terrain. One interesting feature of the Axamer Lizum area is the elevated funicular that runs up the middle of the bowl from the base area to the peak. At the peak of the mountain is an excellent restaurant with striking modern architecture. Despite being very cold and heavily overcast, there was very soft snow with very little ice. The main drawback of the entire Innsbruck area is the lack of interconnectivity of the ski areas. The bus system makes it easy to get to each area; however, each area is so small. At all of the areas that I skiied in the Innsbruck area, you would not want to spend more than 2 days at because it would become so repetetive. Axamer Lizum is good ski resort for those who enjoy skiing, but need the big city attactions that Innsbruck allows.
