Ski touring recommendations

This page will give you some ideas for ski tours in the region of Innsbruck. A great way to get a wonderful insight into the wonders of winter, especially under good conditions. These are, of course, only suggestions, as the final responsibility lies with the tourer to inform him or herself about current conditions before setting out.

Ski touring is a sport in which the risks should never be underestimated. We cannot accept any responsibility for snow conditions, avalanche risks and other outside influences. Every ski tourer is responsible for their own adequate avalanche protection and should check all current conditions with Tyrol's Avalanche Warning Service.

The route from Axams to Axamer Kögele is a popular and challenging on-piste ski tour. The tour starts at the southern end of Axams. Shortly before the turnoff for Axamer Lizum ski resort, you will come to a few paid  parking spaces on Kögelestraße road near the Sonnenlift Axams drag lift. From there, the tour starts over wide meadows before coming to the start of the actual ski route. From this point, the tour leads steadily uphill on the Axamer Abfahrt ski route between two wooded areas. At the beginning, there are two very steep sections (often icy in late winter/spring) to overcome and then the terrain flattens out a bit in the middle section. From the upper treeline, the route leads up two more steep slopes before reaching the destination, the Axamer Kögele. 


Descent: on the off-piste Axamer Abfahrt ski route that leads down into the valley


WARNING! Please note the avalanche danger levels!

For tours in off-piste terrain, it is essential to have appropriate equipment, local knowledge and experience of assessing hazards such as avalanche danger, etc. The tourist office assumes no liability for tour suggestions.
