School Ski Trips to

Axamer Lizum, Austria

Having hosted the Winter Games in both 1964 and 1976, Axamer Lizum is steeped in Olympic history. Its legacy means that the resort has modern facilities, an excellent lift system and a great variety of pistes, ensuring that beginners progress steadily, whilst more advanced skiers are suitably challenged.
  • Olympic resort with a high speed funicular lift
  • 20 minutes from Innsbruck city centre and airport
  • Easily accessible for flight or coach groups

The fantastic Olympia funicular takes you to the top of the ski resort at 2,340m, where the views are incredible and the run down exhilarating.

The resort is very safe, being self-contained and compact, but at only 20 minutes from the region’s capital city, there's an abundance of activities on your doorstep. Groups can either stay piste-side or closer to Innsbruck; either way, hot piste-side lunches and ski storage will make for a convenient and comfortable stay.

What Our Customers Say


  • What about après events?

    We supply a basic après package to all groups, which includes ideas and materials to run a number of in-house après activities, such as quiz nights, games nights and bingo nights. However, we also offer an extensive list of additional après ski events in each resort, which can be included in your package for a small supplement if you wish. For more details, please see the information on the individual resort pages.

  • What about ski equipment?

    Skis, boots, poles and helmet hire are all included as standard. You’ll usually be issued and fitted with your equipment on the day of arrival.

  • Which ski schools do you use?

    We have close, established links with all the ski schools in the resorts we offer. In all instances, we can guarantee highly qualified, English-speaking ski instructors who will make sure each student gets the most out of their time on the slopes.

  • Is a Tour Manager included as standard?

    Yes, all of our ski groups have one Tour Manager designated to them to take care of all the logistics and ensure everything runs smoothly. Your Tour Manager may meet you in resort, but it’s sometimes possible for them to travel to and from resort with your group.

  • What else should I be looking for in a resort?

    Choosing the right resort should be governed by two main criteria: the skiing and the resort facilities. If your group has younger children or a majority of beginner skiers, then a large ski area isn’t necessary. However, for advanced skiers, the opportunity to ski more pistes will be important.

    Younger groups will not need a wide-ranging après program and lots of events can be organised in or near the hotel, including those provided in the complimentary après ski pack. However, adult groups and groups with older children will want to organise some evenings out and for après ski events to be in abundance.
