The Top 10 Freeride Lines at Axamer Lizum & Schlick 2000

Although small by European standards, these 2 ski areas are home to an extraordinary array of epic freeride routes.

Description

Compared to the huge resorts of the neighbouring Arlberg region such as Ischgl and St Anton, these 2 Tirolian ski areas are small but they provide access to some truly amazing freeriding.

There is nothing super steep at the resorts but to tick all of these lines you'll need to be a good all round skier, capable of turning on all sorts of terrain and in all types of snow. There's everything here from narrow couloirs to wide open bowls and all the skiing described here is all "type 1 fun", guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Having worked your way through these routes, who not try something a little more adventurous and get stuck into our touring guidebook for the area?
