Julien Lizeroux (born 5 September 1979) is a World Cup alpine ski racer from France. He competes in the technical events and specilaizes in the slalom.

Born in Moûtiers, Savoie, Lizeroux is a member of Douanes-La Plagne. He made his World Cup debut in 2000 and has three World Cup victories, all in slalom. Lizeroux won silver medals in the super combined and the slalom on home snow at the 2009 World Championships in Val d'Isère. He finished 9th in the slalom and 18th in the super combined of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

A problematic right knee hampered his performance during the first half of 2011 season, and has sidelined him since January 2011.[1] Surgery in June 2011 caused Lizeroux to miss the 2012 season; he hopes to return for the 2013 season.[2]
