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 returned for the 2014 season, without much success. The following three seasons (20152017) were more successful, with several (one, five and five, respectively) finishes in the top ten.[2][3] In 2015 he got into world news for a mistake in a slalom race.[4] In 2017 he became world champion in team event (ras a reserve).

He is in a relationship with alpine skier Tessa Worley.[5]
