Ski info
  • Ski area

    Located in the Zillertal Valley, Mayrhofen offers a wide range of skiing over its 54 slopes which are connected by a superb range of fasts lifts. Mayrhofen skiing is split into two main areas, the main area being Penken-Horberg where the vast majority of slopes can be accessed, as well as providing a link to Rastkogel.

    The second of the 2 areas is Ahorn. Ahorn has some incredible beginner facilities and is a great area for first timers to find their feet, under the excellent tuition of the English speaking Austrian instructors. Due to the absence of nursery slopes down in the town though, it does mean you need to get the lift pass for the entire area in order to gain access to the facilities. The Ahorn area is slightly limited for intermediate and advanced skiers or snowboarders so you might want to head over to Penken where there is an abundance of challenging terrain on offer, including a superb terrain park! 

    Even though you have plenty of skiing around Mayrhofen, there is always the opportunity to get yourself a Zillertal Superskipass which will enable you to ski all the resorts in the valley and access them via the bus at no additional cost. This means that you can get your high altitude skiing fix with some glacier skiing up the road at Hintertux as well!

    The resort

    Mayrhofen itself is a beautiful village in the heart of the Austrian Alps. Holding a more traditional appearance to other large ski resorts, Mayrhofen attracts all sorts of groups. It is a family friendly resort with a lot of style but also accommodates the larger groups looking for a party on account of a great après ski scene.

    Mayrhofen is home to the ‘White Lounge’ in the Ahorn area where you will be able to relax on a deck chair in the sun whilst sipping on a drink from the bar. There is also an opportunity to stay in one of the 7 igloo suites for an experience like no other! If you are looking for a different non-skiing activity though, then why not try out some tobogganing with the family or have a few drinks whilst bowling in the evening?

    Mayrhofen has got a fantastic range of restaurants both on and off the mountain, so if you fancy a nice big pizza for lunch, try out ‘The Neue Post’ and then in the evening you can take your palette to another part of the world at ‘The Singapore’ for some Chinese food. Who said you can never find your favourite food abroad?!
