The perfect mix for an unforgettable winter in Mayrhofen - 135 kilometers of fun, action and enjoyment on the slopes. Whether beginners or pros, snowboarders or skiers, young or old and looking for action-packed or easy going experiences, the pistes in the holiday region Mayrhofen-Hippach offer something for everyone. 135 kilometres of slopes with guaranteed snow will once again attract winter sports enthusiasts to the Action Mountain Penken and the Leisure Mountain Ahorn in the 2014/2015 season. Both mountains live up to their names but also offer more: guests can gently carve their way down the Penken or enjoy action-packed runs, such as the 5.5 kilometre valley run, on the Ahorn. For its perfect conditions of the slopes the five-star ski area even received the snowmaking trophy from the international ski area test 2013/2014. Diverse slopes and modern facilities. Providing the snowfall in the rear Zillertal starts as expected, another winter season packed with fantastic piste experiences will start on 29 November 2014. The 55 modern lifts in the Mayrhofen ski area will re start operation and whisk leisurely skiers, families and beginners up to the Ahorn’s broad and sunny carving slopes and action lovers to the Penken’s tough and demanding slopes. Comfort and modernity are always at the fore. For example, last winter, the two-seater Ebenwald chair lift on the Ahorn was replaced with a detachable six-seater chair lift with a footrest, a bubble for protection against the wind and weather, heated seats and self locking overhead bars. This transports up to 2,400 people an hour. The Ahornbahn cable car takes just 6.5 minutes to reach the Ahorn plateau at 2,000 metres – and is Austria’s largest cable car with capacity for up to 160 people. Snow-white highlights at over 2,000 metres. Numerous highlights on both the Ahorn and the Penken are just waiting to be enjoyed in leaps and bounds: the Funslope Ahorn shows children and beginners how enjoyable the winter can be: wave runs, banked turns and bowls together create a unique parcours in a demarcated area for endless hours of fun. Skiers additionally acquire essential coordination and motor skills. Anyone who wants to restock their energy reserves after multiple runs or simply sit back and enjoy the sunshine can head to the sun terrace of the Café-Bistro Freiraum in the Ahorn cable car summit station where spectacular alpine views await. The comfortable deck chairs in the White Lounge offer the ideal place to enjoy a relaxed end to the day. Those who have still not had enough of the mountain can even spend the night in one of the seven Igloo Suites on the Ahorn plateau. Anyone looking for a little more action should head to the Penken: die-hard freestylers find their perfect playground in the form of the Vans Penken Park, one of the best snow parks in Europe. Six different areas offer the perfect environment for all abilities: beginners intrepidly try their first jumps while the pros perform breathtaking tricks. A free photo shoot from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. every Tuesday and Saturday provides ever-lasting memories. A further highlight on the Penken is the Harakiri: with a 78 percent gradient, the legendary black piste is Austria’s steepest slope adventure and should only be tackled by experienced skiers. On safely reaching the bottom, they can take an ‘I survived Harakiri’ t-shirt along in memory of their feat. Convenience and service. Anyone with a valid ski pass can take the ski bus to the lifts in the holiday region Mayrhofen-Hippach free of charge. And if you don’t have the energy to carry your equipment home with you at the end of a long day on the slopes, you can conveniently store it in the ski depots at the cable car summit and valley stations. The revised ski maps for the greater Mayrhofen ski area also help to save energy and reduce stress: the slope numbers have been changed so that these are now sequentially numbered from the Ahorn to the Eggalm – making it easier than ever to find your way around. If in any doubt, the info scouts out and about on the slopes will gladly offer guidance and advice. With so many options, making a decision can sometimes be hard. The tour suggestions and weekly schedule at www.mayrhofner bergbahnen.com/en/info-und-service can help and are guaranteed to offer something that will become a highlight of your holiday.

Visitor Reviews of Mayrhofen

m.chapple from United Kingdom writes:

Skied Mayrhofen this year and enjoyed most aspects of what it had to offer. It was a family event. Firstly, the accommodation was a 65m2 apartment; 3 bedrooms, for 5 people which was a joy. The town is indeed picture postcard with plenty going on off the slopes; swimming/water park is great. The skiing itself is not door step for sure, but away from the busy times this was not a problem. The runs are varied with excellent mountain cafes along the way. Yes, this resorts ticks plenty of the right boxes and it must be half the costs of its Swiss and French counterparts. Booked to go to Mayrhofen for Feb 2014.
