MAYRHOFEN: ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR SKI RESORTS IN AUSTRIA
The main town in the beautiful Ziller Valley, Mayrhofen has earned its place among the top ski and snowboard resorts in the world.
There are two main ski areas, the Penken and the Ahorn, and the Zillertaler SuperSki pass provides an endless choice of runs, including the Hintertux Glacier which provides high altitude skiing all year round.
Mayrhofen in the Zillertal Valley combines everything we love about skiing in Austria. It has bags of Tirolean tradition with family run B&Bs spread out around the resort. It has high-tech facilities including the Penkenbahn cable car which whizzes skiers up the mountain in eight minutes (with free wifi so you can instantly share your favourite images to Instagram). It has sophisticated snow-making techniques with the potential to make snow for 73% of pistes and above all, it has a fun attitude.
WHAT OUR SKI EXPERTS SAY
Mayrhofen is great for families, couples & groups alike. A beautiful traditional Austrian resort, a great choice of accomodation. World class ski area & park facilities. Along with its famous aprés ski - done right!
Neal Collins, Topflight's Product Director
As well as its great après ski options, there are plenty of fantastic dining options available throughout Mayrhofen, too. One, in particular, is Schneekarhütte. Packing a powerful punch when it comes to slopeside dining, this popular mountain restaurant has an inviting, open fireplace and boasts an ambience so warm and welcoming. You may never want to leave. Expect delicious steaks and wines, with a side of exquisite mountain views.
Vans Penken Terrain Park
The jewel in Mayrhofen’s crown is the Van Penken terrain park, widely regarded as one of the best in Europe with six different areas – kids, fun, advanced, advanced kickers and pro. You’ll be forever adored if you bring aspiring freestylers here!
Lively Nightlife & Aprés Ski
Each winter the resort hosts two iconic mountain festivals – Snowbombing music festival and Altitude Comedy Festival which is curated by Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell. For après fun head to the Speak Easy Arena at Hotel Strass or Scotland Yard bar.
Mayrhofen cleverly appeals to both families and après-fans so if you want to experience the quieter, more rural side of this area, opt for accommodation that’s slightly out of the centre.
Even ski-jumping legend Eddie the Eagle loves skiing in Mayrhofen so you never know who you’ll find next to you on the chair lift! There are two main ski areas – the Penken and the Ahorn. The Zillertaler SuperSki pass provides an endless choice of runs for intermediates and a snow guarantee, thanks to the nearby Hintertux Glacier.
