Mayrhofen - Information

Resort Information  Mayrhofen

Mayrhofen is one of the top ski destinations in Europe, if not the world and is located in the stunning Ziller Valley. Mayrhofen is blessed with stunning scenery as well as superb skiable terrain and a lively nightlife scene. The ski region itself is linked with Rastkogel, Finkenberg and Egglam ski areas, all under the banner of the Zillertal 3000, giving skiiers over 150 kms of pistes. The nightlife in Mayrhofen is kicking with bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants a plenty.Mayrhofen enjoys the use of 2 mountains, the Penken-Horberg, linked to the Rastkogel-Eggalm, and the smaller Ahorn. Although you can't ski all the way down to Mayrhofen throughout the entire season, you can either take the gondola directly, or try the unpisted Finkenberg or Hippach routes if there is sufficient snow cover. Generally the Ahorn is better for beginners, as the runs around Rastkogel can often be mogulled. Experts meanwhile can enjoy the suicidal Harakiri run, the steepest in Austria, at 38 degrees (78%!), or for those slightly less confident, the unpisted trails to Hippach are a good challenge. Intermediates are the best suited at Mayrhofen, with some good long runs on Rastkogel, and Eggalm. Ahorn again, has more gentle blue runs, great for nervous intermediates. If at any time you fancy a change though, each of the main valleys under the Ziller pass makes for a good days skiing. Beginners can enjoy either the Ahorn nursery slopes, which are high, sunny and reasonably large, or the Penken nursery slopes. Off-piste, there are some great trails if the snow cover is good.
