Ski holidays in Mayrhofen

Fun, friendly, snow-sure skiing in one of Austria’s favourite resorts

Mayrhofen ski resort lies at the end of the Ziller Valley where keen skiers and those seeking lively après-ski and nightlife are well catered for in a big, wide-open ski area which stretches out on both sides of the valley. One of Europe’s best summer-skiing resorts, Hintertux, is within fairly easy reach. The main street is predominantly pedestrianised –a mix of Tyrolean-style chalets, and four-star hotels. The main Mayrhofen skiing is high above the tree-line on the Penken, which rises way above the town and is reached by a large gondola in the centre of town. The Zillertal Superskipass covers the whole of the Ziller Valley, including the resorts of Fügen, Kaltenbach, Zell am Ziller, Gerlos, Finkenberg, Lanersbach and the glacier at Hintertux - an incredible total of over 515km of pistes and 200 lifts connected by a free bus or train. If you feel like an extra challenge, try what the resort markets as “the steepest groomed run in Austria” – called, predictably, Hara Kiri. It is indeed steep, but so short that even an intermediate could tackle it. The après-ski and nightlife is extensive with bars, pubs and clubs.
