Mayrhofen is one of the top ski destinations in Europe, if not the world. 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 or nearly 700km in the whole area including Hintertux and Finkenberg.

Mayrhofen enjoys the use of 2 mountains, the Penken-Horberg, linked to the Rastkogel-Eggalm and the smaller Ahorn. Although you cannot ski all the way down to Mayrhofen, 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 runs 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 runs if the snow cover is good, which is often!

Mayrhofen enjoys a very lively apres-ski, with 14 bars, 3 discos and even a casino for those wishing to try their hand at the table. However, those seeking a little bit of peace can easily avoid the hustle but generally those who like a night out will revel in the atmosphere here and bring a new meaning to Tea Dancing!!
