Mayrhofen is home to the steepest piste in Austria, the black Harakiri. A great way for advanced skiers to test themselves on the mountain. The off-piste skiing opportunities are great too in the Zillertal area, above and below the treeline. Beginners have dedicated areas at the top of the mountain. The Pepis Kinderland on the Penken summit and the Übungsland Penken at the top of the Penkenbahn are both beginner ski areas. There are gentle blues on the Ahorn to progress from.
Families can enjoy the new Fun Ride Ahorn park which has child-friendly obstacles as well as a skicross course. There is a great selection of ski schools and childcare facilities to choose from. Restaurants also have a great welcoming atmosphere and kid’s menus in the village. Off the slopes, the Erlebnisbad swimming complex is very popular.
Mayrhofen ski resort has an excellent party reputation with the famous Snowbombing music festival staged every April. There is also great après-ski spots on and off the slopes to visit throughout the season.
The village itself still has a traditional alpine charm. Enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery from the bottom of the steep valley village location. The main road passing through the ski resort is mainly quiet, so it has a pedestrianised feel to it. A great place to relax or party depending on your preference.
