Mayrhofen Ski Resort
Located in the heart of the Austrian Zillertal Valley, Mayrhofen is a resort for all – whether you’re looking for a family holiday or a week of lively après.
Although the 139km of local slopes might sound slightly limited, there is excellent variety and fast lifts at every corner – there’s been 26 new lifts here since 2000. Access has been improved significantly thanks to the Penkenbahn gondola from town and new this year is the Möslbahn, another fast gondola to whisk skiers and boarders up to the Penken mountain. Be sure to purchase the Zillertaler Superskipass for your stay at it covers the entire valley – there’s 530km of pistes and the Hintertux Glacier to explore.
The town itself has something for everyone, including families and those looking to party. Try and stay as close to the Penkenbahn as possible for the easiest access to the slopes, but don’t worry if you’re further out as the bus system in the valley is very good.
The Ski Club Rep Service is bound to be a great draw for members this winter – we’re in town this year between January and March. The club also hosts a dedicated social hour at Mo's Café, the perfect setting for a post-skiing beer.
And before you head out to the resort this season, be sure to join the 100+ community of Mayrhofen-mad Ski Club members on the Mayrhofen Facebook Page.
What's New for 2019/20?
Mayrhofen has not invested heavily in infrastructure for the new season but it has made a few small tweaks. It has brought the first gondola forward to 7:30am up Mount Ahorn to allow early risers to take advantage of the freshly prepared 5.5km valley run Ahorn. There is also a new family park at the Fun Ride Ahorn. This provides child-friendly obstacles and adds to the existing three pistes which were specially development combining elements from boarder cross and ski cross.
