ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
Cruise across the mountain, and explore the slopes of Eggalm on one of your 6 days skiing with your fellow Freshtrackers and Ski Club Rep. The mountain is ideal for intermediates and advanced Intermediates, if you are unsure of your skiing standard please look on our Ski Profile Page for more information.
You’ll spend 7 nights chalet board at Skiworld’s 3* Chalet Stoanerhof staying in single occupancy rooms. The chalet is close to the piste, with intermediate skiers able to ski back in normal snow conditions. The Ahorn cable car located 200m away is the closest lift, with the Penken Gondola and the lively but picturesque village centre of Mayrhofen approximately a ten minute walk away. After a day’s skiing you can relax in the bar, or soak up the last rays on the terrace and sauna.
Scheduled return flights and transfers are included, with ski carriage available only when pre-booked with our Freshtrack team (which is limited). The group coach transfer will be organised by Ski World hosts, please look out for them in the arrivals hall at the airport.
Even as the village has grown, the buildings have stayed traditional in design and for its size it is quite attractive. The steep valley makes for impressive scenery but it does mean that in mid-winter the town is often in the shade. Crucially the valley road bypasses the village so the centre is very quiet, albeit not completely pedestrianised. Mayrhofen has a great reputation for après. It all kicks off at the top of the Penkenbahn in the Pilzbar and unlike in most resorts, the download down the gondola makes for a safe return afterwards. Revellers then pour off the gondola into Ice Bar and Bruck’n Stadl where the table dancing kicks off. We’d also recommend Mike’s Sportsbar – it is very popular with Brits and has live sport on big screens. Of course there’s the 78% Harakari piste, which rightly has a reputation as a very steep and challenging run. Elsewhere the blacks are much less intimidating, but there is some great off piste in the area following fresh snowfall. Advanced skiers will want to clock up the miles by visiting as many of the other resorts in the Zillertal as possible – but note that none of the resorts offer serious challenges for experts.
If you require ski hire in resort we recommend the Skiset shop where you can receive up to a 60% discount and recommend pre-booking online.
