Its a very extensive resort including the Penken, Horberg, Rastkogel and Eggalm areas. The runs are mostly red with a few challenging blacks and would suit all levels of intermediate skier. Mayrhofen town is low and the skiing is accessed by a gondola from the centre of the town, expect queues up in the morning and down in the evening. Lift equipment is modern and efficient. Mayrhofen is best suited to intermediates and better skiers, while the off piste possibilities looked good – if only there was more snow! Pistes are generally short and straight. ...

Id have to say this is thus far my favourite ski resort; however as a more experienced skier now Im not so sure Id enjoy it as much now. Id say if you are a keen beginner or timid intermediate or someone who doesn feel the need to cover mile after mile of piste go and Im sure youll love it. If you crave distance you may get a little bored. The Apres, character, Charm, friendliness, Ski school was all first class. As too was the hotel Kramirwert. A lovely place and nice for couples or party goers alike. ...

Both Maurhofen and the neighbouring resorts offer superb boarding, particularly for freestyle, and the snowboard park is amazing. Mayrhofen is a lively resort which boosts an active apres ski scene. There are two downsides to this resort though. One, you can't board down towards the village. Second, the snow record isn't that great. ...

The area is huge you have a big choice of different lifts, slopes and freeride opportunities. For freeriding go under the 150er Tux very steep long powder runs. The penken funpark is very famous in Tirol. Good kickers, rails and obstacles for beginners and experts. You will find every different kind of slopes even the steepest prepared slope of Austria is there. The slopes are long and wide and most of them are on the sunny side.
There are many beautiful huts where you get very good original food. You also have a lot of après ski possibilities. Many in the skiing areas and the other ones in the villages where you will also find discos, bars and restaurants.
The Hintertuxer glacier is ...

The Zillertal valley is an enormous ski range and since I worked there it has had numerous chairlifts installed making the links so much quicker. The two main ski areas from the town are the Penkan and the Ahorn mountains. The Penkan, accessed by a fast gondola system next to the Sport Hotel Strass, is the larger of the two with 49 lifts and over 150km of runs. It can get annoyingly busy though so I found it a lot better to hit the Ahorn mountain in peak season times. It now boasts the biggest Austrian cable car able to take 160 people at a time so you shouldn’t have to wait around too long to get up to the top. I found the Ahorn an ideal place to learn boarding too as it has a fantast...
