I have skiied in Mayrhofen a few times with a group of friends and we are looking forward to another trip back at new year. The skiing area is enormous when you consider that there is the whole Zillertal region to explore and not just the Ahorn and the Penken, and runs/routes can be found to suit all abilities. As a tip for groups of skiers looking to avoid the Penkenbahn queues in the morning, we found that by far the best way was to order a minibus taxi to take us to the Eggalmbahn/Horbergbahn, that way you have an empty ski lift and the runs haven't yet been reached by the hordes going up the Penkenbahn! Sure, the buses are free, but you have to be right on time to get them as they don't

I have been boarding for 12 years and have been fortunate for the last 3 to be engaged to a girl from Mayrhofen. Mayrhofen is a fantastic ski area, especially if you have the ability to be able to get away from the busier areas, as the few learner slopes in the peak season are an absolute nightmare and should be avoided at all costs. For the intermediates and above the whole area is a bit of a playground and there is wide and various boarding/ skiing available. Firstly, avoid penkenbahn unless you like the crowds. horbergbahn or finkenberg are a lot more relaxing and all end up in the same place pretty much as the areas are all linked. Loads of great off piste stuff, but can be prone to the

Cute little town with just about all you need. Penken lift in the middle town is a pain, but early risers will not queue. The runs are serviced by a fantastic lift system. We only took 1 drag all week & that was to beat the snow cats. There is a 150 man Cable-Car which goes to a fairly flat a pointless part of the mountain. The 'Bowl' though is fantastic and can get very cold (-17C). Mostly reds and a few blacks are a cravers dream and Hari Kari (78%) will test the best. The park is ok though the park up the road at Hintertux is better. The ski pass includes Hintertux, Zell Am Ziller. Beginners should go to Ahorn to the wide blue and progressive reds to carve. Off-Piste is as easy here.

There some fantastic skiing in and around Mayrhofen. If you try Gerlos and Konigsleiten for example there is every chance you will have the piste to yourself outside of main hoilday weeks and like the rest of the Zillertal the lifts are modern and efficient. I have been skiing this area for 19 years now. Try the sledge lodges at Lannersbach in the day or evening.T hey have 5km flood light runs which without doubt are some of the best in the world.
