Ski holidays in Mayrhofen

Mayrhofen sits at the end of the Ziller Valley before it rises into the Tux Valley, Mayrhofen is a firm favourite with British skiers and offers some excellent skiing. The après-ski is varied to suit everyone and ranges from quiet restaurants to lively bars and night clubs.

The Mayrhofen ski area was expanded a few years ago to include the lifts of Lanersbach and the Eggalm and now covers over 140km of piste, while the whole area covered by the Super Zillertal pass including the Hintertux glacier extends to almost 500km of piste!

Beginners will find some excellent slopes on the Penken mountain, at over 1800m, reached by the Penken gondola. As much of the skiing lies between 1500m and 2500m you should find good snow conditions here throughout the season. For the intermediate and advanced skier this huge area will allow you to choose runs ideally suited to your requirements, from cruising motorways to challenging mogul fields.
