Mayrhofen

Ski resorts in Austria
Mayrhofen belong to Zillertal Arena.

Mayrhofen is one of those places that is just extremely easy to get to; the transfer from Innsbruck takes no more than an hour. When you get there, close to 2000 meters fall height of the Austrian Alps open up in front of you, with a maximum height of 2500 meters. Just because the fall height is a large number it doesn't necessarily mean that the distance to ski is always long. With its 39 degrees, Harakiri in Mayrhofen is Austria's steepest pisted slope. Fortunately, the ski area is large and there are plenty of places to go for both beginners and experienced skiers, both prepared slopes and off-piste.

Mayrhofen is also the largest village and a short drive to the only ski area in Austria that is open all year round, Hintertux. Summer skiing is offered on the Hintertux Glacier. A glacier that stretches all the way up to 3250 meters. To get there you need to jump on a bus, which should not be a problem as buses are always running when Hintertux is open.

Nice place in the Zillertal with close to the Hintertux glacier. When I have been here I have lived in Lanersbach which is a cozy little town snap higher up from the city itself. There are really good offpiste opportunities if you take the Eggalm cabin and then the anchor Bellspitzlift and then go up the comb. There is also good pudding around Rastkogel.
Mayrhofen has good piste skiing with long beautiful yard, lots of chairlifts. They also have a really good park with everything from 3 big big air, to lots of different rail / bonk / spine / walls / pipe features.
Good variety with goa beer places, absolutely ok after skiing as well as the right good food.
Hintertuxen is also really go !!

Been there 2 times, in March, once with friends and second time with the family. The village is 2 hours from Munich Airport, so it is easy to rent a car and go there on your own. When I've been there, it's been spring and almost snowy down in the village, but good with snow in the slopes, perfect!

I have lived centrally within walking distance to Penken and Ahorn to escape the sometimes unreliable ski bus. Rarely drops pistons or feels late, so I do not talk about it. The village is nice, but not directly charming. The mountains are beautiful, the lifts are modern, the slopes are fine but they get well broken after lunch and the pistons might be a bit better. Right many rich Russians with limited skiing ability, but it is well in the whole of the Alps nowadays. No giant system, but together with other systems in the Ziller Valley, it is more than enough. A serious fun park in the middle of the sun with younger crowds, perfect if you belong to that target group. Fairly cheap, never more than 4 euros for a beer, a yellow cheese for about 5.

Recommends a trip to Little Ahorn this morning to avoid sex to Penken that occurs after 08.30. The only congestion is in the morning and in the afternoon, otherwise the lift queues are tiny in March.

Best is Hintertux in fine weather, absolutely amazing! But avoid blowing.

A good system with not so many people. Fits the best if you would like to go around a little by bus or car to other Tuxertal systems which are very good, otherwise a little bit for a week.
Was there 2012 1 day week 9 and had dumped alot the night before.

+ Very few people who go offpiste. Could go untouched offpist just outside the piste all day after snowfall.
+ Did not have a pistachio some backs pist 17 after snowfall. Have never been to similar. The black back was filled with 30-50 cm of snow and only to drive over and over again.
+ Not much queues, despite week 9.

-Posts very sporadically after snowfall (if you prioritize pistachio).
- Customer replaced some tow lifts with more modern.
-Ahorn - What's this for a bad system ???
-Eggalm is a little clumsy with the rest of the system to get back from. Do not definitely take the bus there / from there, there are 10 trips worse.

Warning for Hotel Gasthof Brucke.

Just got home from Mayrhofen, which was the top. Defend dock for Hotel Gasthof Brucke. We had a break in our hotel room. The staff at the hotel could not explain it and the entry and exit log for our door was not registered except when we went in and out. The police could not see any damage to the balcony door, windows or hotel room door. We then asked if it means that you can enter the hotel rooms without a key from the hotel which the police confirmed.

Hotel staff handled the whole situation in a very sad way and with incredibly cuddly attitude.

So, avoid the Hotel Gasthof Brucke.

Ching!

Mayrhofen, the place for those who want a wonderful nightlife combined with a glorious skiing. Mayrhofen offers a wide choice of slopes ranging from children's area to the extreme Harakiri. The offpiste is relatively good. A tip for those who are here and never before Mayrhofen is to be up early and take one of the first lifts up, otherwise there is a risk of long queues. If it's sunny and nice weather, Hintertux is a hot alternative.

A really nice ski resort with world-class skiing.
Varied with slopes that suits the whole family.
There are good off-pistes also the one who dares to put on it !! = D

It's the only place in the alps I've been to and it's barely comparable to Swedish mountains!

Have fun if you go there!

3rd time we take you this year, awesome place I have to say! Extremely good park with all variety, nice offpiste rides and slopes with great variety. Everything from Austria's steepest back to the always nice 13th hill for the family!

Top spot!

4th consecutive year in Mayrhofen. 3rd year as a family father. 2nd year with mild snow, 1st year with combination flight train.

This year the rating is 4.5 out of 5 and it's the combination of the simplicity to get there, a wide range of accommodation, a city that offers something for everyone (even awesome to be daddy in the village with children who do not ski yet), good skiing from "Penken" to Hintertux as "the top of the iceberg", good skiing schools, which offer Swedish skiing instructors, Mayrhofen's hospitality and have a good range of restaurants - ranging from the local traditional food to the local "Chinese"

This year it dumped in a crowd - no skibums, hash-pulks and no restrictions in the off-piste country Mayrhofen

Look at "do not eat yellow snow" skiing film from mayrhofen at you tube

All time ski resort!
Really good skiing. When the sun is shining it's amazing.
Good with snow, it is believed that it was sunny and +15 C down in the village.
Good lift system with newer lifts everywhere.
  The world's best bus driver is here.
You can also go to the other places in zillertal = 60 mil piste, variation is always guessed.


Really good place.

mmmmm

Really lovely place with lots of skiing both inside and outside the piste. Snow proof with the high altitude and the glacier and although it had not been snowing for a while while we were there, snow was plentiful.

Spent most time in Hintertux, where the best ride was. All parts are worth a visit, but Hintertux is the best. I hardly visited the parks but what I saw seemed good.

Go here if you can :)
