Not just skiing...
The ski area has a huge range of variety to satisfy every skier, with classic carving slopes of all degrees of difficulty, wonderful freeride possibilities and not forgetting the Harakiri, Austria's steepest downhill with a gradient of 78%! With 147 snow cannons, Mayrhofen can also guarantee 100% quality conditions on the slopes, kept perfectly groomed by the Mayrhofen Cable Car company. You can enjoy ideal skiing conditions and a wide choice of traditional ski huts.
Snowboarding: Vans Penken Park
The Vans Penken Park has in recent years been transformed from a well-kept secret into a paradise for snowboarders and freeskiers! Alongside the excellent freeriding possibilities on powder both above and below the tree line, the Mayrhofen Cable Car company offers a park with music for snowboarders and freeskiers: the variety and quality of the jumps sets it apart from other Tyrolean fun parks.
Ideal conditions are ensured every day by a team of professional fun park shapers. It is also the only park with its own quad chairlift that stretches the whole length of the park. The clear delineation into three levels of difficulty means that beginners as well as experts and professionals will find exactly what they want.
Tobogganing – fun for all the family!
If you fancy sitting on a toboggan and whizzing down a snowy slope or trail, the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region is the place for you:
The Gasthof Wiesenhof’s natural toboggan run: this starts at an altitude of 1,560 metres at the Gasthof Wiesenhof. Here can you stoke up beforehand with a delicious meal and a warm drink before tobogganing all the way down to Mayrhofen. As the natural toboggan run is not illuminated, we recommend you take a torch.
The Gerlosstein toboggan run: this toboggan run is located on the Hainzenberg mountain and, with a total length of 7 km, is the longest illuminated natural toboggan run in the Zillertal. It is quick and easy to reach the toboggan run at 1,650 metres using the Gerlosstein lift. There are inns on the way down should you fancy a relaxing break.
There are other toboggan runs in Zell, Ginzling and Hochfügen.
Several sports shops offer toboggans for hi
