Mayrhofen Ski Resort
Mayrhofen is a pretty Austrian town lying in the base of the Ziller Valley. It is popular with Brits and is well known for having a lively party scene, both on the mountain in the après-ski huts and also in the village.
Mayrhofen itself sits at 630m, but a long cable car up to the main ski area gets you to the slopes in no time. The slopes rise to 2590m and there is plenty of terrain to choose from (620km of pistes), although the resort is probably best suited to beginners and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. In recent years Mayrhofen has become a mecca for freestyle skiers and snowboarders and boasts a world-class terrain park. The resort is also famous for the annual snow and music festival 'Snowbombing' which takes place late season each year.
For early and late season skiing, the Ziller pass also covers the glacier resort of Hintertux, so even if snow cover is sparse in Mayrhofen, skiing is guaranteed in Hintertux, with the slopes rising to 3250m.
Did You Know?
Mayrhofen is home to Austria's largest cable car. Capable of holding 160 people, the Ahornbahn cable car whisks skiers and snowboarders up to the Ahorn area of the ski area, across the valley from the main side.
