 For some years the Mayrhofen ski slopes have been connected to the Finkenberg, Rastkogel and Eggalm slopes.

With 51 lifts, the slopes in the Mayrhofen Skiing Area can be mastered daily from 08.30 to 16.30 hrs.

Specially recommended circuits from the cable car company promise various highlights, fun and action; like for example up to 13,000m difference in altitude in once circuit - with the so called "Höhenmeterfresser" route. If that's still not enough, these is also the challenge of snowboarding. Because the Mayrhofen Skiing Area offers a fun park - named one of the best in the German-speaking Alps - with various obstacles and a 120m-long half pipe.

The skiing area on the PENKEN offers every visitor a varied experience on the piste! From sunny and treeless summit slopes, wide carver areas and demanding steep north-facing slopes, powder runs etc. - everything is on offer here. A particular highlight is a descent on the "Harakiri", Austria's steepest ski slope. For snow boarders there's Vans Penken Park. The fastest cable car boarding and shortest waiting times are offered by the Hobergbahn.

The Ahornbahn, the largest shuttle cable car in Austria with room for 160 people, takes you up to the panoramic Ahorn plateau in just six and a half minutes. The AHORN is a real insider’s tip for beginners, newcomers and families, who will find ideal conditions on the gentle slopes around the 2,000m Ahorn plateau. Athletic skiers are also well catered for by the challenging 5.5 kilometre descent to Mayrhofen. Those good on their feet can take a sharp intake of breath on the maintained panoramic footpath and enjoy the sensational views.

If you have ever been keen to sit on a sledge and race down a snowy hillside or watch your kids in amazement - then we have the right suggestion for you.

Natural Toboggan Run from Gasthof Wiesenhof
The toboggan run begins at an altitude of around 1,560 metres at the Gasthof Wiesenhof.

Gerlosstein Toboggan Run (longest natural toboggan run in the Zillertal)
This toboggan run is located on the Hainzenberg and, with a total length of 7 km, is the longest floodlit natural toboggan run in the Zillertal.

Snowshoeing.........No other activity enables such a close contact with the tranquillity of the winter mountain landscape. In the woods only a few tracks from deer, rabbits and foxes break the perfect white snow blanket. No specific previous knowledge is required, so that non-skiers also get the opportunity to experience the mountain winters with friends or colleagues.

Ski & Snowboardtours........Due to the growing popularity of free riding, more and more boarders and skiers venture into the back country – for good skiers and boarders the fun starts where the piste ends.
