Mayrhofen ski resort

Ski resort closed

Open lifts 6/47

Famous for its insanely steep Harakiri piste and loved for its large snowpark, Mayrhofen is one of the top wintersports destinations in Tirol for intermediate and expert skiers, yet also offers plenty of gentle runs for beginners and families.

The gradient of 78% tells you everything you need to know about the infamous Harakiri piste in Mayrhofen. Indeed, standing at the top, the run seems even more intimidating than numbers could ever suggest. It is quite simply the steepest ski run in Austria – and the biggest attraction in Mayrhofen. However, this popular resort at the end of the Zillertal Valley has much more to offer than just adrenaline-pumping action. Its large network of pistes caters for all abilities and ambitions, including families, beginners and cruisers, and extends all the way up to 2,500m.

Those who like to take it easy on the slopes can do so in the Ahorn area with its gentle, wide slopes ideal for carving. The White Lounge at 2,000 metres above sea level is a combination of an igloo village, a bar and a chillout zone. Advanced and expert skiers and snowboarders should head for the Penken, Rastkogel and Eggalm section of the resort. Freestylers flock to the famous Penken Park, which is the resort's second big attraction alongside the Harikiri slope. All in all there are eight different areas in Mayrhofen.

The resort is also home to plenty of huts and restaurants serving excellent local food. And anyone who has energy left to burn after a long day on the slopes can hit the dancefloor at one of the après-ski bars next to the slopes or in the village of Mayrhofen itself.
