Overview of Mayrhofen

Set in the beautiful Ziller Valley, the ski resort of Mayrhofen has long earned its place as one of the world's top ski and snowboard destinations. With lively, extensive nightlife and an attractive Tyrolean centre, the village has a tremendous reputation, fantastic skiing and an excellent English-speaking ski and snowboard school.

Mayrhofen is one of the most beautifully situated resorts in Austria. The buildings in the town are almost all of traditional Tyrolean chalet design giving the resort a natural ambience and a picturesque image.

The resort has also been a climbing and walking area for over 100 years. Its location in the wide and flat-bottomed Ziller Valley adds to its appeal. The Ziller Valley is famous for the classical and awesome beauty of the surrounding mountains. Mayrhofen has a well-deserved reputation amongst British skiers with the ski area being situated on two separate plateaux, the Penken and the Ahorn. The Super Zillertal ski area offers incredible skiing for all levels of skier.

Skiing in Mayrhofen offers a huge choice of pistes. There is a free ski bus service connecting a vast 625km of skiable terrain encompassing the ski resorts of Zell am Ziller, Gerlos, Königsleiten and the Hintertux glacier.

Mayrhofen has a thriving après ski scene. The bustling ski resort is full of shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and is famous for fun-packed après-ski, nightlife and live music. Surrounded by towering mountains, Mayrhofen is a fantastic resort for both skiers and non-skiers.

Lift Passes in Mayrhofen

The lift pass we have available in Mayrhofen is known as the “SuperSkiPass” and not only does it cover Mayrhofen but the entirety of the Zillertal Valley.

Mayrhofen itself is large enough and offers a variety of terrain to keep most people content for at least a week. There are further ski areas a short ride away on the free bus service all covered by one lift pass meaning there is more than enough piste for everyone. Even if you don’t get around all of the areas we recommend the Hintertux glacier as one in particular that is well worth exploring.
