What we love about Mayrhofen

Many of our visitors return to Mayrhofen year after year, but what is it that they like best about the resort? Do they have a favourite piste? How many times have they actually been here? Mayrhofen fan and blogger Gesa of Lilies Diary asked around on the mountain.

One of the best loved pistes on the Action Mount Penken, number 27.

I have visited Mayrhofen five times in the past two years. In fact, ’ve never been to another ski resort as many times as this one. In addition to the amazing Vans Penken park, the incredible views and relaxed atmosphere, the variety of the ski area especially appeals to me. There is truly something for every mood and every ability.

And, its clear that other visitors to Mayrhofen agree with me. When asking holidaymakers from around the world to name their favourite pistes, it soon becomes clear: those who appreciate great views love red 66 (also known as the Panorama piste). Those who like diversity head to red 10. And, those looking for a relaxing day prefer to head to the Leisure Mount Ahorn.

Read on to find out exactly what visitors love about Mayrhofen:

Janet (37, Wuppertal)

“We’ve spent a week in Mayrhofen every year for the past five years! As a ‘beginner’ I like the variety of the ski area. You can really learn a lot. The Ziller Valley Superski pass is also great; this year we have already used it to ski in the resort of Hochfügen.”
How many times have you visited Mayrhofen? 5 times.
Favourite Piste: The valley descent on the Ahorn.

Elisabeth (31, Kaltenbach)

“I love the great variety of freeride slopes in Mayrhofen. The ski area has it all: you can shred powder on wide fields or through forests. It’s awesome! The Grillhofalm by the park is also great. And, if you want to get more confident in the park, you can use your Ziller Valley Superski pass to visit the Shred School in the Zillertal Arena where professional snowboarders give free courses (every Tuesday from 11am, for every level).”
How many times have you visited Mayrhofen? Countless. She lives in the Ziller Valley…
Favourite Piste: The Park

Dennis (31, Ireland)

“I have lost count of how many times I have been here. This is already my second visit this year. Mayrhofen is just amazing. I have so many favourite runs! The pistes are long and varied… The park is really great, but the Ahorn has a wonderful view of the valley. There is just so much on offer in Mayrhofen!”

Favourite Piste: Vans Penken Park, red 26 to the Pilzbar, red 48 in Finkenberg, black 12 and the Ahorn!

Axel and Gabi (60 and 54, Hamburg)

“We have been here 52 times. Every year we visit for a week in summer and in winter. It’s a nine-hour drive from Hamburg, but it’s worth it! The ski area is so large that we never get bored. And now that the new ‘150 Tux’ gondola connects Mayrhofen to the Rastkogel area, the ski area is even bigger. Great!”

Favourite Piste: All of them!

Lena (31, Koblenz)

“The Ziller Valley has got to be the biggest playground in the world- in summer and in winter! I have been coming here for years, especially because I am a keen paraglider. Even if the weather is bad there is always something great to experience here. But what am I saying? In the Ziller Valley there is no such thing as bad weather! It’s always better than the weather forecast predicts! And then there are the welcoming locals who you can always count on for a friendly chat.”
How many times have you visited Mayrhofen? Countless!
Favourite Piste: Black 12, the valley descent from the Ahorn.

Kai (24, Kiel)

“I’m here on a ski trip which is really cool in Mayrhofen. You get to know people straight away. In the daytime I like to ride the small park. It’s perfect for practicing and having fun.”
How many times have you visited Mayrhofen? 2 times
Favorite Piste: The Park

Iris (37, Oldenburg)

“How often have I been here? I’ve lost count! At least five times! I love the whole Ziller Valley, the Zillertal Arena is also great. In Mayrhofen my favourite piste is the black run from the Schneekarhütte.”
How many times have you visited Mayrhofen? At least 5 times
Favourite Piste: Black 12

Virginia (41, Dortmund)

“The new Penken cable car is amazing. It really keeps things moving. I’ve also been to Ischgl quite a few times where you can sometimes queue for half an hour in the morning before you even get into a gondola!”
How many times have you visited Mayrhofen? 2 times
Favourite Piste: No particular favourite.

Claus (33, Chemnitz)

“My favourite piste? The Harakiri, of course! No, I’m just joking! The best run is the the Panorama Descent (number 66), it’s fantastic. You have such a beautiful view of the mountains.”
How many times have you visited Mayrhofen? 1st time
Favorite Piste: Red 66

Bruce and Mike (68, 60, England)

“It’s absolutely amazing here! In the morning we ski a few gentle circuits on the piste, relax over lunch, and then hit the après-ski in the evening. Mike came here ten years ago and could still remember the guitarist at out hotel. The Panorama piste 66 is good, because there are fewer people on it and in the evening we like to party in the Brück’n Stadl. We are here with a group of ten men and every year we say it will be our last time. Mayrhofen isn’t exactly making that decision easy though!”
How many times have you visited Mayrhofen? 1 and 2 times
Favourite Piste: Red 66

Charlotte (21, Hamm)

“I love it that there are so many different possibilities to try out freeriding just next to the piste. It’s perfect for learning! My favourite area is the “living room” as we call it: the woods between the Lärchenwald lift and the blue 29.”
How many times have you visited Mayrhofen? 6 times
Favourite Piste: Red 10, the “living room”

Rosanne, Maud, Sabine, Laura, Pien (Mitte 20, Netherlands)

“Mayrhofen is perfect for après-ski. Especially for us single ladies – there are always more men than girls out in the evening! During the daytime we prefer to ski the quieter side of the mountain at Finkenberg. There are also such great views from there. It’s so good here that we will definitely be coming back.”

Favourite Piste: Red 47,48 and 49

Joris (31, Netherlands)

“Mayrhofen is such a beautiful village with a wide range of great après-ski, but the mountain tops it all! When it comes to the ski area, I love it that there are so many different pistes. My favourites are the 66 with its great views as well as the run back to the Pilzbar. There you can really finish your ski day in style.”

Favourite Piste: Red 66, and red 27 to the Pilzbar

Max (29, Netherlands)

“I love it that Mayrhofen has something for everyone: a beginner can enjoy skiing here just as well as an advanced skier. For this reason, it’s a great destination for group ski trips.”

Favourite Piste: Red 10, blue 11

Gil (25, Israel)

“I love the atmosphere in the Park! There’s loads of friendly people and a cool hut to hang out in. It’s really relaxed and somehow the sun is always shining! I’ve never had this experience anywhere else. Oh yeah, and the new Penken is really “life changing”. Its fantastic how quickly you can now get on the mountain.”

Andrey, Taras and Dimitri (25, 26, 32, Ukraine)

“This morning we were skiing in Hochfügen and now we are checking out Mayrhofen. That’s why the Ziller Valley Superski pass is so amazing. We’ve already got lots of ideas of places to ski in Mayrhofen tomorrow. We’ll definitely do a variety of skiing – including off-piste. This is definitely somewhere you can really ski to your heart’s content!”

Favourite Piste: Backcountry

Damian (29, Ireland)

“I love the long and varied pistes. You can always ski somewhere new. Red 10, or blue 11, is the most fun: depending on whether you ski on the left or right hand side, the run is completely different.”
