157 kilometres of piste, 28 huts and restaurants, 49 lifts and 100 hectares of piste (with snow machines) – the greater “Zillertal 3000” ski region is extended from Mayrhofen by the Penkenbahn and from Schwendau by the Horbergbahn.
The other ski area of Mayrofen, the Ahorn ski region, is well suited for families. It can also offers ideal practice slopes for beginners and children. The 5,5 kilometres -long valley descent (with snow machines) will appeal to very good skiers. One special feature is Ahorn Kinderland, a large children´s playground at an altitude of 2000 metres – somewhere for children to really let off steam in the snow.
A special hit or rather a must is theharakiri run which is Austria’s steepest ski run. And the great thing about it: It is a groomed run and therefore accessible to anyone how is looking for the ultimate snow adventure. Who ever goes for it is already a winner because it takes courage, stamina and the right technique to get back to the Knorren chair lift for the next “round”. Snowboarders get the ultimate kick in the Burton park The distinction “ambitious” does not only apply to the skiing area, but as well to the modern lift operations, the huts and the legendary Zillertal après-ski
