Skiing holiday in the Zillertal: Mayrhofen in winter, skiing and amazement .
Skiing in the best ski valley in the world is...outstanding. Boundless snow. Incomparably diverse
Over 542 kilometres of pistes are almost impossible to master in just one ski holiday in the Zillertal. It's a good thing that winter comes again every year. The skiing pleasure that can be had is the highest level in the most active valley in the world. This title has been joined in 2021 with the title "Best Ski Valley" - awarded by the world's largest ski website. What does that mean exactly? That you can ski and snowboard in the Zillertal ski areas for an entire winter. And with the best snow conditions. Thanks to the optimal altitude of a large part of the slopes longer and better than in many other ski resorts. Then there's the Hintertux Glacier, which promises skiing and snowboarding fun all year round. The best thing about skiing holidays in the Zillertal with your Resort Hotel Neuhaus in Mayrhofen is that skiing and snowboarding starts very close to your room, suite or apartment. You can reach the Penkenbahn in about 12 minutes on foot, the Ahornbahn in just over 15 minutes. So your skiing holiday in the Zillertal starts in the centre of the legendary skiing area Mayrhofen-Hippach.
Skiing at the pleasure mountain Ahorn
As the name suggests, the Ahorn is a mountain for true connoisseurs. For all those for whom skiing is also panoramic pleasure. Who want to glide down wide slopes into the valley and be completely in the moment. For beginners, newcomers and families - but also for experts who appreciate variety and perfectly groomed slopes. The latter especially enjoy the somewhat more challenging 5.5-kilometre run to Mayrhofen, the only black run on the Ahorn pleasure mountain. It measures a whole 1,400 metres in altitude and is a real highlight for connoisseurs who love challenges. A particularly wintry-sporty experience is the Ahorn family circuit. Explore the ski area with your children and discover the most beautiful pistes for carving and gentle turns.
Shredding at the action
The 5-star skiing area of Mayrhofner Bergbahnen with its 142 kilometres of pistes naturally includes the Ahorn's bigger cousin, the action mountain Penken. There the red slopes predominate and in between there are always black ones to be found, such as the adrenaline-packed Harakiri slope. With a gradient of 78%, it is not only the blackest slope in the entire Zillertal, it is also the steepest slope in Austria.
Harakiri is really only for professionals – for those who don't quite dare, we recommend the Devil's Run. It is considered the "Harakiri Test" among the locals. If this run is a cinch for you, then you are ready for the icy baptism of fire. However, the Penken doesn't just have slopes for daredevil pros-numerous blue runs for enjoyable skiing in Mayrhofen for connoisseurs can be found all along the Penken. Fun sport fans are attracted to the Penken Park like a magnet. In one of the largest snowparks in Europe, spread over 6 areas, jumps, ramps, rails, slides, boxes, wallrides, corners and hips make every freestyler's heart beat faster.
