Snowboarding in the Zillertal starts in Mayrhofen .
What applies to skiers also applies to boarders: maximum slope action, freestyle and freeride at its best and absolute snow guarantee.
For all those who prefer a board to two boards, 542 kilometres of slopes in Zillertal's snowboard areas are waiting to get your pulse racing and put a big smile on your face. At the latest when you arrive at the top station. Because then the white experience world of the Zillertal lies at your feet. With it, countless off-piste areas that provide luxurious powder for anticipation. Ingenious fun parks like the Penken Park, which is one of the best and most extraordinary in the Alps and the slopes, which are groomed for you every night by tireless piste bullies for your perfect moment on the slopes. Snowboarding in the Zillertal starts in Mayrhofen at our Resort Hotel Neuhaus. From there you can reach the ski areas in the Zillertal comfortably and quickly with the free ski bus. And the legendary slopes of the Penken and Ahorn are only a short walk away from your holiday home. Conquer Mayrhofen and the Zillertal with your snowboard and leave nothing but white dust behind.
Did we mention that the Penken Park at Actionberg Penken is one of the best and most diverse in the Alps and all of Europe? We'd even say it's the best but as Mayrhofers we're probably a little biased. Six different areas inspire beginners, advanced and absolute freestyle cracks alike in the Horbergtal at the Penken. You can expect a Pro Area, Advanced Area, Advanced Jib Area, Medium Area, Medium Jib Area and a Kids Area for the snowboard geeks of the future. The Penken Park has its own 4-seater chairlift that takes you to the beginning of the park – as often as you like. In addition to jumps, ramps, rails, slides, boxes, wallrides, corners and hips, the Penken Park also includes fluid lines and well-worn obstacles as well as the gigantic multi-jib "Beastbox". Discover for yourself what else is included. One thing is for sure: you and your snowboard will have the time of your life in Mayrhofen in the Zillertal. The same goes for freestyle skiers, of course.
Freeriding in the Zillertal
Freeriding is also for skiers. But we think it's only fair to include this point on this page, where otherwise only ski resorts are mentioned. In and around Mayrhofen there are countless freeride areas for snowboarding on the finest powder snow. The whole Zillertal is a freeride paradise. Endless expanses, lush powder and not a single track: the honour is yours.
Plunge down the slope and float towards the valley. Over 65 freeride runs await you between 1,000 and 2,000 meters above sea level-that is, where the crème de la crème of fresh snow is at home. In the skiing area of Mayrhofen and the skiing areas of the Zillertal you don't even need to carry your snowboard on your back: 80 % of the runs can be reached by lifts, which take you up to heights of 3,250 metres. From November to May there is a 100% snow guarantee. This means that most of the 300 kilometres of freeride area are skiable. Our tip: If you have little experience in freeriding, it is best to take a local freeride guide. And even professionals are advised to check the avalanche situation regularly. Safety first.
