the Zillertal
and a Winter
of Diversity.

Just as there is the action mountain Penken and the pleasure mountain Ahorn in the Mayrhofen ski area, a winter with many sides awaits you in the Zillertal. And each one of them is unique. Breath-taking natural spectacles, sporty-active highlights and a very special attitude to life that touches, delights and ensures boundless enthusiasm are as much a part of winter in the Alps as the warmth to our sauna world and the panoramic view to the horizon.


With your Resort Hotel Neuhaus in the Zillertal, winter begins for you at the doorstep. And extends far up to the peaks of the 2,000 m peaks, which glow in the morning sun and shimmer in the moonlight in the evening. Unlock the well-kept secrets of the Zillertal winter mountains and experience Mayrhofen in the Zillertal winter. When an eventful blanket of snow stretches from peak to peak and the valley below becomes a white wonderland of wonder, enjoyment and relaxation.

Your ski winter in the Zillertal measures 542 kilometres of slopes.

And every single one of them is a dream in white, a boundless, powdery declaration of love. Perfectly prepared for elegant tracks, for adrenaline-pumping runs. For beginners, advanced skiers and professionals. For all those who only have one wish when they arrive at the valley station: To go up again and experience everything from the beginning. You can do that. And in unbeatable conditions. With the Zillertal Superskipass you can experience a winter of superlatives. With just one ticket you have access to all ski areas in the Zillertal. The Superskipass is valid from 2 to 21 days. By the way, the slopes are located very close to your Resort Hotel Neuhaus in Mayrhofen.

Virgin snow and rapid descents

The Mayrhofner Bergbahnen open up two mountains that could not be more different. There is the Ahorn, which makes the hearts of powder snow enthusiasts, ski tourers and winter hikers beat faster with its deep snow-covered slopes. It invites you onto its slopes to take in the spectacular panorama of the surrounding mountains while you perfect your turns. And which reinvents après-ski with an igloo bar and chill out area after the 5.5-kilometre-long downhill run. Then there's the Penken, a ski area that combines several ski areas at once – one of the largest in Austria. Home of the Harakiri slope. Home of the Vans Penken Freestyle Park. Home to 142 kilometres of varied pistes. Numerous ski huts and breath-taking panoramas. What do both mountains have in common? They are both very close to the Neuhaus in Mayrhofen. The resort hotel for your winter holiday in the Zillertal.

The snowboard areas of the Zillertal.

Powder, slopes and the Vans Penken Park, these are just some of the buzzwords when it comes to snowboarding in the Zillertal. And only when we talk about Mayrhofen. What's more, snowboarders are offered the same facilities as skiers, with 542 kilometres of the finest snow, prepared every night for a great start in the morning. It's actually unfair that we only ever talk about ski resorts. That's why we at Neuhaus are dedicating a whole page to snowboarding in the Zillertal. Full of steep performances, daredevil stunts, slides, jumps and packed with all the information about the Vans Penken Park, which delights all snowboarders on six areas with wallrides, jibs, kickers, a rainbow box and much more. Really everyone, even children,  will find suitable obstacles, jumps and exciting courses in the Kids Park.

Winter Experiences

Winter adventure, romance in the snow, family time or relaxing days of happiness - decide every day anew what winter in the Zillertal is for you today.

Ski touring. Get up close and personal with the mountain.

The ski areas of the Zillertal are impressive, no question. But if you want to encounter untouched mountain nature beyond the pistes, find your happiness by going ski touring. Start hiking very close to our Neuhaus and slowly feel your way up the mountain. From gentle ascents to slopes that are better tackled only by advanced skiers, you will find numerous opportunities around Mayrhofen to experience the Alpine winter world up close. For some, this is almost a spiritual experience. When the last signs of civilisation disappear behind the mountain flank you have just crossed and nothing stands between you and the mountains, feelings arise that make you forget all the exertion. However, you still have the highlight ahead of you. Once you have reached the summit or your destination, the descent awaits you. On light powder snow you float down to the valley, where dinner and the wellness area of the Neuhaus complete your day of ski touring.

Off the slopes, the Zillertal is gentle. Sporty. Close to nature. 

A winter hike through the mountains around Mayrhofen will quickly make you forget that you are so close to the ski area. Here you hardly hear anything but silence, because most other sounds are simply swallowed up by the snow. There is only the crunching under your feet and your breath as you send little clouds into the crystal-clear winter air. You'll be on your way a little faster when cross-country skiing. In the wintry world of Mayrhofen there are no less than four routes for sprinting and skating. It gets even faster when tobogganing from the Wiesenhof in Mayrhofen or one of the many other toboggan runs in the Zillertal. Our tip is to combine a winter hike with exuberant tobogganing run for unforgettable fun with the whole family. Another highlight in the Zillertal in winter that takes a little getting used to is snowshoe hiking. Don't worry, you'll get used to the tennis rackets under your feet.

Warmth and wellbeing 

Winter is the season when we long for warmth the most. There is hardly anything more pleasant than relaxing in the sauna with a stimulating herbal infusion while the snowflakes fall softly outside. At the Kamillendörfl in Neuhaus, your winter holiday in Mayrhofen in the Zillertal becomes a relaxing time-out. Several saunas, a steam bath and a relaxation room dominated by Swiss pine create balance after an eventful day on the slopes. Prescious beauty treatments, massages and baths such as the Tyrolean stone oil bath are as much a part of the Kamillendörfl as camomile is of the Alps. our wellness area is not called what it is for nothing. Chamomile is a true healing plant and you will encounter it in many ways here with us.

Zillertal best.

And we have plenty of it. Many of the Zillertal ski areas are located at favourable altitudes and provide excellent snow quality and snow reliability for guaranteed skiing pleasure.
