Mayrhofner Bergbahnen

A mountain experience in the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region means tempo, action and adrenalin as well as relaxation and pleasure. The 57 modern lifts in the Mayrhofen skiing area bring action lovers onto the snappy slopes on the Action Mountain Penken, and recreational skiers, families or beginners can enjoy the sunny carving slopes on the Leisure Mountain Ahorn. Numerous highlights are waiting to be explored on the 136 kilometres of ski slopes on the Penken as well as on the Ahorn. Those who want lots of action can pay a visit to Penken. Here die-hard freestylers will find their perfect playground at Vans Penken Park, one of the best snow parks in Europe. On the “Harakiri”, Austria’s steepest slope adventure with a 78% gradient, there is only one direction – namely steep downhill! Mayrhofen shows its quiet and introspective side on the Leisure Mountain Ahorn. In particular, the Funslope Ahorn offers lots of skiing fun for children and beginners, and anyone who needs fortification after countless downhill runs can indulge in a stop-off for refreshments on the sun terrace at Café-Bistro Freiraum or let the day come to an end in one of the comfortable deckchairs in the White Lounge igloo village. The igloo suites open their doors for an overnight stay at Ahorn for all those who still do not have enough. NEW: Since last winter the ski slopes of Leisure Mountain Ahorn can be explored by taking a Snow Limo Tour.

Ski area highlights

Snow Limo Tours

Why not get to know the skiing area from a totally different perspective offering added excitement and entertainment? The Ahorn is the perfect place for it. Snow Limo Tours were introduced last winter - and they are unique in Europe. The unusual vehicle – a sled on two skis – originally comes from Canada. Passengers are chauffeured over the pistes of the Ahorn Plateau by trained staff in comfort and safety, but still in sporty and individual style. It’s perfect for non-skiers - or indeed anyone who wants to take a break from skiing.
