Mayrhofen, affectionately referred to as The Hoff, is the perfect balance: modern and lively all year round, with plenty of facilities, while retaining its traditional feel and relaxed small town atmosphere. It’s perfect for young skiers looking to party on a budget, with a good portion of Mayrhofen hotels and guesthouses catering for those skiing on a budget.

Mayrhofen restaurants offer a good range of dining and there are several quality supermarkets in town if you’re self-catering. The Mayrhofen après-ski scene is legendary, and its numerous bars reverberate with Euro-pop beats as skiers come off the mountain to drink schnapps and dance.

The 2015/16 upgrade of the Penkenbahm gondola has doubled its capacity and makes getting up the mountain a much smoother process. It’s a great ride to the top too with some amazing views. Free buses and the valley train provide easy access to other lifts to the same terrain, or to other resorts on the same vast Ziller Valley liftpass, including the Tux glacier which is open year round. Mayrhofen is a great all-rounder, from the super-steep Harakiri black run, to a wide variety of good intermediate runs, an excellent terrain park, pockets of off-piste, and the quiet, sunny Ahorn mountain all alone on the far side of the valley.
