Winter in Zillertal

Skiing & snowboarding are the classic favourites during winter holidays in Mayrhofen, with hundreds of kilometres of perfectly groomed slopes to explore in the largest and most award-winning ski area in Tyrol. But that's not all... Discover the Zillertal Valley with the whole family while winter hiking along cleared hiking trails, cross-country skiing in bright sunshine, or while indulging in fun sports like freeriding, tobogganing, skidoo and snowshoeing.

The pristine mountain air of the winter landscapes around Mayrhofen and Hippach can also be enjoyed at loftier heights. Not just when enjoying unique views from the terraces of the mountain huts and restaurants in the ski areas, but also while sampling the inimitable delights of paragliding.  Just try it all with us - new sports, wellness, piste power and party atmosphere, culinary delights and the fantastic feeling of being on holiday!

Ski & Board

Mayrhofner Bergbahnen Cable Car Co. ensure 100% guaranteed snow in the local ski areas throughout winter. Perfectly groomed slopes, that put a big smile on your face with every turn. The extensive Penken ski slopes are inter-linked with the Finkenberg and Tux ski areas, creating one of the largest and most diverse ski areas in Austria. Leisure Mount Ahorn, on the other hand, entices beginners and families with its gentle and easy runs.

And if that's still not enough variety, ski buses take you comfortably to the surrounding areas of Zillertal Arena, Hochzillertal and Hochfügen, or to the Hintertux Glacier (Austria's only year-round skiing area).

Cross-Country Skiing & Tobogganing

Winter in the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region has many facets and offers perfectly groomed cross-country trails in addition to snow-sure slopes. An absolute dream for cross-country skiers of all ages.

Family toboggan races prove who is the real boss of the house.  Some of the natural toboggan runs in Zillertal even offer a 100% snow guarantee (Hainzenberg!). Just hire a toboggan on site and off you go.

There are so many highlights in our region. We would, however, like to highlight one in particular. Winter Magic in Ginzling! Snowtubing, drag lift, toboggan run, cross-country ski trail,... It’s well worth visiting, especially with children!!!

Away from the mountains

Zillertal enjoys international repute for its sporty and action-packed winter holidays. Those more intimately acquainted with the valley, however, know that there are plenty of hidden idylls and quiet corners for relaxing holidays.

Whether it's snowshoe hiking through vast winter landscapes, a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the village, a visit to Mayrhofen Advent or a shopping spree on the trendy High Street:  Mayrhofen provides plenty of opportunity to create memorable moments on holiday, well away from the ski slopes. Have we mentioned the ice rink? Great fun for the whole family. Or the perfectly groomed cross-country ski trails? An absolute dream for cross-country skiers of all ages.
