Ski & winter pleasures on your holiday in Mayrhofen

Powder snow & winter romance

Near your Sissi Suites, you will find the two winter mountains Ahorn and Penken, whose ski resorts offer a wide variety of winter sports. Beginners and professionals can enjoy the wide, perfectly groomed pistes, while adventurous skiers can look forward to a very special challenge: the legendary Harakiri slope with 78 percent gradient is one of the steepest slopes in Austria

– and a very special challenge for skiers and snowboarders alike. You can discover winter romance and snow magic at its best on winter or snowshoe hikes, cross-country skiing on 40 excellent kilometres of cross-country trails, or night tobogganing on the Gerlosstein with the longest natural toboggan run in Zillertal.

530 kilometres of slopes. 180 ultra-modern mountain railways and lifts and uncompromising skiing pleasure at up to 3,250 metres above sea level: this is skiing in the four Zillertal ski regions. And you: in the thick of things.

Ski Mayrhofen
Your luxurious apartment is located very close to the two mountain railways, which transport you comfortably and in a matter of minutes to the action mountain Penken and the pleasure mountain Ahorn. 139 kilometres of perfectly groomed pistes and fine snow are waiting there to be conquered by you – each and every day.

Hintertuxer Glacier
Sixty kilometres of perfectly groomed pistes and the breathtaking glacial scenery make skiing on the Hintertuxer glacier a truly special highlight. By the way: you can ski all year round on the Hintertuxer glacier! Less than 30 minutes by car from your apartment in Mayrhofen.

Vans Penken Park
Action mountain Penken is home to a particularly adrenaline-charged sensation: the Penken Park with eight areas, its own four-seater chairlift, international shape crew and much more besides.

Harakiri Piste
We present: the blackest slope in Zillertal - and perhaps the steepest slope in Austria. With a 78% gradient, the Harakiri downhill run is only for hard-nosed skiers and snowboarders – and also a real challenge for them.

Horse-drawn carriage rides
What better way to enjoy a magnificent holiday in the Sissi Suites than on a ride in a horse-drawn carriage or sleigh? Past wonderful winter romance, snow-covered forests and pre-Christmas villages.

Less than 20 minutes by car from the Sissi Suites, you will find the Gerlossteinbahn – the longest natural toboggan run in Zillertal with a length of seven kilometres. Our tip: combine a nocturnal hike with jaunty tobogganing fun on one of the illuminated toboggan runs in the area around Mayrhofen.

Ski mountaineering
First the ascent, glorious panoramic moments and real challenges – then the descent over virgin powder snow slopes: when you go ski touring, you’ll get very close to the mountain. And experience winter from its most exciting side. Around Mayrhofen, numerous tours are waiting to be mastered by you.

Four disciplines. One event. Followed by a grand after-show party: in the spectacular RISE & FALL relay competition, daring athletes compete in mountaineering, skiing, mountain biking and paragliding.
