Winter Fun at its Best
Skiing in Zillertal
Ski slopes as varied and individual as you - for all levels of ability
A winter holiday in Mayrhofen, a skiing holiday at the Hotel Edenlehen – there are plenty of good reasons: the attractive area for winter sports in Zillertal with 487km of ski slopes and state-of-the-art ski lifts, the legendary après ski and an unparalleled calendar of events.
Hotel Edenlehen is situated in the middle of Austria's largest and most reliable skiing area: 147 snow-making machines guarantee 100% coverage on all of the slopes served by cable cars and lifts operated by 'Mayrhofner Bergabhen' - ensuring the best conditions.
Skiing in Mayrhofen
Experience a wide range of piste - the Penken skiing area offers easy, intermediate and difficult slopes. The steepest slope is without doubt the black "Harakiri" - with a gradient of up to 78% it is the steepest groomed ski run in Austria!
The AHORN is a real insider tip for beginners, newcomers and families, who will find ideal conditions on the gentle slopes around the 2,000m Ahorn plateau. The long descent to Mayrhofen will also challenge more advanced skiers.
The top five skiing circuits in the Mayrhofen skiing area are shown in a special "BEST OF" leaflet available free of charge at the valley stations of the cable cars.
