Mayrhofen Resort Info
Mayrhofen skiing and boarding
Mayrhofen is the largest of the resorts covered by the 'Zillertal Superski' pass, with 101km of runs. The skiing in Mayrhofen itself is on two separate mountains but in 2006-7 a new cable car up to the Ahorn area was opened - making access much quicker and easier. Confident intermediates are best catered for, while better skiers can test their mettle on Penken’s challenging ‘black pistes’ - including the infamous Harakiri slope – while beginners, pleasure-seekers and carving enthusiasts can have the broad, sunny pistes of Ahorn all to themselves. Snowboarders will not find Mayrhofen the best place to learn, but the initiated can revel in the world class Vans Penken Park.
Mayrhofen ski resort
Mayrhofen itself is a town in its own right and therefore perhaps not as quintessentially "alpine" as a lot of Austrian resorts. However, the plethora of accommodation options, restaurants, off-snow activities, bars and nightclubs more than makes up for this. The Mayrhofen clientele is a mixture of young crowds looking for good nightlife and families looking to exploit the excellent child care facilities. Both of these are available and Mayrhofen manages to allow both sorts of holidays with neither group upsetting the other.

Snow Overview - Austria (snow news updated 16-Apr-2014)
Fine, sunny weather provided great visibility for the majority of Austrian resorts on Monday 14th April, with spring snow softening quickly during the morning.
Head high for the best snow conditions, with the likes of Hintertux (30/400cm), Solden (0/301cm), Kaunertal (293/333cm) and Pitztal (236/315cm) offering some of the best skiing in Austria at the moment on their upper slopes. Hintertux reported a dusting of fresh snow over the weekend, along with Obergurgl (30/108cm) and St Anton (15/120cm).
The forecast is for clouds to build at the end of Monday bringing a chance of fresh snow over the next few days before the weather brightens up for the start of the Easter weekend. Clouds could then move back in from Easter Sunday.
European Weather Outlook
The weather this week across the majority of European resorts is for mostly sunny weather before clouds build on Easter Sunday. Any snow that does fall next week will be on the higher slopes as the freezing level will be around 2,500m.
Austria is the exception though as cloudy skies are expected to dominate this week. The good news is that the freezing level could dip down to below 1,500m this week so fresh snow could fall. Next week will see it climb back above 2,500m and the precipitation will be mostly wet.
