The Stoanerhof offers guests a traditional Austrian

high proportion of guest bedrooms with en suite facilities and balconies and also

be used as individual twin rooms. All rooms are furnished to a very
high standard, still retaining their Austrian charm and include a TV

on the slopes, guests can enjoy a drink in the bar and gather with
friends in the very traditional Tyrolean snug seating area or choose to relax in the sauna. Wi-fi is available in the communal areas.

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 26-Feb-2017)
Thursday 23rd was a largely sunny day across our featured Austrian resorts. Temperatures ranged from around freezing level at higher glacial resorts such as Hintertux (70/180cm), right up to about +10C for resorts in the Ski Welt (50/60cm) such as Ellmau, Hopfgarten, Scheffau and Soll.
Towards the Obergurl region the slopes remain in a good state. Upper runs at Pitzal (159/196cm) and Kaunertal (36/270cm) are packed and well groomed which was creating some lovely on piste conditions for carving turns.
In contrast many other resorts are experiencing some searly spring conditions due to the pistes softening in the strong sun. Notable examples of this can be seen at Kirchberg (69/81cm) and Kitzbuhel (69/71cm), so be sure to head out early for some of the best skiing.
Only a couple of resorts at present could really do with some fresh snow to improve the state of affairs. In the east at Bad Kleinkirchheim (25/45cm) the slopes are largely artificial and are now appearing as strips of snow on an otherwise bare mountain. Whilst in the west, the lower runs at Brand (10/100cm) are also made largely from snow cannons. For the best skiing at both of these resorts, stick to the runs at a higher elevation.
Friday 24th is likely to bring the next snowfall to Austria, with accumulations predicted to be around 10-20cm in most resorts. Saturday 25th is then predicted to be a day of clear skies with some clouds then rolling in on Sunday.
European Weather Outlook
It has been a tough week all over the Alps recently with heavy rain, warm temperatures and strong sunshine all negatively impacting snow quality. However, a change is coming and the early signs of its arrival are visible already. Cloud cover will gently increase throughout today as much needed fresh snow and cold temperatures move in tonight. Tomorrow will see cloudy snowy conditions all over the Alps with light to moderate snowfalls expected. The freezing level will quickly drop which means it will snow all the way down to the valley floor.
Beyond this sudden change Saturday will bring slightly warmer temperatures by the afternoon with Sunday being a mostly sunny day. A large snow storm is currently is forecast to bring very heavy snowfalls to the Alps next week. It would seem winter is returning from its brief summer vacation, and not a moment too soon.
In the Pyrenees a mostly sunny weekend is ahead, no significant snowfall is expected before Tuesday 28th.
In far north Scandinavia a slight change to the normal pattern of dull overcast weather. Moderate snowfalls are expected over the next few days. Powder days are unlikely but certainly enough to create excellent on piste conditions.
