A warm welcome awaits at the Kristall, where the staff are known for their friendly service. And if you’re a fan of peace and quiet, but still want to be close to everything, this is the place for you – it’s in a quiet spot on the edge of the resort but is just 5 minutes’ walk from the centre and 10 minutes from the Penken gondola. Or you can catch the ski bus instead if you like.
The rooms have a modern look and they all have a private balcony where you can sit back and soak up the sun and mountain air. Or to kick the relaxation up a gear, mosey on down to the wellness area to try the sauna, steam room and infrared cabin.
Time to eat? Fill your plate with sliced meat, cheese and bread from the buffet spread each morning and, in the evening, Mayrhofen’s restaurants are right there waiting. Or upgrade to half board and get your evening meals included at the nearby Hotel Neuhaus. There’s a m ix of Austrian favourites and international classics on the menu, as well as well as weekly themed buffets to tickle your tastebuds.

Mayrhofen skiing and boarding
Mayrhofen is the largest of the resorts covered by the 'Zillertal Superski' pass, with 101km of runs locally, and 227km when you include the Hintertux Glacier. There are two distinct ski areas connected to the town itself. The Ahorn mountain is the smaller of the two and caters very well to beginners and early intermediates, the perfect place to learn and improve in your own space. The resort has invested tens of millions in the infrastructure recently, including the replacement of the Pekenbahn. This has meant access to the extensive Penken slopes is quicker and much more comfortable. No more long queues firts thing in the morning! Skiing on the Penken has something for everyone, including Harakiri, Austria's steepest piste!
Further afield, you can travel along the valley to Hintertux and experience the glacier skiing, incuded on the area lift pass. With a year round snow guarantee, this tops off Mayrhofen as one of Austria's top 5 ski destinations.
Mayrhofen ski resort
As a fully fledged town, rather than a seasonal resort, Mayrhofen is large, vibrant and has the kind of extensive facilities that some smaller Austrian destinations can't match. A huge public leisure centre and excellent sports facilities, as well as a cahrming pedestrianised town centre with extensive shopping, eating and drinking options. All combined with excellent transport links and a Tirolean atmosphere that's hard to beat in winter! You're only an hour from Innsbruck which not only makes for a hassle free transfer, but also opens up day trip possibilities - direct trains depart from the station every hour at peak times.
It's easy to see why Mayrhofen is so highly rated, and attracts so many visitors year after year. A must-do for any serious skier.
