On the mountain
Mayrhofen has always been popular with the British and it attracts cool boarders, stylish skiers, wobbly beginners and those looking to push themselves to the next level. From the town, there are two mountains to choose from; Penken and Ahorn. The former is larger and more popular whereas the latter is more suitable for kids as it has dedicated areas and lifts for the youngest skiers.
The Penken mountain has a new gondola to carry eager skiers and boarders to a height of 1,790m From here, the views are pretty impressive as you have the expansive area at your tips just waiting to be explored. And you can get about quickly too as the modern lift system is fast meaning more downhill time and less queue time.
The size of the area also means the slopes are actually quieter than you would expect as everyone disperses after the initial busy period. A real bonus around Easter time.
