As we did not have skis with us, the first turn was to Ski Rental. People in the ski rental were very friendly and helpful. They suggested us not to use the Penkenbahn lift in the middle of the village, because the enormous queue. Instead of that they suggested to start from Horberg.
Weather in the village (800m above the sea level) was wet and a temperature was above 0. After parking the car at the bottom of the Horberg, we changed to ski-boots at totally green grass. The ski lift took us to the 1650m high. Honestly, the first trip up felt a bit scary, but it was very safe of course.
Compared to Åre ski resort in Sweden, slopes seemed to be wider. We started with blue slopes, but later felt ourselves also good at red ones.
After the day on the slopes we spent the evening in the sauna of Apparthotel Veronika. There were 3 different types of saunas - Finnish sauna, steam room and infrared sauna. Also, the pool was quite large and it was also relaxing just to sit in the bubble bath.
It was perfect day! Before falling into sleep we made plans for next day. With the Mayrhofen Ski pass you have an opportunity to ski on 157km of slopes of every level of difficulty, 49 lifts and guaranteed snow up to 2,500m.
The Mayrhofen Skiing Area with its Ahorn, Penken, Rastkogel and Eggalm ski fields is a holiday destination of the superlative. Demanding, varied, diverse and entertaining - with this, Mayrhofen offers perfect winter enjoyment for like-minded people.
