The spectacular Penken Park is known as an international hotspot for the freestyler scene and in the White Lounge igloo bar you can enjoy cool drinks in front of a unique panorama.

The ski tour recommendations offered by the lift company are perfect ways to explore the mountains around Mayrhofen: experienced skiers choose the Höhenmeter-Fresser circuit, during which you pass a total of 13,000 metres in altitude. Or you try the Fun + Action circuit that doesn't only take you to Harakiri, but also to the popular Penken Park and the race tracks in the area. Wallowers and families will appreciate the Beginner's ircuit Penken and the Family Circuit Ahorn.

A special highlight is the Hintertuxer glacier: It is known to be one of the best glaciers with some of the most challenging pistes in the Alps, due to its size.

Night skiing Mayrhofen

Around Mayrhofn spreads Zillertal which is not only popular for its fantastic après ski or spectacular pistes. The bustling valley in Austria also offers its guests - and how could it be any different - night skiing opportunities, and the night ski areas in and around Mayrhofen do not only guarantee fun on the piste during night skiing. Zillertal Arena, Hochzillertal, Tux or Hochfügen - all those who prefer spending their evening without any skis after all can look forward to fire shows, ski ballet and ski acrobatics and stay on the pistes after dark nonetheless. - Be enticed by fire, torches and pistes that are illuminated by light shows!

Après ski Mayrhofen

First enjoy the fabulous descents, then celebrate with an epic après ski - this is what Mayrhofen is all about! A really popular place in the ski area is the "Pilzbar" at the mountain station of the new 3S-Penkenbahn. After the lift closes, you just continue celebrating in the valley. Names like "Icebar", "Brück'n Stadl", "Yeti Bar" or "Hiata-Madl" are music to the ears for every après ski fan. For night owls, the party continues after dinner. Mayrhofen has a lively nightlife, and those who want to party can do so in clubs like "Scotland Yard" or "New Speakeasy Arena" into the early hours of the morning. In the “Sports Arena Disco” party animals will have a blast in this three-story club!

Those who prefer a cosy evening can enjoy their time meeting people in one of the cafés or bars, or enjoy the regional specialities in one of the many restaurants. A special highlight is the "White Lounge", directly at the Ahorn gondola: During the day you can chill indoors or outdoors on loungers, in the evening, the locale is a chic party venue in the ice. And those who have always dreamed of sleeping in an igloo will have the chance to make their dream come true!

As an exciting alternative, you can go on a coach ride through the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region or go ice skating on the ice rink. Those looking for adventure are recommended to visit the various ice waterfalls for ice climbing or paragliding in winter, where you can enjoy a fascinating view and mountain air during a safe tandem flight.

Snowpark: Penken Park Mayrhofen

In Mayrhofen, fun sport and creativity lovers will discover a very special highlight: the "Penken Park", which was voted best snowpark in Europe in 2010! The park is divided into eight different areas. Here you can use the Fun Area, the Medium Area, the Advanced Area, or the Pro Area in order to improve and show off your skills.

This is even a great place to practise for the youngest freestyle beginners. In the KIDS park there are kickers and butter boxes just waiting to be discovered. For all bigger freestylers, there are boxes, kickers, rails, tubes, jibs, butter boxes and 2 specials - an end section and a multi-jib "Beastbox" in the Pro Area.

The entrance to the park is located at an altitude of 1,800 m between the Rastkogel and Horberg at 2,000 m. Furthermore, the park comprises its own 4-person chair lift, the "Sunjet", which operates directly above the Pro Line, so that you can observe the pros from above. Special events and contest take place here in regular intervals. Our tip: Visit the park on Tuesdays, which is when a professional photo shoot takes place between 13:00 and 15:00. Afterwards all pictures can be downloaded for free!

Should you want even more freestyle fun, the "Betterpark" at the Hintertux Glacier is definitely worth a visit. Both beginners and pros will get their money's worth. The Easy Line, Medium Line, Pro Line, Rail Line, and Box Line demand creativity and originality. Furthermore, there is a 100 m long super-pipe which completes the offer. On an altitude of 3,200 and located in a spacious area, the "Betterpark" invites everyone who would like to indulge in their passion in front of an impressive Alpine landscape.
