Skiing holiday in Mayrhofen

Unlimited ski fun is as close as it can get: the free ski bus that will take you to the Zillertal 3000 skiing area is right next to our house. Free skibuses and trains will take you from the train station (5 minutes on foot) to all other skiing areas within the valley, their use being included in the Zillertaler Superskipass.  

Together with the Hintertux glacier, almost 500 kilometers of skiruns, consisting of very well-prepared downhill runs and slopes for all levels,  are at your disposal: well into April,  thanks to state-of-the-art snow cannons.
