SnowCatRide on Mount Ahorn

Ready for an unforgettable adventure in snow?

Sit behind the wheel of the big snowcat and feel like a real employee of the Mayrhofner Bergbahnen. Experience how our "heroes of the night" seemingly effortlessly lead the big vehicle over the steep slopes, so that many winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy freshly prepared pistes. Pushing, rolling and milling is one of your tasks. A true winter highlight! Due to the limited number of seats, only one person per day can take a ride in one of our snowcats. Anyone 18 of age or older can participate. Minors must be accompanied by at least one parent or guardian and must sign a declaration of indemnity.

What to bring?

  • Your confirmation of reservation or your invoice as a confirmation of payment.

  • A declaration of indemnity for the operating manager/snowcat driver.

  • Your ID, driver’s license or passport for identification.

  • Winter or ski clothes: Warm ski trousers & winter jacket, gloves & beanie, lip balm and sun protection.

  • Winter shoes: Please note that sturdy shoes (water-resistant with a good grip) are especially important! We recommend mountaineering boots, moon boots or snowboard boots. Ski boots are not suitable due to risk of falling.

Important information: Ascent: With the Ahornbahn at 03.45 p.m. at the latest. SnowCatRide: You will meet with one of our snowcat drivers and/or the operations manager on duty at 04.00 p.m. at the exit of the Ahornbahn summit station.

After a short safety briefing and the handover of your signed declaration of indemnity, the ride starts around 04.15 p.m. During the 30-minute ride, you will have plenty of time to chat with the snowcat driver who will demonstrate the power of his vehicle.

Descent: Since the last regular ride down to the valley is at 05.00 p.m., the snowcat driver will take you safely back to the Ahornbahn summit station by 04.50 p.m. at the latest.

A SnowCatRide can only be canceled free of charge up to 7 days in advance, after which no cancellation can be made.
