Ski & Board
at Leisure Mount Ahorn & Action Mount Penken
Action Mount Penken
The extensive ski area on Mount Penken with the ski resorts of Finkenberg, Rastkogel and Eggalm is one of the largest and most diverse ski areas in Austria. The Harakiri Piste with its 78% gradient - Austria's steepest ski slope - is a special challenge for those that dare. Boarders and free skiers meet at Vans Penken Park, where 6 areas offer a wide choice of terrain for every level of ability, pros and rookies alike.
Leisure Mount Ahorn
Perfect for beginners, novices and families. The challenging 5.5 kilometre long groomed downhill valley run to Mayrhofen promises unadulterated alpine pleasure to sporty skiers and boarders. The White Lounge is yet another highlight: a combination of igloo bar, igloo hotel and chill-out area. Days can be spent relaxing in lounge chairs to great music whilst drinking in stunning views of the Zillertal Mountains. At night, the White Lounge is transformed into one of Zillertal's most exclusive overnight accommodations.
Ski Area Highlights
Whether you're a beginner or a pro, you will find just the right obstacles in our snow park on Action Mountain Penken. The park’s very own 4-person SunJet chairlift ensures that snowboarders and freeskiers can get in as many runs as possible in the six different areas.
Particularly beginners and younger freestyle acrobats get their money's worth here because the Kids Park - also equipped with its own lift - offers perfect conditions to hone all of their tricks. Highlights include the huge Rainbow Box, the imposing Wallride at the foot of the park, and the massive "Beastbox" multi-jib.

... Austria's steepest piste
Harakiri touches 78 degrees at its most terrifying point. It is a relatively short run, dropping straight down the northern face of Action Mount Penken, but in icy conditions, it's a challenge for most skiers! As a souvenir for those who conquer the challenge, the "I survived Harakiri" shirt is for sale at all Mayrhofner Bergbahnen ticket counters. If you don't feel like testing your limits, you can watch the action from the chairlift that runs right next to the slope.

Tip: Every Friday from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. a professional photographer will be on hand to shoot pictures of everyone going down the Harakiri Run. Photos can be downloaded for free here.
... the igloo hotel with bar
Have you ever spent a night in an igloo at 2,000 meters above sea level? The White Lounge, the original Igloo Hotel on Leisure Mountain Ahorn, allows you to do just that! The artfully designed suites are made entirely of snow and offer room for up to 28 guests. Whether you want to have some fun with friends or spend a romantic night with your partner, a night in an igloo is definitely an unforgettable experience.
During the day, the White Lounge is a great place to chill out and unwind after hitting the slopes: You can sit back in one of the cozy deck chairs on the sun terrace while enjoying cool drinks and the amazing views of the 3,000-meter peaks of Zillertal - what a way to end your ski day!
