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.

Ski Area Highlights

Penken Park

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.

Harakiri Piste

... 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.
