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.
