Skiing & Snowboarding in Tyrol

Skiing fun in the ski areas of: Ahorn, Penken and Horberg

If you are one of the lucky ones that has decided to take a ski holiday in Mayrhofen-Hippach in Tyrol, you can look forward to an incredible 142 perfectly groomed kilometres of slopes and 58 state of the art lift and cable car systems.

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 Penken Park, where 6 areas offer a wide choice of terrain for every level of ability, pros and rookies alike.

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!

If you don't feel like testing your limits, you can watch the action from the chairlift that runs right next to the slope.
