Zillertal Arena information
Lonely Planet review
Mayrhofen is the showpiece of the Zillertal Arena, which covers 166km of slopes and 49 lifts (some pretty high-tech) in the highly scenic Zillertal. As well as being intermediate heaven, Mayrhofen has Austria’s steepest black run, the kamikaze-like Harakiri with a 78% gradient, and appeals to freestylers for its fantastic terrain park. Even if snow lies thin in the valley, it’s guaranteed at the nearby Hintertux Glacier .
