The entire spectrum of winter activities
in one valley.
The Mayrhofen skiing area, with its versatile Ahorn and Penken ski mountains, is the best destination for your skiing holiday in the Zillertal valley and is your guarantee for wintery, snowy experiences on Tyrol’s most beautiful mountains. The unspoiled natural surroundings, outstanding infrastructure and rich diversity of the entire region ensure this amazing experience. Did you know that our skiing area in the
Zillertal valley is amongst the best skiing areas in the Alps? Try it for yourself and be amazed by your skiing holiday in the Zillertal valley. There are also many other exciting things to experience in the Zillertal away from the pistes in winter. Your big ElisabethHotel advantage: you are just a few minutes’ walk away from the Penken and Ahorn cable cars, as well as the stunning wintery world of adventure in the Zillertal valley.
Hike through the snow-covered mountain landscape at your own speed, follow secret tracks in the snow which will lead you to the most beautiful viewpoints and warm yourself up in between with freshly-brewed tea, mulled wine or a fortifying soup in one of our rustic Alpine pasture huts. Enjoy the silence and tranquillity of nature when taking a winter hike along one of the countless paths or on a longer snowshoe tour in the Zillertal Alps. After a tiring day on skis or in hiking boots, you will enjoy a relaxing evening in our Elisense-Spa even more. Give it a try!
Cross-country skiing brings movement to your life! Cross-country skiing is the healthiest winter sport around as it uses over 90% of all the muscles in the body at the same time – training your entire locomotor system simultaneously. When cross-country skiing in the Zillertal valley, you can also gather many wonderful winter experiences, all on over 40 kilometres of perfectly prepared cross-country skiing trails. You can start your cross-country skiing tour near the ElisabethHotel as part of your skiing holiday in the Zillertal valley.
Far away from the hustle and bustle of the pistes and close to the source, with ski touring in Mayrhofen in the Zillertal not only will you experience mesmerising views, but you will be able to do so all by yourself. In absolute silence, you can get closer to the summits, surrounded by untouched landscapes and pristine snowfields. The big reward awaits you at the end – a descent through untouched deep snow. It’s almost as if you are floating when you glide back down into the valley, bringing wonderful memories with you and maybe even with a next destination already in mind. Around Mayrhofen there are many tours available in varying degrees of difficulty. Tours such as Mayrhofen-Wiesenhof or the tour to the Rastkogel hut are particularly suitable for a nocturnal adventure under the stars.
Tobogganing is more than a genuine alternative to Alpine skiing – particularly when you combine it with a night-time hike through snow-covered forests, a stop in one of the many Alpine mountain huts and hearty meal before you hop onto your toboggan and slide down into the valley under the starry night’s sky. Our tip: head to Gerlosstein to try out the longest natural toboggan run in the Zillertal. The seven-kilometre-long toboggan run is also lit up at night.
A carriage ride through snow-covered Mayrhofen awakens nostalgia and a sense of longing and rewards the passengers with wonderful winter panoramas – just like a horse-drawn sleigh ride through powdery snow. Carriage and horse-drawn sleigh rides offer space for up to eleven or twelve people and are offered by two local businesses, Kiendlerhof and Zillertaler Viererlei. Of course, you also have the option of surprising your loved one and enjoying the ride through the snow-covered Zillertal valley just the two of you. We will be happy to provide you with more details about carriage and horse-drawn sleigh rides in Mayrhofen.
