“The greater "Zillertal 3000" ski region is extended from Mayrhofen by the Penkenbahn and from Schwendau by the Horbergbahn. The other ski area of Mayrofen, the Ahorn ski region, is well suited for families. It can also offers ideal practice slopes for beginners and children. The 5,5 kilometres -long valley descent (with snow machines) will appeal to very good skiers.“
Rotaski made the mistake of travelling to Mayrhofen in the first week of the year when there were two Austrian bank holidays so the queues were horrendous. The old Penkenbahn 2 stage cable car had been replaced with an express bubble but there were still queues. On the last day, we got on the train and went to Kaltenbach down the valley, only to be met with a bigger queue.On the plus side the Rastkogel area has now been linked in with a 150 person cable car to the main area and a link has now been made to Zell am See.
