Frequently Asked Questions about skiing in Mayrhofen


Questions to the Group Courses
What are your maximum numbers in group lessons?  
We limit our groups to a maximum of 6 people per level!Therefore, every participant receives the necessary attention. 

Can I extend my participation in a group course on site?  
Yes, we are happy if you are enjoying the course and want to continue skiing with the group. We recommend that you start by booking a 3-day ski course so that you can lay your foundations and experience progress.  

Do the ski courses have to be taken on consecutive days?  
Yes, because the format of the ski course follows a structure that progresses daily. Out of consideration for other participants in the group, we want to avoid unnecessary repetitions due to “dropouts”.  

What is the minimum number of participants per ski level?  
The minimum number of participants per level is 3 people.With 3 people in the group, the course lasts 4 hours on Sunday + Monday and 2 hours on Tuesday.
Which Skipass will i need?

You can get a “local” Lift Pass up to 1,5 days. This is valid for the Ahorn, Penken, Finkenberg, Rastkogel and Eggalm Area.
A Lift Pass valid for more than 2 days, will automatically be a “Zillertal SuperSkipass”.

This Pass is valid for all the Lifts in the Zillertal. This is 515 Kilometers of Slopes on 179 Lifts. (including the Hintertux Glacier)
Also note, that there are special deals for pedestrians. So if you want to have a coffee or read a book at 2000m, while not skiing, you should choose that one.
The Prices for the Lift Passes can be found here : Mayrhofner Bergbahnen.

What are the benefits in Private Lessons?

It is simply the amount of attention we can provide for you. The exercises will be focusing on your individual needs and your overall progress will be faster and safer.

Where can i check the Ski Area Mayrhofen webcams?

Here you find the Webcams to checkout the weather conditions.

How much snow is in the Ski Area Mayrhofen right now?

Snow Report Zillertal

The snow and pistes report Zillertal informs you about the current snow depths in the Zillertal ski resort and all lifts and pistes opened.

Is is worth getting a Ski Depot?

Yes. To really enjoy your winter holiday, a ski depot on the mountain is very convenient! Otherwise you will have to lug your ski equipment from your accommodation to the slopes.
Even if the ski bus connection in town is very good, the bus ride and the ascent with the gondola are simply more comfortable without having to carry all of your equipment.
Your heated storage locker awaits you on the mountain, your ski boots are dry and you also have a locker to leave small items at the Top station.

A tip: It pays to be quick, as there are only a limited number of depots available at the mountain station.

Is the Ski Pass included in the lessons?

No. Ski passes are sold separately through the Lift Company. All children over 6 years need a lift pass. You will find more information directly at the Mayrhofner Bergbahnen

What about “bad” Weather conditions?

We run our courses in all Weather Conditions. Cancelling or postphoning lessons might only be necessary if the Lifts are not operating.
This could be the case due to strong winds in the Area.

At what age could Children try-out skiing?

Well, that is a tricky one. It really comes down to the Child. We would think from 3 to 4 years on, the first steps can be made.
The first taster should not be too long for the Child. A 2 hour Private lesson could give you a good idea about how it would work.
