The Worlds Best Snowboarding - Mayrhofen


Mayrhofen is situated near the Hintertux glacier, which is above the snowline, making snowboarding possible all year round. The resort claims to have Austria's steepest piste, called the Harakiri, but it also has a large range of runs that permit snowboarding at different levels of difficulty. Mayrhofen also boasts the largest cable car in Austria with a capacity of 160 passengers, as well as a great park and a snowboard hotel.

For several years the Vans Penken Park in Mayrhofen has been voted one of the best parks in Europe by Snow-parks.com. "The Park has been an important factor in the Austrian freestyle scene for the last six years. Many Austrian and international pros call the Vans Penken Park their home and can be regularly seen shredding there. Due to the park's southward facing slope it gets plenty of sunshine and softer landings in the late season. The lift runs over the park, giving a perfect view of the action." (Mayrhofen.at)
