Winter Holidays in the Zillertal ...

Ski Slopes – Relaxing or Thrilling

Just five minutes (by car or ski bus) from Haus Waldruh, you’ll find one of the liveliest and most varied ski areas in the Zillertal: Mayrhofen’s Penken-Ahorn.


From Mayrhofen, there are two ways to paradise:

The Ahorn-Pendelbahn takes you up to the Ahorn in just 6.5 minutes. From there, you can enjoy fabulous views of the Zillergrund and Brandberg and carve out leisurely turns to your heart’s content on the wide, sunny slopes.

The runs are ideal for carving and cruising. The Ahorn is also the perfect choice for beginners and families who appreciate its clear layout and gentle slopes.


The Penkenbahn lift is just 200 m from the Ahorn base station. This takes you up into a realm of new possibilities on the Penken, which is famous for its action.


The Penken offers plenty of challenges for everyone. Beginners and experts alike will find a huge variety of slopes. The Harakiri run is a true test of character, plunging downhill at a 78% gradient.


You can also enjoy fabulous off-piste options with fun powder runs – but only if you take the right equipment or go with a mountain guide!


The Penken has become the place to be, especially for young, dedicated snowboarders and freestylers, and the Penken Park lives up to its reputation.

Skifahren in der Ferienregion Mayrhofen

Winter Wonderland – Snow Glistening in the Sunshine

With the crisp winter air in your lungs, any outdoor activity is revitalising and truly relaxing. The sparkle of freshly fallen snow, perfectly groomed ski slopes, cross-country skiing trails, and hiking paths will conjure up a smile on the faces of all winter sports enthusiasts.

The Zillertal boasts 662 kilometres of slopes, which are all accessible with one ski pass. Our local ski area – Penken-Ahorn – offers seemingly unlimited fun on 136 km of slopes. The ski bus will take you to the cable car stations, which are located centrally in Mayrhofen, within only 10 minutes.


With its wonderful, wide slopes, the Ahorn ski area in the west (named after the 1,965 m-high Ahornspitze mountain) is perfect for leisurely skiers and families who want to carve and cruise their way down the slopes or learn to ski. The action mountain Penken offers challenges for action-lovers – with powder runs, the Penken Snow Park for freestyle acrobatics and the Harakiri run, which has a gradient of 78%.

Pure Nature – Summertime in Brandberg

Winding paths lead deep into alpine valleys. In some, the mountains all but block out the sky, while others like the Zillertal are broad with side valleys stretching out towards the sun.


The Zillergrund – home to the source of the River Ziller – reaches as far as the Italian border. Experience a pristine natural world in a hiking area with an unspoilt atmosphere. As part of the Zillertal Alps Nature Park, the landscape and its flora and fauna are protected from car exhaust emissions and pollution.


You can only explore the area by bus, on foot or by bicycle. The main access road into the Zillergrund valley is a toll road, which is also open to cars. This unobtrusive and respectful relationship with nature has great benefits for outdoor enthusiasts.
