First enjoy the fabulous descents, then celebrate with an epic après ski - this is what Mayrhofen is all about! A really popular place in the ski area is the "Pilzbar" at the mountain station of the new 3S-Penkenbahn. After the lift closes, you just continue celebrating in the valley. Names like "Icebar", "Brück'n Stadl", "Yeti Bar" or "Hiata-Madl" are music to the ears for every après ski fan. For night owls, the party continues after dinner. Mayrhofen has a lively nightlife, and those who want to party can do so in clubs like "Scotland Yard" or "New Speakeasy Arena" into the early hours of the morning. In the “Sports Arena Disco” party animals will have a blast in this three-story club!
Those who prefer a cosy evening can enjoy their time meeting people in one of the cafés or bars, or enjoy the regional specialities in one of the many restaurants. A special highlight is the "White Lounge", directly at the Ahorn gondola: During the day you can chill indoors or outdoors on loungers, in the evening, the locale is a chic party venue in the ice. And those who have always dreamed of sleeping in an igloo will have the chance to make their dream come true!
As an exciting alternative, you can go on a coach ride through the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region or go ice skating on the ice rink. Those looking for adventure are recommended to visit the various ice waterfalls for ice climbing or paragliding in winter, where you can enjoy a fascinating view and mountain air during a safe tandem flight.
Every resort in Zillertal has its own cross-country runs. Altogether there is now a network of approx. 125 km. Around Mayrhofen and Hippach you can find 35 km of well-tracked tours, some of which are in skating style. The longest run (10 km) leads from Mayrhofen to Hollenzen.

For further variations on your trips you can use the tracks in Gerlos. Here you will also find the 7 km high-altitude cross-country run which is very snow-sure. There are also 4 new tracks in Burgstall. You can decide if you'd rather try the racing trail, the pro's run or just enjoy easy skating in a wonderful winter landscape. 3 of those trails are also lit until 22:00 p.m. and you can therefore remain sporty into the late evening hours.
