Mayrhofen weather and snow conditions

Mayrhofen weather and snow conditions


In spite of the highest lifts here only reaching 2,500m, snow conditions here are excellent by Tyrolean standards as the slopes themselves are mostly set above

1,500m. Extra insurance is provided by snow cannons covering the whole of Ahorn, all the main Penken slopes and many of the adjacent Rastkogel and Eggalm pistes. The Hintertux Glacier is believed by many to be the best on the planet.

The unique Tyrolean ‘reverse climate’ phenomenon applies here, with winter weather in the low-lying Ziller valleys grey, cloudy and colder, contrasting with the glorious warm sunshine on the slopes. Temperatures in December average around 3˚C in daytime, dropping at night by around 8˚C, making it great for afternoon skiing and evening après-ski activities. Spring here is fantastic, with daytime temperatures around 6˚C, at least a metre of natural snow remaining on the higher slopes and the warming rays of the sun bringing even the valley to life as the spring flowers emerge.
