Join us for a week’s skiing at the wonderful resort of Mayrhofen – renowned for its excellent skiing and friendly après-ski. One of the most picturesque resorts in Austria, here you’ll find excellent shops, restaurants and a range of bars and clubs to liven up the evenings!
Suitable for all skiers
Set in the stunning Zillertal Valley, the charming resort of Mayrhofen has long been a favourite among British skiers and boarders. Not only does it have a vast, well connected ski area, which includes the snowsure Hintertux glacier (approx 30 mins away) but it’s also known as one of the liveliest après-ski resorts in Europe.
For beginners, the lessons take place around the mid station at Finkenberg, where the excellent ski school is based and there are plenty of gentle runs to find your ski legs on.
Intermediates will enjoy the slopes on the Penken, Mayrhofen’s intermediate mountain, where there are red runs galore, as well as the wide blue runs at Kaltenbach and some scenic tree-lined reds.
For advanced skiers, there are challenging runs down the Penken Mountain to Schwendau and through the trees from the Ahorn. The Horberg ski area also offers a number of exciting long runs such as the challenging Schafskopf mogul run, and if you feel like a real challenge, try what the resort markets as “the steepest groomed run in Austria” – called, not surprisingly, Hara Kiri. It is indeed steep, but is short enough that an accomplished intermediate could also tackle it.
The traditional Hotel Neuhaus lies in the heart of Mayrhofen, and the Moigg family have been welcoming skiers for years and have built up an excellent reputation for food, service and facilities. Located just minutes from the Penken lift and opposite the train station and ski bus stop, makes this “chocolate box” hotel ideal to explore the Zillertal ski area
This well appointed hotel features a cosy bar, lounge and restaurant,Tyrolean wood-panelled stube, games room, bowling alley, Chamomile Village extensive leisure area with indoor pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. (beauty treatments, massages at extra cost) Wi-Fi
All the comfortable,well furnished rooms feature en-suite bathroom a hairdryer, safe, radio, telephone and Satellite TV.
Most rooms will be Twin/Double for sole use, some rooms will be Single
The transfer from Innsbruk Airport to the hotel is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes, depending on weather and traffic.
You may either take group ski lessons, private ski lessons or form groups to enjoy exploring the slopes together. Whatever you preference your Tour Leader will be available to help organise your skiing.
Poor piste conditions can be hazardous to ski equipment as uncovered rocks and stones can easily scratch and damage skis and snowboards. We strongly recommend you inspect your ski hire equipment at the start of your holiday and agree the state of their condition with the ski hire suppliers, as clients are responsible for the care of their hired equipment and should this equipment be damaged the ski hire suppliers are within their rights to ask for a compensation payment.
This can be hired in the resort where you will be advised about the most suitable equipment for your standard of skiing. It is very important to have ski boots that are comfortable and fit well, so do not be afraid to keep going back and changing your boots until you get a good fit. For your safety, we advise that you wear a ski helmet wherever possible.

On a skiing holiday, dress is generally very informal, the emphasis being on comfort and warmth. We recommend that you pack a pair of skiing trousers and warm ski jacket or a waterproof shell and separate fleece lining or an all-in-one ski suit. Thermal or silk underwear is recommended. Cotton/cotton mix roll necks, T-shirts or sweat shirts; several thin layers are better than one thick layer. Ski socks, ski gloves or mitts and a hat or headband are suggested. Where temperatures are expected to be well below zero, take a facemask or balaclava. Moon boots or waterproof walking shoes are a “must”. Suntan cream (high protective factor), lip salve, sunglasses and/or goggles are all very useful items to pack. Casual clothes are ideal for the evenings; it is unusual on skiing holidays to dress formally in the evenings.
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on. If you choose to have ski lessons, you may also like to thank your ski instructor at the end of the week with a token of appreciation.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
