So what's it like?
Superb skiing, beautiful scenery and an exceptional snow park
The beautiful Ziller Valley is home to a number of ski areas totalling 625km of piste, all on one lift pass. Just beyond the end of the valley you have the Hintertux Glacier with 86km of piste. In the Ziller Valley itself the main ski areas are Hochzillertal/Hochfügen with 155km of piste, Zell am Ziller/Gerlos with 160km of piste and Mayrhofen/Finkenberg with 157km of piste. As well as the resorts of Mayrhofen, Finkenberg and Zell am Ziller, we also offer accommodation in other villages within the Mayrhofen/Ziller Valley ski areas. Currently we have accommodation in the small village of Ramsau, 10km from Mayrhofen. A single chairlift links the village to the Gerlosstein ski area and a 10 minutes ski bus ride takes you to the Mayrhofen Penken ski area. The Mayrhofen Area lift pass which covers all the ski areas in the Ziller Valley can be pre-booked and equipment hire and tuition should be booked on arrival. Look out for special offers as well - we regularly offer "allocation on arrival" Mayrhofen Ski Area special offers, with which you will be guaranteed accommodation in one of the villages on the Mayrhofen lift pass within the Ziller Valley such as Ramsau, Hippach or Schwendau.
Mayrhofen and Finkenberg are particularly good choices if this is your first time on skis. Patient instructors and gentle nursery slopes will ensure you get the most out of your first ski trip.
The Ziller Valley is an intermediate's paradise with over 625km of piste stretching from the high altitude of the Hintertux Glacier to the large network of pistes at Hochzillertal/Hochfügen. All areas are linked by public transport - either ski buses or the valley's train line. Mayrhofen, Finkenberg and Zell am Zeller are all good choices for intermediate skiers. In Mayrhofen you also have the added bonus of social skiing with your Crystal rep to help you make the most of the is fantasic valley.
There are tricky routes down the Penken Mountains to Schwendau and through the trees from the Ahorn (now served by the vast new Ahorn cable car. The Horberg ski area also offers a number of exciting long runs like the challenging Schafskopf mogul run. Don't miss a run down "Harakiri" - the steepest pisted black in Austria.
