A quite fun packed ski resort. Everything here is basically geared towards snowboarding and free skiing. There are many slope types that are available and we can say that the entire mountain side is beautiful.

You should consider a visit during the famous Snowbombing Festival, which is quite massive from a musical and cultural point of view.

Mayrhofen is great if you want to relax or just cut loose. We recommended the festival because the atmosphere is even better and the entertainment options are numerous during that time. The experience is definitely memorable.
