Full review

Something for everyone although the advertized 227km, 59 lifts and 1 ticket caters to the intermediate crowd - and families, lots of families. The Horberg & Penken mountains are chock full of ski schoolers and beginners but the Finkenberg side has fewer skiers. Ski out to the valley is marginal (as of Feb 2) at best but possible. Outstanding frequent bus connections between all the mountains is included in the price of your lift ticket. Best place for wide-open bowl-type skiing is the Hintertuxer Glacier but beware of flat light since there aren't many trees to add contrast to the runs. As everywhere in Mayrhofen, beginners are everywhere and not exactly courteous.
