The [R685R, Mayrhofen] White Lounge Igloo Hotel is set to open early January 2009 and offers the ultimate mountain experience.

Nestled at 2,000 metres on the Ahorn Plateau, the White Lounge Igloo Hotel is built every year. The property is comprised of ten individually styled igloo suites, which offer cosy sleeping areas covered in sheepskins and sleeping bags, as well as a Finnish sauna with panoramic views over the Zillertal valley, an igloo bar, dining igloo, chill-out igloo and two snow bars.

The opening of the White Lounge Igloo Hotel depends on the construction progress (and the weather conditions), but overnight accommodations are initially available between January 4 and April 12, 2009. However, if the construction starts early, overnight stays could be possible as early as December 2008.

The hotel offers the ultimate romantic experience with a ‘couple package' featuring a cosy igloo suite accompanied by a champagne dinner under the stars and use of the sauna.

The ‘party package' is a hit with young skiers. Every Tuesday evening from 8pm to 11pm, as day trippers take the Ahornbahn cable car back to the valley, the White Lounge Igloo Hotel hosts a bonfire party on the mountain.
