In Tyrol's liveliest valley, the village of Hippach sits in the heart of the Zillertal, Kitzbühl, and Tux Alps. Thanks to this position Hippach is one of the best entry points to the Mayrhofen ski area and its extensive snow sports opportunities - the lifts in Hippach are often quieter than in the centre of Mayrhofen, and at the end of the day you can ski off-piste right back to Hippach. Catering for all ability levels the Mayrhofen ski area has 159km of marked slopes and is a great destination for mixed ability groups. Split across two mountains, Ahorn and Penken, there are an abundance of spectacular panoramas and sports opportunities to be found. Families and beginners will enjoy the Ahorn mountain most with its wide gentle slopes. The Penken side has a variety of slopes and is best known for the challenging Harakiri, Austria's steepest run. Also from Mount Penken you can go on to discover the other resorts in Zillertal: Finkenberg, Rastkogel, and Eggalm. Not just focused on downhill skiing and snowboarding, Mayrhofen also has one of the best snowparks in Tyrol. The Vans Penken Park is split into different ability zones, and attracts international freestylers with its 11 kickers, 2 hips, half-pipe, and 34 boxes and rails.From Hippach you can enjoy the snow around Zillertal with a huge number of activities. A good starting point is the Zillertal Action Club and Mountain Sports Zillertal who organise loads of sports, like ice climbing, tobogganing, and snow rafting and tubing. Flying around the spectacular peaks of the area, either solo or with an experienced pilot, is possible through a variety of paragliding and hand gliding companies. Or if you prefer land-based slower-paced activities you can choose from numerous hiking and snowshoeing trails across the area.Back in the village after your activities there are swimming pools, saunas, and spas where you can relax. And plenty of bars and restaurants for your après ski time.
