– Which skiing area is near and how to get there?
Most Ski areas of the Zillervalley are reachable within 10 to 25 minutes by car. Ski Buses from Ginzling take you to Mayrhofen. The ski area there is called Penken and is known for its variety in slopes and the freestyle Park. It is a big connected ski area, where you can get with cable cars and slopes from Mayrhofen all the way to Lanersbach. From Mayrhofen you can also catch the ‘Greenline’ which takes you to Finkenberg (Penken), Lanersbach (Rastkogel) and Tux (Skigebiet Eggalm) and to Hintertuxer Glacier.
– Is the Skipass included in the package?
No, but it’s up to you how often you like to go snowboarding or skiing. We will help to organise and show you the best areas.
– What kinds of Ski pass can you get?
– Can you rent gear?
Yes, almost every cable car station has a ski and snowboard rental service. Freeriding gear is also available. We will help to organise it for you.
– Do you need Ski – or Snowboarding skills?
Not at all. You have the possibility to book a beginners course in skiing or snowboarding, we help you to find a course that is good and not to pricey. Or you can just relax and take in the surroundings, go for a walk in the snow or enjoy the wellness area, while the others are on the mountain.
– Is Freeriding experience necessary to take part in the Retreat?
No. Its up to you. We have a mountain guide for one day and depending on the levels and wishes of the group Freeriding is possible off pist or with Ski- and Splitboard touring.
– What is Freeriding?
Freeriding is riding the Backcountry or off-piste away from the secured slopes of the ski areas. Riding skills in fresh deep snow and a basic knowledge in avalanche know how is necessary to ride safely.
