Top winter destination 2012: Mayrhofen

Mayrhofen in Austria makes a wonderful choice for your 2012 ski holiday as it has a perfect balance of traditional Austrian buildings and cuisine.

But venture out at night and you’ll find the liveliest après ski scene in the region, with an abundance of bars and clubs for you to enjoy yourself after a long day on the slopes.

If however, you are wishing to avoid the après ski hype, this versatile place is still perfect for you as the bars are present but not dominating and if a nice meal and a bottle of wine is more your thing this Tyrolean town is more than happy to oblige with the abundance of fine eateries in the town.

There are three main ski areas for you to explore including the Hintertux glacier which guarantees somewhere to ski all year round.

There are plenty of pistes perfect for beginners but also enough to satisfy the intermediates and for the experts among you what a treat; if you think you can handle it you can test your skills on the famous Harikri run which at a 78% gradient is the steepest piste in Austria and translates as ‘suicide’ in Japanese!

Mayrhofen has been the first choice for skiers and boarders for years due to the endless pistes, Austrian charm and in some bars in the high street you can buy a pint for €2 but there is also plenty to do for non-skiers as well. Think horse drawn sleigh rides, tobogganing, ice skating and there are plenty spa facilities, for those who fancy a bit of pampering.

No matter what your age, the charming Austrian resort of Mayrhofen has something offer for everyone and will make the perfect choice for your 2012 ski holiday.
