Mayrhofen (Austria Skiing)

Single Parent Ski Holiday in Tyrol’s Picturesque Mayrhofen based at Traditional 4-Star Family Hotel

For Easter 2018, we have chosen to stay in the picturesque, rustic village of Mayrhofen, one of the top ten ski resorts in Europe. Mayrhofen in the famous Ziller Valley in Tyrol has kept its traditional Tyrolean architecture and charm and that is what we love about it.

Our group of single parent families will be staying at the traditional 4-star hotel Neue Post, winner of Tripadvisor’s prestigious Certificate of Excellence. Our hotel is located just off the buzzing centre of Mayrhofen, and is approximately a 10-minute walk from the Penken cable car station, the entry to the ski circuit of the Zillertal Alps. It is a family-run hotel with a cosy feel, furnished in traditional Tyrolean style with a restaurant, bar area, café with patisserie, kids room, teenage area, spa and indoor pool. The hotel spa boasts several saunas, steam room, infrared cabin and a relaxation area with heated water beds. You can also book massages here.

The hotel’s traditional Tyrolean style rooms feature cable TV, telephone, free Wi-Fi and a safety deposit box, as well as an ensuite bathroom with hairdryer, bathrobe and spa basket for use in the spa and pool area. Breakfast is served in the form of a lavish buffet, while dinner is a 5-course meal including vegetarian options and a kids’ menu.

Skiing/snowboarding: Mayrhofen in Tyrol’s Zillertal is one of the most famous ski regions in Europe. Its three mountains, Ahorn, Penken and Eggalm, offer a total of 136 km of pistes and 57 modern lifts, with something for all levels of ability: from the Harikiri piste on Penken – the steepest piste in Austria – to the more leisurely blue and red runs on Ahorn, which are perfect for beginners and families, and home to the famous White Lounge, a combination of igloo bar and chill-out lounge. The ski region offers a great range of blue, red and black runs, the impressive Penken snow park with 8 different park areas, as well as the Hintertux glacier, an experience in its own right.

If you’re new to skiing or want to improve your skills, Austria’s ski schools are renowned for their qualified instructors, who will teach you and/or your children the skills you need to return year after year.

Other activities on offer: We will be offering a range of other fun winter activities to complement your single parent ski holiday. These will include floodlit tobogganing, night skiing in nearby Kaltenbach, an evening in one of the numerous après-ski bars in Mayrhofen, as well as ice skating and ice curling on the ice rink in Mayrhofen. And for any of you wishing to do even more than this, there is also an amazing adventure pool in the centre of Mayrhofen with slides, wave machines and much more.

Mayrhofen is located in Tyrol’s Ziller valley, approximately one hour from Innsbruck, the capital of Tyrol. The main ski region in Mayrhofen is Penken, but the resort is also connected to the Zillertal ski area with access to 489 km of downhill skiing, with 91 individual pistes served by 177 ski lifts. Mayrhofen is located close to the Hintertux glacier at 3,250 metres, which offers skiing all year round.

Our hotel is located in the centre of the village of Mayrhofen, at the end of the main high street with its wide range of restaurants, bars, cafés and boutiques. Characterised by beautiful Alpine buildings, the resort is lively and fun, and popular with English winter sports enthusiasts.

If you’re looking for a broader winter sports experience, meanwhile, there is also a range of other great sporting activities on offer in Mayrhofen and the surrounding area, including horse-drawn carriage rides through the countryside, cross-country skiing, snowshoe walks, an adventure pool with spa, ice skating and ice curling.

Please see below some testimonials from our 2018 ski holidays in Mayrhofen

"A fantastic holiday with everything organised brilliantly to ensure a stress-free and fun experience"
- Richard &Henry (14) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018

"This was my first trip away with Single Parents on Holidays so needless to say I was a little apprehensive before meeting everyone. However, I had nothing to worry about. The hosts were incredibly warm and welcoming; the other guests made me feel at home from the get-go; all of the things that mattered organised (so all I needed to do was turn up - bliss!) and the most important thing is that my son absolutely loved it and now wants me to book a summer trip. I could recommend these holidays more! "
- Dixie & Sonny (8) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018

"Mayrhofen provides a great family skiing experience. There is a good range of slopes taking learners from gentle to more challenging terrain, and a few tougher ones to keep the speed demons happy. Also the direction of the pistes ensures there's always somewhere good to ski even when the sun is doing its best to melt the snow. The children had an amazing time making new freinds and catching up with old ones, while I had the time to enjoy a great week with a welcoming and wonderfully diverse group of people. Thank you SPOH for making this possible."
- Elise, Sebastian (10) & Imogen (7) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018

"SPOH has made me feel so much happier about being a single parent. Meeting other people in my situation and having time to relax and enjoy my child is worth so much. It's such a great social experience for the children too. "
- Emilie & Charlie (7) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018

"Great fun and everything you need is organised!"
- Barry & Jasmine (7) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018

"The ski school in Mayrhofen was absolutely brilliant. Being situated at the top of the cable car it really felt like my son was properly in the mountains with me even though he was just at the early stages of learning. The end of week ski races and medal ceremony were such an occasion and it was lovely to share that with all the other SPOH parents all cheering on our children together. "
- Di & Jayden (5) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018

"Thank you SPOH for our third fantastic ski holiday! Such a fun group, organised so well by Sandra and Jacob who really went the extra mile to ensure everyone had a really special holiday. Already planning next year!"
- Laura & Georgia (8) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018

"Another year and another winning holiday with SPOH. Great hotel and skiing week with old friends and new and as always my personal and kids favourite week of the year. Many thanks to Sandra and Tennessee for an outstanding week and looking after us as such great hosts."
- Mark, Francesca (15) and Dominic (12) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, February 2018

"The SPOH skiing holidays are always such fun with the right mix of organisation and free time, they just make the holiday go without a hitch."
- Ruth & Sophie-Rose (15) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, February 2018

"It couldn't be any better! The kids and I had an absolutely brilliant time. Great company, lovely organisation, very smooth and warm and everything is made so easy by Sandra. The best holiday we've had, thank you."
- Annelies, Lexie (11) & Lucas (9) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, February 2018

"We went to Austria with Single Parents on Holiday for the first time this half term and I would really recommend it. Sandra was fantastic at helping me choose the right holiday for us and was very honest and open about the different types of people who would be there. I chose this one as I wanted a mix of mums and dads as this was important for my children, who lost their dad 2 years ago. At first it was a little hard trying to get to know everyone, as there were a number who had been on holiday together before, but as the week went on, we started to get to know everyone more. Sandra and Tennessee were very good at mixing with everyone and ensuring that no one was left out. I personally really enjoyed meeting a variety of different people, different ages and backgrounds and the dinners in the evening were really fun. They organised a great tobogganing evening, which the kids loved. The hotel was excellent and very Austrian which was lovely. The staff were very helpful and it was very clean. The pool and sauna facilities were very good. We really enjoyed being in the beautiful town of Mayrhofen and it was lovely walking through the town after a day's skiing. The skiing itself was excellent with lots of great runs and we were fortunate to have lots of snow. We have made some really good friends and had lots of fun. We will definitely book again. Thank you for a great holiday! "
