The Mayrhofen Ski Safari, and the added bonus of wall to wall sunshine!
We had such a fantastic week in Mayrhofen. In fact, all the Ziller Valley. With the great links from resort to resort via the transportation links available all on your lift pass!
Starting as always on the Penken (Mayrhofen area) and spending two days exploring the area we managed to find our ski legs on various pistes within the resort.
Mayrhofen boasts of a great town life and lots of entertainment, if that’s what you want, or, our Hotels provided both evening music and dancing if that’s your thing or return to your room for a quiet nights sleep! your choice. The Neue Post hotel provides a top quality wellness area which is perfect for easing those tired legs after a day’s worth of ripping the mountain up.
Our great team this year involved, Barbara, Louise, Belinda, Nikki, Jess and Tracy. Great company thank you. We had a ski agenda, and that’s to leave the week with some new found skills to improve your ski performance and I think we did that judging by your smiles!
After skiing the Penken area we swiftly moved onto the Kaltenbach arena which links up to Hoch Fugen, This hosts some amazing skiing with more than enough to keep us occupied for a few days if we so wished. Our plan was to get up to the Hintertux glacier, however, after our visit to the Arhorn Ski area it was soon apparent that with so few people in that part of the resort and superb snow it was to become our favorite area to ski. In fact, its the locals mountain of choice. Home of some of the worlds most famous ski racers. There was plenty of race training going on down the black run whilst we were there.
It’s always the ‘carving’ skills which we are all focused on. After a few days warming up, carving seemed to take precedent whilst we had some empty pistes on the Arhorn. Perfect gradients for building confidence and learning how we can best find that early elusive edge, and keep it …..all the way round that arc!
Seen here some images of the team practicing and learning new skills to create that rounded arc on the edge. More images to be found on our facebook group page. www.facebook.com/worldclassskiing
