Christmas in Mayrhofen

Spending Christmas week in Mayrhofen first time skiing and forst Christmas away. Are there any restaurants open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? Do people ski on these days? Are the ski lifts open?

Any suggestions for lovely Christmassy activities for 2 adults and 1 teenager?

As Mayrhofen is a big ski destination - you should find most restaurants open. Some may close early Christmas Eve.

Ski lifts will operate and most visitors will ski both days. Many restaurants withoutdoor bars in the mountains too for a fun afternoon.

Hopefully the new Ahornbahn ( cable car )will be completed and offer much more lift capacity from the town center.

Several ski schools- many say that the Habeler ski school is the best.

Mayrhofen has an extensive snow- making network to help insure good snow if nature does not help.

Nice walks along the Ziller River- numerous bars and discos.

The Zillertalbahn ( narrow guage railway often with a steam engine can take you through the valley.

Sleigh Rides

Great views if weather is good.
