Steepness defined! The Harakiri piste at Penken features an insane 78% grade, and you better bring all your skill and courage to go down this way.

Freestylers should check out Vans' Penken Park – six areas for all skill levels filled with fun kicks, rails, boxes and jumps.

But the soft slopes are great for leisurely skiing. The friendly mountain Ahorn is the perfect destination for everybody who wants to spend his or her skiing holiday far away from the hustle and bustle. Families, beginners, and leisure skiers alike love it. Tip: Try the 5,5-km long run to Mayrhofen with White lounge: Combined igloo bar and chill-out area with relaxing lounge music.
