With Christmas and New Year out of the way its time to get down to the serious business of beer and schnapps.  As you walk around Mayrhofen you will no doubt come across many little dudes in funny hats talking passionately about backside 180s and their exploits on the proline.

Although this is indeed very impressive, we are going to educate you on the real Mayrhofen Proline.

Lets be honest, most returning guests to Mayrhofen don’t come back just for the ski or snowboarding, but the legendary party options that the town provides.  As enthusiastic Après Skiers, we thought it only right to give a little insight into how we go about a night on the town.

There are of course many other bars in Mayrhofen, however the following strategy is well tested and is guaranteed to produce results that will satisfy even the most competent booze hound.

When on the mountain it’s important not to over extend yourself and so with safety in mind we like to finish all snow sport activities by 2.30 and head to the first venue, which is of course is …..

The Pilz Bar 

Located at the top of the Penken, the Pilz Bar is well equipped to aid in your re-hydration after a hard day on the mountain.  Its worth getting in there early as the place gets super busy.  Prices are reasonable, with a beer c3 euro and they party until the last gondola.  When the sun comes out, the roof comes off and you’ll be singing along to Mama Laudaa before you know it!

Once you’re turfed out of here, its down in the Penkenbahn and back to your hotel for a quick change (trust us you don’t want to be that guy still in their salopettes at midnight)

Now time for the serious business!

6pm at Mike’s Sports Bar is where it all starts.

As the name suggests, this is a Sports Bar owned by Mike, ably assisted by Chris, Wendy and Siobhan.  You’ll do well to find 4 better people, and handily they also happen to be very well skilled in the art of party machen!

If the football or rugby is on then you can watch all of that here.  If not, its all about Jager Darts, or dice with Gina (currently single and ready to mingle – dms to @rocklady84) with the loser of course buying the shots.  Remember it’s not about winning, its just making sure you don’t lose!

If you’re lucky you may also get to experience a set from the legendary DJ Fuse, who is often in town when free of his various worldwide residencies.

You probably won’t want to leave, but all good things come to an end and so when its time to move on, it’s just a short walk to the next venue.

Scotland Yard

A traditional pub style environment makes Scotland Yard one of the most popular bars in Mayrhofen.

With a dart board, Guinness on tap, a range of pizza and other bar snacks it is no surprise that Scotland Yard is frequented by many season workers, locals and guests alike. Clemens, Theresa and team will serve you at the bar or at your table and keep you fed and watered well into the early hours. 

Live music, DJs and party nights gives Scotties a well deserved reputation as a top Mayrhofen party spot.

It’s also home to Mayrhofen’s third best bar person aka Aussie Matt.  Matt once made the very bold claim that he could drink more shots than anyone in the bar.  We think he is full of it, however if you are in town then you might want to call him out on this!

With the engine well and truly started it’s now time to strap on your dancing boots and get involved with the final stop.

Bruck n Stadl

Bruck n Stadl is located at the top of the town, just over the bridge and so is only a 5 minute walk from Scotties, however there are often taxis outside in case of bad weather.

Open from 3pm this is the biggest Après Ski venue in Mayrhofen.  Multiple bars and dance floor, this is the place to get loose!  A recent addition this year has seen the creation of the Open Air Bar, which is really well done and the perfect place to finish your evening..  Open until late, the DJ will spin a great mix of international hits as well as some more local classics!

Once you’ve put a good shift in here, you should be pretty much done, especially if you want to get on the mountain the next day. For those with a bit more left in the locker, then its a taxi to Fuchslöchl, however this is a story for another time!

As any experience athlete knows, nutrition is hugely important and so before you go, you may want to pop into the Imbiss and see Eki Eki and Mustafa and experience probably the best kebab you’ve ever had.  A strong claim indeed, but when you’ve had one, you’ll know!

That ladies and gents is the real Mayrhofen Proline.  A simple but highly effective way to ensure a great night out in Mayrhofen.
