Those who conquer the descent can decorate themselves with the Harakiri T-shirt. Another highlight on the Penken is the Penken Park, which is one of the best snow parks in Europe. Less action, but all the more sensual pleasure, is what the Ahorn pleasure mountain offers - accessible with Austria's largest gondola, the Ahornbahn. At the top, the plateau awaits you with a fantastic panorama, winter hiking trails, slopes for the whole family and the fun slope for all ages and levels of ability.

The Action Mountain Penken and the Leisure Mountain Ahorn are the ideal hotspots for adrenaline junkies of all ages and levels of ability. With the first turns you are still brave and let the boards run. But then one becomes more cautious: No wonder, because the hara-kiri deserves respect.
