Mayrhofen’s Penken Park is back for another season

Mayrhofen  is one of the best loved European resorts with shredders who make the journey to Austria’s Tirol region – the region is ram packed with ski areas, incredible terrain,  unbelievable freeride options and – thanks to the Penken Park – some of the best freestyle facilities in Europe. The good news is that the Penken Park is now open for the season and ready for you to hit it up. Check out the park news below for events that are coming up over the season, but for up to the minute park reports and live webcams, click here 

Penken Park Team

A word in advance: Park Designer Norbert Benauer and Park Groomer Steff Morocutti are going to take care of Penken Park once again this season and they’ll make sure that you guys will find a park that is just right for your needs – playful and mad, with creative lines and monster jumps! When planning the park, Norbert and Steff rely on the feedback of their mates from the Penken Park Team. The pros forward their wishes, hints and ideas out of the rider perspective to the playground’s masterminds. But who is part of the team? The consultants of freestyle are Werni Stock, Tom Tramnitz, Alex Walch, Mario Wanger und Simo Peltola. Simo Peltola? Yes – you heard right! The Penken Park Team’s latest entry is coming from the far north and is the first freeskier of the clique. You might wanna check out his style?
