During a winter holiday in the Zillertal at our accommodation you can visit a new ski area every day, whether you choose to visit the Zillertal Arena or the local ski resort in Mayrhofen, offering a remarkable 136 slope kilometres. However, if you are looking for something unique, I recommend you to tackle the Harakiri slope. “Tackle” in the truest sense of the word, because this slope is extremely challenging and will require all of your courage as well as skill. It has a gradient of 78 percent! Many skiers and snowboarders cast one glance and chicken out. I recommend to try slope no. 12 first. If you can manage this slope, then you are ready for the Harakiri. Maybe you are wondering about the name. Harakiri stands for the ritual suicide of Japanese men, which was common among the Samurai until the 19th century; it was a ritual to restore their honour. The name aims to tease men out of their comfort zone and to dare them to try this descent. Believe me: If you have made it down this slope, you will feel a different man. Last but not least, remember: sharp ski edges are a must!
