Torchlit Descent In Mayrhofen

The torchlit descent of the Mayrhofen ski schools has been part of the Mayrhofen-Hippach region’s New Year’s Eve programme for years. Around 200 ski instructors from the Mayrhofen ski schools will be taking part in the traditional torchlight run on 30 December 2019.

This year local music legends the Schürzenjäger will be playing a live concert directly at the Ahornbahn valley station. The concert by the renowned Schürzenjäger will start at 16:30.

The torchlit descent by the ski instructors will follow at around 17.30. Led by mountaineering legend Peter Habeler, they will ski down the Ahorn run to the event site.

As soon as all ski schools have reached the festival area, there will be a firework display to welcome the New Year a little earlier.
