The area is however well known for its advanced pistes and is flocked by daredevils, professional skiers and thrill-seeking skiers looking to take on some of the most difficult runs in Europe; Harakiri in Mayrhofen for example is one of the most infamous ski runs in the area.

The apres-ski in Mayrhofen is particularly famous.
