My main gripe with Mayrhofen (probably my only gripe actually) is the access to the main ski area is limited to one gondola. The Penken gondola links to town to the pistes up the mountain but there's no other lifts (you have to go to the other satellite villages for that). Similarly, there's no way to ski back down into the town from that side of the mountain. It creates the crazy scenario where you get massive queues in the morning (going up) and in the evening (going down) that can leave you waiting up to 45mins before you can get onto the gondola.
There is a smaller ski area on the other side of the village that does provide a ski trail back down into the town but again this is only serviced by one gondola.
In fairness to the resort, the pistes are all well marked and well groomed (the piste map leaves a lot to be desired though) and there's plenty of scope for all level of skier or boarder to enjoy during your stay. But I won't be returning until they at least find a way to build a trail that gets you back down the mountain.
Incidentally, we stayed in the Obermair hotel, which is an excellent ski hotel on the outskirts of town (a good 15min walk from the Penken gondola) and I would recommend that to anyone who is intent on going.
