Winter in Sölden
Ski Region Facts
Sölden Stands for Pure Winter Sports
Boarders Park, Race Course, Easy Cross or mogul slopes - the
opportunities to make the most of this fantastic skiing region are
The normal winter skiing region is connected to
both glacier ski regions by the "Golden Gate to the glacier" ski lifts,
so that you can easily get to the glaciers at an altitude of up to
3,250 m from the town.
From the "Schwarze Schneid" on
the Rettenbach Glacier the longest ski-run, around 12.8 km long
with an altitude difference of 1,880 m, leads you into the valley. The
skiing trail through the Rettenbach Valley (6 km) is an insider's tip
for all skiing fans.
63 km red, 53 km blue and
28 km black runs as well as 6 km of skiing trails provide a
comprehensive range. From simple terrain for beginners on the Giggijoch
to the much more demanding pistes on the Gaislachkogl mountain.
The Gaislachkogl (3,058 m) is also popular with those who want to explore away from the marked pistes.
Absolute Snow Guarantee
from November to May due to:
- the altitude of the skiing region (1,350 - 3,250 m),
- 2 glacier skiing regions on the Rettenbach & Tiefenbach Glaciers,
- artificial snow-making machines on all ski-runs below 2,200 m.
The Big 3
With the "Big 3" Sölden is the only skiing region in Austria with three 3,000 m summits which can be accessed by ski lifts.
The "BIG-3 Rally" not only leads to all three summits, but through the whole skiing region.
20 mountain lodges and restaurants offer an inviting atmosphere for a
break after skiing - from the quaint mountain huts to the modern, large
restaurants - let your après ski start before you leave the mountain!
