Sölden Ski Resort

Sölden has the height that gives it a snowsure advantage and has over the years built a reputation of offering winter tourists just what they want. The main resort is located at a height of 1377m, the satellite resort (Hochsolden) is much higher at 2090m while there is a 3000m high ridge between the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers. Skiing takes place on both sides of the range as well as Gaislachkogl (3060m) and Schwarzkogl (3020m).

Skiers come here for the quality of the snow and it’s not surprising that the ski season extends into the summer and the World Cup ski races start here as early as October. Non-skiers are not left out as exciting observation points dot the area for them to appreciate the mountain views.

The official figures put the extent of the ski area as average- 145kms of piste and 33 lifts. This appears bigger in reality because of the horizontal and vertical scope of the runs. There are good ski schools here with a wide range of runs for skiers. Advanced skiers can use the resort’s high lifts if they desire off-piste for freeriding and ski touring with a guide. Bold skiers have more options if they opt for the Ötztal Super Skipass which gives access to 5 other ski areas, together with Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, which is a 25-minute drive away.

Where to stay

Sölden & Hochsolden Accommodation

Hochsolden is more convenient for the slopes (you can often ski to the door of your hotel) but it’s quiet at night. Solden is now rather stretched out and there is very little ski-in, ski-out accommodation, but the lively apres ski starts early and continues late into the night.
