Ski holidays in Sölden

Skiing in Sölden, the most famous winter sports destination in the Ötztal Arena, means skiing a beautiful ski resort with a steady snow fall and amazing après-ski parties that can rival any across the Alps.

Many international snowboarding and skiing competitions in Sölden are well-respected and are regularly on the agenda. Sölden ski holidays also offer a lot away from the slopes, in the village you will find the Freizeit Arena, a recreation centre with a swimming pool, sauna, gym, tennis courts, a bowling alley, a cinema, restaurants and more. Aside from skiing in Sölden there are other winter sports activities you can get involved with, you can also ice skate and sleigh on a 4km flood-lit track.

Sölden also has approximately 30 kilometers of hiking trails set out along the river and around the village. The highest point to be reached by foot is Hochsölden, at an altitude of 2027m.

Hochsölden is a small village and is ideal for families with children. The village is situated on the Giggijoch which means that you can nearly always ski back to your accommodation. You can also reach this village by car and ski lift and there is even a bus service between Sölden and Hochsölden (approx. 9 kilometers). Because the village primarily consists of hotels the night life is quite low key, but you can always head down to Sölden for the real party atmosphere.

Ötztal Arena

The ski resort has two skiable glaciers: the Rettenbach and the Tiefenbach. Thanks to the glaciers, Sölden can guarantee you snow and you can, in principle, enjoy your skiing 365 days a year! This is also the only Austrian ski resort with three mountain peaks rising over 3000 meters (9,800ft) that can be reached with ski lifts! The BIG 3, as the peaks are also known, are the Gaislachkugl, the Tiefenbachkugl and the Schwarze Schneid.

The majority of the slopes, 130 km (81 ml), are at Sölden. From here you can reach two ski resorts surrounding the Gaislachkugl and Giggijoch. The latter resort is more suitable for families. It is quick to reach by road or lift, has predominantly easy pistes and a children's ski school. The area of Gaislachkugl on the other hand consists for the most part, more difficult red slopes.

The ski resort near the Rettenbach glacier is proclaimed by experts to be the most challenging in Austria! There are long, steep descents and difficult pistes complete with mogul fields. So if you dare, the challenge awaits you!

The Tiefenbach glacier offers flatter terrain ideal for beginners and snowboarders.

At Giggijoch there are big jumps, a half pipe, rails, a bumper, spine and various other obstacles for snowboarders and freestyle skiers. There is another snowpark at the Rettenbach glacier.

In Sölden there are plenty of bars and clubs that ensure a bustling après-ski atmosphere. We can offer you accommodations in Sölden, Hochsölden, Längenfeld and Hochgurgl where you have everything you need for a great holiday!
