Sölden ski holidays, together with Hochsölden, offer the largest ski area in Ötztal Arena, with 33 lifts and slopes suitable for all levels. The area has a strong snow record due to its high altitude and also due to the two glaciers, skiing on these glaciers in Sölden is even possible throughout the summer. Being able to ski practically all year round on a glacier at an altitude of 3250m makes Sölden ski holidays high on the wish list for many winter holiday goers.
The Ötztal Arena is the only ski area in Austria with mountain peaks reaching higher than 3000m, these are known as the Big 3. If you’re looking for a real challenge when snowboarding or skiing in Sölden, you can attempt the Big 3 Rally with routes that cover over 50km.
Clients who have booked a lift pass of more than 3 days for their ski holiday in Sölden, can now also enjoy the ski area of Obergurgl and Hochgurgl. This ski area adds another 110km to the already huge ski region of Sölden and has many more blue, red and black slopes. If the skiing in Sölden isn’t challenging enough, you can take on one of the most difficult pistes in Austria, the Hohe Mut.
In Sölden there are many bars in the town and at the foot of the mountain, where you can enjoy the wonderful après-ski. We offer a variety of ski packages to Sölden, Hochsölden and Vent, from cheap and cheerful to luxurious and all-inclusives, where you will be able to enjoy a wonderful ski holiday on the Sölden slopes.
