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.
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.
