Sölden is totally unique as a ski area, with three mountains over 3,000 metres and two glaciers - Retttenbach and Tiefenbach, ensuring superb snow conditions and reliability. The 'BIG 3 Rally' loop takes you to all of the 3,000m plus peaks on a 50km circuit in a day that will take you to some viewpoints you will be sure to remember. Skiing is almost exclusively above the tree line with 144 km of world–class skiing for all ability levels, easily accessible by the efficient lift system. 

The lift pass also covers a further 110km of wide open, cruising runs in the Obergurgl-Hochgurgl ski area - just jump on the ski bus and spend a day or two exploring this area.

With more than 30 mountain huts and restaurants in the Sölden ski area - be sure to visit ‘ice Q’. Perched on top of the Gaislachkogl peak, recognisable by its glass façade and steel towers, and used as a location in the James Bond film ‘Spectre’.

Down in the village, traditional Tyrolean-style buildings stretch along the valley, and Sölden has a lively atmosphere with many après-ski bars, clubs and restaurants.

Choose Sölden for your ski holiday and you will be wowed by the overwhelming scenery and high-altitude skiing at its best.
