About the Resort
A spectacular Austrian ski resort, hidden amongst the Ötztal Valley, its definitely worth learning more about Solden. The piste map will ensure you experience guaranteed snow; thanks to its excellent snowmaking system. It’s a traditional ski resort that’s known for its party scene too, brilliant for holidaymakers from day to night. Getting
Solden is a great resort that caters for skiers of all standards. You’ll find a good variety of ski schools here to help improve your technique – or learn to ski. Starting off at the nursery runs at Innerwald which you’ll find close the bottom of the Gaislachkogl gondola, it’s a good place to begin your ski journey. The Solden beginners’ pistes are plentiful here – you’ve got 67km of blue runs, especially on the Tiefenbach glacier. It’s also well worth trying the Blue 13 on Giggijoch which is particularly well-groomed and ideal for beginners.
When you’re looking at Solden ski accommodation, you’ll find that some of it is quite spread out which is worth bearing in mind when you’re preparing for your visit. You’ll also find that most of the places are to stay are the Solden hotels
There’s no denying that the Solden weather and snow conditions are excellent here. The glaciers reach 3340m and most of the Solden piste map is over 2000m. Not only this but they are well prepared for poor weather, with an excellent snowmaking system; it’s one of the best snow-sure resorts found throughout the Alps
We really like Solden with its excellent reputation for its snow reliability; a great place to make the most of the exceptional long runs that are available through this extensive resort. Intermediates in particular will love Solden’s opportunities to experience some real adventure.
Solden is a great resort for skiers and a great benefit is that you won’t need to queue too much. You’ll be able to use your Solden lift pass on their extensive lifts which have the capacity to take 68,000 snow lovers per hour. There’s a great expanse of glacier skiing to enjoy, plus three peaks which reach over 3000m; so you won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for a challenge.
+Excellent snow record, with glacier access.
