Our ski school in Sölden makes sure beginners get the best start on their gentle nursery slopes at the top of the Giggijoch gondola. You then progress up into the bowl of slopes around Giggijoch with plenty of blue runs on which to further develop your skills.
The majority of this area is great for intermediate skiers. Modern lifts and the expansive network of pistes take you from Sölden, through the "Golden Gate to the Glacier" lifts to the two glaciers. If you like a challenge, tackle the "Big 3 Tour", taking you to Schwarze Schneide (3,340m), Tiefenbachkogel (3,249m) and Gaislachkogel (3,058m).
With 28km of black runs and high mountains offering excellent off piste conditions, advanced skiers will find plenty to challenge them. Alternatively, if you like freestyle, search out to the BASE park with all its attractions.
The Teifenbach and Rettenbach glaciers are easily accessible from Sölden, and have a wonderful 34km of perfectly groomed runs for you to explore. They're linked together by the the Rosi Mittermeier Road Tunnel, and Rettenbach even houses the only international Test Center for winter sports in the world.
Sölden has cross-country trails for both classic and skating styles. You can follow tracks that make their way under the shade of the trees, down gently rolling hills or across the mountains on the high-altitude trails in Umhausen. All ability levels can ski these trails, and they're free to use all season.
Sölden, and its sister resort, Hochsölden, are home to 70km of off-piste trails. Deep powder snow is in abundance here, and with backcountry runs galore, right in the middle of the 3,000m mountains, you'll be in heaven. Hainbachjoch and Giggijoch offer easier freeskiing, while Gaislachkogl has tougher terrain with descents that have up to a 1,500m vertical drop.
Sölden is popular with boarders of all levels. The Giggijoch is great for beginners and intermediates with its wide, gentle slopes, and the Gaislachjogel is the best freeride terrain in the area - it's well known for its steep runs and gnarly chutes. For freestyling fun, Area 47 has a range of kickers, tables, rails and half-pipes, as well as a chill-out area with music. The Rettenberg glacier often has the softest powder snow on the mountain, while the Tiefenbach glacier is better for perfecting your technique on piste.
