Ski area Sölden

At the beginning of the 2017 winter season, the lift pass "Sölden & Obergurgl-Hochgurgl" makes it possible to switch unlimitedly between the ski areas Sölden and Obergurgl-Hochgurgl with lift passes valid from 3 days. Like this, the selection of pistes is extended to 256 km of piste and 56 lifts! With 2 days lift passes, the lift pass "Sölden" applies, giving you access to 144 km of first-class piste at 1,350 m - 3,340 m, connected by over 36 modern lifts. Well-known due to its glacier ski areas, Rettenbach and Tiefenbach, which along with their three peaks Tiefenbachkogl (3,309 m), Innere Schwarze Schneid (3,370 m) and Gaislachkogl (3,058 m) are used year-round by national ski teams and "normal" ski fans alike. Beginners will get their money's worth in on the Innerwald and the Giggijoch whereas experts will hve access to numerous blue and red pistes throughout the entire ski area. Pros can head over to the Gaislachkogl to take on the more demanding pistes.

In winter, Sölden's ski area is among one of the best in the Alps. As Austria's only glacier ski area, three 3,000 m mountains are perfectly connected with lifts. The newest feature is the gondola on the far side of Rettenbach, which speeds up the "Golden Gate to the Glacier" - the connection between Giggijoch and the glacial ski area. Newest facilities include the shuttle connection between the centre and the Innerwald lifts, as well as a new gondola at the Gaislachkogel. Furthermore, the newly built Giggijoch lift started operation in the 2016/2017 winter season, taking approx. 4,500 winter sports fans per hour into the heart of the Sölden ski area. Because of this, the Giggijoch lift has the highest transportation capacity in the world.

The Ice Q-Restaurant & Lounge at the Gaislachkogel valley station was voted as one of the best mountain restaurants, and invites all demanding gourmets to turn in. The purist glass building on over 3,000 m has a fantastic view of the surrounding mountain landscape and the Big3. The upper class cuisine offers alpine specialities and selected wines, as well as a romantic "Summit Dinner" once per week. Make yourself comfortable in sheepskin slippers and have a glass of champagne in the lounge. A freely swinging hanging bridge leads you to the connected observation point which gives you a wonderful view on the Big3.

A special highlight in this ski area are the many free Wi-Fi hotspots it offers for all its visitors! Not only that, but all cable cars for the Giggijoch lift provide Wi-Fi as well. Only a few easy steps are required to access the Internet and you can instantly supply your friends and family with your holiday news and photos.

A further highlight in the ski area is the night skiing at the Gaislachkogel lift. Every Wednesday from January to March, the piste is floodlit while different acts play on stage in the background. Shortly before the last valley descent, the evening is rounded off with musical fireworks.

Not to be missed is the "BIG3 - Rallye" - check out the entire ski area, including the Big 3 peaks (Gaislachkogl, Tiefenbachkogl, Schwarze Schneid)- a truly unique experience, breathtaking views included!

The boarder scene is found in the snow park on Giggijoch, which, with half-pipe, boarder cross, kickers, tubes, jibs and rails leave no wish unfulfilled. Additionally, the Oetz Valley region is a true free ride paradise with over 70 km of off-piste variations and tons of powder snow. The descents, with up to 2,000 m difference in altitude, are a welcome thrill for every free rider and offer a tons of fun.
