Sölden Ski Resort

To date, Sölden is the largest ski center in Europe of high class. It will satisfy the needs of both beginners in winter sports and professionals.

Самый популярный австрийский горнолыжный курорт

This is the only ski resort in Austria with three peaks with a height of 3 thousand meters. The "Big Three" includes Gaislachkogl (3058 m), Tiefenbachkogl (3309 m) and Schwarze Schneid (3,370 m). They are equipped with observation platforms for admiring fascinating views. To Tiefenbachkoglu there is an opportunity on the gondola to rise from Tiefenbach. From the peak lifts and tracks will be delivered to Rettenbach, Giggijoch, Gaislachkogl.

Sölden - a few villages, hamlets along the river Etzaler-Ahe. Among the famous mountain villages, Obergurgl and Hochgurgl are very popular. These are highland resorts, a paradise for extreme sports. From here on the highway (June-September, about 14 € per car) follow the Timmelsjökh pass (2509 m). In the towns of Langelfeld and Umhausen, only the development of skiing areas has begun, but 16 km of ski, mostly "red", routes have already been laid.

The valley of Otztal is chosen not by chance for a ski resort. The uniqueness of the microclimate, and the terrain is protected by high mountains from four sides, allowed to hold competitions here on a world level. Since 2002, the first stage of the World Cup in Alpine skiing has been held in Sölden.

What objects of infrastructure will please Sölden

For tourists who prefer a quiet holiday, Sölden will not work, because it is very noisy, especially in the evenings. The resort created a lot of various amenities and fascinating moments. Let's talk about some of them.

To ensure that tourists do not get bored, around Sölden grew up like mushrooms, restaurants, cafes and bars (over 50), about a dozen nightclubs were built, as well as the Freizeit Arena wellness complex, the Aqua Dome and Langenfeld spa complexes Thermal Spa ». The equipment is rented in 5 centers, in 6 schools it is taught to ski, on snowboard. There are clubs of mountaineering, paragliding. And that's not it.

In April, the ice festival "Hannibal" is held in Sölden.

The resort has a lot of Russian-speaking instructors.

On Wednesdays in the valley passes the Tyrolean evening: men in shorts sing, dance, pour mulled wine to those who wish.

Shops are open until 18:30. In them you will be offered a ski service (ski care): wax treatment of skis - 15 €, edge sharpening - 25 €, scratch removal - 35 €.

Приятная атмосфера альпийской деревни

And now let's talk about apress-ski (with fr. "After skis"). The expression itself sounds promising, for Sölden it is very suitable. In Tyrol, the most noisy parties, bars with live music, discos and unforgettable skiing on the night lanes. We were worried about the availability of a cinema, restaurants, sports shops here. The city is strewn with souvenir, grocery shops.

Suffice it to say "Boarderspark Giggijoch" (under 17 seats in Giggijoch). This is a fan park with rails, springboards, fan-boxes and half-pipes. A fairy tale for snowboarders.

Be careful, since snowmobiles (machines making skating tracks) can appear suddenly. Trails are put in order several times a day. Fortunately, these machines are signaling and squeaking.

We advise you to use, especially in the summer, the Otzal Card (its cost is about 47 € for 7 days). The payment includes a trip to the swimming pools, museums, discounts on equipment rental, transport (local) and lifts throughout the region.

At 12 km from Sölden built "Aquad" - a spa with thermal pools right on the street. There is also a German sauna, climbing wall, shops, restaurants, a 4-star hotel.

"Snowy days" in Sölden

Snow in Sölden is always: "worried" about this two glaciers Rettenbach and Tiefenbach. This is a place for impatient people who want to quickly get on the ski track. Since October, the upper tracks are pleased with the snow cover. Season of skiing here runs from December to the beginning (sometimes until the middle) of April.

In March, we do not recommend visiting the resort: snow is replaced by rain, the sun is cloudy, you can ride in puddles. Let's just say, from 6 days 2 days for skating will be yours. With the help of modern technologies, snow can be made artificially, which is what happens in Sölden. This process captures an area of ​​100 km, which is 69% of the total area for skiing. In any weather, snow will be provided.

Often already in November, and even earlier, there are no vacant seats there. Think out plans for the holidays in advance and book a room. After all, one of the main moments on vacation - peace of mind for the livability of life.
