Clive, our Friendly Ski Chalet Specialist in Solden

Ski Range 1,377m - 3,340m

Sölden is totally unique: unlike other ski areas, it offers not only three mountains over 3,000 metres high but two glaciers as well. No other resort guarantees snow at such dramatic and impressive heights as the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach Glaciers. So it’s no surprise to find that the European World Cup programme tradtionally starts here each October. All of this is set in an area of breathtaking scenery and a short transfer from Innsbruck Airport (1 hour 15 minutes).


Solden Ski School

Our guests couldn't be better placed with the ski school meeting point just five minutes' walk from our Chalet Hotel Hermann at the base of the Innerwald lifts.

Beginners will have their lessons here on these gentle nursery slopes before venturing further up the mountain to the many blue runs.

There is an excellent array of lessons for other grades and also for snowboarders who will also meet here at the start of their day.

NIGHTLIFE & APRES SKI

Along with the super scenery and high altitude skiing, Sölden is also a party resort with a great nightlife: an eclectic range of lively bars and clubs, many with live bands performing to enthusiastic après-ski dancers!

A favourite lunch and après-ski spot on the mountain is the Stabele Schirmbar, renowned for its sun terrace and great burgers. High up on the Giggijoch live bands perform every week, guaranteed to get you in the mood and the resort hosts two Electric Mountain Festivals at the start and end of the season, featuring top DJs.

The famous Philipp Eisbar, just a short walk from Chalet Hotel Hermann, is also worth a visit, right next to the Innerwald area, where the après ski has developed into a fine art.

For a really glamorous and unique dining experience book a table in the modern glass restaurant, the Ice Q, at the summit of Gaislachkogl and indulge in an exclusive dinner whilst enjoying incredible views of the valley below. The uphill gondola departs at 6pm, returning at 10pm. Bookable in advance every Wednesday from late January to early April.

In the heart of the resort the Freizeit Arena sports centre, with swimming pool and ice-rink offers an alternative après ski experience or, for pure relaxation, return to the Hermann to enjoy the Wellness Centre there.

SKIING IN Solden

Ski Range 1,377 – 3,340m

Skiing in Sölden is mainly above the tree line between 2,000–3,340 metres although there are some excellent red and black runs through the trees to the village and one long meandering blue, ideal for less experienced skiers.

The vertical skiing here will take your breath away and hardened skiers will be enthralled by the descents; one being 15 kms (more than nine miles) long with an impressive drop of 1,970 metres. Overall Sölden offers 150 kms of excellent skiing with runs for all abilities.
There are some “real” red runs around the area, some tricky and tough, especially from the Giggijoch to the Rettenbachtal. However, the real highlights are the glaciers and skiers will be mesmerised when entering the “Golden Gate Way” to these two high-altitude glaciers and the amazing ski areas they both offer. Both the glacier areas have a good range of runs so beginners and experts alike can experience the thrill of skiing high above the valley amidst some of Austria’s most spectacular peaks.

For snowboarders Sölden doesn’t disappoint either. as it offers its own dedicated snowboard park in the Giggijoch area with eight kickers of different sizes, and 20 jibs including rails, boxes, wall ride and jib cans. Alternatively the Gaislachkogl area boasts slopes that offer a real blast for boarders.

Ski The Big 3
Sölden’s three ultimate mountain summits are each above 3,000 metres and include the peaks above the two glaciers, the Schwarze Schneide (3,370 metres) above the Rettenbach Glacier, the Tiefenbachkogl (3,250 metres) above the Tiefenbach Glacier, and the Gaislachkogl (3,058 metres). Each of these mountain tops has its own impressive viewing platform offering spectacular 360º panoramas and stunning views of surrounding peaks.
The Tirol’s highest peak-the Wildspitze at 3,776m-can be seen from the breathtaking footbridge next to the top of the Tiefenbach gondola terminal and if you’re a Bond film fan, you cannot miss the fabulous Ice Q restaurant at the summit of Gaislachkogl which features in “Spectre”. The skiing from all 3 peaks is superb, and the challenge for all skiers or boarders is the ‘Big 3 Rally’ with 50 kms of wonderful skiing between the three mountains where experts can push themselves for the ultimate ski experience.
