Winter in Sölden


Sölden - Pure Skiing Pleasure

Discover the stunning Sölden ski area from the comfort of the Jägerhof



In the last few years, Sölden has developed into one of the leading winter sports resorts in the Alps. Come and spend your winter holiday with guests from all over the world in one of the Tyrol’s most famous ski areas.
Every October, Sölden hosts the Giant Slalom race which traditionally opens the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup season and draws the best skiers on the planet to the heart of the Ötztal Valley for a weekend of high-speed action and non-stop party. 





With state-of-the-art lifts and cable cars, 150 kilometres of perfectly prepared slopes and a huge range of traditional huts and cosy restaurants, it is easy to see why so many guests from across the globe choose to follow in the footsteps of the world’s best ski racers and return to Sölden year after year.
During the winter months, skiing is the ideal way to stay active and improve your co-ordination while at the same time enjoying fresh mountain air and stunning panoramic views of the Alps.

The Alpine landscape which awaits you in the heart of the Ötztal Valley is unique! 


Visitors to Sölden will find the following:

150 km of pistes perfect for all skiing and snowboarding abilities, from easy-going cruisers to adrenaline-fuelled freeriders: wide, sweeping slopes on the Tiefenbach Glacier; steep, challenging terrain on the Rettenbach Glacier; jumps, rails and boxes in the Giggijoch Freestyle Snow park for tricks galore; a race course; a spectacular ski-cross course; and several mogul pistes – plenty on offer for beginners, intermediates and experts alike!
In winter, Sölden is famous for being the only ski area in Austria to offer skiing above 3,000 metres on three different mountains: the Gaislachkogl (3,058 m), the Tiefenbachkogl (3,309 m) and the Schwarze Schneid (3,370 m). Each of these stunning peaks, often referred to as the BIG 3, also offers breathtaking panoramas from purpose-built viewing platforms.



Skiers and boarders with plenty of stamina can take on the challenge of the longest descent in the resort, which starts at an altitude of 3,250 metres and leads all the way down to the centre of Sölden at 1,377 metres above sea level. Thanks to the extensive glacier area and a comprehensive network of snow canons, skiers and boarders are guaranteed excellent conditions well into spring – the ideal time to soak up the sun as you cruise the slopes!

Tired after all that action in the fresh mountain air? Then simply choose from one of more than 20 ski huts and restaurants in the resort for a well-earned rest or a spot of après-ski before the party really gets started in the heart of Sölden and continues well into the early hours!
