Solden - Piste Ratings
Dominated by The Big 3 - the peaks named Gaislachkogl (3.058 m), Tiefenbach (3.250 m) and Schwarze Schneide (3.340 m), Sölden offers excellent snow reliability with its access to two glaciers. They tower above the sparkling snow of the lower hills and provide inspiration to the most uninspired skier, not to mention the views of the magnificent mountain ranges of the Tyrol from the tops of these beasts.
There are black runs to be had and plenty of guided off piste to explore, however it will be the intermediates and advanced intermediates that fall in love with the verticals and long runs all over the mountain. Beginners are also catered for with blues and easier gradients lower down the mountain just above the village at Innerwald.
Although the majority of the skiing is above the tree line, when shelter is required there are red and black runs through the trees back down to the village. There are also pistes as long as 12km run from the top of the glaciers to the bottom.
There is a terrain park above Gioggijoch Gondola; with beginner and pro kickers, waves, rails, boxes and the all important chill out zone. Why not take five and admire the skills of all of the other riders, alternatively you can be safe in the knowledge they’ll be watching you!
The lift system here is impressive too with two Gondolas either side of town servicing the mountain and you can easily dodge any interesting looking T-bars or buttons if they’re not quite your thing. Fancy doing something different with your mornings? Why not take advantage of the free shuttle bus that runs between the two gondolas and to the neighbouring villages of Vent and Langenfeld.
The option to venture further afield is there but why you would want to leave the Sölden area we don’t know!
Sölden has a lively atmosphere and a wealth of après ski bars and nighclubs, many with live bands and enthusiastic apres ski dancers. Some to try include; Schirmbar, Grizzly's, Almrausch, Philipps' Eisbar, Fire & Ice, Harley's Rock Bar ... to name but a few.
With nearly 30 to chose from picking one to single out is difficult but the rustic Gampe Thaya just above Rettenbachtal (simple food, table service and a lovely terrace with great views over to Obergurgl) is worth a look. Others of note include Huhnersteign (famous for its chicken), Panorama Alm (just below Hochsolden and "excellent food").
Tavola in the hotel Rosengarten, Dominic, Corso (great for pizza), Cafe Hubertus and Nudeltopf. Traditional Tirolean food can be found at s'Pfandl, above the town at Ausserwald.
