Skiing in Solden

Country: Austria

In a nutshell: High altitude skiing, excellent snow, long runs and some seriously lively apres-ski

We like:

  • The two large glaciers and high altitude means you’re practically guaranteed good snow
  • There is a huge vertical drop, and as a result the runs are big, long and great fun to ski
  • Solden has some of the liveliest apres ski in the Alps – it’s a real party town
  • The modern and efficient lift network makes getting around the mountain quick and easy
  • The views from the top are spectacular

We don’t like:

  • The  town is unremarkable and lacks any real centre. 
  • There aren’t many runs in the trees, so skiing is limited when the weather closes in
  • The supposedly easy blue runs are fairly steep, so it’s not great for beginners or timid intermediates

RESORT DESCRIPTION

Solden is a sprawling town in the Oetz valley, a short drive from popular Obergurgl. Solden is less well know with Brits, but was recently thrown into the limelight when Spectre, the James Bond film was filmed here, in the stunning glass mountain-restaurant.

If you like both your apres and mountains on the wild side, it really is a must-visit place. The apres-ski is absolutely pumping, starting early in the huts on the mountain and finishing in town long past a sensible bedtime.

The mountains are equally wild, and athletic intermediates and advanced skiers will love it. The mountains rise up over 2,000m from the town centre and offer big, wide and very long runs – some of the runs on the Gaislachkogel have a vertical drop of almost 1000m with a single lift ride. It’s possible to ski the 2000m vertical drop from the top of the glacier to town in a single, epic run. Legs of steel are needed and stopping off for a schaps in one of the many apres huts on the way down is optional.

Intermediates will love the excellent snow quality and great cruising runs on both of the glaciers, and there are some excellent runs for building confidence on Gigijoch. A lot of the runs are on the steep side, and there are limited options for beginners, so it’s not a great resort to learn to ski at.

The town is functional and does its job, but isn’t the prettiest. Restaurants, shops, and a lot of bars are dotted along the main road which runs along the valley. It can get rowdy at night, but for skiers who want to ski Solden’s big mountain and have some peace and quiet at night can stay at Hochsolden, which is perched above the town on the mountain
