Winter Skiarea


Glacier Ski area


The Sölden ski area ranks among the most renowned ski areas in the Alps. And with good reason, also among the best: thanks to its high Alpine altitude between 1350 and 3340 meters above sea level, two glacier ski mountains and top modern snow-making systems, there is reliable snow from October through May. Highly comfortable mountain lifts open up 144 km of freshly groomed slopes for all ability levels plus challenging variants for freeriders. But that's still not all: truly outstanding mountain gastronomy and unique highlights in the ski area - such as 007 ELEMENTS or BIG 3 Rally - make every single day in the Sölden ski area a very eventful one.
