Sölden Challenge

collect badgets and win

The Sölden Challenge confronts you with the task of successfully mastering up to 16 competitions in the ski area. To do so, you have to prove your skiing skills, how to strike a pose, and show your spirit of discovery. Depending on the number of badges you collect, you will earn rewards!

  1. The participation requires initial REGISTRATION with skiline or REGISTRATION for the Sölden Challenge.
     
    It is important that the ski pass number(s) of the ski ticket(s) used are correctly deposited.
  2. Both steps are mandatory in order to participate. The ski pass used for the competitions must be stored in the system by entering the ski pass number, otherwise no allocation to the person can take place. By the way: Existing skiline users only have to enter the ski pass used and register for the "Sölden Challenge" competition. The ski pass of each participant must be scanned separately.
     
  3. Go to the starting point of the individual challenges and follow the information boards that explain the procedure. Then successfully master the challenge.
    The individual challenges are also described in detail at the bottom of the page..

     
  4. After you have collected 6 badges, you will receive an e-mail with a QR code and can use it to redeem the instant win right away. If you collect more than 9 badges, you will automatically be entered into the prize draw.
    Detailed information on the instant prizes and the prize draw at the end of the season can be found below.

From Tiefenbach you return via the Rettenbach Glacier to the valley station of the Gaislachkoglbahn. Up to the third BIG3, the Gaislachkogl (3,048 m).

Do you consider yourself a complete skier? Show it by mastering the 3 race courses: the "mixed race", the "speed course" and between the giant slalom gates.

Badge Mixed RaceBadge Speed RunBadge Riesenslalom

READY - SET - GO

This is how it works:

As soon as your ski pass has been scanned and the start gate opens, the camera and timing are activated. You can watch your race afterwards for free at soelden.com/winterchallenge, download it and share it with friends.

 

MIXED RACE

MIXED RACE combines all the fun on an action-packed course. Here, several alpine disciplines and obstacles are shaken together (not stirred!) and served ice-cold. Slalom poles, steep turns and a cinematic jump await you. So put your back into it! Because your ride will be filmed and your running time will be recorded.

 

SPEED

Can you blow everyone away with your squat? Then show us! In the SPEED competition only one thing counts: speed. So make sure you have the perfect racing squat. A sensor will measure your speed exactly and a speed photo will record your speedy ride.

 

GIANT SLALOM

Do you ride like you're on rails? Then show us! The RIESENSLALOM is great fun for alpine fans. Set up as a parallel competition, you can also prove your skills individually. Either way, each run is filmed individually and all run times are measured separately.
