From novice winter sport fans to slope kilometer aficionados who won't stop skiing until all lifts are closed: those who like it sporty, high Alpine and sunny above the tree line have found their winter paradise in Sölden. The 144 km of ski runs extend over several mountains in the west of Sölden and are perfectly groomed every day in all their length and width.
Beginners and upcoming carvers feel comfortable in the practicing area of Innerwald, on the wide slopes of Giggijoch and the inviting ski highways on the glacier. Talking about full speed carving: among advanced skiers the challenging runs down from Gaislachkogl peak and the really steep Ski World Cup slope are considered a challenge with a high fun factor.
The highlight for the enduring ones is the BIG 3 Rally leading to fabulous viewing platforms on 3 ski mountains higher than 3000 meters - burning thighs are rewarded with terrific views. Free-skiers can work on their tricks in the Snow Park at Giggijoch. As well for off-piste fans there is plenty of variety: freeriders for example, prefer the challenging deep powder slopes at Gaislachkogl peak.
- The longest downhill ski run leads from the BIG3 platform of Schwarze Schneide (3340 m) to the base station of Gaislachkogl mountain gondola (1370 m). Difference in altitude: 1970 m | Length: approx. 15 km
- The steepest slope is the Alpine Ski World Cup slope on Rettenbach Glacier: piste no. 31
- The best vantage point can be found at the BIG3 platform on Gaislachkogl (3048 m): right at the top station of Gaislachkogl mountain gondola, on the roof of the spectacular ice Q gourmet restaurant.
