Learn to ski
The slope is your classroomWe'd like to clear up one cliché right away: No, here in Sölden nobody is born already with skis on and can carve down the World Cup slope of Rettenbach glacier at the age of 3. We Ötztal locals also must learn to ski first! Thanks to perfect mountain lift infrastructures, many beginner-friendly slopes and - of course – the professional local ski schools, starting or even returning is fairly easy. Here you will find out everything you need to know if you want to learn how to ski in Sölden.
Who can learn to ski?
Which type of ski courses are there?
Kid's ski courses
From the age of 3, kids can take part in children's ski courses at the local ski schools in Sölden. In the practicing area or on the practice course, the youngest skiers get in touch with snow in a playful way and thanks to fun-filled exercises they learn the first plow turns before they continue on the easy and child-friendly slopes. A children's ski course usually lasts 6 days and includes a morning and/or afternoon unit. Many ski schools also offer lunchtime supervision including a kids’ lunch menu. The very young children (from 10 months) are in good hands at the ski school kindergartens, while the parents can enjoy a few downhill runs on their own.
