Just an hour from Innsbruck, Sölden is a snow-sure high altitude resort that offers year-round skiing and boarding on the Tiefenbach glacier. Great pistes beg to be carved while off-piste is in plentiful supply too. The base lifts at Sölden can have quite long queues first thing. Off the piste, Sölden is well served but expensive, probably due to its proximity to Innsbruck. Plenty to see and do but take lots of cash to Sölden if you want to do it every night!

Visitor Reviews of Sölden

We have been visiting Soelden on and off for over 30 years, with and without our family, and have seen enormous changes over that time. The ski area is huge, and we haven't found very many problems with lift queues once you get up to the Giggijoch ski area. But avoid 9.45 am when the Ski schools go up to the slopes. This year they have a new faster gondola so it should be much quicker, and the Soelden lift company seem to be constantly reinvesting in improvements to the lifts. Snow conditions are now good all through the season as they have super efficient snowmaking machines which cover virtually all the ski area, meaning you can always ski back to the village. Although, at the end of the day, the run down from the Giggijoch gets very busy.
We drive down from the UK; 12 hours from Calais via Luxembourg (cheapest petrol and coffee in West Europe, and free Autobahns throughout Germany). Once in Soelden, parking is free, a great plus for older skiers or families who don't want to take a last run down to the village.
Skiing is extensive, with wide pistes suitable for all standards; a few black runs and many ways to get down the various slopes. Restaurants are plentiful and not too expensive. The village isn't the most picturesque, but we come down to Soelden to ski, not sightsee. Innsbruck is an easy drive away if you want a day off and we now get a 5 days out of 7 ski pass which means we don't have to ski everyday (very useful at the end of January when at least one day is usually bad conditions).
We will continue to return (again, and again!) until our skiing days are over.
