Although a popular summer hiking destination, Sölden is synonymous with snow. Flooded with sunshine at a comfortable altitude of 1,400m, the Austrian village of Sölden is the gateway to a wide selection of ski slopes scattered across the dramatic mountains that surround it. With three peaks over 3,000m, the Sölden ski area enjoys some of the most reliable snow cover and fluffiest powder in Europe. There is ski terrain to suit any level of skier or snowboarder, with a huge range of green, blue, red and black trails, and recently improved lift systems have opened up even more and spread out the crowds, meaning families and not-so-confident skiers will not need to worry about cramped trails. However, it is experts and adventurous skiers who get the best out of Sölden. Its high, exposed peaks are snow beacons that ski addicts can slash out all week long without covering the same track twice, especially around the ski areas of Rettenbach and Tiefenbach that are now linked by cable-car to Sölden.

A decade ago, Sölden had attained a reputation as a hot-spot for partygoers and apres-ski enthusiasts as much as for serious skiers, but the resort has been completely reinvented, through lots of investment in lift technology, extension of ski schools and protection of its historical heritage, as a family-friendly resort. Still, this is a great place to unwind after a day on the slopes, and visitors will find Sölden particularly lively around late October when it plays host to the first slalom World Cup races of the season, bringing the biggest names in ski racing and a wave of excited fans.
