Sölden is a very popular ski resort. It is well-known known as one of Europe’s top ski and snowboard destinations: Three ski mountains beyond 3000 meters altitude, two glacier ski areas and 145 slope kilometers for beginners and advanced skiers. The glacier ski season starts in October while the winter ski resort opens for skiing in November.
Sölden is in the Ötztal valley of Tyrol – one of Austria’s most outstanding valleys. The main village Sölden is at an elevation of 1,368 m (4,488 ft) above sea level. Its three surrounding small villages Hochsölden, Zweiselstein, and Vent offer full force of winter.
Höchsölden (2090 m) nestles high above Sölden and stands for doorstep skiing in endless sunshine. Zweiselstein (1,470 m) is a traditional tyrolean village where you find old wooden houses deeply rooted in the Öztal valley’s history. Vent (1,900 m) has only 150 inhabitants. It is just right for families enjoying unlimited skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing, Nordic skiing and winter walking along the most scenic trails.
