The Solden ski area in Austria is a large popular sprawling resort that attracts the party crowd, mainly Dutch and German. As it has loads of bars, après ski is lively and it rates extremely well with those seeking a great nightlife. But despite this, the snow is excellent and the lift infrastructure is being continually developed to ensure skiers get to the top of the runs quickly.
On the slopes beginners will be very satisfied while adventurous intermediates and experts will also find plenty of thrills. There are some lovely tree filled valleys. However, the beginners slopes are at low altitude so they sometimes suffer from insufficient snow. There is sure to be good year round runs on the Rettenbach and Fiefenbach Glaciers.
Those who seek good cross country skiing will enjoy the terrain as will snowboarders.
There are plenty of on-mountain restaurants and cafes. Skidoos and sleigh rides are also available.
Accommodation is sprawling and stretches up the mountain. Being close to Innsbruck gives winter vacationers the opportunity to easily explore further afield.
This is the area (the Otztal Valley) that captured world attention when a preserved 5,300 year old man was found high on the mountain.
Terrain: 40% beginner, 42% intermediate, 18% advanced.
