Why skiing and snowboarding in the Sölden ski area is the ultimate pleasure

It's no secret where in the Alps the hearts of skiers and snowboarders beat faster. As the “Heartbeat of the Alps”, Sölden is preferred by ski fans and snowboard enthusiasts from all over the world. The best way for everyone to understand why this is is to go on a local winter holiday. But the numbers and facts alone speak volumes:

You're sure to go to the Sölden ski area - no matter how good you are at skiing or snowboarding

The 144 kilometers of slopes in Sölden offer great variety and the perfect ski terrain for everyone. 69.8 km are blue, 44.8 km red and 27.4 km black pistes, as well as 2 km of ski routes.

Every skiing technique can be used or practiced on these, from snow plowing to proper turns and carving. Red slopes have a medium level of difficulty and a gradient of up to 40%, making them suitable for advanced skiers. Black slopes with a gradient of over 40% are for real experts and require mastery of short turns.

3 slopes with different levels of difficulty as a recommendation

The blue slope No. 38 on the Tiefenbach glacier also opens up the breathtaking world of snow and ice giants for beginners and those returning to skiing. At 3,250 meters above sea level on Tiefenbachkogl, you'll be unbuckling before you've even strapped on your skis or snowboard. Because when you look at the view from the BIG3 panoramic rock walkway, no one stays cold. You shouldn't miss this outstanding high alpine experience! After the joy of reaching the summit, you can head down the mountain on the extremely wide, evenly sloped slope to the valley station. Constantly accompanied by a fantastic panorama.

The red piste No. 11 from Rotkogl is also a wide run with pleasant but steeper terrain. There are a variety of options here: you can practice dynamic springing in your knees on a mogul piste, and you can let the powder dust you on a freeride route. The beautiful view of the valley also calls for repetition - and then we head up the mountain again for the Dacapo.

The black piste No. 14 at Giggijoch/Hainbachjoch is a wonderful challenge that gets your pulse racing. From the Giggijoch mountain station the chairlift takes you up to 2,744 m, where the starting point is below the Hainbachjoch. It's up to you whether you cover the 500 meter difference in altitude on the steep descent quickly or elegantly - although good technique and fitness are required for this little adventure.
