Tips from Shirley on Sölden-Hochsölden

Sölden is always busy it seems. We didnt go at Christmas or half term to avoid the crowds but even though, the slopes were not empty. However, there was hardly any waiting for the liftswhich made a nice change except for the connection between the Gaislachalm and Giggijoch which always gets very congested. The ski area is quite large, but there are a lot of blue and easy red pistes. If you are an advanced skier, you miss the real red and black runs for a challenge. Off-piste skiing is possible, but the options are fairly limited compared to an area like St. Anton. The slopes are well prepared (even the red descent from the top of the Gaislachkogl). The village has many après-ski options with lots of drinking and groups of men on the prowl. These conditions are not particularly suitable for family ski holidays. There are four supermarkets, so buying food is no problem. There are several nice restaurants on the slopes. For 10 Euros extra you can ski one day in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. Its only a fifteen minute drive and it is highly advisable to go there. Its much quieter and there are some nice black runs. And some nice off-piste skiing too.

We visited Sölden twice this season, once in January and then in spring. We particularly enjoyed the high alpine area, which had well-groomed pistes but also some deep powder and ski touring possibilities. All in all a terrific spot, and the staff and locals are really friendly and accommodating. This will remain one of my favourite ski resorts. Superb!

Sölden is a lively ski area with many slopes above 1800m. The pistes are well-groomed and snow is guaranteed thanks to the snow cannons. Queues are bearable even on bank holidays, and there are plenty of places to stop and relax and enjoy the view. When I was there, the conditions were perfect, with pleasant temperatures and great snow. All in all, we had a lot of fun and I would definitely recommend this ski resort.
