It's no secret that with 142 kilometers of piste (88.2 mi) Sölden is one of the absolute first class skiing regions in all of Tyrol. Especially advanced and expert skiers will get their moneys worth out of this ski resort. The BIG 3-Rallye leads winter sport enthusiasts onto three summits each more than 3000 meters (9842.5 ft) high! Even expert skiers need at least 4 hours to complete this tour. Starting at the Gaislachkogl (3058 m/10032.8 ft) the route leads through the entire ski region on to the Tiefenbachkogl (3309 m/10856.3 ft) and ending at the summit „Innere Schwarze Schneid“ (3370 m/11056.4 ft). On all three summits you have the opportunity to stop and - after a short walk - enjoy the view from look-out platforms. Even if you are in a hurry it is really worth stopping at these look-out platforms and gazing upon the many three thousand meter-high mountains in the Ötztal valley. Among these mountains you can also admire the highest mountain in Tyrol, the Wildspitze with a height of 3774 meters (12381.9 ft). If you are lucky and there is a good long-distance visibility you might even catch a glimpse of the dolomite mountains. The most interesting slopes for expert skiers are No. 1 and 1b at the Gaislachkogl. There are many great possibilities for skiing off-piste as well. In general you could say that the Gaislachkogl is the most challenging mountain in the ski resort and perfectly suited for more experienced skiers. The area around the Giggijoch is more for fast skiers and snowboarders who want to ski a lot of kilometers in only little time. Even runs in the area around the glacier are not as easy as expected. The world cup run at the glacier Rettenbachgletscher challenges even the best of skiers. You should definitely be in good shape when visiting Sölden because at altitudes 3000 meters (9842.5 ft) and higher the air gets noticeably thinner. Due to the unbeatable amount of fantastic slopes and the beautiful panoramic mountain view the ski resort Sölden scores with 9 out of 10 points - a top rating in the category “Advanced Skiers”.
