    Sölden is a top destination for advanced skiers!

    It is no secret that Sölden, with its 144 kilometers of varied slopes, is one of the absolute top ski resorts in Tyrol. Above all, good skiers benefit from this. The Big3 Rally takes winter sports enthusiasts to three peaks in the three-thousand-meter category. Even very good skiers need at least four hours for the rally. Starting with the Gaislachkogel (3058 m), the route leads through the entire ski area to the peak "Schwarze Schneid" (3370 m) and finally to the Tiefenbachkogel (3309 m). Impressive viewing platforms including photo points await you on all three summits. It is worthwhile to pause briefly at these lookout points and let your gaze wander over the many three-thousand-meter peaks of the Ötztal. Among said peaks is also the highest mountain in Tyrol, the Wildspitze, at 3774 meters. With good visibility, you can even see the Dolomites to the south. 

    Probably the most interesting downhill run for experts is certainly piste 1 and 1b on the Gaislachkogl. Here there are also great opportunities for a detour into the terrain. In general, the Gaislachkogl is the most challenging ski mountain in the Sölden ski area. The Giggijoch area, on the other hand, is more for mile-eaters who want to go full throttle. But even a downhill run in the glacier ski area has its challenges. The World Cup downhill run on the Rettenbach glacier presents even the ski pros with a not to be underestimated task every year. You should definitely be in good shape, because at altitudes of up to 3,300 meters the air becomes noticeably thinner. Due to the unbeatable range of slopes and the beautiful panorama, Sölden gets a top rating in the "advanced" category.

    Of course the World Cup downhill at the Rettenbach Glacier, but also the black piste at the ROßKIRPL-lift is a nice challenge besides the many blue runs on the Giggijoch. And before you take the G... Read complete review
