Beginners will go for the glacier

In general Sölden is known for its more challenging slopes. Nevertheless there are pistes for amateur skiers as well. Directly above Sölden im Innerwald there are two short t-bar lifts and a “Kinderland”(children's area). You'll reach this area after a short ride with the Standseilbahn gondola starting in Sölden. Other easier slopes can be found in the area of the Giggijoch. Especially the pistes below the Rotkogl are perfectly suitable for beginners because these slopes are very flat and broad. The lifts in the ski resort are not very challenging either since they are very new and modern installations for the most part. At the area around the Giggijoch there are two children's parks which are operated and used by the ski schools. If you still feel a little uneasy on your skies you should definitely try the slopes on the glacier Tiefenbachgletscher. There are practically no other slopes in the entire Alps which are broader than the pistes No. 38 and 39, located just below the Tiefenbachkogl. You could also try the areas around the Rettenbachgletscher or the Gaislachkogl where you can find pistes suited for beginners as well. These slopes however are not for first time skiers though because in order to reach the easier slopes you will need to cross more difficult terrain.
