Freeriding in Sölden

Sölden isn't known for its Freeride program. But because of topographical circumstances you still have the possibility of experiencing some back-country skiing. Areas like around the Giggijoch or the top station Gaislachkogl are very often used by deep powder snow fans. The three thousand meter-high mountains all around Sölden offer interesting and superb opportunities for ski tours. The highlight would be the summit Wildspitze with a height of 3774 meters (12381.9 ft) and therefore the highest mountain in the Ötztal valley. Some ski schools in Sölden even provide special Freeride courses. You will not only improve your skiing technique but you will also get an introduction regarding avalanche awareness and other alpine dangers.
