This isn't the biggest ski area in Austria but it is a very nice one. There is plenty of variety for beginner and intermediate skiers. Experts may be a little disappointed but there are off-piste options. The gondolas from the base to the mid-mountain are...More

What a beautiful place to visit. We enjoyed a walk in the mountains, a great cablecar ride and a marvelous lunch at Kuhtaile Alm. Glorious views.

The slopes are professionally prepared and if you go within off season not crowded. Sufficient number and variety even in spring or autumn accompanied by fantastic views. Worth recommending!

Beautiful ski region, ideal for family with children. The region is not very large and the children can be observed almost all the time while they are learning to ski.

Hochoetz provided a stunning view over the whole town and friends and I were overall very pleased with the whole experience. Solden itself is very special because it's such an eccentric, exciting, busy place during ski season and then transforms itself to a quaint, humble,...More
