Snow-sure skiing - 01/04/2019
Overall

I have just returned from a fantastic week in Solden. Solden town is split-level and is spread over a large area with the 2 main gondolas at each end. The main bars and restaurants are situated near the gondolas so everything is well located. There are regular buses that run up and down the main street allowing quick access between both gondolas and to neighboring towns and ski areas. I would definitely recommend taking the bus (15 minutes’ drive) for a ski-away-day to Obergurgl & Horchgugrl (which is included with lift passes for 3 days or more). Make sure that you have a few drinks at the Nederhutte apres bar in Obergurgl before getting the bus back to Solden. The ski area in Solden is mainly suited to intermediate and advanced skiers as there are many red runs and ‘extreme’ blue runs. If you are a regular skier or snowboarder, you will love Solden - the ski area is really varied with lots of high altitude ski areas and snow-sure slopes. The snow was still great at the end of March! I would love to go back and hire an off-piste guide as the ski area is extremely extensive. The ski area is suited well to snowboarders with barely any flats so you won’t have to unstrap when you don’t need to. The facilities and restaurants are all fantastic, Solden has heavily invested in the infrastructure so many of the lifts are fast and there are plenty of bathroom stops and rest areas around the mountain! My top recommendation would be to go for a drink in the IceQ bar at the top of the Gaislachkogl lift station as this is where they filmed the latest James Bond film Spectre. There are incredible views from the bar and the perfect spot for a great photo. If you haven’t done a ski holiday in Austria before, Solden is the perfect choice for your first try!

Solden Rocks - 01/10/2014
Overall

Just got back from Solden and absolutely loved it. We were a bit concerned about the amount of skiing to start with as the area is stated as having 150km of piste. We Normally ski in areas with a minimum of 300km but if I did not know the size of the area then I would never have guessed. There are 3 main peaks and 2 glaciers and once you are right in the thick of it all the area seem huge. Everyone in our party opted to pay the extra 10 Euros for the upgrade on teh lift pass to get a days skiing in Obergurgl and it was well worth it. It opened up an extra 100km of piste and was well worth visiting for a ski away day as it only takes 15 mins on the free local bus. Definitely worth doing to break the week up. Another top tip is to check out the Solden Aqua dome. It is not actually in Solden (technically it is in the little village next door) but it is amazing. The spa facilities are some of the best that I have ever experienced and it is open late so you can go after skiing and sit in the thermal pools surrounded by snow under a star light sky. The nightlife is Solden was fantastic, loads of bars and late night venues to choose from. Cooke bar at the bottom of the Gigi gondola was always lively for an apres ski drink. I definitely would not hesitate to go back to Solden.
