Apres Ski: 4/5
Soll is a great resort for anyone looking for a good value, varied ski holiday. The Ski Welt is extensive enough that you can almost ski a different area each day, expert skiers may not be that challenged though. Be aware when exploring - ski buses may be required, as it is quite possible to be stuck on the wrong side of the mountain when the lifts stop. Après ski is fun and varied, with quiet refined bars such as Bella Vista, or the full throttle Whisky Muhle where Jagermeister flows like wine. For ski hire, the chaps at Snow & Fun are really efficient and will look after you with excellent equipment.
