Trip Details: Ski “New Altitudes” in Sölden, Austria! Ötztal, Austria (in Tirol) is one of the hot spots of the Alps with THREE peaks over 10,000 ft., access to TWO glaciers, great entertainment and incredible nightlife! The town of Sölden is located in the heart of this impressive mountain landscape. Sölden is the place for World Cup skiing and snowboarding in Tirol, and offers a huge range of winter sports – the US Ski Team has chosen Sölden as their official European training base!
The Sölden-Hochsölden-Gaislachkogl sector of the Ötztal Arena Ski Area has over 60 miles of trails connected by a number of high-capacity lifts and long runs, the greatest of which descends for 6 miles over a 5,500 ft. vertical. This however is now even bigger thanks to the lift link to the glaciers meaning that the 30-plus lifts, many of them state-of-the-art gondolas and chairs, link up to around 90 miles of runs, all accessible with the Ötztal Superskipass. Off the mountain, winter activities abound, such as cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, ice skating, curling, toboggan runs, sleigh rides, and a thermal spa.
Sölden is famous for its great après-ski scene. At the end of the day the entire village turns into a party location where those in search of fun and entertainment meet in one of the numerous open air après-ski bars along Sölden's main road. When the day comes to an end, everyone heads for the ultimate restaurants, pubs, and clubs across the village. Nightlife at its finest!We will be staying at the four-star Hotel Tyrolerhof, located in the center of Sölden, only 100 yards from the Giggijoch gondola. The modern rooms all feature cable TV, safe, WiFi, bathroom and hairdryer. The hotel is an oasis of well-being and wellness, featuring an indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, steam bath, spa treatments and fitness center. The on-site restaurant offers Tyrolean Cuisine and international dishes, and guests can enjoy après-ski around the bar’s crackling fire.
