Nearly 2km of vertical, legendary après ski & a 3250m snow guarantee.

Snowflake

The biggest ski resort and ski area in the region, Sölden (of 007 fame) is superb both on and off the slopes. The skiing reaches to over 3200m on the twin Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers, there is ski-in / ski-out access at Hochsölden and the facilities on the mountain above Sölden are superb. For groups looking for après ski action, few can compete with Sölden, Austria!

The IceQ restaurant towers above Sölden and represents the new vision for Sölden, with stunning architecture, housing fine dining and the highest wine cellar in Austria. Across the mountains there is so much on offer for corporate ski trip attendees, such as music events, extensive & mixed ski terrain, thumping après ski and incredible spas.

SÖLDEN SKIING

3 distinct (linked) ski areas make up the Sölden ski region. The Giggijoch area located on the western side of the resort, at the northern end of Sölden is accessed by a modern gondola and has a large section at the top of the Giggijoch gondola with wide open, gentle slopes and countless lifts accessing further terrain. This is the embarkation point for the glaciers and the steeper terrain below and above Hochsölden. The Giggijoch ski sector is fantastic for intermediate skiers and snowboarders. At the southern end of Sölden, the second major lift leaves for the Gaislachkogel peak, again another high capacity and ultra-modern lift that shifts thousands of skiers up to the high-altitude skiing above Sölden. At the top of the Gaislachkogel gondolas is the incredible IceQ restaurant and from here the slopes descending to the south, eventually reaching the lifts accessing the Giggijoch ski sector.

For corporate ski trip planners looking for events outside of the peak season, Sölden really comes into its own with skiing on the Gaislachkogel reaching to around 3000m. Additionally, the twin Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers reach to over 3250m and offer an absolute snow guarantee. They also offer some superb intermediate terrain, exceptional snow quality and several viewing platforms with vertiginous drops and mesmerising vistas. The glaciers are also the starting point for the massive (near) 2km vertical descent back to the resort of Sölden. The skiing on the Rettenbach glacier is steeper than the Tiefenbach glacier, with the Sölden FIS course offering a great, steep race piste, whilst on the Tiefenbach glacier the pistes are incredibly wide and are generally gentle red and blue pistes, ideal for ski carving on fantastic quality snow.

SÖLDEN RESORT

The resort of Sölden stretches along both sides of the valley river from north to south. There are ski lifts leaving the north and south of Sölden as well as a town shuttle funicular that departs from the middle of the resort and accesses the slopes and ski-in / ski-out accommodation of the Wald part of Sölden. Après ski bars, shops, restaurants and hotels line the main street in Sölden and the resort is full of life throughout the winter. Off the main street, the atmosphere is quieter, with hotels and the main Sölden leisure complex.

Ski groups needing immediate access to the slopes should head to the fully ski-in / ski-out satellite resort of Hochsölden, some 700m above Sölden and located right in the heart of the Giggijoch ski sector. An alternative would be the Wald area of Sölden which has closer access to the main resort. As well as its famous après ski, Sölden also has some excellent hotels and restaurants for groups looking for quality off the snow.

SÖLDEN APRÈS SKI

One of the big-hitters of world après ski, there are few places that can match the vibrancy of the main street in Sölden during high season. Après ski often starts on the mountain with the glacier ski-out passing numerous watering holes in the steep valley. In Wald, just above Sölden, Après Ski Philipp is a no-nonsense après ski bar that is frequently bursting with revellers. The Giggijoch terminus often hosts large events and is popular with those indulging with the intention to download on the gondola. Skiers and boarders can leave the Giggijoch area and rest-up for a while in the remote après ski venues below Hochsölden, on the piste back to Sölden.

In the resort, the après ski bars are strategically placed around the lift stations and the end of the ski pistes. GIGGI Tenne, Kuckuck and Fire & Ice all ‘tractor-beam’ the weak-willed arrivals to the Giggijoch base station, into their venues, whilst the Black & Orange Rockbar shovels up those spilling out of Après Ski Philipp. Wherever you arrive on the main Sölden street, there are après ski temptations galore. The après ski mayhem in Sölden is easily avoidable and chic bars and excellent restaurants are easily reached.

SÖLDEN MEETINGS & SEMINARS

Fine dining, impressive modern hotels / meeting facilities and great action on and off the snow, make Sölden a stand-out destination for corporate ski meetings & seminar events. There are a number of conference suites in local hotels but the AquaDome, located to the north of Sölden, offers something really special with a superb location from which to combine formal meeting schedules with break-outs in one of the best spa complexes in the Alps. The dedicated seminar facilities are excellent and the location and spa facilities exceptional.

The IceQ restaurant at the top of the Gaislachkogel peak is another special venue. The restaurant can be booked for evening events and offers a spectacular location and architectural design to round-off a day of meetings. The Ice Q also hosts the highest wine cellar in Austria at over 3000m altitude. Activities off the snow are excellent with ice driving, paragliding and music festivals offering fantastic entertainment during corporate ski trips.
