Sölden

Ski resorts in Austria
Sölden is almost the furthest one into the Ötztal valley in Austria. The valley is perhaps best known for naming the iceman Ötzi, but luckily the village is not as ancient as the ice man. Nowadays, Sölden is a relatively modern city and does not have a lot of older buildings and surroundings left. You can tell that the village has progressed since Ötzi's time when looking at the lift system. It has many lifts with impressive capacity and a nice design. The area is cool enough for the world's perhaps most well-known agent, James Bond, to have been there hunting bad guys!

Sölden is said to be one of the snowiest ski resorts in all of Austria and most of the skiing is above the tree line. This means opportunities for really big and long runs in the alpine environment with unbeatable prospects when the weather is nice. The flipside is that when the weather is not as nice, the choices are significantly more limited.
