Freeriding in Sölden
Pamper yourself in powder snow during your winter vacation.

Even when Freeriding in Sölden has ceased to be an ‘insider tip’ for some time now, there are still some 70 downhill kilometres of perfect runs over free terrain and ‘ultra’-wide ‘pistes’ available in untouched powder snow, where you can perform your perfect runs, without having to cross the tracks of others – over high Alpine ground and two glacier skiing arenas, going up to 3,400 metres of altitude, from November through to May. Our tips for beginners and for those warming up, start off your Freeride from ‘Hainbachjoch’ in Sölden, or from ‘Giggijoch’, where broad ‘pistes’ enable expansive curves to be performed in ‘fairy-tale’ powder snow conditions. Once you have ‘warmed-up’, you can negotiate the steep slopes below the ‘Gaislachkogelbahn’ cableway. And, if required accompanied by an experienced Freeride Guide. Freeriding in Sölden means downhill runs of up to 2,000 metre altitude differences, and breath-taking rides, straight off the ‘piste’.

We call it ‘flying’. Hovering over first-class powder snow – that’s Freeriding in Sölden. Experience it now over stretches of 70 kilometres. And, direct entrances too, off the official ski runs!

Freeriding and Sölden
The Original Type of Winter Sport.

Before the ‘pistes’ were created, everyone skied in powder snow. Nevertheless, the term ‘freeriding’ has only been used for a relatively shorter period of time in the ski community. In the Ötztal, ‘freeriding’ has been the most effective method of getting anywhere for uncountable years, in the deep snows of winter. And, it has been one of the most spectacular. The Sölden Ski Arena addresses this awareness even today - and has reserved whole mountain slopes and exciting terrains for freeriders and ‘powder acrobats’. There exist innumerable freeride piste kilometers, which are reachable after only 100 meters of pathway on foot. Provided of course, that you stopover in Hotel***Star The Bäckelar Wirt.
