SOLDEN GLACIER – RETTENBACH & TIEFENBACH GLACIERS
Solden Glacier skiing takes place high above Solden on the glaciers of Rettenbach and Tiefenbach. They are lift linked to the main Solden ski area and are accessed by glacier road out of the main season.

The Solden Rettenbach Glacier hosts the opening FIS race of the calendar each year, whilst the Solden Tiefenbach Glacier has the iconic viewing bridge hanging over precipitous drops with views of the Wildspitze.

SOLDEN GLACIERS – LINKED TO THE SOLDEN SKI AREA
The Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers in Solden are excellent ski areas in themselves but unlike many glacier skiing areas they are also lift linked to non-glacier terrain making for a really interesting variety of skiing and snowboarding. From tree-lined ski pistes to the rugged beauty of the twin Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers, the skiing in Solden is superb and varied. The Rettenbach is the first of the Solden glacier ski areas to be reached by road or ski lift and offers the steeper terrain of the 2, whilst the Rettenbach is connected by ski tunnel and offers wide and gentle ski pistes as well as the famous Rettenbach viewing bridge that extends out toward the Pitztal Glacier and has superb views of the Wildspitze, the highest peak in Tirol. The lift systems on the Solden glaciers of Rettenbach and Tiefenbach are modern with gondolas on both glaciers. There is no accommodation at the Rettenbach or Tiefenbach glaciers, instead visitors mainly stay in the ski holiday resort of Solden, down in the valley. The skiing on the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers runs from late September to early summer.
