Hochsölden is about as snow sure as ski resorts in the Alps get. Hochsölden is located at 2090m and is ski lift and ski piste linked to the twin Sölden glaciers of Rettenbach and Tiefenbach. Even for those on a leisurely breakfast, the epic Sölden ski area is all theirs until the masses arrive from the valley.
The resort is entirely ski-in, ski-out and features some high-end accommodation. Hochsölden is located in the heart of one of the top ski areas in the region and for those needing après ski or resort amenities, Sölden is located in the valley below and is linked by mountain road, lift and ski piste.

Hochsölden is located in the middle of the excellent Sölden ski region. The Sölden ski area has a vertical approaching 2km and is an extensive and varied ski area that reaches the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers, at over 3200m. Being ski-in, ski-out, Hochsölden offers the early birds free-reign in this superb ski area. As the masses in Sölden wait for the lifts to start rolling, those staying in Hochsölden can fan across the ski area on untouched pistes. From Hochsölden it is 1 ski piste and 1 ski lift to get to the mid-station at Giggijoch, the hub of the skiing on the northern mountain area of the Sölden ski region.
From the Giggijoch hub, it is possible to ski over to the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers for some superb high altitude, wide ski pistes. And from the Rettenbach glacier a ski piste runs back to Sölden and links into the Gaislachkogl ski region, the southern section of the Sölden ski area. The Sölden ski area pretty much has something for everyone, with Hochsölden offering great access to the skiing resources and some of the best steep ski pistes in the area. At resort level in Sölden the skiing is tree-lined, whilst the area around Hochsölden it is open with views down toward Obergurgl or toward the Innsbruck valley.
Stunning architecture hanging on the rocks at 3000m+. Fine dining and accessible by foot on the gondola from Sölden.
Sölden (in the valley below Hochsölden) is one of the powerhouses of après ski, with excess on and off the mountain.
The first race of the calendar is a great event with spectacular racing on the glacier and a mega post-race party in Sölden.
Hochsölden is totally ski-in, ski-out ski resort located at 2090m. There are a number of big hotels along the ski pistes. The views are spectacular and the access to the Sölden skiing is unmatched, with empty, untouched pistes on offer in the early morning. There are a number of terrace bars and huts in the Hochsölden area that offer great spots to watch the sun drift behind the peaks.
Outside of the hotels there is little in the way of shops or entertainment in Hochsölden – it is very much a hotel-based resort. There is ski hire on offer in Hochsölden and for those looking for some of the best après ski in the Alps, Sölden down in the valley is a big draw. Taxis are on-hand to return guests back along the 4 mile Hochsölden Strasse to the resort.
Just a quick note to thank you for making arrangements for us all. Needless to say we had a fabulous few days in Sölden and everything went like clockwork. Superb job as usual.
