Obergurgl is just a short bus ride to Solden its much busier neighbour.

Whilst Obergurgl undoubtedly wins the competition for combining amazing skiing with chocolate box charm & excellent Apres ski, Solden adds variety and its glacier also ensures exhilarating skiing.

Base level skiing in Solden starts at 1380 metres, rising to over 2000 meters at Hoch Solden. There is usually a GS run up which all skiers can participate in. Pistes are long and wide.

Solden’s 8 nightclubs are just a taxi ride away, allowing you to stay in luxury at The Chalet, at 11º East, and pop over to Solden should you be in need of a more frantic nightlife than Obergurgl!

One of the nice things about holidaying in either Solden or Obergurgl is that providing you ask when you buy your lift pass, you can get a ticket allowing you to use the same pass for between 1-5 days in either resort.

Solden is the official European training base for The United States ski team and hosts every year the FIS World Cup Race. This year the FIS race runs from 26th to 28th October 2012. As in other years, the women’s giant slalom opens the new World Cup season.

To get to Solden from The Chalet, at 11º East Obergurgl, one can take any of the frequent buses – some of which also go to Hochgurgl or a taxi.
