Ötztal, Austria (in Tirol) is definitely one of the hot spots of the Alps with THREE peaks over 3,000 Meters (10,000 FT), great entertainment and incredible nightlife! The town of Sölden is located in the midst of this impressive mountain landscape. Sölden is the place for World Cup skiing and snowboarding in Tirol and provides guests with a huge range of winter sports – the US Ski Team has chosen Solden as their official European training base!
The Sölden-Hochsölden-Gaislachkogl sector of the Ötztal Arena Ski Area has over 100km (60+ miles) of trails connected by a number of high capacity lifts and long runs, the greatest of which descends for 10km (6 miles) over a 1675 metre (5,500 feet) vertical. This however is now even bigger thanks to the lift link to the glaciers meaning that the 30 plus lifts, many of them state-of-the-art gondolas and chairs, links up to around 150km (90 miles) of runs.
Over the years, Sölden has become famous for its great après-ski scene. At 4pm at the latest the entire village turns into a party location. Especially young people and all those in search of fun and entertainment meet in one of the numerous open air après ski bars along Sölden's main road. And when the day comes to an end, everyone is heading for the ultimate pubs and discos spread across the village. Nightlife at its finest!
