Solda (Sulden) Ski Area

A unique ski area in a national park

Solda is located amidst the Ortler Mountains in Stelvio (Stilfser Joch) National Park. The ski area offers 44 km of slopes for experienced skiers and other winter sports enthusiasts. A total of fourteen 3,000-metre-plus peaks frame the vast glacier beneath Mount Ortler.

The high Alpine ski area of Solda, which has excellent snow coverage, is open in winter from end of October to the beginning of May. In addition to numerous runs for skiers, including deep-powder slopes for extreme skiers, freeriders and telemark skiers, there is a small fun park with half pipe and boardercross. Solda offers ski tours in the high mountain areas of 3,000-metre-plus peaks well into spring for those who just can’t get enough of Mother Nature.

Despite its popularity, Solda is a place where the old traditions are still very much alive and well. A second home to Reinhold Messner, Messner Mountain Museum Ortles has been located here since 2004.

    Skiing is something that is best learned sooner rather than later. So even pint-sized skiers can practise their carving under the watchful eye of the experienced caregivers of the ski kindergarten at Solda Ski School. A member of the Specialised Children's Ski Schools of South Tyrol, Yeti Club has been awarded the Gold Seal of Approval by the Südtiroler Skischulen (South Tyrolean Ski Schools) association. Criteria for the designation include up-to-date ski lessons, a specially purposed ski kindergarten with playground in the snow, modern lifts, and special learning materials. The mascot Yeti accompanies the children in all of their snow activities, leading them through their day and providing assistance.

    Daily lessons Mon − Fri from 10:00 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. All those hungry little tummies are also well provided for: a morning snack, lunch, fruit, and drinks are served.

    Ploughing through virgin snow or a summit descent through deep snow: these pleasures are the be all and end all for freeriders, backcountry skiers, and snowboarders. At the glacial Solda Ski Area, freeriding enthusiasts will find challenging off-piste runs that are perfectly suited to them. All of the off-piste runs are accessible via the lifts in Solda; short additional ascents are required in between. Most of the free-terrain options are advanced runs.
