One of the most famous ski resorts is Soelden in the Oetztal. The skibus takes you to the resort in about 20 minutes for free. Perfectly groomed slopes and a great slope offering make your skiing day unforgetable for the entire family. Thank to its altitude Soelden guarantees snow from October to May. The glaciers opens in autumn already. Every year the FIS Ski Worldcup marks the start of the season.
In order to get to the glacier you don't even have to take your car. Modern lifts/gondolas called "Golden Gate" take you there right from the center of Soelden. Afterwards you can enjoy ski back to the village (1.400m) from the top of the Rettenbachglacier (3.300 m).
