Situated near Solden at an altitude of nearly 2100m, Hochsolden is a small and exclusive resort that sits high up in the Alps. It is the perfect choice of skiing destination for the more serious skiers and snowboarders out there due to the high amount of top-quality pistes and the lack of raucous nightlife that certainly isn’t enjoyed by everyone.
Budget-friendly holidays to Austria can be found leaving from most major airports in the UK and since the area is so popular with skiers up and down the country, there is bound to be a flight that suits you.

The best time to visit this ski resort is, of course, during peak ski season as there isn’t much else to do here in the quieter months. In good weather, the slopes tend to remain quiet even though good ski weather is the norm, with some of the most snow-sure spots in the whole of the Alps. Right on your doorstep you will find 8km of untouched pistes that head straight down to the main lifts and give access to the rest of the resort.
Beginners visiting Hochsolden are highly recommended to sign up for a ski school here since the ski-in, ski-out runs are tough on those who haven’t had much experience. Intermediates and more advanced skiers will be able to take advantage of these runs with relative ease. The lack of crowds and small lift queues are also huge bonuses for more experienced skiers in the area.
In terms of accommodation options, there are just a few hotels in the resort that are fairly basic in terms of their facilities. However, this doesn’t make much of a difference if you are planning on being out on the slopes all day and then just looking to relax in the evenings, as most skiers visiting this area are. A nice bonus of the hotels here is that they are ski-in, ski-out, meaning you can be on the slope seconds after leaving your hotel. Despite being smaller in size compared to other resorts, Hochsolden still has an impressive selection of restaurants and bars. Skybar is probably the pick of the bunch with its variety of cocktails and stunning views of the surrounding region.
