Why choose this resort?

Variety is the order of the day when you lead a school ski trip to snow-sure Sölden and the Ötz Valley. Having an international reputation as one of the finest all-round ski areas in Austria and a lively après-ski scene, Sölden provides skiers and boarders of all abilities with 145km of piste to explore. Ötz provides groups with a more sedate option with just as an impressive choice of skiing to support those seeking to build their confidence at the start of the week. Base your group in the town of Imst, tucked away in the Ötz Valley and enabling easy access to both ski areas. 

On the slopes

Ötz is ideal for beginners to develop their understanding of the basic ski skills on the nursery slopes while the rest of the group explore the remaining 40kms of piste. Intermediates wanting to take on blue and red runs will find a wide choice spread across the ski area, including 13 kms of easy blues and 23kms of red slopes in Ötz alone. 

Sölden then provides a further 146km of skiable terrain, including 70km of beginner and almost 50km of intermediate-level trails. Those looking for the truly challenging ski routes should head for the Gaislachkogl ski mountain. Head for the Rettenbach and Tiefenbach glaciers for even more challenging descents; a favourite with international ski teams. Snowboarders haven’t been left out with the Swatch Snowpark in Sölden, at 2500m, gaining an international reputation and continuously expanding to become one of the leading snowboarding resorts in Europe. 

A ski pass providing 4 days skiing in Ötz, including Kuhtai, and 2 days in Sölden is included
