Hochsoelden on offer from Crystal
Tuesday June 21, 2016 - Email this article to a friend

The resort in the Austrian Tirol is added to the Crystal programme for winter 2016/17. NEW

It sits above Soelden at 2,090m and is a small collection of hotels and restaurants with a good position to discover the large glacier ski area.

It is about as snow-sure as it gets and is right on the slopes.

You need to be a reasonable skier or snowboarder as you will need to head down 8km of freshly-groomed piste to join the 145km of slopes in the Soelden ski area.

There are just a few hotels and not much else so this is a resort for those who want to spend a full day on the mountain and then have a quiet evening.

Every hotel is ski-in, ski-out and you will be on the slopes in seconds.
