Soll

Overview

Soll is a small pretty traditional village with a baroque church at its centre, but most of the accommodation is either a bus ride or a good walk away from the slopes. It is part of the SkiWelt circuit and has the largest terrain within Austria but the appeal of this will lie mainly with intermediates as there is not enough to challenge experts and the low location of the Nursery slopes doesn’t make it great for beginners. However the resort has installed extensive snow making facilities to try & overcome its poor snow record and the off piste available goes towards compensating advanced skiers that might try the area. With mainly gondolas & chairlifts it is a good place to give a boarding a try with but again those more confident maybe better elsewhere as they won’t find much to challenge them here.

Positive

  • Located within the largest austrian ski area
  • Pretty village with good apres ski
  • Good snow making facilities
  • Good value accommodation

Negative

  • Long trek to access lifts
  • Low altitude and unreliable snow
  • Busy slopes in high season
  • Lack of challenging slopes

Offslope/apres ski

The village caters well for those looking for something to do away from the slopes with trips available to Salzburg, Innsbruck and Italy. The ‘Panoramabad’ in town has a swimming pool & sauna and from the top of the gondola there is the chance to have a go at tobogganing. Restaurants are varied and you will always manage to find live music in one of the lively Soll bars.
