Speedy tobogganing fun
TOBOGGANING IN SÖLDEN
Romantic ascent. Leisurely stop-off. Relaxing tobogganing fun. The ingredients for a wonderful day of tobogganing in Sölden. There are two very well prepared natural toboggan runs here, around 5 km in length. One for day-time, one for night-time. Very well suited for young and old toboggan fans alike and with plenty of superb sections, exciting bends and surprises. After just one to one and half hours of leisurely climbing you and your toboggan tackle the Stallwiesalm, where there are delicious delights in store – which taste all the better since they are well deserved. In the evening the floodlit facilities are switched on at the toboggan run from the Gaislachalm and from Alpengasthof Silbertal and toboggan fun beneath the stars begins.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING IN THE ÖTZTAL
Cross-country slopes in Ötztal
For skaters and classic skaters
Cross-country skiing combines sportiness and a connection to nature, strengthens your circulation and enhances well-being. It is not for nothing that cross-country skiing is the most popular sport in high northern areas – and in wintry Ötztal it is very popular too. 195 variety-packed kilometres of slopes. Past the Ötztaler Ache, across mountain and valley, for unforgettable impressions of the natural surroundings and a gentle feeling of freedom. Use of the optimally prepared and tracked slopes is also free. The expanse of the basin-shaped valley in Längenfeld is also ideally suited to endurance and fitness training on account of its loops. The cross-country centre is conveniently accessible by bus.
