Otztal Valley is one of the largest regions of skiing Austria and is known for its highest mountain resorts in Austria.

The Otztal Valley itself has a unique variety of natural landscapes: flat parts of the valley are replaced by steep gorges with mountain rivers and glacier peaks. Two glaciers and three three-thousandths of a century provide excellent opportunities for a variety of skating. Sölden is considered to be the main resort of the valley and is located at an altitude of 1377 m. The resort has all the necessary facilities for first-class skiing. There are four interconnected skating areas in the resort area. The Tiffenbach Glacier (2796-3250 m), known for its gentle and wide slopes, is more suitable for beginners. His neighbor Rettenbach (2684-3250 m) is a place for experienced athletes. Since October, all the upper tracks are covered with excellent snow.

There are all the necessary conditions for recreation and sports, including a large swimming pool with slides and waterfalls, children's pool, saunas, Jacuzzi, herbal and aromatic baths, solarium, gym, 2 indoor tennis courts, bowling.
