Sölden Glacier Festival

From May 1st to 3th Sölden's Glacier was a unique party zone to celebrate the end of the winter season. The program included a great variety of highlights, ski and snowboard tests of the 2009/10 winter equipment, live acts, and a lot of fun. The Waterslide contest was held for the fifth time at Reettenbach Glacier opening the 2009 bathing season. An absolute must was the live concert performed by the German band "Ich + Ich" on Friday on the Rettenbach glacier. The admission to the concert and the glacier stadium was free.
Sölden offers one of Austria's largest glacier areas. In the Rettenbach Glacier and Tiefenbach Glacier you can enjoy 38 kilometres of Ski Runs (25 blue and 13 red) served by 10 Ski lifts (3 gondolas, 2 chair lifts and 5 T-bar lifts).
