Glacier skiing in Soelden
Winter sport at the glacier
Our glacier restaurant in Rettenbach is located at the heart of the BIG 3 - the 3 local ski slopes located at over 3,000 m above sea level. It is the ideal place for a refreshment break during your skiing day in Soelden.
With its steep slopes, the Rettenbach Glacier is one of the biggest glacier ski resorts in the Tyrol and as a whole, Soelden is one of the best ski resorts in the Alps. The glacier is a fixed point on the international Ski World Cup scene and the first ski race traditionally takes place here every year, attracting the world's elite skiers.

This glacier ski resort is one of the biggest in Austria at more than 20km² in size. Hardcore racing skiers will find the ultimate fulfilment on the Rettenbach Glacier's 37 km of pistes. The numerous red and black pistes offer plenty of fast descents down into the valley. The World Cup slope too presents a particular challenge even for experienced and confident skiers! The nearby Tiefenbach Glacier offers a more relaxed pace of skiing. Here you will find various blue and red pistes. This glacier area is much flatter with more gentle slopes – ideal for beginners and less experienced skiers. The Rettenbach Glacier is easily accessible from the Tiefenbach Glacier and vice versa via a ski tunnel. This enables you to take full advantage of this diverse ski resort.
The ski season is virtually endless here at the glaciers. Winter sports enthusiasts make their mark on the snow over an 8 month period each year, from October to May. The restaurant at the Rettenbach Glacier is also open during the opening times of the glacier cable car. The self-service restaurant spoils guests with regional cuisine and culinary specialities. After recharging your batteries, it's back onto the slopes – the most important thing of all for any winter sports fan!
