Full review

I went to Solden in October for one of their season opening festivals which are full on, ski all day, party all night affairs, with a big fersrtival tent pitched down in the village and new gear ski testing up ion the glacier.

It was a great seasion starter as I felt i was getting my snow fix in early before winter really got going and irt was cool to test out the new gear on the snow while most people were still looking at it in the shops.

Solden is HUGE and there's a real oparty atmopsphere with mostly German guests rolling up in their big cars and partying all night.
