The cross-country skiing area Solda/Sulden (IT)

Skiing around the majestic Ortler Mountain

Overshadowed by the Ortler, the settlement of Solda/Sulden is one of the areas in the Alps blessed with ever-present winter snow. Getting an early start to the winter season enables athletes and competitive runners to prepare in good time, and even the more enthusiastic recreational cross-country skiers can make a head start. In early November, when normal hiking is still ongoing at lower altitudes on the green meadows, woods and fields, Solda/Sulden is already preparing for the winter sports season. At altitudes of between 1,850 m and 1,920 m, the cross-country trails offer breath-taking panoramas and fresh mountain air. Beginners and seasoned sportspersons can choose their routes according to various difficulty-levels.

Not only does the winter season here begin earlier than elsewhere, but it also lasts longer. Solda/Sulden offers numerous cross-country ski-trails throughout the winter season, which usually lasts until mid-April, the end of which is heralded with the appearance of the apple blossoms in the valley below.

An unusual feature of cross-country skiing in Solda/Sulden is that the trails start right in the centre of the village, with its ski rental services also offering specialized equipment for cross-country skiers. Refreshment stops can be found at the end of the valley, at the Cevedale cable car and in the centre of Solda/Sulden (Hartmann wine bar, Payer and many others).
