Soll ist bildschon / Soll is picture perfect

Soll - My first tirolean home (Soll means sun)

facts : 703m of altitude , 3500 inhabitants
Soll is where I spent my first Winter in Tirol, back in december 2001. You can see the majestic Kaiser mountain watching upon the village and guarding its back:))

Soll is one of the villages that compose the biggest interlinked skiing area in Austria called SKIWELT - Wilder Kaiser - Brixental - awarded for best international ski area - winter 2003/04
. It consists of a mountain trapped from all sides with cable cars and lifts and 2 additional skiiing areas located on seperate mountains - Westendorf and Kelchsau ( for those two you need a bus transfer ). 250 km slopes , from which 160km have snow cannons for artificial snow, more than 90 gondolas and lifs...Night riding on Floodlight slope....Tobogganning aswell by night .
see the official website.of Soll village

cons. because it's a low altitude resort, somewhere after the first week of march it gets too hot for the snow to last - especially when the hot local wind called Firn hits the area . you'will be skiing in rivers of water from the middle station down. The area closes around beginning of April

Like comung out of a farytale, this competitions hut all covered with snow is located just on the side of a forest trail above the middle station and on your way ,when you come back from skiing in Scheffau.

    Nice start on your new page. (I know it says Under Construction, but I'm a notorious trespasser on construction sites.)

    I have been to Kitzbuehel, but not Skiwelt, although I have driven by of course. Too many great places to ski in Austria, not enough time unless you're a snowboard instructor? ; - )
