Ski Paradise's Favourite Ski Runs (I): Rettenbach Glacier. Sölden Ski World Cup Racecourse

When people ask us about our experience visiting the best ski resorts in the world, the most repeated questions are: which is your favorite ski resort? And the best slope?

And the answer is always the same, it depends on many factors, the time of year, the snow conditions, the weather, who we are skiing with, or our mood at the time of the visit.

The truth is that we could not choose the name of a single ski resort or slope. So we will start this series by dedicating the first five posts to our favourite slopes on the glaciers of Tirol where we started our 2021-2022 season.

Every year, after a long wait, when the month of October arrives, the Giant Slalom World Cup Races in Sölden remind us that a new winter season is just around the corner.

Since the 2000-2001 season, the yearly Women’s and Men’s Alpine Ski World Opening has taken place on Sölden’s Rettenbach Glacier.
