06.04.2019 - Spring shows its most beautiful side

With the amount of new snow that has fallen in the last few days and the mild temperatures, spring is at its best and skiing is fun once again.

Skiing paired with a few hours of sunshine on the terrace - what more could you ask for :)

New 10-seater gondola lift in Hochsölden 2019/2020

The new gondola lift with barrier-free entrances and exits will take passengers comfortably and safely from Hochsölden to the Giggijoch and back, regardless of the snow conditions. This is great for everyone - especially for non-skiers, beginners and parents with small children, who will find a selection of restaurants and the beginners' area above. In addition, there will continue to be the middle station with exit at the popular restaurant "Sonnblick" with a magnificent panoramic terrace.

The new technical jewel is scheduled to go into operation at the beginning of December 2019.

22.04. - 27.04.2019 Audi Nines in Sölden

Building on the success of last year’s Audi Nines debut in Sölden, the freestyle event series is expanding with an additional location at nearby Obergurgl-Hochgurgl. For the very first time the event will take place simultaneously in not one, but two different resort locations. The new dedicated women’s location promises twice the fun and twice the progression at The Audi Nines in Tyrol, Austria, from the 22nd to the 27th of April 2019.


In 2019 The Audi Nines returns to the core and focuses its attention on a new expansion: a separate all-women’s set up. After reviewing athlete feedback from last year’s event, there was a resounding call to once again create a unique micro-cosmos for women during the weeklong film and photo sessions, providing the right setting to maximise their own progression. This collaborative philosophy is why The Audi Nines is elated to announce dual locations for this event, specifically tailored to the needs and feedback of the athletes. The male athletes are shredding again at the Sölden Glacier. It’s a ladies takeover in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, where female riders, female photographers and, for the first time in event history, a team of female shapers will gather for an exclusive week-long progression session.


The event consists of two public days; a night shoot on the 24th in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl, culminating with all athletes descending on the Sölden setup for the final showdown at contest day on the 27th of April 2019.
