Solden is a bit overrated in my opinion. It lacks the charm of a skiresort like Saalbach or Kirchberg where you can watch the skiers from downtown. Furthermore the ski area is not well interconnected. Besides the Giggijoch the slopes are a bit narrow. There are some challeging slopes but it does not offer the excitemant of Sankt Anton or Chamonix. It is not really suitable for beginners either. It is basically a medium sized ski area for intermediate ski die hards. It is nice to have the challenging glaciars, the wide slopes on the Giggijoch and some challenging slopes towards the town. The best aspect is the apres ski scene. Las few years it is going downhill 'cos of the Russians.
