Winter is fast approaching and the world’s best skiers and snowboarders are getting ready to compete on the highest stages. Tirol is hosting many international events across a variety of disciplines...
It all starts in Sölden
All eyes will be on Sölden’s Rettenbach glacier when the first Alpine World Cup race of the season gets underway from 27-28 October. Sölden has now been the proud opening resort for the FIS Alpine World Cup since 2000, and if it’s good enough for the world’s best racers, it’s good enough for mere mortals. Reliable early snow, a well-groomed glacier and party atmosphere make it the perfect venue to kick-start the World Cup race calendar. Fans flock from all over to catch a glimpse of the world’s best ski racers as they launch their season with a GS race.
The race itself is electric. Fan Clubs are in high spirits and Austrian flags dominate the crowd. The wait is finally over after a long summer without ski racing. Will last year’s overall World Cup winners Mikaela Shiffrin of the USA and Austria’s Marcel Hirscher start the season with a bang? Or will there be a new contender?
To grab yourself a ticket for the first FIS Alpine World Cup race of the season head to Sölden World Cup tickets.
Sölden is a fantastic destination for an early season getaway and after the race weekend has finished the partying continues throughout the winter. Sölden has an epic reputation for both its skiing and nightlife. Whether you love skiing on perfectly-groomed pistes or shredding some powder, Sölden has something for everyone and is snowsure for the majority of the season.
