Ski rental in Soelden
All you may need is here
Dreamy panoramic views, snowy slopes and descents of all difficulty ratings. 34 lifts and 150 km of slopes await you in the Oetztal Valley. It's time for the skiing holiday of your life!
The most beautiful ski resorts in the Oetztal Valley are just a few minutes away from the centre of Soelden. The BIG3-Tour awaits you! Explore three 3,000 m peaks in one day – and enjoy the views over the rooftops of Tyrol three times!
The rally starts out directly in-front of our sports store check-in at the foot of the Giggijoch valley station. From here, you ski via the Rotkogljoch to the Rettenbach Glacier and the first highlight of the rally: the Schwarze Schneide at 3,340 m above sea level. The route then takes you on through the ski tunnel to the Tiefenbach Glacier. From here, it's not far to the Tiefenbachkogl (3,249m). Views of Tyrol's highest mountain, the Wildspitze, are guaranteed! The ascent then leads via the Rettenbachtal valley up the last 3,000 m peak in the tour, the Gaislachkogl at 3,058 m.
This tour can be completed in four hours by good skiers and snowboarders.
Fun on the slopes at all difficulty levels
The slopes on the Giggijoch are ideal for beginners and more advanced skiers. Here you will find most of the 120 blue and red slopes. The 9 km long descent from the Rosskirpl summit station to the Giggijochbahn valley station is one of the longest descents, while the top steep slope on the Rosskirpl is among the steepest pistes in the Oetztal Valley. A good level of physical fitness is required to conquer the 1,391 m height difference for pure skiing pleasure.
Comfort on the glacier
You can enjoy every conceivable comfort here, despite being up in the mountains. The self-service restaurant on the Rettenbach Glacier serves Tyrolean treats as well as international cuisine. Our Sport shop on the glacier also provides ski rentals. Equipment can be handed back or exchanged at any of the other Sport Riml shops.

Check your equipment before you start
- Functional underwear and ski socks transport sweat to the outside and on to the next layer of clothing. This helps prevent the body cooling down.
- If temperatures fall far below freezing, we recommend that you wear a functional shirt or fleece. Always wear multiple layers.
- Ski boots must have a perfect fit, otherwise painful pressure points can develop.
- The ski jacket and ski trousers must be waterproof. A water column from 4000mm onwards is ideal.
- Please ensure that your gloves are warm and waterproof.
- We strongly recommend that you always wear sunglasses! These protect your vision in good and bad weather alike.
- The most important piece of equipment for your skiing holiday: a ski helmet. If you have a car accident at 30 km/h, the airbag will inflate. An accident on the slopes could take place at a speed of up to 50km/h. Hear your body becomes the crumple zone. A ski helmet will protect your head from serious injury.
- Skis and sticks: these need to be chosen in accordance with your height, weight and ability.
