Additionally, Sölden’s bike schools offer special basic courses for beginners, afterwards you can dare to tackle the first real lines.

Here is an overview of the Shaped Lines .

Generally, there are no restrictions. The e-bike should ideally be a MTB Fully and, of course, be properly maintained and trail-worthy.

No, as soon as the bike season ends, the trails are no longer maintained and it is not allowed to use them.

In case of cancellation by the organizer, the paid amount will be refunded automatically. This may take a few working days, but will be arranged without being asked. Since the feasibility of the tour depends on the weather situation, the organizer reserves the right to cancel the tour even on the day of the event at the meeting point.

  • Snowfall or snowy roads
  • Heavy wetness or continuous rain on the previous day
  • Expected severe weather situation (storm, wind, thunderstorm)

You ride at your own risk and responsibility. Please do not overestimate your skill level and prepare carefully: download the Mountain Rescue App (Download - App Store | Download - Google Play) and check if you are appropriately insured. In case of an accident, the rescue team can only operate with ropes due to the tough terrain!

Mind: there are passages with no mobile phone reception!

You MUST bring your own repair material (extra tube, tool etc.)!

If the event is canceled by the organizer, the booked place can either be postponed to the next free tour or the fee paid can be refunded at Gaislachkogl gondola's ticket office.
