James Bond’s positive effect in Solden ski holiday sales
18th November 2015
Ever since the latest James Bond film “Spectre” went on release on the 26th October enquiry levels for Solden have rocketed here at Ski Line. The ski scenes in the movie were shot here last winter. Of cause the James Bond films have a long tradition of skiing going back to “On her majesties secret service” a film that had a huge impact on our managing director’s career choice.
James Bond and skiing goes back a long way, some of the best Bond films featured action skiing sequences including; For your eyes only, The World is not enough, The spy who loved me and A view to a kill.
Its easy to see why Sam Mendes selected Solden above all the other contenders but we understand one of the key factors was the futuristic Q restaurant which features.
Solden’s Piste 30 was where most of the skiing sequences was filmed and is perhaps why so many wana be Bonds have chosen Solden for this winter’s ski holiday.
Ice Q, cuboid in shape and remarkably distinctive with walls of sheer glass, is one of the main reasons Sölden was chosen as the setting for the film’s mountain scenes.
If you are thinking of following in Bonds ski tracks we recommend staying at the chalet hotel Hermann in Solden, its close to the slopes and exceptional value for money.
