The main gondola in Söll takes you to half way up the mountain to Hochsöll, from here you can go off is many different directions.
The Après ski is very lively in Söll with lots of live music in a lot of the bars. There is plenty of variety of things to do in the evening, the places which recommended are Rosini, Salven Stadl, Buffalo and Whisky Muhle.
For the non skiers visiting Söll there is the local and very well equipped Panoramabad, offering swimming and a sauna and general relaxation. If you make your way to the top of the gondola there is also some tobogganing.
Beginners can start out on the large nursery slope which can be found between the gondola and main road. This is an uncrowded area without the more experienced skiers disturbing you.
