Rettenbach glacier

The Rettenbach glacier is a glacier located near Sölden, in the Ötztal Alps of Austria. During the winter the glacier is accessible by cable car and from spring time by car, using the Gletscherstraße.

During autumn, usually in October, the 'FIS Ski world cup' is opened with the first competition of the season on the glacier.

The glacier is also an attractive area for regular skiers and plays an important role in connecting the main ski area of Sölden with the Tiefenbach glacier.
