Following in Bond's ski tracks.
BOND snow scenes are legendary and in the latest 007 film Spectre, our favourite secret agent is back on the white stuff in Austria.
With one of the highest mountain roads in the Alps; a mountain lift station that looks like curved ribs of steel and a design restaurant in the shape of a giant ice cube, the ski resort of Solden in the Otztal valley of Trol, provided a complete mix of everything needed for one of the main action scenes in Spectre.
Solden is renowned for its excellent snow reliability with access to two high glaciers, impressive lift system and lively apres ski. Its consistently good snow conditions, along with over 140km of slopes, makes it one of the Europe's top ski and snowboard destinations.
A range of UK tour operators offer holiday packages to Solden, including Crystal, Ski Total, Snow-Wise, and Ski Solutions.
Crystal Ski Holidays (crystalski.
co.uk; 020 8939 0726) has a week at the fout-star Hotel Erhart in Solden, with prices from PS729 per person, half board, based on two sharing, and including flights from Gatwick and transfers. Prices based on January departures.
Flights are also available at a supplement (from PS30) from Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle, and Stansted.
