The OLLWEITE LINE starts high up on 2.600 m (you get there via the Langegg chair lift) close to the Rotkogel hut (a great culinary stop). Enjoy the stunning view on the glacier before you circle round the opening lake (photo spot) and the continue for 7km on a winding, rolling ride. There is the challenging rock garden, numerous turns, a lot of northshore wood – well, it's just an amazing, versatile line! 

Before the rock garden you can cross over to the TROALN LINE which brings you to the Giggijoch side – this is the 16 km (!!!) Long Line Rotkogl.

Of you finish the OLLWEITE and then continue on the OHN LINE on the Long Line Rotkogl.

Safety information

You need a good physique and technical riding skills for the 7 km OLLWEITE LINE.

 

The BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN is all about coming together and having the best time on your mountain bike – no matter what your skill level is. So always take care of each other, show respect and support – also towards nature and all other people out there in the mountains and the valley.

 

> Please only ride existing, signposted trails and never trespass open meadows.

-> Avoid skidding, don’t cut switchbacks & leave no trace.

-> Stay alert, never scare animals and always close the pasture gates. In the REPUBLIC there’s always a chance of cattle on the trails and lines. Ride carefully and give them enough room.
