The beginners area is now easily accessed by the the new Zentrum Shuttle that takes beginners straight to the nursery slopes of Innerwald. Once you have got your confidence together and have perfected your turns beginners can then move on the the gentle slopes at the top of the Giggijoch which will give you a real feel of being up in the mountains rather than just skiing on the slopes close to the village.
There is an abundance of intermediate skiing in Solden with well over 100km of blue and red runs that can be skied.

Those who want to venture further afield can even do a ski away day in Obergurgl which is just a little further up the valley from Solden (a small upgrade is required on your lift pass).
