Ski holidays in Lech

Tremendous, picturesque and snow-sure skiing in three top resorts

Ski in Lech and you'll enjoy one of Austria's most exclusive resorts, dominated by a lovely 14th century church and river, high up in the Arlberg valley next to the tiny hamlet of Zürs, surrounded by stunning peaks.

The cableway link between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz closes the loop with St. Anton and St. Christoph and creates complete ski convenience for skiers giving access to 304km interconnected pistes on the extensive Arlberg ski pass.

Skiing holidays in Lech give you easily accessible slopes and good intermediate skiers can enjoy the famous White Ring circuit that links the two resorts. Wonderfully picturesque runs link the resort to scenic Oberlech. The extensive Arlberg ski-pass also covers the neighbouring resorts of Stuben, St.Christoph, St. Anton and Sonnenkopf, although there is more than enough skiing for even the best skiers in Zürs and Lech alone. In addition, off-piste opportunities are numerous and these are the only resorts in Austria that offer heli-skiing. Skiing at Lech also provides sophisticated après-ski, including some outdoor ice bars serving champagne. Non-skiers can browse exclusive boutiques, enjoy the extensive walking trails in the valley or take a horse-drawn sleigh ride from the picturesque village into the romantic Zug Valley.

Advanced skiing in Lech

An experienced skiers' dream with probably the best, most challenging off-piste skiing in Austria, as well as some Superb black runs.

Snowboarding in Lech

The wide open slopes are ideal for snowboarding. There is a boarders’ funpark under the Schlosskopf chairlift in Lech and the Salober snowpark in Warth.

 

Our favourite run

'It's hard to pick one run in the massive Arlberg area, but apart from some lovely scenic runs above and through Oberlech, my favourite is probably the red run from the top of the Schindler Spitze down to St Christoph, which has a great snow record.' (Neil Lodge, Product Manager Austria)
