Ski holidays in Lech

 

Lech is one of Austria's top resorts, combining a picturesque village with over 280km of incredible skiing. Lech has one of the best snow records in the Alps; a huge attraction for all skiers. Beginners' slopes are found in all areas, with the main nursery slopes situated in Oberlech, easily reached by lifts from Lech. Intermediates will enjoy the vast amount of terrain and the variety of piste stretching across the whole of the Arlberg ski area. ‘The White Ring' is a popular route, starting at the top of the Rufikopf Cable car, running down from Oberlech to Zurs and back into Lech. For the advanced skier, the extensive off-piste possibilities are second to none.

The attractive village consists of a main street, with a range of exclusive boutique shops, cafes and restaurants. The après-ski in Lech is lively and plentiful. There is easy access to St Anton, by bus, giving you freedom to enjoy all the Arlberg has to offer.
