If you ski Lech, you get an exclusive resort in the Arlberg ski region. With a great snow record, a traditional village, lively après-ski and of course some excellent skiing and snowboarding across the Arlberg ski area.
Ski Lech in Austria's Vorarlberg region and, along with it's close neighbour Zürs, you will find two very exclusive ski resorts that are part of a linked ski area in the Arlberg ski domain - 84 cable cars and lifts and 283 km of piste. With much skiing history, this is a traditional alpine village. Access is via Innsbruck, Friedrichshafen or Zurich - with Innsbruck being the simplest for transfers.
On the slopes
Great for beginners and young children, ski holidays in Lech offer highly rated ski schools and gentle nursery slopes in the centre of the village, while intermediates will find abundant choices right across the ski area. From warming yourself up on the Mohnenfluh mountain with it's cruisy blues through to the tougher pistes on the Rüfikopf there's well groomed pistes awaiting every morning.
So amongst the good intermediate slopes, there's also a wide range of steeper pistes, tree lined runs in Oberlech and long very cruisy blues to warm up or learn on. Expert skiers should look for off-piste challenges, or head over to St Anton. It's said that there's over 180km of off piste runs available to you - who are we to doubt! This is also a great location for boarders, with a park and a half-pipe and lots and lots of powder and off-piste challenges across the ski area. Whatever your level, you'll rarely find queues, due to good lifts and strict mountain limits.
If you ski Lech you are also in the ski region of Arlberg.
Off the slopes
Accommodation in this ski resort is available in every category, but Lech favours the top, exclusive end. After a busy day on the slopes, you'll find plenty of restaurants, open-air snow bars, indoor bars and dancing, and thanks to the tunnel system, Oberlech is a traffic-free zone. This is a great village for real après-ski from the moment you finish your days on the slopes - whether that's 3pm or 5pm! Other activities available include a sports centre, indoor golf, curling, ice-skating, tobogganing, snowshoe walking, and winter walks. Those of a romantic disposition can try sleigh rides, and the children will enjoy feeding high-alpine game.
