Lech is a wonderfully atmospheric village and provides a great diversity of slopes for all grades of skier and boarder, but with more focus to the beginner and intermediate skier than it's party neighbour St Anton offers. It is a chocolate-box Alpine village, awash with high quality hotels, luxury ski chalets and restaurants. With access to the neighbouring resorts of Zürs and St Anton, Lech makes up a part of one of the world's best ski domains.
Although many luxury ski chalets remain, some old traditional chalets that have been renovated into luxurious hotels and restaurants are set on either side of the river that winds through the centre of the resort, past a stunning central church. Lech regulars tend to be rich, famous and/or royal yet the resort remains refreshingly unpretentious. Oberlech is a tiny cluster of hotels above Lech accessible only by skis or cable car which runs until 1am daily.
Ski Arlberg offers you uniquely enjoyable skiing with a total of 94 cable cars and lifts connecting the resort and luxury chalets to 340 km of pistes and 180 km of high Alpine deep powder snow runs.
Winter in Lech Zürs am Arlberg offers numerous cultural and culinary highlights for those who are interested in culture and cuisine. Well-stocked sun terraces and cosy huts and "Alps" invite you to stop a while. The connoisseurs amongst Arlberg's winter guests will want to take advantage of the reduced price Sonnenabo ticket for travelling up the mountain and back down into the valley. This way you can easily reach the high-altitude cross-country ski trail and winter hiking trails or just simply enjoy the wonderful view and excellent mountain restaurants.
