So what's it like?
Exceptional quality resort, the place to be seen!
Lech and neighbouring Zürs combine well-groomed pistes, deep snow and a fast and modern lift system with top hospitality and beautiful scenery. Both are a must for powder lovers who also like a little luxury. Warm welcomes and incredible skiing are rounded off with a touch of sophisticated class - the towns are known as much for their quality hotels, fine dining and après as for their pristine pistes. Lech and Zürs are part of the Arlberg Ski Circus, so your pass covers 340km of high altitude skiing - including the new direct link to Warth and Schröcken.
Beginners have lots of choice, from nursery slopes to forgiving blues. Intermediates usually head for the famous White Ring, taking in the scenery from Lech to Zürs and back to Lech – but conditions can make it tricky. Black runs are few and far between locally, however there’s an awful lot of off-piste to discover for advanced skiers.
You don't have to ski in Lech and Zürs to enjoy the mountain scenery. There’s 20km of marked cross-country trails and winter footpaths, and the floodlit toboggan run from Oberlech to Lech is guaranteed fun. Foodies will have as much fun off the slopes as on them. Book well in advance for a table at the multi award-winning Griggeler Stuba in Lech or Die Ente in Zürs.
