Lech is one of Austria’s best known exclusive, International ski resorts. Its local skiing is shared with Zurs and more recently after a new lift was installed the connections to Warth extended the skiing significantly. Lech also forms part of the bigger Arlberg ski area that includes St Anton and St Christoph which are reached via another new lift. The total skiing offers 304km of pistes and a further 200km of ungroomed slopes and patrolled off-piste skiing for which the Arlberg is famous.
The ski range is between 1075m to 2650m, a total of 304km of groomed pistes are available in the full area, while Lech has 180km of pistes.
Lech is an old farming village set on a river that dominates the village centre. Outside of the centre it's less special. Above is the tiny car-free village of Oberlech with its luxury 4* & 5* hotels.
The skiing in and around Lech is suitable for all levels, beginners will enjoy the nursery slopes above the village and the progression slopes are excellent, wide, and gently sloped.
Intermediate skiers and snowboarders will find the slopes flattering and this makes Lech an excellent choice. The huge area will provide more skiing than most could do in a week. For advanced skiers, the off-piste runs will be the biggest attraction, the powder stays longer in Lech than it does in St Anton. Few of the black runs on the Lech side will challenge you, but further afield towards St Anton, the options are endless.
We offer a selection of good ski chalets, tour operator run chalet hotels and some great hotels to suit most budgets.
