"I have a real soft spot for Lech. The stunning, traditional village provides access to an intermediate skier’s paradise and now that it's linked to St Anton, there’s plenty of tougher skiing up for grabs! "

Lech Ski Holidays

Located in the massive Arlberg ski region, Lech provides access to one of the best ski areas in Austria.

Lech is a pretty, traditional Tyrolean town with numerous award winning restaurants, trendy bars, and a reputation for attracting more royalty and celebrity clientele than any other resort in Austria.

The local Lech-Zurs ski area offers a great variety of terrain that will suit everyone with everything from easy nursery slopes in Oberlech just above the village, to intermediate and expert terrain dotted all around the ski area.

The entire Arlberg ski area can now be accessed from Lech thanks to the Flexenbahn lift which was built for Winter 2016/17. This provides easy access to the slopes of neighbouring St Anton which is widely considered a paradise for the more advanced skier or boarder.

On most people's Lech ski bucket list is the legendary 22km 'White Ring' ski circuit between Lech and Zurs. Largely involving blue and red runs, it is accessible to most skiers who classify themselves as intermediate or above. With heli-skiing available, and the new link to St Anton, one visit to Lech is just never going to be enough!
