Lech am ArlbergAustria

Ski on the perfect powder of Austria’s most revered ski slopes and join the après-ski festivities at this Alpine destination, popular with royals and celebrities.

Ski pristine slopes in style at Lech am Arlberg, a mountain range and ski resort in Vorarlberg, Austria. Lech is reputed to be one of the world’s best ski destinations and was the birthplace of today’s techniques in Alpine skiing. Visit Lech am Arlberg to experience excellent ski slopes, see magnificent views of the mountain ranges and find out why this resort is the playground of the rich and famous.

Explore the mountain village to find the glamorous shopping and dining areas. If you didn’t bring your own ski gear, purchase or rent it from one of the equipment shops here. Lech offers a range of shopping opportunities, from upscale boutiques to department stores.

The mountain offers terrain for skiers of all abilities, including challenging off-piste areas for alpine touring. Try Der Weisse Ringe (The White Ring), a ski-racing route that covers 13.6 miles (22 kilometers) of trails through three towns, Lech, Zürs and Zug. Skiing classes are available for beginners to experts.

Head back to the village to unwind with a glass of glühwein, a traditional mulled wine. Sightsee in the village and visit a 14th-century church. Lech village offers a great range of restaurants and cafés, offering traditional Austrian Wiener schnitzel as well as contemporary dishes.

Lech am Arlberg also offers a range of activities in summer, including hiking, canoeing, mountain biking and rock climbing. Trek across the mountain’s peak or explore the fascinating Sea of Stone trail, a hike that crosses a fossilized coral reef.

Reach Lech via coach or car in a few hours from Zürich, Friedrichshafen and Innsbruck airports and Langen train station. The ski season runs from approximately December until April. Only one ski pass is needed for the whole skiing area. The Arlberg-Card provides access to over 90 lifts and 171.5 miles (276 kilometers) of slopes.

With a warm village atmosphere and exceptional ski facilities, Lech am Arlberg is an Alpine destination not to be missed.

I have skied in many different resorts for over 45 years and Lech is still one of my favourite places. Such nice people, great food, pretty town and some great skiing in the surrounding area.
