One of Austria’s most exclusive Ski resorts, Lech am Arlberg offers the perfect combination of traditional charm, excellent snowfall and luxurious hotels with fine dining.
Best known for attracting those that adore alpine sports, Lech is one of the most exclusive skiing spots in Austria. This scenic mountain village lies in the stunning Arlberg valley and is known for its excellent snow quality and spacious, uncrowded slopes (limited ski passes are issued to avoid overcrowding).
Lech has its own micro-climate which means it gets more snow than almost anywhere else in Austria and can boast one of the best snow reliability records in the Alps.
Compared to other European resorts, Lech is quite small as a village, but within it you will be spoiled by fine dining, exclusive hotels, friendly people and exciting outdoor activities:

Your special day for powder snow experiences is sure to put a smile on your face! In the heart of this vibrant ski resort, climb into a helicopter and arrive at a lonely summit. From on high, find your own line, plunge into powder snow up to your hips, and propel the powder meters high into the air with every turn. There are few moments in life more joyous!
Lech Zürs is the only ski resort in Austria to offer heliskiing, naturally in compliance with all applicable environmental protection regulations.
The Arlberg features more than 300 kilometres of downhill slopes, 200 kilometres of high-Alpine powder runs and 88 lifts and cable cars, making it the largest connected ski area in Austria and the fifth largest in the world!
A single ski pass is enough to discover the entire ski area. Lech Zürs is known worldwide as the deep snow eldorado and the Snowpark Lech is the perfect alternative in this freeride paradise.
Snow crunches softly underneath your feet as your footprints mark the path you have already taken. Full of concentration, your gaze is focused on what lies ahead: mountains, sun, snow and a picturesque hiking trail that will take you deeper into the magnificent winter landscape.
Explore the snowy landscape around Lech Zürs on specially prepared trails: small paths or groomed winter hiking trails lead over steep mountain slopes, through snowy forests, or along the partially frozen Lech river.
Enjoy off-piste action in the winter paradise of Lech Zürs. Get a little closer to the untouched mountain landscape with the local guides of the area’s various ski schools and dive deep into off-piste fun.
But before you start, a few points should be considered. It is important to know the area well and to enter alpine terrain only with the appropriate experience, information and equipment. It is always recommended to book a local, professional guide for a safe experience.
