Famed for her sophistication and elegance, the stunning resort of Lech is an exclusive escapism within the heart of Austria's
largest connected ski area, Arlberg. Tradition and luxury go hand in hand here as you stroll down the pristine main street adorned with intricately detailed & colourful residences, boutique shops & restaurants. Once a farming village, the old age charm has been preserved in every detail which further adds to the warm community feel of this resort. Incredibly chic but not at all pretentious.
But once out in the mountains, this timeless grace, genteel nature and elegance are but a distant memory. Board the gondola to transport you up into the
towering heights beyond, unfolding as you go, the promise of some of Europe's most challenging off-piste terrain ahead. High altitude, thus a great snow sure area with a longer than usual ski season, the Arlberg ski area consists of neighbouring Zürs along with St Anton 'over the top'. Don't forget to make a stop off in the small village of St Christoph where you will find one of Europe's best lunchtime spots, Hospiz Alm, and a huge variety of slopes for all levels of skier. For nursery slopes and the more nervous skiers, we suggest staying close to the area around Lech where gentle, cruising uncrowded pistes can be found. For the adrenaline junkies & powder hounds, make your way over to St Anton and take on the longest off-piste lift connected on ski route - taking in the infamous Valluga summit.
Zürs is just 4 km's away from Lech and can be reached by car and also ski lifts and pistes. The famous White Ring includes Lec, Zurs, Zug and Oberlech. Zürs is now almost exclusively a hotel village and the first ski lift in Austria was built here in 1937.
