Lech

Ski resorts in Austria
What do Robbie Williams, Princess Dianna (when she was alive) and the Dutch Royal Family have in common? They all love de Lech in Austria. Lech is a wonderful and exclusive ski resort with almost guaranteed good snow conditions and sunny days. An upside is that Lech is part of the enormous Arlberg ski region, which also includes St. Anton and Züch, and where skiing is absolutely top class.

The region has four lift systems with 97 lifts in total. There is a gondola lift that takes you all the way up to the Rutikopf mountain with an elevation of 2,362 meters above sea level. Generally speaking, the pistes at Lech are nice and wide and make for comfortable skiing. If you are after a bigger challenge, then neighboring Zürs offers skiing through narrow and steep terrain. Don’t leave Lech however, if you want to try really sick off-piste skiing and exciting snow parks!
Lech belong to Ski Arlberg.
