Skiing in Lech - immaculate slopes, wide open runs
With stunning conditions and something to suit everyone, particularly intermediates, Lech is definitely the place to ski and be seen. With ski in and ski out access, Lech has been popular destination for Alpine enthusiasts for over a century for good reason. Steeped in the heritage of Alpine Skiing, with exceptional levels of snowfall and close proximity to the nearby smaller resorts of Warth and Shrocken, a combined ski area is easily accessible that is some 50% larger than the immediate Lech-Zürs terrain. Offering easy direct access to the entire Arlberg region, the modernised Oberlech cable car and the opening of the new Trittkopfbahn and Flexenbahn lifts now better connect the Lech and St. Anton sides of the Arlberg. This makes direct access to all 305km of slopes, and 111 lifts of the region now even easier. This combined with a 1,000m of vertical skiing between 1,450m and 2,450m above sea level and the only region in Austria to offer heli-skiing, puts Lech firmly at the very heart of the Arlberg skiing culture. Lech is also home to the now legendary ‘White Ring’ that goes from Lech to Zürs. This is a spectacular 22km panoramic circuit with a total of 5,439 meters of altitude set amidst the impressive Alpine peaks and created some 60 years ago.
