Lech ski holidays
ARLBERG • AUSTRIA
A firm favourite among celebrities and royalty, Lech quite deservedly holds the reputation as one of the most exclusive and fashionable ski resorts in the world.
At 1450m and with access to the 305km of pistes of the now fully-linked Arlberg ski area, Lech and its neighbours boast more snow than any other part of the Alps. Lech is stunningly pretty with a traditional Alpine atmosphere, a wealth of stylish bars and more award-winning restaurants than any other village in Austria. Famed for its expert skiing and off-piste, it is also a good choice for beginners, with great nursery slopes in Oberlech above the main village.
Intermediates will love the vast amount of red and blue runs, including access to the ‘White Ring’ - a 22km circuit. Off-piste is the order of the day for more advanced skiers. Hire a guide and spend a day over in St Anton for further challenges, or treat yourself to helilifts to more remote spots. The new link to Warth-Schröcken has extended the Arlberg ski area, offering even more to explore!
