Ski Area: Lech Zuers – Austria

Lech Zürs am Arlberg is recognised as one of the pioneers of winter sports. It has been one of the top winter sports destinations in the Alps for over 100 years. This holiday region is one of the most innovative tourism areas ever and is, as such, constantly setting new standards. In Arlberg, tradition and modernity, identity and innovation are harmoniously combined. The local population’s self-image is characterised by a sense of their own identity as well as an openness to the wishes and desires of visitors. Here the motto really is “more time, more space”. So it is no wonder that Lech Zürs is a member of the distinguished circle of the twelve “Best of the Alps”.

With 88 ski lifts, 305 kilometres of ski runs and 200 kilometres of high Alpine deep powder snow runs available, virtually unlimited skiing and snowboarding enjoyment is guaranteed. The region also offers snow well into April. Whether beginner, advanced or top-ranking athlete: Deep powder snow slopes, blue, red and black runs and nursery slopes offer optimal conditions for every level and taste – and the guarantee of snow from November to April. The Ski schools with around 800 professional snowsport instructors organise courses for winter sports novices as well as kings of the pistes. Snowboard aficionados have access to all lifts and cable cars in Lech Zürs, as well as neighbouring resorts, with the Ski Arlberg card.

Thanks to the new Flexenbahn cable way and the newly constructed Trittkopfbahnen I and II, and Albonabahn II, all ski resorts on the Arlberg can be reached on skis. And there is more: with a total of 305 contiguous downhill skiing kilometres and 87 state-of-the-art lifts and cable ways, Ski Arlberg is the largest contiguous skiing area in Austria and hence one of the world’s five largest skiing resorts.

Sun terraces invite skiers to enjoy a spot of après-ski, and indulge in a variety of other activities such as ice skating, curling, ice-carting, tobogganing, cross-country skiing, winter hiking and sleigh rides, all of which are guaranteed to make the winter holiday an experience for the whole family.

One of the highlights of Lech is the shopping. If you don’t want to max out the credit card, the window shopping is also pretty enjoyable!Lech/Zuers
