Lech, Austria

Lech is Austria's premier ski resort, situated within the World famous Arlberg ski area. It has a wide selection of fine accommodation to choose from and the hospitality shown by the hoteliers and chalet staff here is second to none.

Linked to St Anton, Warth and Zurs in the Arlberg ski area, Lech is Austria's answer to glitz and glamour and an excellent choice for a luxury family ski holiday. There is a lively après ski scene and some rather upmarket independent restaurants and shops (you should check out the 5 floors of glamour that make up the Strolz ski emporium). There is a free ski bus service that runs to St Anton for visitors who would like to sample the world-famous apres ski bars on the other side of the Flexen mountain pass.

Lech is a fair sized, prestigious and picturesque Alpine village with a largely intermediate piste network. For experts the off piste is the main attraction and for beginners there are lots of good, easy slopes in Lech. The mountains are high the snow record is excellent, and although there are still a few slow, old lifts the area overall is fantastic.
