Our tip

Lech-Zürs off-piste

Freeriding, ski tours & Co

The snow flakes that fall from the sky here are transformed into that wonderful powder snow that freeriders and nature-loving ski-tourers alike long for. The topography of the Arlberg results in 200 kilometers of high-alpine deep snow runs. These can also be reached with the state-of-the-art cable cars. You can decide at any time during your skiing holiday whether you want to go uphill or whether you want to devote the day to pure skiing pleasure.

With all this independence and freedom, it is however advisable to hire an experienced local ski guide if you choose to adventure further. The guide will choose the optimal routes taking into account the weather and snow conditions. Of course you will find such a competent ski guide at the local ski schools - and rest assured, the “real local” will find the best runs with you. Your day will be pure excitement! 

Let's keep this paradise incontaminated

However, Lech-Zürs and all of Arlberg will only remain such an incomparable winter sports pearl if everyone strives together to keep nature intact. It is therefore important to respect the inaccessible protected zones and natural spaces. The flora and fauna need these retreats. Please be respectful & careful.

Thank you!
