Ski-resort Lech am Arlberg

Skiing in a world famous ski area

Winter sports and Arlberg have been inextricably linked for decades. Visitors from all over the world come back regularly to experience this special magic - and they have good reason!  Our ski-resort Lech-Zürs has a major name even under the „big names” of world-wide ski resorts. History has been written here with the first cableway system in the 1930's! 

Ski-area

Lech-Zürs

Exclusivity is still the magic word today, because with the high-tech infrastructure and the “Best of Alps” award, the Arlberg ski area is part of a select group of the twelve best ski resorts in Austria. The Arlberg, with its 305 kilometers of slopes, is the largest interconnected ski area in Austria.

The kilometers of slopes and deep snow runs in Lech-Zürs are considered unique by experienced winter sports enthusiasts - in every respect. And families also love Lech-Zürs. Anyone who has already spent their skiing holiday here with their parents as a child and may even have learned to ski on the Arlberg is usually very happy to return.

Powder dreams and pure paradise 

healthy exercise & entertainment 

Between beginning of December and end of April, the snow-reliable ski-resort Lech-Zürs is the focus for many eclectic winter guests - though without becoming a tourist hot-spot. Departing from the center of town the lifts bring you directly into the skiing and powder snow paradise. And from our 4-Stars-Superior-Hotel Plattenhof you reach the closest ski-lift Hinterwies in a few minutes right behind the hotel. For connoisseurs not to be missed are the deep snow runs in deep winter and the sunny slopes in spring. 

Arlberg is the largest interconnected ski-resort in the Alps and together with our neighbor resorts St. Anton, St. Christoph, Stuben, Warth und Schröcken you have the pleasure to ski over 340 km of slopes, with 94 state-of-the-art cableways & lifts. And all this highly uncomplicated: at our front desk you get the coveted Arlberg-Skipass ticket that opens all doors to this winter paradise!  

Suggestion: "Der Weiße Ring"- The legend of the Arlberg

The White Ring, the Alps' most legendary ski circuit, has linked nature and technology as well as the village of Lech, Zürs, Zug and Oberlech for over 60 years. Attracting winter sports competitors, the „Der Weiße Ring“ is a half-day sporting challenge with approx. 22 km of ski runs and 5,500 metres of ascents and descents. At the same time, it’s also a sightseeing tour on easy and intermediate ski runs with viewing platforms at the Rüfikopf and Madloch (natural platform). All the best while skiing the White Ring!

Highlight: Heliskiing

Heliskiing is the dream of many proficient skiers, which can turn into reality right here in Lech-Zürs. Because Arlberg is the only place in Austria where heli-skiing is still permitted! Book one of the many local guides, they know all nooks & crannies of the ski-area since childhood and can select the best routes even in adverse climate. Fullfill your dream knowing that you are safe and well taken care of because your guide will organize everything else. Catapult yourself into a new sphere of skiing!

Snowboarding
Snowpark Lech: kickers, drops & cliffs

17 freshly groomed and crafted obstacles are at your disposal each and every day. The Fun Run with easy obstacles is ideal for beginners or those keen to master the big kickers. The Pro Line: bigger kickers, higher speeds, more airtime. Those who take off here should have already spent some time practising hard for their ‘pilot’s license,’ so to speak. On the rail line, beginners and advanced snowboarders practice side by side to master obstacles of different heights, lengths and gradients designed to put boarders’ sense of balance to the test.
