Winter in Lech

Winter fun in all its facets from December to April

For over a century now, fantastic snow, warm hospitality, tradition and sophisticated tranquillity have been attracting winter sport enthusiasts from all over the world to Lech Zürs am Arlberg. The village is a member of the prestigious ‘Best of the Alps’ alliance, a select group of twelve exclusive holiday resorts. And it’s not only ambitious sports fans who appreciate the stunning winter landscape – it also has plenty to offer for walkers, gourmands and culture lovers too.

The Lech am Arlberg region ranks among the most snow-reliable winter sport areas in the Alps and, alongside its staggering mountain scenery, it also offers all the comforts and amenities of an international holiday destination. The region is distinguished by its warm hospitality and Tyrolean traditions combined with international flair and a cosmopolitan outlook.

Ski area
Stunning Alpine beauty
The Arlberg region has always been renowned for its stunning Alpine beauty, its snow reliability – not just on the slopes but down in the villages too – and the immaculate conditions on its ski slopes. Eighty-seven state-of-the-art cable cars and lifts offer the highest standards of safety and comfort. A precedent-setting highlight is the ARLBERG CARD, a reusable, high-tech ski card that provides non-contact, automatic access to the region’s ski lifts. Some 305 kilometres of marked descents, covering all levels of difficulty; 200 kilometres of challenging deep-snow, off-piste runs; snowboard fun parks; carving areas; permanent race tracks; and countless cosy mountain huts for congenial get-togethers ensure plenty of variety and never-ending fun.
Snowboarding
Snowpark Lech
Lech Zürs am Arlberg is a haven for snowboarders and freestylers too. Situated at an altitude of 1,600 metres, Lech Snowpark offers hours of adrenaline-inducing fun. Riders can put their skills to the test here from the beginning of December. Covering an area of 3.6 hectares, the park comprises 17 obstacles – Fun Run, Rail and Pro Lines – that are impeccably groomed every day. With its easier obstacles, the Fun Run is ideal for beginners, while the Pro Line offers the ultimate kick for challenge-loving daredevils.

Lech am Arlberg – Winter fun in all its facets

The missing link has been completed...

Arlberg’s newest connection – a lift between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz

Opening in the 2016/2017 winter season, the Flexenbahn lift will make skiing in the Arlberg area even more varied and skier-friendly. The new connection between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz allows skiers to reach all the resorts in the Arlberg region on skis – turning Ski Arlberg into Austria’s largest interconnected ski area!

Skiing in the Arlberg region is set to become even more enjoyable! The new cableway link on the Vorarlberg side of the Arlberg massif, between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz, as well as new cableways constructed in 2016 – the Trittkopfbahn I and II and Albonabahn II cableways – involving a total investment of EUR 45 million, are completing the final ‘missing link’. Starting from Zürs, the Trittkopfbahn I lift takes passengers to the new intermediate station, from where skiers can either continue to the new top station of Trittkopfbahn II or use the new Flexenbahn to carry on to Alpe Rauz in Stuben. From there, the Albonabahn II – likewise brand new – is available to take skiers on to Stuben. Furthermore, skiers starting out from Alpe Rauz can conveniently explore the St. Christoph and St. Anton skiing areas. This means that all resorts in the Arlberg skiing area – St. Anton and St. Christoph, Stuben, Zürs, Lech, Oberlech, Schröcken and Warth – are easy to get to on skis. Here in the Arlberg region, home to Austria’s largest lift-connected ski area, winter sport enthusiasts can enjoy no fewer than 305 km of downhill slopes and 87 lifts and cable cars, guaranteeing pure, unadulterated skiing at its very best!
