Situated in a quiet corner of the Alberg ski region, Lech is a charming, upmarket resort which is a firm favourite of the Dutch royal family. Originally a farming village, Lech has managed to find the perfect balance between authenticity and sophistication by retaining its traditional buildings while embracing the high end catered ski chalets.
New for 2017 is The Flexenbahn lift that links St Aton to Lech making it one of the largest resorts in Europe.
The resort has an excellent snow record and if you are looking for quiet pistes and high quality facilities this is the choice for you. It is perfect for beginners and intermediates alike with its comfortable, wide-open pistes. For those looking for a real ski adventure the ‘White Ring’ is a must. 22km of blue and red runs around Lech, Oberlech, Zurs and Zug will certainly keep you on your toes. There are also excellent cross country trails and other non-alpine skiing activities to enjoy.
The town is a little quieter than nearby St Anton, but being Austria there are several bars and restaurants where you can sit out and relax in the afternoon sunshine.
