Austria

One of the most exclusive ski resorts in Austria, Lech certainly has a lot to offer. Being a picturesque traditional village and striking the perfect balance of sublime Austrian skiing and relaxation makes for an idyllic family holiday. 

The Village

If you want to stay in a picturesque traditional Austrian village Lech is the destination of choice. From classic Alpine chalets to exceptional snowfall, Lech is ideal for an active and relaxing holiday whether on piste or off. Lech strikes the perfect balance of sublime Austrian skiing, good restaurants and relaxation, making it the perfect family holiday choice.

the skiing

Frequented by die-hard beginners and royalty alike, Lech has plenty to offer any level of skier. The resort has a large connected ski web offering a total ski area of more than 280km and the impressive snow record continues to bring people back for more. Part of the vast Arlberg ski region, Lech and the nearby Zurs are linked by gondola to the smaller resorts Warth and Shrocken that are known to be the snowiest destinations in the Alps, creating a combined ski area that is 50% bigger than the existing Lech-Zurs terrain
