Frequented by die-hard skiers, beginners and royalty alike, Lech is ideal for your family ski trip to Austria. The ski area is huge with plenty of wide flattering runs coming right into the town, exceptional off-piste opportunities and a snow park. Combine this with excellent hotels, chic boutique shopping and award-winning restaurants and you’ll be spoilt for choice.

We're not the only ones who love Lech. Nick Trend, Ski Editor of the Daily Telegraph, was quoted in the November 2013 edition as saying:

"Lech and Zürs in Austria are being linked by gondola to Warth and Shröcken, resorts little known to Britons but packing a mighty powder punch as they’re the snowiest destinations in the Alps. The combined ski area is 50 per cent bigger than the existing Lech-Zürs terrain. "

Activities and indulgences for You

Lech strikes the perfect balance of great Austrian skiing, good restaurants and relaxation, making it the perfect holiday choice. With a vast ski area and impressive snow record visitors really are in skiing heaven. Lech is also the perfect place to have a go at cross country skiing, with some great routes and tracks to enjoy.

Fun for the Kids

Both on and off the slopes, Lech is an alpine playground for the kids. Don’t miss the exhilarating toboggan run from the hamlet of Oberlech served by its own lift or the horse drawn sleigh adventures to Zug.
