Powder skiing - Intermediates

No expense has been spared in ultra-fashionable Lech, from heated chair lifts and plush accommodation to stylish après in the form of gourmet restaurants and champagne bars, frequented by the impeccably dressed glitterati.

This exclusivity is taken up a notch above the traditional village though, where the enclave of traffic-free Oberlech sits at 1,750m, offering doorstep skiing and picture-perfect views.

Consistently high snowfall and treeless powder bowls are an off-piste skiers dream; heli-skiing in Austria is only permitted in Lech-Zürs. Lech is an excellent choice for families, particularly traffic free Oberlech with doorstep skiing and a dedicated Kinderland, where children can find their ski legs in a safe environment before progressing to gentle child-friendly pistes.

The skiing

The extensive slopes and varied terrain of the Arlberg holds the status as the largest linked ski area in Austria. With consistently high snowfall, the Lech-Zürs-Warth-Schröcken area features fine scenic skiing and tremendous terrain for intermediates. Lift access to the pistes of St. Anton open up an array of steep runs and exceptional off-piste challenges, a dream for expert skiers and competent intermediates. Beginners will find dedicated nursery slopes in Lech and gentle progressive runs.
