Overview of Lech

Lech forms part of the Arlberg ski area which also includes world-famous St Anton as well as the smaller hamlets of St Christophe, Zurs and Stuben. It was one of the earliest Alpine ski villages and although a cosmopolitan resort today, Lech has managed to maintain a traditional alpine and fairytale-like atmosphere whilst offering a sophisticated nightlife, short lift queues and a balanced mixture of gentle and challenging runs. Often considered the little brother of St Anton, Lech actually more than holds its own as a ski resort in its own right. There are less catered chalets here but hotels are plentiful and great quality, the après scene is buzzing and some of the best skiing in the Arlberg is accessed from the gondolas which rise from the heart of the village, either side of the river.

3 Things We Love About Lech

1. Skiing access – Getting into the heart of the Arlberg is what Lech is all about. From the smaller resorts immediately next-door like Zurs and Oberlech to the further-flung areas of Zug, Warth and Sonnenkopf, Lech offers the easiest access to all.

2. Sophistication – With its reputation for high-end hotels, the choice-resort of the British Royal family and a more refined après scene, Lech is at the very least worth at least one day-trip from St Anton.

3. Modern lifts – Annual improvements to the lift system have not only enabled a skier’s link between all the major Arlberg resorts (rather than buses), but they’re also among the quickest and most efficient in the Alps meaning you’re rarely stood in a queue.
