The heart-stopping narrow roads and tunnels that puncture the steep valleys and impossibly tall peaks provide a dramatic entrance into this famous region of the Alps many consider the birthplace of Alpine skiing.
Located at the end of the valley at Flexen Pass, Lech and neighboring Zürs Ski Resort are the most exclusive, with shorter lift lines and less crowded slopes than St. Anton. When celebrities go skiing in Austria, this is where they often stay.
Founded in the 14th century, Lech, surrounded by 9,000 foot mountains, retains its medieval charm while its slopes bask in international fame.
This idyllic setting offers downhill runs from both sides of the valley right to the center of town. Tree-free steep descents and wide open bowls provide great skiing for all levels.
Your lift ticket links you with nearby Zurs, Zug, St. Anton, St. Christoph, and Stuben. Lech & Zürs have it all: world famous ski schools, guided ski tours, heli-skiing, snow-boarding, paragliding, child care at ski kindergarten, winter hiking, cross country skiing in untouched nature, ice skating and Austrian style curling, toboggan run, horse drawn sleigh rides, outdoor cafes , late afternoon tea dances, and entertainment that runs until almost dawn complete the picture.
