Hey everyone, want to know the best place to snow ski in the world?
Lech, Austria is the answer
Lech am Arlberg is a mountain village and an exclusive ski resort in the Bludenz district in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg on the banks of the river Lech. In terms of both geography and history, Lech belongs to the Tannberg district. In tourist terms, however, it is part of the Arlberg region. Lech is administered together with the neighboring villages of Zürs, Zug, Oberlech and Stubenbach. The municipality is an internationally known winter sports resort on the mountain range Arlberg.
In recent years Lech has grown to become one of the world’s premier ski destinations and the home of many world and Olympic ski champions.
Alpine skiing is a major priority in Lech Zürs am Arlberg. For decades the Arlberg has been known as the “cradle of Alpine skiing” and casts a spell over enthusiastic skiers’ year after year, winter after winter. Tradition and modernity,
Lech am Arlberg is where the rich and famous go to play in the snow, and the rest of us go to watch them. Lech is a very traditional Austrian ski resort, and the associated town is very cosmopolitan with lively bars and excellent restaurants.
Lech Austria also has plenty of shopping opportunities, but you might need to max out the credit card because of the pressure to conform to wearing beautiful ski clothes. People watching in the main street of Lech is an activity in itself, as tens of thousands of Euros of Prada clothes strut past.
The sophistication of Lech is very apparent, but it doesn’t overpower the long-established charm of the town and the slopes.
Great for families – gentle slopes and wide range of facilities for the kids.
Loads of ski-in ski-out hotels.
Interconnected with magnificent St Anton and snowy Warth Schroecken.
Traditional Austria ski resort with traditional Austrian culture.
Good après ski activities.
One lift pass and no bus connections for the entire ski region.
Pristine peaks and sparkling snow make for an attractive package — even with some of our man-made “creations” — but some just carry their beauty a little bit better. The setting, the architecture, the atmosphere, the personality — it all somehow adds up to more than the sum of the parts.
