Skiing in Lech

Country: Austria

In a nutshell: Austria’s most upmarket resort, with an amazing ski area and snow record

We like:

  • The riverside setting is very pretty and the lovely village oozes alpine charm
  • The extensive ski area has something for everyone, with intermediate skiers being best served
  • The lift that connect to St Anton and Warth-Schroeken make the ski area one of Austria’s biggest
  • Lech’s snow record is excellent; with an average snowfall of over 10m per year it is one of Europe’s snowiest places
  • The apres-ski in Lech is great and surprisingly varied

We don’t like:

  • The resort is expensive by Austrian standards
  • Not much challenging skiing on piste for advanced skiers in Lech itself – there’s plenty in St Anton and lots of off piste though
  • Almost all the skiing is above the tree-line, so options are limited when the weather closes in

RESORT DESCRIPTION

Lech is an old farming village which over time has become the most luxurious ski resort in Austria. However, despite the many five star hotels it doesn’t feel particularly exclusive; there are some good budget accommodation options and the prices, while high for Austria, are good value in comparison to similar resorts in France and Switzerland.

Despite housing some of the most luxurious hotels in the Austrian Alps, the town still retains its old farming-village feel, thanks to it riverside position and traditional Austrian architecture. The shopping is fairly limited, and almost all of the restaurant and bars are in the hotels, but there are still some excellent dining options and fun, lively apres ski.

The skiing in Lech is excellent; as part of the Arlberg ski circus it’s linked to St Anton and Warth-Schroeken, making it one of Austria’s biggest ski areas. It’s an intermediate skier’s paradise, with seemingly endless red runs over varying terrain.

Advanced skiers won’t find much to challenge them on piste in Lech, but the off-piste skiing is excellent and the world-famous steep skiing in St Anton is just a few lift rides away.

There are some excellent nursery slopes for beginners and the ski schools are very good. Adventurous beginners will find plenty of easy-intermediate runs to progress to, however on the down side. nervous first-time skiers will find the blue runs back to the resort challenging.

All in all, Lech’s combination of charming village, exceptional snow record, huge and varied ski area and high accommodation standards make it hard to beat; it’s a real gem of a ski resort.
