Lech is especially good for intermediates and beginners, with long, well-prepared runs and a modern, highly efficient lift system.
The area of Oberlech has ideal nursery slopes and several good restaurants, making it a popular choice for lunch, on a sunny terrace with superb views.
Some of the most challenging runs are found around Zürs, accessed via the Rüfikopf cable car, the starting point for the White Ring tour of the Lech - Zürs - Zug circuit.
The Arlberg ski pass includes nearby St Anton, St Christohe and Stuben, offering all the challenges the most advanced skiers or boarders might want on some of Europe's toughest slopes.
A frequent 15 minute shuttle links the areas and experts can return to Lech by an off-piste itinerary.
Lech also make a good choice for anyone wanting to try some off-piste boarding or skiing with a guide.
There's a good choice of bars, cafes, high quality restaurants, stylish shops and après-ski activities, including skating, curling, sledging, spa therapies and sleigh rides.
Après-ski kicks off with music & drinks at the outdoor ice bars at the foot of the slopes and Tea dancing (in boots!) at the Tannbergerhof.
Later, try elegant Klausur for cocktails, stylish Fux for malt whisky and jazz and Scotch Club or Pfefferkorn in Lech, or Vernissage in Zürs, for late night clubbing.
Lech doesn't have the hard core dancing on tables nightlife of St Anton but it's varied enough and late enough for most!

Hotels in Lech are some of the most welcoming we have experienced and access to the slopes and lifts is exceptionally convenient wherever you choose to stay.
Lech is a good choice for parties of mixed ability and has many alternative day time activities for anyone not planning to ski or board.
