Welcome to Lech resort guide, Lech resort guide, luxury ski holiday in Lech, Lech skiing, skiing in LechSkiing in Lech is one of the better places in the Arlberg area for mixed abilities, with a nest of blues and reds just one lift away from the centre of Lech. For beginners skiing in Lech, the Schlegelkopf can take you halfway up the mountain to wide-tree lined pistes, and if you plan your route thoughtfully you can wind back through Oberlech and enjoy a gluhwein at the Burg Ice Bar on your way. For the more adventurous, you could reach new heights at the peak of Zuger Hochlicht with blue runs leading back down the left of the mountain.

For more advanced skiers in Lech, the whole Arlberg region is your oyster! There’s enough skiing to not ski the same piste twice, even after a couple of visits! With an early start, you can make your way to St. Anton, either by driving or lifts, and ski back through Stuben & Zurs, and finish with a short drive back to Lech in time for the apres. Alternatively, for the very enthusiastic skiers, you can attempt the Run of Fame, an 85km circuit running through the entire cradle of Arlberg.
