Luxury Ski Holidays in Lech
Lech ski holidays hold an unrivalled reputation for exclusivity and outstanding snow. The destination has earned its place amongst the top ‘must-ski’ resorts in the world. Part of the Arlberg ski area, which includes neighbouring St Anton, both its skiing and snow reliability are superb.
Despite a modest altitude of 1,450m, Lech receives around twice the amount of snow of some of its French competitors. In addition to superb luxury chalets in Lech, the beautiful, car-free town centre is full to the brim with swanky hotels and glitzy designer boutiques and shops.
With its stunning architecture, Lech encapsulates style, sophistication and elegance. The traditional town has remained the resort of choice for European royalty for decades, and one can see why.
The resort has maintained its unique charm yet also has the advantage of an extensive ski area spanning 305 km. Come December, Lech’s Christmas markets held in the Church square turn the town into something of a winter fairytale; there could not be a more perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit.

Skiing in Lech
Lech ski holidays are renowned for featuring well-groomed pistes, fast lifts and great snow.

On the mountain above Oberlech, a majority of blue runs will make for a good beginner's base, whilst the second sector on the other side of Lech has some beautiful off-piste descents and intermediate runs. Connected by the Auenfeldjet gondola, Warth-Schröcken has a combination of challenging black runs, with more intermediate and easy runs.
