Lech, Austria
Charming, exclusive, luxury for the beautiful people.
Lech Zürs Austria: Exclusive slopes, charming resort, luxury for the beautiful people.

Lech and its higher neighbor Zürs are the most glamorous and expensive resorts in Austria. Their shared slopes could fairly easily be linked with those of St.Anton - but then their rich and royal visitors would be forced to mingle with hoi polloi from their equally famous but less exclusive neighbor.

Lech is for those who don't mind fur coats, do like well groomed, snow sure, cruising slopes, and are content to enjoy a winter holiday in pampered comfort and style in a traditional Alpine village. There are challenging slopes available (mainly off-slope) and the tougher slopes of St.Anton are only a short bus- or car-ride away. But it is the part-timer, who enjoys the après and the strolling as much as the winter sports who will get the most out of the resort. It helps to have a deep pocket.

What's Great
What's Not-So-Great

+ Picturesque Alpine village

+ Fair-sized, largely intermediate slope network plus good off-slope terrain

+ Easy access to the tougher slopes of St Anton and other Arlberg resorts

+ Sunny slopes with excellent snow record and extensive snowmaking

+ Lively après-ski scene

+ Very chic resort, with some very comfortable hotels

Very expensive, and credit cards not always accepted by hotels, shops, restaurants or lift pass office

Surprising dearth of atmospheric mountain restaurants other than in the mini-resort of Oberlech

Very few tough slopes

Blue runs back to the village are rather steep for nervous novices

Still a few antiquated lifts
