LECH SKI HOLIDAYS

Lech is one of the most attractive villages in Austria, it has amongst the best annual snow fall accumulation and together with Zurs and the more distant St Anton and St Christoph, offers the best ski region in Austria and beyond. Much of the accommodation in Lech has excellent access to the numerous ski lifts and slopes that surround the village. On top of that Lech has the satellite village of Oberlech which offers total ski-in, ski-out accommodation some 200m above Lech. Lech is one of the most upmarket resorts in Austria and is hugely popular, with accommodation that can be hard to find in high season. That said there is good priced accommodation available and for alpine beauty and big ski fields, there are few better than Lech.

LECH SKI HOLIDAY INFORMATION

The skiing in Lech is superb and one of the key reasons for its popularity. The massive ‘White Ring’ is a ski circuit that all competent intermediates could probably master and loops the entire Lech-Zurs ski area. Skiing is Lech is predominantly intermediate but off-piste and the nearby St Anton are on hand for testing terrain.

Stayed in Oberlech which in my opinion is a better base for families - free creche, on slope and great toboggan run down to Lech. Have 3 kids (4 7 and 10) and the 4 year old was the only one in ski school. Was a wee bit disappointed that he was not taken up the hill, when most of the kids were. The ski instructor did not seem that interested. We did get our older 2 a private lesson during lunch - which is great value by the way! - and thought the instructor was excellent.

Hotel Krone and Pfefferkorn seem to be the places to go. The Burg hotel in Oberlech was pretty busy too. All very mild though in comparison with St Anton along the road.
