Lech and Zurs


Cocooned in snow and oozing class, this is Austria's most fashionable

Lech can justifiably lay claim to being Austria's most fashionable ski village - and a recent link-up with a neighbouring resort means it is now at the centre of one of the Alps' most vast and thrilling ski areas.

Lech, high in the Arlberg region that straddles the provinces of Tirol and Vorarlberg, is an affluent, traditional and picturesque village with a riverside location. Because of its altitude, the snow record is very good (an impressive average of eight metres a season) and Lech shares extensive skiing with the neighbouring village of Zurs. On the same lift pass is St Anton, St Christoph and Stuben, a short ski-bus ride away.
