Why take a Ski Holiday in Oberlech?
There are three good reasons (out of many) to choose our ski-in ski-out hotel in Austria:
- Snow resort: Oberlech am Arlberg lies at 1,650 metres. Such a high altitude guarantees snow-covered slopes from November until the end of April.
- Car-free: All hotels in Oberlech are connected by an underground tunnel system. This way, you can experience a pristine mountainscape: completely free of cars and traffic. In this respect, Oberlech is unique in Europe. Thus, the car-free ski resort is particularly suited for your family winter holidays.
- Right on the slopes: Get on your skis and start skiing! Right in front of Hotel Sonnenburg. So, there is no need for a lengthy drive.
The White Ring
“The White Ring”, best known among skiers, consists of the six slopes connecting Lech, Zürs, Zug and Oberlech and takes you once around the Omeshorn mountain over almost 22 kilometres of slopes. “The White Ring” is a half-day and sightseeing tour and a must for skiers and snowboarders in Lech. Easy and intermediate slopes await you on your way, just like the two viewing platforms at the “Rüfikopf” top station and “Madloch” and endless snow-white mountain scenery. Have fun on “The White Ring”!
