Why take a Ski Holiday in Oberlech?
Lech is part of the largest connected ski area in Austria and therefore opens up unexpected possibilities for you. Hobby skiers, freeriders, ski sports enthusiasts, ski tourers – there is a downhill run for everyone here – for young and old!
The Arlberg region offers you 305 kilometres of downhill skiing and 200 km of deep-snow runs, and all that with just one ski pass. 88 lifts and cable cars transport you quickly to all the summits and numerous ski huts and alps take care of your physical well-being.
And the best part? Snow as far as the eyes can see – at least from December to April, because Ski Arlberg is one of the most snow-sure skiing areas!
The fact that you can take your first turn on the slopes directly from our ski room in the Sonnenburg is the finishing touch.
Freeriding & Off-Piste Skiing in Lech am Arlberg
The Arlberg region is famed for the ultimate skiing discipline: freeriding!
Gliding downhill over untracked powder snow equals pure thrill and pleasure. Deep-snow skiers can discover about 200 kilometres of high-alpine freeride trails in the Ski Arlberg ski resort accompanied by an experienced guide.
A very special off-piste experience
A helicopter takes you from Zürs to the Mehlsack (2,652 m) or the Schneetäli (2,450 m). From there you can dive into the pure off-piste skiing pleasure. Experienced ski and mountain guides lead you safely back down into the valley across pristine powder snow.
