Description
Lech 
 is considered, along with Zurs, to be one of the most fashionable resorts in Austria but also offers charm and a beautiful riverside setting

For a greater chance of snow-sure runs, you can head to the higher resort of Zurs where there excellent intermediate pistes and you can also find some of the best –off piste conditions, especially after heavy snowfall. Last season a new link was built which also connect Lech with Warth-Schrocken, which is renowned for being even snowier than Zurs. Intermediates will love Lech, especially the famous White Ring circuit that links Lech and Zurs.

The Alberg ski pass covers neighbouring resorts includuing; St Anton, Stuben, and St Christoph although you won’t be disappointed with the amount of terrain to explore in Lech and Zurs alone. 

St Anton  is a well-known and popular Austrian ski resort, located in the Arlberg region.  The town itself is attractive and always bustling with energy. The night life is hugely enjoyable, but families should be aware that the resort centre can get very noisy at night.  

The resort boasts excellent powder conditions when it snows, and the off-piste conditions are vast. There is a very efficient lift system and the new Rendl lift is extremely fast.

St Anton is probably not the best place for beginners (so families with yopung children should probably look elsewhere – please discuss your requirements with our sales consultants who can you find you the perfect resort), as the slopes are tough, and the pistes back into resort are steep and get very crowded. For competent skiers St Anton is heaven, especially if you have the mentally of ‘last orders’ (in a bar) and ‘first lift’ in the morning!
