Bringing glitz and glamour to the ski scene, Lech is a fashionable resort set in Austria’s largest, world-class ski area. You can find finesse in every detail across its snow-coated slopes, from heated chair lifts to luxury five-star hotels and gourmet restaurants. The perfect choice for families seeking a winter break, there’s something for everyone to enjoy a ski holiday in Lech.

Dating back to the early 20th century, Lech holds the roots of modern skiing, offering an iconic, historic feel that attracts European royalty for their winter getaways. It’s a snow-sure spot, with one of the Alps best snow records, so you can expect perfect conditions during your visit.

Following your arrival at Innsbruck (the nearest airport), followed by a 1hr30-minute transfer, the resort greets you with an extensive range of ski slopes and varied terrain, with options to suit all ability levels. There are 340 kilometres of fully linked groomed runs, and 200 kilometres of runs off-piste for intermediate skiers and advanced skiers to choose from. The highest skiing point is 2811 metres above sea level, offering show-stopping views. Beginners can be gently introduced to the art of piste skiing in the ski school learning areas, located on the edge of Lech, and Ober Lech, the main, traffic-free village settled just above. Little guests will love Ober Lech’s doorstep skiing option and dedicated Kinderland, where they can master their skills in a safe environment before progressing to child-friendly pistes.

The resort also offers excellent links to neighbouring resorts via the ski lifts, including Zürs, Warth-Schröcken, and St. Anton, which adds a vast array of extra routes to your map. You can spend your day exploring these alternative winter wonderlands, or remain local, and dip into some activities that don’t require skis. Browse the resort’s shops, fine dine at the selection of sophisticated restaurants, or enjoy a hike through the fresh snow and crisp mountain air. You can race down the slopes on a toboggan, sit back and relax on a horse-drawn sleigh ride, or rise higher than the Alps’ snow-capped peaks on a thrilling tandem flight.

There are plenty of places you can retreat to after an exhilarating day in the snow. Our exclusive collection of cosy hotels offer the warm welcome home you need every evening. With luxury rooms and suites, indoor pools, award-winning restaurants, and personalised service as standard across our portfolio, your ski escape is destined to be perfect.

Whether you’re looking for a secluded adult-only retreat or a chalet-style hotel with family facilities, we have something for you. Speak to one of our Travel Specialists today to hear more about our finest luxury ski hotels with fantastic views of Austria’s glistening Alps.
