The Lechtal Alps surround Lech, which is situated in a bright location high up in a picturesque valley.

Ski lifts, pistes, and a shuttle link Lech to the higher resort Zurs, which is why the resorts are often referred to as Lech-Zurs. They’re all part of the Arlberg region, a famed 280-kilometer ski area that connects Lech and Zurs to après-ski legend St. Anton and the lesser communities of St Christoph and Stuben. The Arlberg pass allows you to ski the whole area.
