LECH AM ARLBERG

Winter

The Arlberg is Austria's biggest interconnected ski area with more than 300 km of slopes. With the opening of the Flexenbahn cableway in the winter of 2016/17, skiing at the Arlberg became even more varied and comfortable. This means that all resorts of the Arlberg skiing area – Lech, Zürs, Oberlech, St. Christoph, St. Anton, and Stuben as well as Schröcken and Warth – are easily accessible on skis.

The Arlberg ski resort in numbers:

  • 87 state-of-the-art lifts and cable cars travelling between 1,300 and 2,800 metres above sea level (many of them with seat-heating),
  • 26 ski conveyor belts in the children's and beginners' areas,
  • 305 km of pistes of all degrees of difficulty,
  • 200 km of powder runs.

In winter the Arlberg offers all kinds of winter fun not only for alpine skiers:

There is a fun park for snowboarders and freestylers at the Schlegelkopf.
