Lech and its higher neighbour Zürs are the most glamorous and expensive resorts in Austria. Lech is for those who don’t mind fur coats, do like well groomed, cruising slopes, and are content to enjoy a winter holiday in pampered comfort and style in a traditional Alpine village.
There are challenging slopes available and the tougher slopes of St. Anton are only a short bus- or car-ride away. But it is the part-timer, who enjoys the après and the strolling as much as the winter sports that will get the most out of the resort.
