Alpine skiing is a major priority in Lech Zürs am Arlberg. For decades the Arlberg has been known as the "cradle of Alpine skiing" and casts a spell over enthusiastic skiers year after year, winter after winter. People who like alternative winter sports will find ideal conditions and lots on offer in Lech Zürs am Arlberg. There are fantastic routes for cross-country skiers and snowshoers. In addition, visitors can enjoy romantic horse-drawn sleigh rides through the snow-covered landscape and curling.

Skiing

305 kilometres of ski slopes of all levels of difficulty and 200 kilometres of exclusive deep powder snow runs make Ski Arlberg a unique winter sports resort. The five villages of Lech, Zürs, Stuben, St. Christoph and St. Anton am Arlberg open their doors onto the fascinating world of the finest powder snow and majestic Alpine peaks, of ample variety and a unique sense of freedom. In winter 2016/17 the new Flexenbahn between Zürs and Stuben/Rauz will be opened, thus providing a link for the entire Arlberg skiing region - making it possible to easily reach all Arlberg skiing locations on skis. This makes the Arlberg skiing region the largest continuous skiing area in Austria, making skiing and skiing holidays even more versatile and comfortable!

Heliskiing

Heli-skiing offers freeride aficionados a truly memorable experience. Lech Zürs is the only resort in Austria to offer packages for this exciting snow activity. You can choose between two magnificent peaks: the "Mehlsack" summit is ideal for experienced skiers, while the "Schneetäli-Orgelscharte" is recommended for skiers with intermediate skills – and is particularly attractive in the spring on the hard-packed snow. Heli-skiing packages are for up to four people including the ski guide and can be booked directly through the ski schools in Lech and Zürs.

The White Ring - The Race

In 2006, "The White Ring - The Race" took place for the first time. It has long since become a "cult race" with an attractive supporting programme. Participants have to rise to the challenge of 22 kilometres of pistes and 5,500 metres of ascent. "The White Ring - The Race" is thus "the world's longest ski race". Registration takes place in September 2016. Incidentally, the course record is held by former downhill ski racer Patrick Ortlieb with a time of 44:35:07 minutes. It remains to be seen whether this record will be broken on the 10th birthday of "The White Ring - The Race". Save the date: 21.01.2017

Run of fame - maximum skiing experience

With the new Flexenbahn, a spectacular skiing run will be created: The new "Run of Fame" has been dedicated to the Arlberg skiing stars and boosts the skiing experience to a maximum of 65 downhill skiing kilometres and an incredible altitude difference of 18,000 metres. The skiing run leads across the Arlberg and takes in the entire dimension of the fully connected skiing area – from Warth in the north via Lech Zürs with the new Flexenbahn to St. Anton/Rendl in the south – the entire Arlberg skiing area will be covered. In addition, once a year there will be a "Hunt of Fame" – a top class ski race along the new skiing run on the Arlberg.

Game watching / Game feeding

Wild animals, particularly the native red deer, are shy forest dwellers and you don’t very often catch sight of them in the wild. However, during the hard winter months when food becomes scarce, deer venture very close to populated areas and almost forget they are afraid of people. This means you can watch majestic deer feeding at dusk at close range. Experience this unusual natural spectacle from the shelter of a hide. Every Tuesday during the winter season we offer guided hikes to watch the wildlife. Further information and reservations at Lech Zürs Information.

Snowshoeing

Modern technology makes it possible. While it used to be infinitely tedious to trudge through the winter landscape despite wearing snowshoes, snowshoeing is today one of the most pleasant and most relaxing ways to exercise in the open air during winter. And what's more, snowshoeing is one of the sustainable winter sports. That is because it allows everything that is good for relaxation and revival to be combined – nature as far as the eye can see, clear, fresh mountain air and steady, rhythmic exercise. The great thing about it is that no special knowledge or specific training are needed for snowshoeing. Whoever wants to try it out can rent the equipment on-site – Lech Zürs Tourist Office has the necessary information. Buckle up the snowshoes and get moving. Fans of this sport will find an almost endless array of possibilities in Lech Zürs. Highly recommended: a hike with a guide. The guide knows the area inside out and leads hikers on the most beautiful routes to the most amazing places in Lech Zürs. Not only sun terraces, huts and "Alps", but also numerous staging points invite you to take a well earned rest. Experience the stillness and enjoy nature in her primordial form.
