In Lech Zürs am Arlberg nothing stands in the way of true enjoyment on the pistes, and there are numerous rustic huts and "Alps" to keep hunger at bay.

Tradition and modernity in the region Arlberg
Arlberg has represented pioneering spirit in winter sports since time immemorial. Hannes Schneider and the Arlberg School revolutionised the technique of skiing, in 1937 the first drag lift in Austria appeared, and the Galzigbahn in St. Anton was the first cable car designed for winter operation. These innovations made Arlberg famous as the birthplace of Alpine skiing. This pioneering spirit can still be found on the Arlberg today. Since the last winter season, the two ski resorts of Lech Zürs and Warth-Schröcken have been connected together via the Auenfeldjet. A dream come true for winter sports lovers and a perfect example of seamless ski tourism.
"The White Ring" – the legendary ski circuit
This ski circuit between Lech, Zürs, Zug and Oberlech is unique in the Alps and has been celebrating skiing in a special kind of way for over 55 years. The original cable cars, lifts and pistes of the "White Ring" still form the centrepiece of the magnificent skiing area of Lech Zürs am Arlberg, developed by daring pioneers of skiing, and whose current 97 cable cars and lifts guarantee boundless adventurous skiing.
