After all, now more than ever, Lech Zürs stands for quality before quantity, for spaciousness and space. This is just one of many reasons why the area is so popular with families. Many of our regular guests have been coming to Lech Zürs since they were kids. Oftentimes they learned to ski here in the Arlberg region while on holiday with their own parents. Such loyal guests still regularly holiday in Lech Zürs to this day, now with their own children and their grandparents. For many of our regular guests, a holiday in the Arlberg area has become a meeting place for large families, where the generations get together again at least once a year.

Off-piste action in Lech Zürs - A true local guide makes the difference

In addition to the optimally groomed slopes for sporty carvers, recreational skiers and families, ski tourers, powder snow skiers, freeriders and freeskiers have 200 km of high-Alpine powder runs at their disposal. With the appropriate safety equipment, consisting of

  • helmet,
  • avalanche shovel,
  • avalanche transceiver (LVS),
  • avalanche probe,
  • first aid kit
  • and bivouac sack,

nothing stands in the way of a backcountry adventure in the powder snow. Nevertheless, we recommend that you only ski off-piste with an experienced ski guide. As a proven expert, he or she will show you the best routes and slopes, depending on the weather and snow conditions. In addition to skiing lessons, the ski schools also offer ski guides who will lead you safely on an adventure through the ski resort. Skiing with a true local guide is an experience you won’t soon forget!
