The elite resort of Lech-Zurs which shares the Arlberg region with St Anton has announced special powder snow deals during three weeks in January.
Package price starts at just 570 Euros per person and run from Jan. 10, 17, or 24. The package includes a full six-day Arlberg region ski pass valid on over 85 cable cars and lifts, as well as seven nights bed and breakfast in a three-star guesthouse.
The Arlberg Ski Area is famous around the world as a destination for serious skiers, and Lech is a key part of it. The Arlberg, one of the few ski regions in the world to measure its unprepared trails as well as those mechanically groomed, claims 180km (113 miles) of ungroomed powder slopes on top of the 280km (161 miles) of prepared trails.
Once there, your first decision of the morning is whether to warm up on the Mohnenfluh and test the Steinmähder, Hasensprung, Rotschrofen, and Weibermahd slopes or to head straight off on to the tough pistes on the Rüfikopf. Beginners at least have the simple choice of the gentle nursery slopes near to the hotels.
Experts have a vast selection of off piste trails with guided touring, off piste and heli-skiing also available. The Arlberg Card, a high-tech ski pass which fits in your pocket, gives the holder automatic access through all turnstiles at the Arlberg's cable car and lift stations. The Arlberg Ski Club, established in 1901 and today one of the world's most famous and most successful, has weekly meetings throughout the season. New members are accepted so long as they have visited Arlberg for at least three years and are recommended for membership by a club member.
