Unless you're a very confident skier I wouldn't recommend Lech! Compared to France, Lech's blue runs are very steep with a few easy sections, whereas France's blue runs are easy with a few tricky sections! The main run back to Lech village is classed as a blue but it is definitely a hard red!... Full Review

If the sun is shining a great area (but then most ski areas are great in the sun). But if weather is marginal, poor or bad forget it. Lifts close too easily reducing each village to a tiny resort with awful old lift infrastructure and unacceptable queues. For example Lech has an antiquated 2 man slow chairlift and 1x drag lift if there is any medium to strong wind - and that’s it ( for 300 Euros for a 6 day pass). Strong winds and they close all of it. (The cable car to OberLech isn’t really to get to skiing). Zürs is the same. 2 baby drag lifts and a chair lift with a height difference of around 100m. For a supposed “World Class Resort” they are years behind the French Resorts in opening up after storms. Be very careful when considering a ski holiday here. If the weather is marginal or poor then you will be wasting your money and would get much better value nearly any where else. I’ve skied many times in France, the USA and Canada and the Lech/Zürs region was by far the worst when dealing with bad weather. This not a “World Class” resort because of this failing. They even had the arrogance to highlight “40cm of new Powder” on main page of their App when all of the lifts were shut. ... Full Review

Lech has it all, amazing snow, great lift system, amazing restaurants and apre ski choices in Uberlech and elsewhere. We liked the interconnected lifts and ski runs to Warth, Stuben, St.Anton and Zuers that give you so many options on where to ski and ride. We love the many pensions and family-owned accommodations that we have stay at. Ski routes throughout the Lech and Zuers areas offer powder turns for better skiers and we love the many on-slope restaurants to select from when it’s time for a beer and food break. In the eventing there are a lot of casual and formal restaurants depending on your mood. We love that most of the upper mountain stays uncrossed and that you can ski all over the region on one lift ticket. I strongly suggest staying in a small, family run hotel or pension with a local family to get the most out of your trip to the Arlberg. The region gets tons of snow and the only downside can be the low visibility days above the tree line. It’s our favorite ski resort in Austria and a top 3 destination. ... Full Review

Did Zurs on the Epic pass March 17th for 6 days, and it was amazing. The town is small, but it is 100% about skiing. You can buy anything related to skiing there- I needed a jacket, and am 6'8" tall, and found 2 at different shops next to where I was staying (Arlberg Haus). Spent one day skiing to Worth guided by host Tomas Eggler, another to St Anton. Throughout the range are great places to eat and vast terrain with sweet untracked pow. Of all the places we skiied on that trip, Zurs was #1, and I could see why Austria is the birthplace of skiing. ... Full Review

Really great resort with many places to go each day. Snow conditions were excellent and pistes were well looked after. The white ring was a main highlight! Town is lovely with many restaurants, bars and other things for the rest of the family, including Austrian curling! ... Full Review

Slightly more grown up than neighbouring St Anton but still lively, powder paradise for all levels and great for families. Plenty of wide runs if you prefer 1 plank, a great park, tree skiing and variety for all levels. Have not been back country but I here it is sweet!!... Full Review

This is one of the best set of mountains with great accommodations and great service from rentals, restaurants, hotel accommodations, and bus service. All cities are planned and designed to promote the sport. Whether you go with a family, send your kids to one of their clubs, or go with friends for après ski, the cities around the park offers it all. There is also a snowboard park...which is rare to find.... Full Review

Feb, 2014, will be my 10th return to Oberlech, staying at same Pension Sabine each time. Love the ski-in and ski-out which makes an ideal vacation for me. As an advanced intermediate skier, I find the runs exciting, challenging but well within my ability. Returning to Sabine's each year is like meeting family again … with all the comforts of a grand hotel but the intimacy and gemutlichkeit of staying with relatives. Not the cheapest place to ski … but you do get your money's worth in charm, ambience, quality and service .. anywhere on the hill. I get my 10-year silver pin this year … that is enough in the way of a recommendation.... Full Review
