We in Lech-Zürs not only have the largest contiguous ski resort in Austria – we are also looking back to a record winter.
It is at least record-breaking when we can count already 75 good weather days during the first 100 days of the season.
The winter of 2016 / 17 will be defined as a
‘record winter’ in the history of the regionLech-Zürs. With the new Flexenbahn betweenZürs and Stuben / Rauz more than 100 ski bus
rides have been replaced. The new connection
makes the ski resort now to the largest
combined ski resort in Austria. Additionally,
the village was calmed, as now less cars are
passing by. Depending on the route the
driving time is now also shortened.
In this way every skier personally contributes
to protecting the environment.
Besides the new Flexenbahn
also the new cable car Lech-
Oberlech is attracting visitors. Our ‘local
mountain cable car’ is comfortable, offers
level access and an almost silent ride up to
the sun paradise Oberlech. There is even
more: The new capacity of 2 x 80 persons
(formerly 32 persons) significantly shortens
the waiting time. The new cable car follows
the same line from the village centre to Oberlech
and extends the existing tunnel system,
which serves our hotel in the underground
and keeps Oberlech car-free also in winter.
Unique mountain world
No wonder that Arlberg is fascinating people
already for centuries. The imposing mountain
world always required courage, innovative
strength and team spirit from the pioneers.
People here are perfectly equipped
with these characteristics and always understood
challenges as a chance. Thus Arlberg
is since the 19th century the ‘cradle of alpine
skiing’ and gave birth to many skiing pioneers
and great skiing stars. The region
owes this also to the sunny climate. This
year there have been already more than 75
good weather days during the first 100 days
of the season. Maybe this is also a record.
So Oberlech is a true sunny spot and will
make you fancy the next sunny winter. But
there is still time, as now spring, firn skiing
and then the – hopefully also – sunny summer
