The largest ski area in Austria, Ski Arlberg, connects the two winter sensations of Vorarlberg and Tyrol and is the largest ski area in Austria. It attracts all sorts of people from all over the world and celebrity guests often come here. This fascinating area with its beautiful pistes stretches over almost a dozen villages, such as Oberlech, Zürs and many others. With its numerous holiday flats and apartments, it offers a wide selection of overnight accommodations and thus allows an individual choice for the taste of everyone. In terms of price, both the normal earner and the wealthy will find what they are looking for. Apart from the fine and cosy atmosphere, the view offered by many of these hotels and guesthouses in the Lech am Arlberg alone is a feast for the eyes and will delight many winter and ski lovers.
On the enormously long ski slopes, athletes get their necessary run and adventurous get the kick they are looking for. However, there are also cosy skiers who get their money’s worth here.
The area consists of 305 kilometres of groomed slopes and almost 200 kilometres of unprepared terrain. In addition, the slopes can be divided into the following categories:
approx. 130 km – easy (suitable for beginners)
approx. 123 km – medium (ideal for experienced hobby skiers but also for beginners to master)
approx. 51 km – (for demanding and experienced skiers and skiers)
If you do not have your own winter equipment, this is not a problem, because you can easily rent it in many places of the ski area, but there are also purchase options available. There are also several small ski slopes in the area.

One of the main attractions of this winter area is the summit Valluga and is with its 2811 meters the highest elevation of the ski area and lies in St. Anton, which with St. Christoph and Stuben in the east and the Lech and Zürs in the west forms the main area of this enormously large territory. Neither cross-country skiers nor snowboarders miss out here, because the wide selection of different pistes offers the ideal for everyone, no matter whether you are an old hand in skiing or have just discovered this hobby. The summit of Valluga, however, is only allowed with protective equipment and accompanied by a mountain guide. Those who would like to do without it and want to explore the area alone should not underestimate the Schindlergrat at 2643 metres and should visit it.
The weather is very snowy in these areas in winter, but if there is no snow, you should know that snow cannons are ready for use on about 62% of the ski area.
Wer noch am Überlegen ist, sollte eine Entscheidung treffen und im Hinterkopf behalten, dass auch die Übernachtungsmöglichkeiten begrenzt sind.
