With over 8 metres of snowfall every year, Lech is as sure a thing as you can get in terms of snow guarantees in Austria.
Dave, Original Traveller
The resort of Lech is regarded as one of the most exclusive resorts in Austria. Despite the luxurious feel, Lech clings charmingly to its farming origins and remains a traditional alpine village.

Our guide to holidays in Lech
The resort is divided into two halves by a river that runs down the main high street where there are exclusive shops, restaurants and wine bars.
Located in beautiful alpine scenery, the skiing around Lech is superb, with over 150 miles of skiable terrain. The skiing takes place between 4,500 and 8,500ft above sea level, and the resort is ideal for the intermediate skier while there are areas of off-piste that can be accessed by the more adventurous, a Fun Park for snowboarders, and 15 miles of cross country tracks.
The après ski is refined and revolves around champagne and canapés at the Ice Bar or the Champagne Bar at the Hotel Montana. Later on, the nightclubs Scotch Club Disco and Fux are normally heaving with party-goers.
