Skiing in Austria

Zug/Lech is part of Ski Arlberg, one of the most famous skiing areas in the world! This is not only home to the birthplace of alpine skiing – it is also home to the Alpen Sport Resort Rote Wand, right next to the Zugerberg chairlift. “Ski in, ski out” is the magic word for transporting you from the breakfast table straight to the slope in a matter of minutes.

With its average snowfall of seven meters per winter and 68% mechanically snow-covered pistes, Ski Arlberg is one of the most varied skiing areas assured of snow – anywhere in the world. At altitudes between 1,300 and 2,800 m, 79 state-of-the-art cable cars and lifts await you, many of which boast the seat heating invented on the Arlberg, 23 moving walkways in the children’s paradise/beginner’s areas, 280 km of pistes for all degrees of difficulty, 180 km of deep powder runs, over 1,000 expertly trained snow sport trainers in numerous ski schools, fun parks, permanent racing tracks and the loveliest freeride courses around.

The „Weiße Ring“ is the highlight for enthusiastic skiers, who simply must ski the legendary course from Lech to Zürs, to Zug and Oberlech. At least once in their lives! More often is even better. Incidentally, the pistes on the Arlberg are not only long – they are also varied. 10% of the pistes are perfect for beginners, 50% are ideal for advanced skiers, and 40% are ideal for experts.

If skiing alone isn’t enough, take a helicopter for an unforgettable day of heli skiing in Vorarlberg. Further information about this and all other activities offered by Zug/Lech and the surrounding skiing areas is available from:
