We are already looking forward to welcome you in Lech again this summer!

Ski & Swing

Season ending is properly celebrated in Lech am Arlberg! From 01st to 15th April 2018 the motto is not only "Up to the ski piste!" but also "Up to the dance floor!"

At the almost legendary Tanzcafé Arlberg winter final is celebrated with brilliant sun skiing on great corn snow and with great live acts and bands in the village and at the mountain huts. Swing, jazz, rock'n'roll, boogie woogie, electro swing or pop - there's something for all tastes! There are also some concerts in our Hotel Tannbergerhof and our Irish Pub The Cottage:

Heliskiing - a very special thrill

Off-piste, far away from stress and everyday life, on deep-powder snow pistes amidst the majestic Arlberg mountain scenery - Heliskiing is a very special experience.

Lech-Zürs ranks among the few ski areas where heliskiing is still possible. It's the only place in Austria that provides special packages for this unique adventure. For those of you who want to ski on high alpine deep powder snow slopes there are two summits to choose: The 'Mehlsack summit" is for professional and experienced skiers whilst the "Schneetäli-Orgelscharte" can also be conquered by intermediates.

Take the helicopter with one of the professional ski guides of the local ski schools, fly to the mountain summits and ski back down to the valley. Due to the fact that heliskiing predominantly depends on snow and weather conditions as well as on the risk of avalanches, you can only book heliskiing adventures in the short term.

>> More information at the Lech-Zürs tourist information office.

The White Ring – the famous ski race

On Saturday, 20.01.2018, the legendary ski race The White Ring in Lech Zürs am Arlberg takes place. At the probably longest ski race in the world participants have to conquer 22 km of ski slopes and 5,500 metres in altitude.

The special thing about this event is: It goes not only downhill but also uphill with the lifts! As you cannot recover lost time at the 'ascent', you have to give everything at the downhill runs! Therefore, the race is a real challenge for skiers! It's not for nothing that this exciting event takes place under the motto "Do you have the courage to do so?" and is one of the highlights of the winter season. The ski race already takes place for the 13th time. Also this year overall 1,000 participants venture to ski downhill! Excitement and adrenalin guaranteed!

1st Arlberg Film Challenge

Soon the next event highlight is going to knock on our doors in Lech-Zürs: On 13.01.2018 the first Arlberg Film Challenge takes place. Rent your latest GoPro model at the square Rüfiplatz for free (from 9 am), make a cool video and win a prize!

There are two categories "Family" and "Action. The self-cut videos (ideally ca. 30-50 sec.) are presented to the audience and a jury of experts at 4 pm. The best videos get a prize.

Afterwards it's party time - starting from 10 pm in our hotel's own Irish Pub The Cottage. You shouldn't miss it!
