Oberlech, whilst sharing the attributes of Lech, is the ideal micro resort for families who appreciate the finer things but like the ease of doorstep skiing. Host to a small group of select hotels on a sunny, snowy plateau situated above Lech, it is totally car-free and has its own ski school, kindergarten and nursery slopes with two easy lifts, with the added bonus of easy access to the skiing of Lech and the rest of the Arlberg region.

It’s unique slope-side location provides the hamlet with a tranquillity that is fully enjoyed by its guests. The locality of the hotels and the large sunny terraces make an ideal spot for the mid morning hot chocolate or a leisurely lunch. For those seeking nightlife, access to Oberlech is only by cable car until 1am, so not recommended for night owls.

The resort offers good early snow and you can ski well into April. It is a perfect destination for the pre-Christmas warm up or the late ski holiday. Guests enjoy pampered skiing, starting with the ten heated chairlifts, taking you to the long, wide open runs that are ideal for snowboarding and intermediate skiing. Queuing is rare due to an up-to-date lift system and the restriction on the number of lift passes sold. Skiing is very snow-sure and, even in rare times of snow drought, you can be fairly sure of skiing back home every day due to snow making on the home slopes. The Arlberg region’s famous 22km White Ring route will test your stamina and offers a fun day’s excursion. There is limited off-piste routes which are marked on the piste map, however, experts will benefit on the unmarked pistes from skiing with a guide.

A few rustic mountain restaurants are to be found around the resorts, many with large sunny terraces and amazing views.

For the non-skier Lech and Oberlech provide a variety of activities including extensive marked walking trails, ice skating, tobogganing and sleigh rides and for the less energetic the high-end store Strolz has is a popular champagne bar.
