Insider advice for your Lech vacation , Alps , Arlberg

Picture-perfect village 5 stars
Lech may be one of the most expensive places to ski in Austria, but there´s no getting away from the fact that it´s also quite possibly the prettiest. The mountains, covered in crisp white snow, the beautiful chalets and houses and elegant hotels - this is perhaps the perfect example of a beautiful Alpine village. If you´re not a skier but are staying nearby, do make an effort to visit here - there are several places to grab something to eat and drink, while taking in the spectacular views.

Plenty of room on the slopes! 4 stars
If you´re staying in the resort of Lech and you like plenty of elbow room on the slopes, you´re in luck. If youre staying elsewhere and´ want to spend a day here, you could well be out of luck. The resort has a lift-restriction policy that favours those staying in the resort. Once it´s deemed that the slopes are already hosting as many people as they comfortably can, out-of-towners on a day trip will be unable to ascend. Daytrippers may find this approach a little unfair, but it does mean that those who have paid through the nose for a holiday here (and many of the wealthy clientele have...) are really getting their money´s worth.

Apres-ski in Lech 3 stars
Apres-ski her is often described as ´refined´, which in real terms can be taken to mean ´a bit dull´. Certainly, this is not the resort for you if you´re looking for an opportunity to party every night of the week. There are some nice snow bars and a lot of good (but mostly pricey) restaurants, but things quieten down fairly early. If you hit the bars straight from the slopes, about 4pm, you´ll find the bars pretty ful - but virtually everybody has left for dinner by about 7-8pm, and it never really picks up after that. There are a handful of discos here, but they tend to cater to an older, 40 crowd, so don´t expect anythign too raucous!

Sophisticated skiing! 4 stars
Lech is renowned for being one of the most sophisticated ski resorts in Austria - in fact the local tourist board is keen to point out that Princess Diana frequently enjoyed the slopes here. It certainly reeks of opulence - from the designer-clad skiers to the abundance of 5-star hotels and restaurants. The resort itself isn´t overly snobbish though, all skiers will be made to feel welcome by the locals here, and there are a few options for those on a budget too. I shopped around in advance and found a really good three star (apologies but the name escapes me) for well below the standard rate. Lift passes can be a bit on the pricey side, but supermarkets in the village, along with some reasonably-priced pizza joints, means that eating doesn~t have to break the bank.

Lech 2 stars
During our road tip in the Alps, we made a detour past Lech in the Vorarlberg in Austria. Apparently this is one of the most luxurious ski resorts in the country. I wondered how it looks like during the ski season when fur dressed ladies with Chihuahuas stroll the streets and people in designer outfits make their way down the slopes. When we came there, the village was almost empty.

Since it was lunch time and we hadn’t eaten since breakfast, we decided to stop at a restaurant. We found a nice place by the main road in the center of Lech. Everything was good until they gave us the menu and we realised this was one of those overpriced places with bad service. We left at once and continued to Disentis instead.
