The Arlberg, in the far eastern section of Austria, is home to all the top classy resorts that the country has to offer. Lech and Zürs are two of them, along with their close neighbours Stuben, St Christoph and St Anton. Lech is linked via lifts with Zürs, and between them make without doubt, Austria’s number one poncy retreat.
Year in, year out, this high altitude resort attracts numerous royals along with the finest from the film and pop world - and all the arse-lickers they can muster to join them. Skiers come here to be seen, not to ski, so while they pose you can ruin their immaculate slopes, and tackle some great freeriding terrain. Don’t be surprised to see poodles dressed in tartan, Ferraris everywhere and by the end of the week you’ve probably got piles from the heated lift seats. However away from that, you’ll release why Robot Food and Absinthe films come here to do the filming for their latest films, and it’s the only place in Austria you can try heliboarding.
