Learn to ski in Lech

Situated at 1450m on the banks of the River Lech in the Austrian state of Voralberg, the ski resort of Lech may have a modest altitude but it receives up to twice as much snow as some of its French rival resorts.

Lech is c.a. 1hr away from Bregenz, 1,5hrs from Innsbruck and 2hrs from Zurich, and is part of the huge Ski Arlberg resort, which has two areas, Arlberg East and Arlberg West. Within Arlberg East are the resorts of St. Anton am Arlberg, St. Christoph am Arlberg and Stuben am Arlberg. Arlberg West encompasses the villages of Lech am Arlberg, Oberlech - which lies directly above Lech - and Zürs am Arlberg.

Fairly recently, the Arlberg West area was linked with the Warth-Schröcken ski region, resulting in Ski Arlberg becoming the largest connected ski area within Austria, with a total of 548km of pistes and more than 90 lifts.

The Lech area offers a total of 305km of pistes; 120km blue, 132km red and 27km black. The region also offers more than 200km of high alpine powder runs and the ski schools in Lech offer freestyle lessons to help skiers make the most of their off-piste adventures.

Lech lies at the foot of the Kriegerhorn mountain (2173m) with three other mountains nearby; the Rüfikopf (2362m), the Zuger Hochlicht (2377m) and the Mohnenfluh (2544m), each offering a variety of pistes at all levels.

Ski lessons for beginners in Lech

Ski schools in Lech offer private ski lessons for all ages and abilities. Private lessons ensure focused help, meaning that ski beginners can progress rapidly and successfully.

Beginners start with learning the snowplough and the glide on flat slopes within the resort. This ensures that ski novices can really focus on grasping the basics away from the main pistes and provides the optimal stress-free environment for learning to ski in Lech.

Once the first moves have been established, lessons move to slopes with a slight gradient. Ski schools in Lech use the beginner slopes close to Lech village, by the Schwarzwand, Flühen and Berghof drag lifts. The Rüfikopf lifts access further blues, over towards Stubenbach.

For beginners who want to practice after lessons, the ski schools in Lech recommend the long, blue no.38 piste, which starts at the top of the Rufikopf and is accessed directly from Lech. Intermediate skiers can try the no.38A route, which begins as a red piste but eventually joins with the no.38 blue, descending to the Trittalp chairlift base station.

Kids’ ski lessons in Lech

The ski schools in Lech offer private ski lessons to kids of all ages. Lessons are arranged either by hour, in the morning or the afternoon, or over a full day, which is generally 4- 6hrs of lessons.

First-timer lessons begin with the basics of learning how to glide and do the snowplough. The ski schools in Lech use particularly flat areas for teaching the first moves. Once these moves have been well-established, young learners are then taken to slopes with a gradient, to progress onto the next stage of learning; how to turn.

Young skiers who already have some experience are taken directly to the beginner runs above Lech; the Schlegelkopf lifts start directly in Lech and access a number of suitable blues. For intermediate skiers, the ski schools in Lech head to the area between Lech and Zürs, which has various red runs that are ideal for working on technique.

What makes learning to ski in Lech so special

Lech is stylish and charming, with great pistes and exceptional views. Hardly surprising that the resort is a favourite with the European elite - members of various royal families having been spotted at Lech on several occasions.

The White Ring Challenge in Lech is a must for expert skiers: This bucket-list route is an exhilarating 22km circuit that crosses Lech, Oberlech, Zürs & Zug and includes the highly ambitious 5km Madloch downhill run. Several ski schools in Lech offer off-piste lessons, which can definitely help to successfully tick the Challenge off the list.

With 200km of high alpine powder track, Lech is a paradise for ski-touring, the best areas being between the Kriegerhorn & the Mohnenfluh. Freestyle fans can also head to the 3,6ha Lech Snowpark, where complete beginners to seasoned pros can have their fun on the various boxes, rails and jumps.


How do we find a suitable activity?

In every ski resort you will find an overview of all available offers. On the left side you have filters to quickly find the right offer. For example, you can search specifically for beginner ski courses for children in groups.

How do we find offers for our desired date?

Under the menu item "Select course date" in the upper left corner of the page you can select a desired start date. At the top of the search results you will find the offers for the desired start date. Below follow offers in a similar period.

How do we find group lessons or private instructors?

Group courses are marked with "Group". You can search specifically for group courses by selecting the "Group" filter under the "Category" menu item. Private teachers are marked with the inscription "Private". You can search for private teachers by selecting the "Private" filter under the "Category" menu item.

How do we find offers in our language?

Under the menu item "Language" you can select a desired language. Afterwards only offers will be shown where this language is available.

When should we book?

During the holiday weeks, ski and snowboard courses are usually fully booked. In order to make sure that there is still a place available in the desired ski or snowboard course, the motto is: the sooner the better.

How do we find our appropriate experience level?

Next to the menu item "Experience level" you will find a description of the individual experience levels. If you're still not sure, you don't need to worry. Simply choose the experience level that best suits your abilities. Before the first lesson of a group course, ski schools will assess your abilities so that you can be placed in the right group. In any case, private instructors will take your abilities into account on an individual basis.

How do we find offers including equipment?

All offers including equipment are marked with the inscription "Ski rental included". If you find the inscription "Ski rental optional" you can book the equipment for this offer. You will find offers including equipment faster if you select the filter "Ski rental including" under the menu item "Popular options". Depending on the provider, an offer including equipment contains: skis, ski poles, ski boots and helmet. You will find a detailed list of the included rental items in the respective offer description.

There is no offer including equipment, where can we alternatively rent equipment?

In a ski resort there is almost without exception the possibility to rent winter sports equipment. If you book via CheckYeti, you will receive discounts from our partner Skiset, where you can conveniently reserve your equipment online.

How many participants are usually in a group?

This depends on the ski school. Some ski schools have a maximum number of participants per group. You can find this information in the descriptions of the offers.

At what age can children ski or snowboard?

There is no fixed age limit here. Supported by specially trained children's ski instructors, children can already learn to ski playfully at kindergarten age. Depending on the children's level of motoric and social development, the ideal starting age is between 4 and 5 years. Occasionally there are children who can already learn to ski at the age of 3 1/2 years.

How many days should the lessons last for our children?

During the holiday weeks, children's ski courses for beginners usually start on Sunday or Monday. The program is designed in such a way that the best learning results are achieved when your children take part in the ski course throughout the week. So they don't miss the final event (race, etc.) and experience a great week with their group. For advanced children the learning success usually kicks in on the third day.

Is it better to put our child in a group lesson or a private tuition?

The group lessons are generally recommended for beginners. Learning together with peers is more fun. The children are not constantly in the focus and have the possibility to catch their breath between the individual exercises, while the other children are on it. In order not to underchallenge highly talented children, a private ski instructor is recommended.

Can we join our child with a private instructor?

Yes, that's possible. Some providers even offer special family offers. Otherwise, you can simply book a private instructor for children or adults and inform the ski school after booking that you would like to go together.
