- Sleeps 18 - 19
- Catered chalet
Chalet Alpenland is an attractive,
modern Tyrolean chalet boasting a spacious living area
with satellite TV and a separate light, airy dining area. The
bedrooms are all a good size and are comfortably furnished, some of which have balconies with fantastic views over the valley. The chalet sauna is a
great place to unwind & relax after a great day on the slopes.
The chalet is next to the Zugerbahn Chairlift, giving direct access to
the magnificent Lech ski area. Intermediate/advanced skiers can enjoy
skiing back to the chalet door whilst beginners simply need to take the regular free ski bus into Lech for their lessons,
which takes five minutes (approx.). The service currently runs until 3am
(small charge in the evening) so that you can enjoy the atmosphere,
tradition and sheer decadence of Lech town itself.
Snow boots and easy
to carry bags are needed for arrival as the steep access to the chalet
can be very snowy.

Lech Resort Info
Lech, at the centre of the Arlberg ski area, is one of the most exclusive ski venues in Austria. Along with its neighbour, Zurs, this is where high society goes for a winter break. There are expensive hotels, shops and top-rated eateries, in a picture-postcard village that's set in a beautiful wooded valley. The après-ski is lively, but tends to cater for the chic, older crowd, which thrives in Lech. Off-snow activities can often take up more time than the skiing itself.
This doesn't actually bear any relation to the quality of the skiing… With a combined total of 260km of lift- and bus-linked runs, there is plenty for all. Lech itself favours intermediates, while experts have lots of off-piste when the snow is good. They also have St Anton for more advanced challenges. Snow reliability is good and, just in case, there are extensive snowmaking facilities. For beginners, there is a top-rated ski school and a very gentle nursery slope in the centre of the village which is ideal for young children. For boarders Lech is a great place for learners and intermediates (there is a park and a half-pipe). One thing that Lech particularly prides itself on is its lack of queues. This is due to a good lift system, but also because there is a limit of 14,000 skiers on the mountain at any one time.
Overall, Lech offers some great, varied skiing, but tends to attract the same people year after year. If your mortgage is flexible, Lech is wonderful, but you'll find Zurs even more exclusive…

Snow Overview - Austria (snow news updated 27-Mar-2017)
There was nothing but glorious sunshine across Austria on Monday 27th March. The temperature rose once again, and the spring weather is certainly starting to take its toll on ever decreasing base depths.
Good skiing remains up high in the Arlberg region at Lech/Zurs (65/155cm) and St Anton/St Christoph (50/280cm), but by the afternoon it was more of a t shirt and sun deck type of day.
A couple of our featured resorts are now closed for the season. Seefeld, St Wolfgang and St Johann have all stopped operating, but for the nearest skiing to the latter, look to the likes of Kitzbuhel (48/92cm) where 43/57 lifts where still spinning on Monday.
Expect the skies to remain sunny for the majority of the week, and conditions are likely to deteriorate as a result. The weekend is likely to bring a change in the weather, with a band of low pressure forecast to move over and bring some rain.
European Weather Outlook
Spring has well and truly arrived across the European Alps range. Widespread sunshine and warm temperatures are forecast this week, although parts of Switzerland may be cloudy tomorrow. Currently there is no fresh snow forecast until the weekend, when moderate to heavy snow may come to parts of Switzerland, Italy and France.
In the Pyrenees light snow and rain is currently falling, weather conditions will remain changeable until the weekend when moderate snow is forecast for the region. Finally in the far north Nordic area conditions will remain the normal pattern of light snow and dull weather.
