About the Mountains near Lech

Most of the slopes are treeless with the lower runs below Oberlech being the exception. The Blue runs back to the village are steep and not suitable for the beginner. There is easy access to the tougher slopes of St Anton and other Alberg resorts but very few tough pistes so most expert skiers should go off piste and on other ski routes. Most of the tougher runs in the resort are unpatrolled which are not avalanched protected and should only be skied on when accompanied by a guide.
