Full review

My wife and I have skiied in Lech for 35 years. We have stayed in Hotels in Lech and Oberlech alwas with Half Board. Breakfasts are always abundant and varied. Are simply not seen in USA hotels. We prefer hotels with excellent Spas----to include Saunas Swimming pools whirlpools etc. get over the nudity fear!!!
In bad weather one can take long walks to prepared paths [snow shoes not needed] to Zug for lunch. lang laufen prepared trails for the X country crowd.
Shopping, especially at the Stroltz store where one can have perfectly fitted boots made.
From Zurich Airport take the Arlberg Express directly to the "downtown" drop off where the hotels wait to pick you up.
Then THE SKIING Lech to Zurs to St Christof to St Anton and back to Lech-------an unforgettable experience. All Intermediate level accessable!!!
We prefer end of February early March - But avoid the Children's week---- your Hotel knows which week that is.
And we don't see Levis on the mountain!!!.]
Dress for dinner can be casual with nice jeans or jackets and ties if you prefer. I've stopped taking a jacket---a nice sweater does fine.
Have fun in Lech
