Great Ski Area when the weather is good.
In any weather that isn’t perfect they the lifts

If the sun is shining a great area (but then most ski areas are great in the sun). But if weather is marginal, poor or bad forget it. Lifts close too easily reducing each village to a tiny resort with awful old lift infrastructure and unacceptable queues. For example Lech has an antiquated 2 man slow chairlift and 1x drag lift if there is any medium to strong wind - and that’s it ( for 300 Euros for a 6 day pass). Strong winds and they close all of it. (The cable car to OberLech isn’t really to get to skiing). Zürs is the same. 2 baby drag lifts and a chair lift with a height difference of around 100m. For a supposed “World Class Resort” they are years behind the French Resorts in opening up after storms. Be very careful when considering a ski holiday here. If the weather is marginal or poor then you will be wasting your money and would get much better value nearly any where else. I’ve skied many times in France, the USA and Canada and the Lech/Zürs region was by far the worst when dealing with bad weather. This not a “World Class” resort because of this failing. They even had the arrogance to highlight “40cm of new Powder” on main page of their App when all of the lifts were shut.
