Famous ski runs

With the gondola over the Schwarzwand: whether the Langer Zug or the White Ring. The path leads from the town centre to the Rüfikopf. The fastest run into the valley is the Langer Zug, which with an 80% gradient in the upper third, is one of the steepest groomed ski runs in the world.

The world-famous White Ring also starts at the mountain station of the Rüfikopf cable car. If you get up early, you ski once around and then come back for breakfast.

Off the slopes

Not everyone who loves winter and exercise outdoors wants to ski. The good news: you will find optimal conditions and an excellent offer for alternative winter sports in Lech Zürs am Arlberg.
