Late in summer, when we can smell the first snow, it is time to do our first snow-voodoo-dance. Our crystal clear rivers, mountain lakes and colorful mountain hillsides turn into the legendary Arlberg Ski Resort. Into over 350km of perfectly groomed slopes and 97 chair lifts will take you up to dizzy heights. Hotel Lech + Residence Chesa Rosa is located at the heart of the Arlberg Ski Resort. Come by - we are looking forward to welcome you!
In german "Berg" means mountain. Therefore a common misconception is that the "Arlberg" is a mountain it's not, it is the name of the area. It stands for high quality skiing with 8 interconnected ski resorts. What the Arlberg can offer you? The question should be what the Arlberg can't offer you - even heliskiing in Lech am Arlberg!
The Arlberg is ever evolving. Its history over the past hundreds of years has been one of visionaries. You might ask yourself how skiing actually got to a remote, poor mountain village. It is the story of a priest from a neighboring village. Walking through the deep, deep snow was impossible, but he needed to get to Lech. He read about two wooden pieces of wood that you strap to your feed to make traveling on snow how lot easier and safer. Somewhere way up North in Sweden... There was the priest skiing across from village to the other.
Only a few years later in the 1920's when skiing was slowly but surely becoming an industry a new man with a vision was in the spotlight: Hannes Schneider. Inventor of the world wide renowned "Arlberg Ski Style" and founder of the "Arlberg Skiclub".
In 1937 the very first chair lift of Austria was build in tiny little Zürs. The rest of the story is - as we like to say in German "Geschichte", loosely translated "the rest is history", which means a good and well known story.
Vision + tradition combined with high quality. That is what the Arlberg stands for. This is the winter holiday that you deserve in Hotel Lech + Residence Chesa Rosa in Lech am Arlberg.
After our freshly brewed coffee and our breakfast buffet has strengthened you, you are ready for the Arlberg Ski Resort. The ski pass we already organized for you, your ski boots are prewarmed in the boots room and your skis are impatiently waiting in their warm ski room. Within a few minutes walks you are in town center where the chair lifts leave from. There are only short ways, short waiting times - it simply enjoyable. While you are out in the snow, we are busy baking fresh home made cakes and pies, and chopping wood for the open fire place for a relaxed Après Ski.
