Off-Piste Skiing on the Arlberg
The freedom of the outdoors in deep powder snow
If you are fed up with the crowded pistes, queues at the lifts and loud ski huts and want to enjoy the ultimate mountain experience, then discover the unspoilt deep powder snow slopes in Lech! 200 off-piste kilometres are waiting for you during your winter holiday in Oberlech on the Arlberg.
For the sake of health and safety in the off-piste area, the snow cover has to be very solid, that is why this adventure in Oberlech is best planned from January on. Surrounded by deep powder snow you and your guide select a run that fits your level and stamina.
It is extremely important to watch the structure of the snow cover. Only if the snow cover is stable and there is no or only a very little danger of avalanches, then you can enter the deep snow. Your guide will take care of these safety preparations and will explain you the details.
In order to be able to feel absolute freedom away from the 276km of prepared pistes, free-ski experts recommend
- Good skills on skis or snowboards
- Good stamina
- Respect of the natural environment
- Perfect gear (avalanche transceiver, probe, shovel, avalanche airbag, helmet, protectors)
- A regional guide for the best hotspots
- Deep powder-snow or freeride snowboard
Don’t underestimate this adventure. It requires a certain amount of responsible preparation and caution on the mountain. Avalanche transceiver, probe, a shovel as well as a helmet and protective gear are part of the basic equipment.
Don’t forget to respect nature and pay attention to the avalanche warnings and the weather forecast. We also recommend to not go on a ski tour without an experienced ski guide.
