Leave a Comment on Dreaming of a Winter Vacation in Lech

Small chalets with pitched roofs and also painted facades, a small river that flows through the valley surrounded by the vast mountains of the Arlberg – Welcome to the winter wonderland Lech. Staying in the idyllic ski mountain village for vacation means creating true winter fairy tales. I have a hard time putting down into words what I was feeling when I was the first time riding the slopes from the top of the mountains. When you hear nothing but the snow under your skis and your own breath. This stillness will also captivate you within no time and brings another perspective in to your life.

Going on vacation to Lech, is our family tradition and something to be excited for all year long. We come here also for so many reasons: the endless-seaming perfectly prepared slopes, alpine off-the-slopes lifestyle, countless number of top-notch restaurants surrounded by the breathtaking views. It is the authenticity and retained character the area has to offer.

Today, the Arlberg is undisputedly the cradle of alpine skiing. For me Skiing was not love at first sight, I also really had to concentrate overcoming fears first. And now, after some years of practice, I would call myself a confident beginner and every time I get the chance to ride another slope, I also feel my expertise building a little.

On the road to Lech, we decided this time to take another path, from Stuben to Lech, that showed us the Flexenpass, which is the only road through a mountain pass to Lech, from another perspective. Actually, that was by far one of my most spontaneous shots from the window of our car that turned out a stunning picture and a great memory of our vacation.

What to wear on a Winter Vacation in Lech

Of course it wouldn’t be an exciting ski trip for me without enjoying some time off the slopes. When it comes to packing the right things for a winter trip, the ski style is almost as important as the skis. But when it comes to dressing fashionably in a cold weather it can be tricky, but it’s not impossible. You might also think going for cozy knits and warm ski underwear is all you need. Essentially, the most important clothing in a winter vacation are the right shoes! It was the thing I was probably not considering in the first row, but without a solid footwear you’re freezing your buns off in the massive amounts of snow.

So also I started creating an outfit from bottom-up with finding my perfect alpine outfit, after I got the most comfortable and stylish winter boots in my favourite clothing boutique „Strolz“ in Lech. Glittering snow and brilliant blue sky, the mountains concentrate in its also beauty on a few colors. So did I with my all-over white alpin chic retro inspired outfit.

My casual evening Look

After a long day in the mountains you can look forward to a true culinary firework. From traditional to international fusion, all the way to exquisite haute cuisine. Whatever you’re up to, it’s gonna be a gourmet highlight. Not only because of this, also Lech/Zürs was awarded the title ‘World Gourmet Village’ in 2008. Check also the weather conditions before you’re taking any other shoes besides your snow boots with you. If there is snowfall predicted during your stay, probably you’re not gonna need any other footwear. On our trip we also had the luck to have enough snow in the mountains and roads free of snow. That’s why I found some space for my Susanna Boots in my luggage.

In the evenings, bars and clubs attract partygoers with cool DJs and drinks. When you’re a hardliner (not me anymore) get ready to dance the night away and celebrate until the early morning! One drink for Après Ski at Krone is a must – but I won’t go for more, because I also can’t wait for the next beautiful day to enjoy!
