Winter Events At Lech Zürs In Ski Arlberg
From December 7-18, the “Arlberg Weinberg event” will once again invite gourmets, winemakers and wine lovers to Lech Zürs. Thanks to its exquisite culinary delights, Lech Zürs was named a “World Gourmet Village” (the leading restaurants in Lech Zürs have been awarded a total of 54 Gault&Millau toques), so it was wise to also set new standards by establishing an outstanding wine culture. This all came to fruition with the “Arlberg Weinberg event”, first held in 2015. With more than 25 events, everything revolves around wines and food.
The legendary “Der Weisse Ring (“The White Ring”) race is January 21, 2023. More than 1,000 athletes compete in a duel between professionals and amateurs. They must all master 22 kilometres and 5,500 meters of ascents and descents. The route includes the six ski runs that connect Lech, Zürs, Zug and Oberlech.
Two days prior, on January 19, skis will be waxed for the “REMUS Team Challenge,” which will be held as a Super G in the Flexenarena in Zürs. As a special reward, the 20 fastest competitors in the REMUS race will be awarded a preferential starting place in the “White Ring” race.
The first two weeks of April is the Tanzcare Arlberg Music Festival. This is a mix of swing, big band, electro swing, pop, funk, soul and more. Bands play on the sun terraces and in the ski huts.
The Ski Arlberg App
The area’s app serves as a guide and covers the extensive ski area. It details the latest weather and snow reports, and provides up-to-date information about cable cars, lifts and ski runs. With the help of the Ski Arlberg app’s navigation system, people can plan their own routes by setting departure points, intermediate stops and the final destination. With its integrated tracking function, legendary ski circuits such as the “RUN of FAME”, “Der Weisse Ring” and the cult ski race “The White Thrill” can also be recorded (including measuring speeds) and you can automatically enter into competitions.
