Visitor Reviews of Lech

john from Guernsey writes:

We are getting prepared for our 26th year in Lech. Some years we have been twice, so we must be looking at approximately 30 visits. It is a fabulous place to ski and the locals are such lovely people. We have seen so many changes but all of which was to improve the resort for skiers. The restaurants are first class athough they are now getting rather expensive due to the exchange rate with the English pound. Lech is, without doubt, one of the best ski resorts in Austria.
