Zürs is best suited for intermediate skiers and snowboarders
Zürs has good snow virtually guaranteed. It is almost on the Flexen Pass, ten minutes’ drive towards St. Anton from Lech.
Small, exclusive Zürs hides behind the Flexen-Pass, snow-white mountain slopes surrounding it. It is a meeting place for the international jet set, who have appreciated the ski resort for decades as a discrete winter domicile.
Thanks to its wide, treeless, deep snow slopes, it is a prime destination for traditional off-piste skiing.
The village of only 150 inhabitants is also home to the hangar for adventurous heli-skiing tours that are unique in Austria. An expert guide can accompany you and other experienced winter sports enthusiasts, so you take part in these extraordinary tours. You will have the most incredible tales to tell about the stylish bars and trendy clubs. For example, the pulsating nightlife is truly worthy of its name.
There is a collective desire for the Arlberg region. That’s why Zürs rose to be Austria’s No. 1 ski resort and No. 5 worldwide.
The respective characters of Lech, Zürs, Stuben, St. Christoph and St. Anton am Arlberg may be different. However, their enthusiasm for skiing and uncompromising commitment to quality have united the five villages since the beginning of the 20th Century. The ski culture has been ever-present for almost 100 years. The region got its status as “Birthplace of Alpine Skiing” because of a long and rich tradition. A common dream was shared by the people on the east and the west of Arlberg. With the construction of the new Flexenbahn lift between Zürs and Stuben/Alpe Rauz, the Trittkopfbahn I and II, as well as the Albonabahn II, this vision recently turned into reality.
Nightlife is quiet. There’s a disco in the Edelweiss hotel and a piano bar in the Alpenhof. Mathie’s-Stuble and Kaminstuble are worth trying, as is Vernissage, at the Skiclub Alpenrose, which is skiers consider to be the best nightspot in town.
Serious dining means Zürserhof and Lorunser. Make sure your wallet will stand a visit before you go – credit cards are not accepted. For something cheaper try spaghetti in the basement of the Edelweiss. Princess Caroline (who stays at the Lorunser) once appeared here at 5 am.
Zürs has its own school, but many of the instructors are booked for the entire season by regular clients, and more than 80 percent of them are hired privately. The resort also has its own kindergarten.
