White Ring Lech-Zürs-Zug-Oberlech

22 km, 5,500 m of altitude difference: the White Ring on the Arlberg

Without a doubt, the White Ring is one of the most impressive ski round tours in the Alps, putting skiers from all over the world under its spell for more than 50 years. The 22 km long ski round tour, which you can start in Lech, offers you gorgeous panoramic vantage points and the ski villages of Zürs, Zug and Oberlech.

The creator of this unique ski round tour on Arlberg, Sepp Bildstein, understood perfectly how to plan the ascents and downhills in a manner to allow you an impressive view of the mountains around Lech. Ski fun is combined with the enjoyment of nature – downhills, vantage points and ascents with aerial tramways, chairlifts and T-bar lifts alternate.
