Day 5: Getting back from Lech to St Anton, via Zurs…

By on March 6, 2014 in Austria

The best way to get back from Lech to St Anton, in my opinion, is to catch the main cable car out of Lech (the cable car is across the road from the main ski area in Lech) and then ski down to Zurs….

It is really worth the effort as Zurs is a fantastic little ski area with some great runs down to the road, however, be warned, you cannot ski straight from the top of the cable car down to the road where the St Anton bus will take you back to Stuben, but instead you have to zig-zag around the Zurs area using one lift, and a drag, to finally get a run that takes you down to the village.

Fantastic...

Fantastic…

Finally, once down in the village of Zurs the bus takes you back to Stuben (you have to get off the bus in Stuben or catch a ‘post bus’ to St Anton), where you can get a 6 man chair (you have to use a drag to get up from the road to the lift) back in to the main St Anton ski area.
