Lech and neighbouring Zürs are the most exclusive resorts in Austria. Not only do these villages attract the rich and famous to their portfolio of six five-star hotels, but they also quite literally exclude skiers from the slopes when they consider these to be full. As soon as 14,000 tickets have been sold the tills are closed. Priority is given to those skiers who are staying in the resort, although Arlberg lift passes issued in St Anton and St Christoph are still valid.
