Epic Lech Ski Trip with SNOW Magazine

Known as the cradle of Alpine skiing, the Arlberg mountain range is one of the most sought-after ski destinations in the world. It is also home to the largest connected ski resort in Austria (which is one of the top-five largest ski resorts in the world), joining the renowned towns of Lech, St. Anton, St. Christoph, Stuben, Zürs, Warth-Schröcken and Oberlech. On this powder-packed Insider Journey, which will be based in Lech, you will access the crème de la crème of Arlberg skiing—in the company of Indagare Ambassador and SNOW Magazine representative Lisa Baker, as well as world-class skiers, mountaineers and local guides Mike Perl and Nina Gigele, who will coach you on daily skiing or snowboarding sessions down legendary slopes. Exhilarating mornings on the mountain will be followed by delicious meals at top restaurants—and, of course, après-ski, with views of blanketed peaks, and time to explore on your own.

A spot on this trip may be reserved with a 50% non-refundable deposit, per person, with the remaining balance to be paid in full by November 15, 2022.
