Key facts about The Lecht ski resort

SMALL but perfectly formed, the Lecht has everything you’d expect at a much larger resort and then some. Serious sport skiers will be delighted to find a race piste with timing and slalom poles, freestylers are catered for with a park when conditions allow and beginners have the luxury of a travelator – dubbed the Magic Carpet – for getting back up to the top of the nursery slopes. The Lecht is also home to an extensive snowmaking set-up: raised cannons are dedicated to the lower slopes and a mobile system covers most of the other runs. As long as it is cold enough they can pump out fresh snow.
