Picturebook Days

back to magazine overview

There are those special days when everything is just right...

  • The weather: Bright blue sky and cold temperatures
  • The snow: finest powder without big drifts
  • The ski area: You don't have to say any more about it in Lech Zürs ;-)

Already at 08:30 am we are waiting at the Rüfikopf and can take one of the first gondolas up to the top. As soon as the sun rises there is no cloud in the sky. Accordingly, our motivation increases with every meter we move up to the head of the Rüfikopf. At the top we carry out the Pieps-Check and leave the secured slopes in the direction of Pazieltal. From the first turn down to the Trittalp cable car our grin gets wider and wider.... Wonderful powder snow spreads out over the wide slopes below us and is just waiting for us to draw our turns into the snow.

The next slopes in Zürs are also a real pleasure and each of us can make his own tracks in the fresh snow. Towards the end of our skiing day we ski on the steep slopes at Madloch down to Lech. The last few meters down towards Omesberg we look around again and review the last few hours. 

For those who would like to try out the wonderful downhill runs in deep powder snow, we recommend the ski schools and ski guides in Lech Zürs:
