We started in Lech, going to Zuers and back to Lech. Not everywhere it is good marked, or I am blind, so is better to have map in pocket. Great is that you can ride the whole circle on different slopes..if u dont turn bad as we :) Be carefull when u go down from the top Madloch-Joch. The slope is marked as the snow path..it was in shadow, totally frozen, with humps, narrow, I really hated it, it was quite dangerous..if you are not good skier, rather avoid this place.

Only reason not to give 5* is that the ring requires you to use a ski route that is not officially prepared and so ungraded. This makes if hard for Intermediate skiers to know if they can cope with the circuit that can otherwise be done on well prepared blue runs.

We just came back from staying in Lech and while we were there heard about the Weisse Ring, which of course we had to try! Before I go into details of the route we took, it's worth saying that unless you are trying to do this swiftly, take your time and enjoy doing some extra runs along the way, otherwise you will feel like you are just on lifts the whole time.

Starting from Lech, we took the Rufikopf gondola over the mountain, where you can either go down a blue or red run to the Schuttboden t-bar drag lift. Then your only (on-piste) option is a fun blue run (185) down to the Trittalp ski lift. From there it's either a blue, red or mix of the two to get down into Zurs for either the Seekopf or Zursersee lifts. *If you want to get in some runs do that on this side of the mountain before "crossing the street" over to Seekkopf/Zursersee.

Once at the top of these, it's a quick run down the 165 red to the Madloch lift. *a few notes here - get in some runs on this side of the mountain before heading to the Madloch lift. Second, the 165 red starts steep and you need all the speed you can get, as this connection rises and falls, and you'll still end up "walking". So be prepared! Lastly, the Madloch lift is an older, open lift so if the weather is crap you'll feel it.

Once off the Madloch you can warm up with some fun red runs! The 170-171-172 are all very skiable as you make your way down to Zug and the Zugerberg lift. At a few points they even offer an "easy" option if you are feeling tired or a bit too challenged. The Zugerberg lift is the last one, and again it's an older, open 2 seater so bundle up if needed.

Once off you can take a quick town via the Balmengrat (a red rope running along a flat section of the 200 blue, so do use it), then once you reach the proper start of the 200 blue you can take that all the way back down into Lech, or throw in a few reds (not many to choose from).

And that's it, you've done it!

Gentle slopes or the hard way. You choose. Nice spots to relax, eat or drink. Could be a nice way to improve your skills.

Try to avoid using the Madloch chairlift early afternoon, it can be very busy and is the slowest way of transportation in the Arlberg region. Great off piste though skiing down from there to Zug. Otherwise you will find better slopes in the area.

...to be the first in the morning or at least among the first on the famous Madloch run. After skiing extensively in St. Moritz, Verbier, Zermatt, I have to say that the Madloch run in the morning is the most impressive run ever. Also you can leave the piste nearly anywhere to enjoy some fresh powder.

The White ring is a must - but you have to be a good skier.
The round leads you from Lech via Cable car to the Rüfikopf to Zürs and from there via Madloch to Zug. From Zug you go back to Lech via Kriegerhorn lift.
I strongly recommend NOT to do it between 11 am and 3 pm on a sunny day. Some lifts are horrible bottlenecks with long time in the queue.

Quite possibly the most scenic experience one could have in the Alps. For us it was very challenging as lower intermediate skiers. One run in particular, 170, was a "red diamond", very steep, a bit icy, a bit mogul-y, but it was the only way through to the next lift. We felt a great sense of accomplishment upon completion (about 2 and a half hours of actual skiing), especially after seeing one skier being airlifted by helicopter at the beginning of the hardest part of the trail. Thankfully we succeeded without incident or injury.

Like all these famous ski routes, the terrain usually includes quite a lot of flat areas which catch you out if you're not familiar with them. Our hotel manager gave us some great tips to make the most of the stunning scenery.
Worth doing. Takes 3 hours and once started you have to see it through to the end.

We had a great day out doing the Weisse Ring which any intermediates and above should be capable of. It's well signposted and the only demanding bit is the decent to Zug. Great views of the mountains and modern lifts too.
