Nice area. Be sure to go up to the summit of the Zugspitze from Ehrwald (the next village to your east.)

The hotel says groceries and petrol stations but I'm not sure if he's talking about this specific brand.
A1 is the largest carrier in Austria. I'd be surprised if you couldn't get their SIMs in Lermoos.

Have you been topping off a few Euros to keep the SIM active or are you renewing a data bundle, like the 10 GB bundle is 15 Euros and they said it auto-renews if they find enough credit on the SIM?
I usually visit Austria at least once a year. A1 is the only carrier that offers 12 month SIM validity which is an important feature for me. That's also why I need to add credits from Canada.

I see that there are MVNOs that use the A1 network, like YESSS, which you can order online.
Yesss and the other MVNOs are cheaper if you only need 30 days of validity. I pay a premium (€20 for 5GB per year.) But if you only need the SIM for a single visit you might as well go with A1 directly.

Phones: OnePlus 5 • Nexus 5
SIMs: CA Fido/Fongo • AT • Google Fi
R.I.P.: UM • UM+
