Ski Czech Republic – Czech ski resorts

Ski holidays in Czech Republic

Czech Republic Ski Czech Republic - Czech ski resorts

While the Czech Republic doesn’t have the highest mountains or best slopes in Europe, there are plenty of ski resorts in the country, stretching from the German-Czech border to throughout Moravia. Intensive skiers are likely to look elsewhere, though: the Austrian Alps, for example, are a nine hour car ride from Prague, and boast competitive prices for skiing and lodging (though food – eating out – and other goods will be more expensive) and some of the best all-around skiing in Europe.

The average height of a mountain in the Alps is nearly twice that of the tallest mountain in the Czech Republic, and the resorts are also best equipped for sport. For fun, however, there’s no shortage of places to ski in the Czech Republic, some of which are just an hour from Prague.

Skiing in the Czech Republic has a number of pros, such as the prices, which are still lower than in most parts of the EU, but on the other hand the Czech peaks do not reach such altitudes as in the Alps. One of the other negative points about Czech skiing is the amount of time one must spend in line. While this can still occur, most resorts are rapidly improving this situation. Nevertheless, the Czech mountains are a perfect destination for your family holiday, offering a vast range of activities from skiing to tobogganing and skating.

There are over 200 ski resorts and centres in the Czech Republic providing ski and snowboard possibilities. Moreover, Czech ski centres are undergoing constant modernisation: before this winter season alone, annual owners’ investments amounted to about billion crowns. Resorts are usually of a high standard, with over 25 resorts being four or five stars.

Many Czech ski resorts are now equipped with modern facilities and well prepared slopes and cross-country routes for everyone from beginners to experienced skiers. In Špindleruv Mlyn there is an annual World Cup competition in alpine skiing disciplines.

If you want to have fun and action in winter you should come to ski in Czech Republic one day. With its numerous mountains of medium heights it offers really good conditions for winter sports of all kinds.

The beautiful ski areas of Czech Republic are open for everyone and have all the modern facilities that are really excellent. There are great tracks, miles of cross-country skiing, sledging and tobogganing. You will also find a great number of ski schools, towing and chair lifts, and ski rentals.
Wonderful restaurants and bars invite to après-ski. Here you can relax after practicing in winter sports.

The most wonderful ski resorts in Czech Republic can be found in the Giant Mountains. There both advanced skiers and beginners have a possibility to have great time during their ski vacation. The most popular cities among the skiers there are Pec pod Snezkou, Rokytnice nad Jizerou, Cerna Hora, Spindleruv Mlyn and Harrachov.

There is a special pass that is valid for skiers both in Pec pod Snezkou and in Cerna Hora. The Skiarena over there has got 20 km of slopes, 3 chair lifts and 22 lifts. There are also ski buses there that connect the two places.

Skiing in the Czech Republic is really great because nowhere else you will find such beautiful extensive cross-country routes as here. All cross-country trails are also perfectly signposted and frequently go across the ridges.

The Jizerske Mountains are famous for skiing. There are miles of groomed trails and annual “Jizerska 50” races held on the famous “Magistrale”.

Skiing in Czech Republic is also well suited for families. The Bohemian Forest also offers a relaxing environment, peace and unique nature. These are exactly the things needed for family vacation!

Sumava, Zadov, Spicak and Kramolín are the slopes that are varied from easy up to moderate complexity level. Experienced skiers would rather prefer skiing in winter on the mountain Spicak. Besides, skiing in Czech Republic means relaxation. In the Ore Mountains and the Jeseniky Mountains there are relaxing hot springs that are surrounded by numerous slopes and trails. Cervenohorske sedlo, the Klepacov area and the area Ramzova belong to the most famous ski areas in the Jeseniky Mountains.
