The Ski Resort
In the midst of the Krkonoše, the Czech Republic’s highest mountain range, is the ski resort of Špindlerův Mlýn, which boasts almost 25 kilometres of runs. The ski area is made up of the sub-areas Svatý Petr, Hromovka, Medvědín, Horní Mísečky and Labaská, which are all interconnected by a free ski bus service.
The broad 7.3 kilometre blue-marked groomers here are particularly well suited to beginners. If you are already more confident on your skis then you can explore 14.1 kilometres of intermediate trails, while advanced skiers can look forward to 3.2 kilometres of black-marked runs. Around 85 percent of these beautifully-groomed, varied runs can also be prepared with snow-making equipment, ensuring that on-piste conditions are ideal throughout the winter. 16 lifts carry skiers and snowboarders up to an altitude of 1,235 m, offering up an outstanding view over the peaks of the Krkonoše mountains.
The Funtrack Hromovka is the place where freestyle fans can get their adrenaline fix, with various features to try out and explore. In addition, Svatý Petr is home to the Czech Republic’s largest halfpipe.
There are four children’s areas spread across the ski area where young guests can learn the ropes in fun surroundings. Professional instructors are on hand from three local ski schools to help them on their way, while specially-designed magic carpet lifts carry the youngsters safely and conveniently up the hill.
