The Czech ski area of Klínovec continues its lift modernization with an investment of €6 million in a new chair lift and the improvement of snow-making facilities. We've put together all the new features in the Czech Republic's largest ski resort for the 2019-2020 season.
More convenience, more capacity
Its location near the German border as well as its proximity to the ski resort of Oberwiesenthal make Klínovec a popular destination for German skiers. Last year, the ski center had already opened a new slope connection to Boží Dar-Neklid, making it the largest resort in the Czech Republic (>> more information on the fusion).
For the 2019-2020 season, Klínovec is set to unveil another improvement. The old three-person chair lift, Dámská, was replaced by a more modern 4-person lift. The name will remain unchanged. With protective covers and heated seats, the new Dámská lift will offer more comfort than its predecessor. Klínovec was the first Czech ski resort to install lifts with protective covers, the new chair lift already being the third of its kind.
Offene Lifte und Pisten
The new construction will be able to transport visitors at a speed of five meters per second – twice as fast as the old one. The ride time will be cut in half from ten minutes to about four minutes and 40 seconds. At the same time, the lift's detachability gives skiers more time to get on and off the lift. The Dámská beginner slope around the lift was already broadened last year.

Nearly 6€ million spent on modernization
A total of about 150 million Czech crowns, which converts to about €5.8 million, was spent on improvements. €4.3 million alone were invested in the new chair lift, the rest being used to enhance the snow-making systems.
Due to these large investments, adult day passes will be a little more expensive this season. Peak season day passes will cost 850 crowns (~€33) instead of 790 crowns (~€31). Prices for children's day passes remain the same.
