The Czech Tourist Authority's overview of skiing and snowboarding resorts around the country
In the past, several resorts have been selected to host prestigious sports events, including the skiflying World Cup (Harrachov) and the Golden Ski cross-country event (Nové Město na Moravě).
There are ski and snowboard schools in every skiing centre, and ski rentals are also available.
The highest plains and mountain ranges, where meadows alternate with pine forests, offer perfect conditions for trekking and offer beautiful views of the surrounding area.
All ski centers are equipped with ski lifts and visitors of all abilities will be able to find a slope to suit them. The conditions are suitable for everyone from beginners to professionals, and adults and children can both take advantage of ski courses led by qualified instructors (also available in English and German).
As well as dedicated, professionally equipped snowboarding centers, many regular ski slopes are also available to snowboarders. Many snowboarding centers also organize courses catering to boarders of all ages.
Most of the Czech Republic's winter resorts are located in national parks or protected areas. The choice is grand indeed. Visitors can choose between the best-known and most popular resort, Krkonoše, which offers excellent infrastructure and equipment, and one of the lesser-known ski centers tucked away in romantic corners of Šumava, Orlické hory, Jizerské hory, Jeseníky or Beskydy. The big difference in the level of equipment and services offered here is reflected in the prices.
The Krkonoše Mountains are the highest and the most popular Bohemian range. The main skiing centres: Špindlerův Mlýn, Pec pod Sněžkou, Harrachov, and Rokytnice nad Jizerou.
