Are you thinking about where to go for snow this year? Go to the Czech mountains! We will tell you what is in store for you during the 2018/2019 winter season.

Did you know that the Czech Republic is completely surrounded by border mountains? The mountains here are not as high as the Alps.

You will find an overview of news that the ski resorts have prepared for skiers during this winter season below.
This year, a record number of cableways have been built – a total of 8 transport facilities, which have actually replaced the original, obsolete ski lifts. Visitors can look forward to a nearly one kilometre long four-seat cableway with a bubble at Tanvald's Peak. Other cableways were also built in the Krkonoše (Giant), Jeseníky and Beskydy Mountains.

This winter, the resort will try its Snowsat GPS technology, which enables more economical and effective slope treatment, ensuring skiers a higher surface quality on the slopes. In terms of other news from the Krkonoše, it is also worth mentioning the expansion of the Horní Mísečky Snow Park not far from Špindlerův Mlýn.
