Ski down Ještěd in the shadow of a UFO!
How would you enjoy gliding down perfectly groomed slopes in the shadow of one of the most original buildings in the Czech Republic? You can find out at the Ještěd Sports Centre. Here you will find a modern ski area, a snow park on a European standard, a cross-country circuit which has hosted the Nordic World Ski Championships, a ski rental facility, and a children’s play area. So put on your skis and enjoy a proper winter holiday in North Bohemia!
A popular winter sport resort can be found on the slopes of Ještěd Mountain and Černý Vrch (meaning Black Hill). Whether you are a complete beginner or ski like a true professional, you will find a slope on Ještěd to meet your needs. You can choose from twelve slopes of differing levels of difficulty totalling more than 9 kilometres in length.
On skis or a snowboard
Do you prefer snowboarding? Then the Ještěd Sports Centre is an ideal destination. One of the hot new offerings is the snow park at Nové Pláně. You can test your skills here on eleven obstacle courses for beginners and advanced boarders. Thanks to excellent planning, the obstacle courses offer the perfect blend of adrenaline and safety and are the site for competitions and gatherings of snowboarding enthusiasts. You can ride down to the snow park from Ještěd’s slopes.
Excellent service for you and your children
What would make your day on the slopes even more enjoyable? Perhaps perfect service. That, too, can be found here. You can make use of the equipment rental, ski and snowboard school, or specialists who will take care of your skis. If you are spending your winter holidays with children and they are not interested in skiing, you can use the services of the children’s play area. While you enjoy swift descents, experienced babysitters will keep them perfectly entertained directly on the slopes.
Where else to go?
You have given your body a nice workout, so how would you like to cap off your day? Why not go into nearby Liberec, which you can reach easily by tram? There you can explore the beautiful city hall, whose design was inspired by its more famous Viennese sister, or you can unwind at the Babylon wellness centre and aquapark! Be sure also to visit the world-famous Ještěd Hotel and transmission tower, which stands guard over the entire region. At first sight, it seems that an alien spaceship has landed on top of the highest peak in the range.
