The Czech Republic is perhaps not the first place you think of when you plan a ski holiday but it offers a number of small, good value resorts dotted along its mountain ranges, which though not as high as those in France, Italy et al offer some great skiing, and are especially suited to beginners and lower intermediates. Those looking for endless kilometers of pistes should look elsewhere, but for those looking for pretty, tree lined slopes and good value for money this is a great option.
Our Czech Republic ski holidays were featured in The Guardian because of their great value. Janske Lazne is a unique tourist and spa centre in the east of the Giant Mountains close to the Polish border. The resort offers a total of 20km of pistes so it’s ideal for short ski holidays.
