Janske Lazne(640m) is a spa town in the North of the Czech Republic, at the foot of the Cerna Hora mountain close to the border with Poland. With only 15km of marked runs (5 blue and 4 red) it nonetheless offers some of the longest slopes in the Czech Republic from 1275m down to 640m. It is a friendly ski area and a little less touristy that the other resorts in the Giant Mountains although this could change as there has been continued investment in the area in the last few years, including a new 6 seater high speed chairlift. It is ideal for beginners and lower intermediates who are not looking for a huge ski area but rather some pretty, tree lined slopes.
For those who want to try some more pistes the ski pass for the area also covers Pec Pod Snezkou (13km of marked runs) which can be reached by ski bus, as well as some other smaller local resorts.
The 1.6km Protez piste offers night skiing from 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm, and there is a 3.5km sledge run on the mountain.
