Ski Holidays in Czech Republic
Czechoslovakia doesn't always spring to mind when you are considering your next ski holiday. There are no high mountains here that would compete with the Alps, but it's cheap, uncrowded and offers convenient transfers. Check out what it has to offer and you may be surprised.
Why Ski in Czechoslovakia?
One of the main advantages of Czechoslovakia is the great value it represents, so if you are tired of feeling ripped off in some of the better known European resorts this could be great for you. You will quite simply pay a lot less than elsewhere for ski passes, to accommodation and eating out. It's also relatively easy to get to and great if you want to combine your skiing with a visit to Prague, as many of the ski slopes are very close to the city.
In addition to this it offers uncrowded slopes, open spaces and is particularly great for cross country skiers, offering an amazing 520km of cross country trails. But probably the funniest benefit is that it actively promotes itself a a great place to ski if you are not a good skier! You certainly wont find any smart posers here!
