Winter in the Ore Mountains

Loučná po Klínovcem is frequented by skiers, snowboarders, cross country skiers and sledgers in the winter. Also lovers of snow kiting, snow tubing and ski alpinism will enjoy their stay.

Klínovec Ski Resort is the biggest ski centre in the Ore Mountains and one of the best and top quality ski centres in the Czech Republic. Klínovec slopes will satisfy both beginners and experienced skiers.

Starting from winter 2018/2019 the Klínovec Summit is newly connected with the lower station of cableway at Neklid and from Neklid to the lower station of Prima Express cableway. Hence, Klínovec is newly connected with the slopes at Boží Dar and is offering excellent snow conditions on 31.5 km of slopes of various levels and covering 73 ha with 80% of the snow being made artificially.

Fichtelberg Ski Resort is the biggest resort in the German part of Ore Mountains. Together with Klínovec Ski Resort it is called INTERSKIREGION. It has 9 slopes and a snow park.

If you prefer cross-country over downhill skiing, there are dozens of kilometres of groomed cross-country skiing tracks. Their condition and up-to-date information about them can be found at web pages of skiing track of Karlovy Vary region. We even close roads and change them into skiing tracks for you.

Do you not fancy skiing every day? Let’s go and test the sleigh. There is bobsleigh track in the Klínovec and Oberwiesenthal Ski Resorts that is 1.8 km long and easy accessible with a cableway.

Summer in the Ore Mountains

Mountains are attractive also in the summer, mainly to those who hate suffocating, tropical summer heat in cities. In the mountains, there is always fresh air, even when the temperatures are high. Hence, you can do sports even on hot days. We recommend a trip to the Klínovec Summit, where you can enjoy the day in trail park with trail for experienced as well as beginners, both for bikers and scooters, and return with the cableway. This is a whole-day experience full of adrenaline.

If you do not wish ride bikes or scooters anymore, you can enjoy trails in the forests. The Ore Mountains are different from Šumava or the Giant Mountains that are crowded with tourists; here you are almost alone in the forest without anybody disturbing you. You can pick mushrooms, blueberries or raspberries, we have it all in large quantities.

Close to the guesthouse is a rope centre, where the youngest must overcome 7 obstacles and adults 10 high obstacles with a rope slide.

If you want to see the surroundings, you can visit Child Jesus Trail in the town of Boží Dar. Child Jesus’s short trail is meant for small children and it is 5,600 m long; the long trail is meant for experienced trackers and it is 12,900 m long. There are several stops along the trail marked with small houses where interesting tasks must be completed.

You can also try the summer bobsleigh track in Oberwiesenthal. It is opened from 10 am to 6 pm (whether permitting). On Saturdays, it is also open for night skiing. The track is 550 m long with elevation difference of 38.5 m and descent of 6.8%.
