We went to the Czech Republic because it was cheaper than the Alps basically. Bit we were really pleased with Spindleruv. Sure -not masses of pistes, but what there was was fun to play on and we filled 5 days in on the reds and blues etc either side of the valley. Eating, drinking and accommodation are brilliantly cheap. So if you are after kilometers of fresh new runs every day this place is maybe not for you- but if you after a good, fun, cheap few days then look no further. There are 3 main lift accesses spread about a mile or so along the valley - 2 of which are joined up on the hillside. The Ski bus is every hour or so which is fine if you organise yourselves, and we could walk to a beginners tow from our pension to get to the Medvedin pistes which was handy (and ski back). We had great weather but it was end of season for us so the pistes got a bit icy in the mornings for a couple of days before ski traffic loosened things up. They'd obviously had a lot of snow earlier and there's a lot of forest tracks and trails (lots of ski cross country going on) so I would imagine the back country is good mid season. We flew to Wroclaw and got a taxi transfer which between 6 of us was very economical. Oh, and I would definitely avoid weekends if you can as half of Prague seemed to be there and it was v.busy....

This is the fourth ski trip we took in this season in 4 countries: Poland, Germany, Austria and Czech. This is the worst experience EVER in my skiing life. The resort actually the whole city is trying to GET YOU. They treat you like thieves, and refused to reimburse/exchange unused day-passes. We are a family of 3 with a 3-year old so my husband and I couldn't ski at the same time. Like we did in the other countries, we bought 1 4-day ski pass that my husband skied in AM while I skied in PM. At 3pm of the 1st day, our pass was "broken" so I went to the office to fix it. It turned out that they canceled the pass because my husband and I shared, and that they refused to reimburse me the remaining 3 days, and treated me like a thief. I had to negotiate with them to use their phone to call their headquarters that the woman was very reasonable, and instructed the people in the office to reimburse me for the 3 days, but I had to buy 3 single day parents tickets. On the 3rd day (Saturday), my husband couldn't ski so the first thing I got to the resort was to go to the ticket office to exchange the parents' pass to a regular pass. I was told that the pass cannot be reimbursed, and the headquarter was closed because it was Saturday. Saint Peter's resort (Olympic site) had no parking, but near the entrance on the street, there is a pull-off area for 3 cars that people regularly drop off and pick up skiers. But the drivers get tickets or get their car booted all the time because it was not allowed to stop there period. If it is not allowed, why do you create the pull-off area at the first place. It seems to be designed to trick people to violate the no-parking so that they can get fines from people. Now about the resort, the slopes are icy, and many of the slopes are not groomed, and man-made snow from nights are simply spread, but left with small piles and lumps, which are not helping the skiing experience. Finally, the lifts are not covered/heated as in Poland and Austria so the so-called modern 5 star resort is nothing like it. Instead of investing money in taking pictures of the skiers at the left area, they should spend the money to improve the skiing experience. ... Full Review

Jezdze na Swietym Piotrze od 26 do 31 stycznia 2013. Duzy wybor tras, Dobrze przygotowane, ratrakowane codziennie. Przepelnienie ludzi tylko około 11-tej (gdy przyjezdzaja trzy skibusy z roznych stron doliny oraz samochody na parking). Wtedy czeka sie w kolejce 15-20 minut. Wczesniej lub pozniej czeka sie 5 minut. Dobre miejsce dla rodzinnego sportu, dlatego trasy najlatwiejsze sa przeludnione dziecmi, ale na trudniejszych jest luz. Dla mnie mankamentem jest polozenie stacji dolnej (nieco wyzej niz koniec trasy), wiec albo trzeba podchodzic 200 m pod gore na koniec kolejki, albo rozpedzac sie w ostatnim etapie jazdy i "wjechac" w kolejke do Sw.Piotra - moze stad taka nazwa:) Obsluga wyciagow bez zarzutu. Kanapa wygodna. Czas wjazdu na gore 7 -8 minut. Wladze miasteczka moglyby sie postarac o wiecej skibusow. Z mojego pensjonatu jezdzi zielony skibus co 2 godziny. Jest przepelniony. Gdyby jezdzil co godzine, byloby lepiej i luzniej. Zaleta skubusow - sa darmowe. Taksowki sa dostepne, ale dosc drogie. Wsrod narciarzy slychac wszystkie jezyki Europy. Najwiekszy plus Szpindlerowego Mlyna - to dobre trasy.... Full Review
