The Ore Mountains are perfect for winter fun.

One of the most beautiful mountain ranges of the Czech Republic can be found in the Karlovy Vary Region – the Ore Mountains. The diverse landscape, beautiful panoramas, and perfectly tended ski trails and pistes entice lovers of winter sports.

Choose from the offer of winter resorts with terrain suitable for both beginners and experienced skiers. The ski resorts at Klínovec – the highest mountain of the Ore Mountains (1,244 m), in Boží Dar – the town with the highest elevation in Central Europe (1,020 m), and at Plešivec – the newest ski resort in the Czech Republic, can be compared with the foreign competition. Smaller resorts provide comfortable skiing and great opportunities for beginner skiers. You can expect modern facilities, children’s grounds, snow parks, equipment rentals, repair shops, and a wide offer of refreshments.

Set out on the “white trail” through the snowy countryside, which looks like a fairy-tale, especially in the winter. You can expect hundreds of kilometres of tended cross-country skiing trails around Pernink and Horní Blatná, or also in the popular Eduard Resort located between Jáchymov and Boží Dar. The Ore Mountain Cross-Country Skiing Trail running between Bublava and Boží Dar is very popular.

Those who want to enjoy winter fun with their children will also be excited, as will the lovers of adrenaline sports. Your little ones will fall in love with snow-tubing – riding on special tyres down a snow trough – and you can try out snowkiting.

When the weather conditions are bad, small and big athletes alike will surely appreciate the public ice rink in KV Arena in Karlovy Vary, but also in the winter stadiums in Ostrov, Cheb, Sokolov, Nejdek, and Mariánské Lázně.

Looking for the perfect place to relax after a day’s worth of skiing? You can choose from the wide offer of the spa and wellness procedures in the spa towns of Jáchymov, Karlovy Vary, Mariánské Lázně, and Františkovy Lázně, located nearby the ski resorts. Treat yourself to a wholesome bath or relaxing massage and regenerate your body after a tough day. Enjoy your winter holiday in the Karlovy Vary Region.
