The snowpark is situated at the bottom of the red slope on both sides of the obstacle known as 'Malý hank'. It has a snowboard cross track, a U-ramp, several jib obstacles and the Big Air, which is a jump with rebounds of various sizes . Everything is designed for the general public and with safety in mind.
The snowpark is located at the top of the Hromovka ski slope by the exit from the Hromovka chairlift, but it is also accessible from the blue slope down from the top at Pláň to Svatý Petr. The park is designed for everybody, but especially for beginners. The obstacles are smaller and set deeper in the snow to make them safer. There are fun obstacles with rails and boxes of different shapes and sizes. A big advantage of this snowpark is that it is lit, enabling you to ski or snowboard under floodlights when the Hromovka chairlift is open in the evenings.
This snowpark is located in Horní Mísečky above the Hořec a Kleč hostels. A big advantage is that the snowpark is away from the ski slopes and has its own lift. Throughout the winter there are at least two adjacent jumps and several rail obstacles. The park is suitable for both beginners and advanced, while visitors also appreciate the south-facing slope, which guarantees plenty of sunny days.

If you want to travel for almost 4 kilometres without taking a single step, head for the Sledging Track in Špindlerův Mlýn. You can buy a ticket in the town centre at the Sledging Track bus stop (next to the Post Office). Buses depart for the starting point on the hour (or every half hour if there is sufficient demand) between 10:00 and 16:00, or 18:00 and 20:00. At the starting point you will be given a sledge, which you will ride down the track of almost 4 kilometres and spanning an elevation of approximately 350 m. Hand over your sledge by the pleasant refreshment stands and decide whether to return to the town centre by bus or enjoy a short stroll along the Elbe. If you want to go down again, you can wait for the next bus at the starting point.
From Tuesdays to Saturdays, you can try a floodlit evening ride. The track is closed to the public between 16:30 and 18:00 for grooming. Bus timetables and further information is available at reception or:

Your legs aren't aching from all that sport? Well, why not have a go at skating? Unfortunately, we don't yet have an indoor ice rink, but skating on the outdoor recreational rink with its stunning view of the Svatý Petr valley is a fantastic experience. The floodlit rink is situated below hotel Horal, which has a hire centre for all you need. Opening hours are dependant on the weather, and this information is available at the hotel reception.
It isn't only rocks that are ideal terrain for climbing – ice can be just as good. Nowadays many people enjoy this discipline beyond the high mountains, especially on the frozen waterfalls in the mountain valleys during winter. In Špindlerův Mlýn you can climb on ice on the rock at the end of the Keep Fit route in Labský důl. Because this is the only venue and it is situated in the heart of the national park, numbers are restricted. The waterfall is fairly small so climbers are limited to 16 per day, which enables the sport to be enjoyed by others. You can book a winter ice climb using the reservation system at www.krnap.cz, or find out more by contacting the KRNAP Information Centre.
Alpine skiing dates back more than one hundred years. Initially, it was primarily the reserve of military skiers from Alpine countries who monitored borders and activity within the mountains. Eventually climbers and skiers started to use the equipment which obviously suited the times – wooden skis "for cross-country, downhill and jumps", i.e. all in one. These had bindings with small metal clips at the rear of the boot and a movable heel to allow a fastening to be clamped to the ski for the downhill sections – otherwise known as Kandahars.
From April 2010 the KRNAP administration approved several Alpine ski routes on a trial basis. Further KRNAP decisions will be made on the basis of monitoring and compliance with the conditions set out in its general terms and in the KRNAP Visitor Regulations.
It is stressed that most of the routes contain some hazardous sections and, during poor weather, a simple excursion can become a struggle for survival. These are definitely not secure routes! In most cases, they are normal tourist routes in the summer, but in winter the situation can change drastically! Experience and familiarity with mountain conditions are essential, together with adequate equipment.
