Only 4 km from the picturesque town Vrchlabí lies the modern ski resort of Herlíkovice. The ski resort is located in the north of the Hradec Králové region, within the Giant Mountains at an altitude between 540 and 1019 m. From Dresden, it takes about 3 hours by car, from Hradec Králové about 1 hour and from the Czech capital Prague about 2 hours to get to the ski resort.

Characteristic of the ski resort Herlíkovice is its variety of slopes which makes it suitable for skiers of all skill levels and ages. In the ski resort, beginners will find 4 blue ski slopes. The ski schools in Herlíkovice tend to use these slopes for beginners’ ski lessons.

The qualified ski instructors patiently teach adults their first turns and the right body posture needed for skiing. Ski slopes that are particularly good for beginners are the blue slopes Vyhlídková, Bubákovská or Školní. On the 2.8 km long slope Vyhlídková, skiers are able to enjoy a beautiful view of the valley. The ski schools in Herlíkovice usually select the Kinderland as their meeting point.

At the valley station, children will find the O2 Extra Kinderland - a modern kids area. Here, instructors from the ski schools in Herlíkovice teach the little ones the basics of skiing in a playful way. To do so, they use magic carpets, children's lifts and a ski carousel. In the safe environment of the Kinderland, which is separated from the rest of the public slopes, children are able to practice their first turns on slalom tracks with colourful fairy tale characters.

The ski schools in Herlíkovice offer private ski lessons for children from the age of 1, while children aged 4 and upwards are able to participate in both group and private lessons. What is also noteworthy is the heated and fully equipped children's play area, which is open to all little ones during the winter months.

How do we find our appropriate experience level?

Next to the menu item "Experience level" you will find a description of the individual experience levels. If you're still not sure, you don't need to worry. Simply choose the experience level that best suits your abilities. Before the first lesson of a group course, ski schools will assess your abilities so that you can be placed in the right group.

You will find offers including equipment faster if you select the filter "Ski rental including" under the menu item "Popular options".

There is no offer including equipment, where can we alternatively rent equipment?

In a ski resort there is almost without exception the possibility to rent winter sports equipment. If you book via CheckYeti, you will receive discounts from our partner Skiset, where you can conveniently reserve your equipment online.

How many participants are usually in a group?

This depends on the ski school. Some ski schools have a maximum number of participants per group. You can find this information in the descriptions of the offers.

At what age can children ski or snowboard?

There is no fixed age limit here. Supported by specially trained children's ski instructors, children can already learn to ski playfully at kindergarten age. Depending on the children's level of motoric and social development, the ideal starting age is between 4 and 5 years. Occasionally there are children who can already learn to ski at the age of 3 1/2 years.

How many days should the lessons last for our children?

During the holiday weeks, children's ski courses for beginners usually start on Sunday or Monday. The program is designed in such a way that the best learning results are achieved when your children take part in the ski course throughout the week. So they don't miss the final event (race, etc.) and experience a great week with their group. For advanced children the learning success usually kicks in on the third day.

Is it better to put our child in a group lesson or a private tuition?

The group lessons are generally recommended for beginners. Learning together with peers is more fun. The children are not constantly in the focus and have the possibility to catch their breath between the individual exercises, while the other children are on it. In order not to underchallenge highly talented children, a private ski instructor is recommended.

Can we join our child with a private instructor?

Yes, that's possible. Some providers even offer special family offers. Otherwise, you can simply book a private instructor for children or adults and inform the ski school after booking that you would like to go together.
