Description

Experience four full days of skiing along the ridges of the Giant Mountains in Czech Republic.

The Giant Mountains range expands along the northern regions of the country, culminating in the highest peak in the republic, Snezka, which measures 1,603 meters.

These sections of the mountainside are a goldmine of geography and biology. Large chunks of the mountainside are protected within a national park, and is also protected as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve site.

Even more, one of the major European rivers, the river Elbe, originates in the Giant Mountains, which flows down and out into the rest of the Czech Republic and into Germany.

There is no better place to traverse the mountains than here on the slopes of the Giant Mountains. It is a European hotspot for downhill skiing, as well as cross-country skiing.

During the days we’ll explore the great ungroomed slopes that the mountains have to offer, while every night we head to a different hut.

With cozy rooms and front-row views of stunning scenery, our hut hopping will add an extra dimension to our snowy exploration.

Since then I worked as a history and PE teacher. I was also running an Outdoor sport's club at that time, spending plenty of time climbing, skiing etc. with my students.

In 2009, I became a full time skiing and climbing instructor.

2010 – APUL B ski instructor
2011 – APUL telemark and snowboard
2012 – ISIA Mark (International ski instructors association)

Spending your holiday with you would be my pleasure. Whether in winter on a ski tour (in Czech Republic or Austria) or in summer among the spectacular sandstone towers.

It will be, with no doubt, a very pleasant experience for all of us. I'm an easygoing, friendly and reliable person with a good sense for responsibility.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with me !

Guide: Jan Hais! What a great ski tour our threesome had in the Giant Mountains in the spring of 2022, with our guide Jan Hais. The weather was great, as was the culture of alpine huts and mountain lore in the land of the giant, Krkonoše. But the trip was really pulled together in such a successful way by the skill of our guide. He was an expert at understanding our needs. We were strong and experienced in some ways, yet less so in others, particularly in the use of alpine touring gear. Jan expertly knew when to give us room to roam, yet to jump into help when we needed it. Excellent! We did seem to fall through the cracks a little in pre-trip communications—not our guide’s fault. However, Jan listened empathetically to our concerns and his professionalism reassured us. Thank you, Jan Hais. Thanks, too, to the team at Explore-Share for reaching out to us over our pre-trip hiccups.
