Special bus service in the Krkonoše now running for cross-country skiers
On the 26 December a new special bus service for tourists was launched in the Krkonoše providing a similar service as the summer bus services for cyclists. This winter service will mostly transport cross-country skiers between Harrachov, Vrchlabí, Špindlerův Mlýn and Pec pod Sněžkou. The service will operate in the Krkonoše for a total of 13 weeks every Wednesday and Sunday with the last service departing at Easter.
In winter over 550 kilometres of cross-country skiing trails are created in the Krkonoše which are used every season by around a million skiers. Despite this, skiers staying in Harrachov couldn’t set out on a ridge tour to Pec pod Sněžkou as there was no way of returning from the other side. The winter bus service is aimed primarily at walkers and cross-country skiers. It can also be used by downhill skiers but only in normal shoes. Drivers cannot allow skiers in ski boots on board.
