Where do I find Snowmonkey rental?
Our rental is directly in the center on the main square, behind the Xmas tree. You will find our monkeys there, they show you the way.Full adress is Spindleruv Mlyn 11.
Svaty Petr is busiest place. There is only one blue slope which is usually full of people, but the red and black slopes are perfect. There is the newest 6 chairlift and 2 restaurants downhill + 1 restaurant uphill for a lunch or coffee.
There are 2 sites from the bottom:
- Svaty Petr (the main place with 6 chair lift.
- Hromovka (4 chairlift and free parking).
The small problem could be that the free parking is on Hromovka where are just red slopes which could be deficult for beginner to return.
The blue slope and the beginner's area are on the site Svaty Petr. There is no parking, but you can come there by skibus (free) or taxi.MEETINGPOINT: In front of the cash desk.
Svaty Petr even Medvedin are both 5 minutes by ski bus or taxi from our rental in the center.
We recommend to beginners to start on Medvedin and after few days of experience check the Svaty Petr as well.
I am a beginner. For how long should I take the lesson?
We usually recommend for beginners 2 or 3 days course with 4 hours daily (10-12 and 2-4, there is a lunch break).
You start with the basic moovements, you will learn how to stop and turn in snowplough postition.
The point will be to feel safe on the slopes on all the terrain, change the speed and start with first steps to become'intermediate'skier with parallel skies.
I feel I need more hours, can I prolong it?
Sure. Just teel your instructor or call us or come to tell us in to our rental.
If is it possilbe, you can continue with the same instructor or we recomment you the one who can help you with your next progress.
Why do you offer just private lessons?
Our school Snowmonkey offers just private lessons. We believe it is much better than group lessons, because:
- Your progress is faster and you enjoy the time much better
- You don't have to wait for the weakest one in the group, because you have the instructor just for yourself
- It is safer than in the group of other people
- The price is similar at least because you learn more in a shorter time
If I rent ski/or snowboard and I will not be happy on ski/or snowboard. Can I change it for snowboard/or ski?
Sure. The price is the same. Just bring everything in our rental and change it for free.
