WINTER

 

Harrachov town is mainly known as a ski resort. Two chairlifts bring skiers and snowboarders to the top of Čertova hora (Devil's Mountain). Thanks to modern system of artificial snow making it is possible to ski up to 5 months in a year. If someone does not have or can not ski, the problem can be quickly solved by local ski schools or ski rentals.
