So there’s a bus service in Prague that takes people skiing for one day, Cityski. We were at Špindleruv Mlyn yesterday, 2 hours from Prague. Not everything went smoothly though. We rented all equipment beforehand at Skimania and were all ready to go on the tram stop by 6.15. The bus was supposed to leave Palmovka by 7 in the morning. The tram came at 6.35 instead of 6.19 and as you can guess we were pretty wound up by then. Halfway to our destination the recorded voice announced the next station - to our horror, the tram was looping, not going to Palmovka at all. We got out on the next stop and ran back one stop, desperately looking for alternative teams. Nothing. We turn the street and there’s a bridge closed off in front of us. We checked the route the night before on Google Maps - a direct tram, running as a clock. Damn you Google Maps! Thankfully my husband called his colleague who was on the bus already. Skis and boots and sticks and helmets in our hands, swearing way too much, we run across the bridge where my husband’s colleague picks us up with his car. We make it.
The slopes and the snow are very good, the food pricey (70 for the soup, 70 for a slice of pizza and 100 for the mulled wine) and skiing great! Despite the stressful morning the rest of the day was full of positive adrenaline and by about 7 we were back🙂
