CZ – Cross-Country Skiing in the Ore Mountains

Published: 13.2.2020
The Ore Mountains are an ideal place for hiking, offering countless excursions. In winter, when there is enough snow, it turns into a cross-country paradise. There are so many great routes from Boží Dar that it would be a pity not to come here in winter.

Park your car a short distance from the Jahodová louka cross-country ski and ski area, where you can also start off. The tracks are well groomed and offer various circuit variants. However, they are more suitable for more experienced cross-country skiers, as they usually go downhill and uphill. It is also necessary to count on the fact that there will be races on the meadow and will be inaccessible to the public.

However, even in the case of races there is no need to go home, just cross the road at the parking lot, put on cross-country skis and continue a little over the plain, where sprawls Božídarské peat bogs. At the other end is a nice cross-country ski trail. At the signpost Na Pláni take the Ore Mountains ski main trail around Božídarský Špičák. After 1.5 kilometers we pass the signpost Za Špičákem, continue to Elektrovod za Špičáka and extend the planned route by 4 kilometers around Božídarský Špičák. If you want to go to this smaller circuit too, the trail is very good, continue right to Wunderblume, from here towards the signpost V Bažinách where you turn right again to the signpost Za Špičákem.

From here we continue again along the Krušné Hory ski artery 1.3 kilometers to the signpost Pod Špičákem. Here we turn right and after another 1.3 kilometers at Mrtvého rybníka we turn right again. We pass the Dead Pond, Slatiny and signpost U Maringotky after another 2 kilometers and we are heading towards the gallery White Dove. This adit of tin deposit dates back to the 16th century and was discovered in 2012. Today it is not accessible to the public, but there is an educational board.

We continue on about 20 meters deep valley Schneppova pinka to 2 km distant signpost Spáleniště. There is also a small Refreshment at the Red Pit. You won't get too warm in this stone kiosk, but refreshments are very affordable at the very best of prices, and the ordering staff really punches away. It is located next to the valley of the Červená jáma mine, which is also named after it.

We continue on the same way back along the main road to the signpost HS Shelter, where we turn left to Jáchymovská spojka. Here we turn right to Wunderblume, copying a short section from our previous circuit, but not turning to the signpost V Bažinách, but to the meadow at Wunderblume. After the Špičácká road we then head to the Vodárenská signpost and then to the Kaffenberská signpost. Up to here it is approximately 9 kilometers away from the refreshment. At Kaffenberg we turn left and head for the Ježíškovo rozcestí about one kilometer away. We turn right to the signpost U Kazišuka and then to Vraky. After 2 kilometers, we arrive in Boží Dar, from where we get back to our starting parking lot via Božídarské peat bogs. We have a beautiful 30 kilometers behind us.
