Jeseníky, the Altvater mountain range, has its name from the ruling spirit over the mountains, the Altvater. On the highest mountain of the Jeseníky massif, the Altvater (Praděd), which reaches up to an altitude of 1,492 m, a 150 m high TV tower with a restaurant is situated, whose summit is the highest point in the Czech Republik, although the Snezka in the Giant Mountains has a greater natural height as the Altvater. But enough talk in technical terms. The Altvater Mountains ((Jeseníky) offers such a wide range of winter sports facilities that no wish remains unfulfilled. It’s all there: snowparks, night skiing, ski schools, cross-country skiing, practice area for beginners and intermediate levels, seaside resorts, ski buses and a large offer of slopes, etc.. With slopes for all levels, there is nothing to be desired. A major highlight for cross-country skiers is the Altvater Mainline, a cross-country route, which leads you through the royal mountains. The entire Altvater Mainline covers a distance of 60 km, which runs through the Altvater mountain range (Jeseníky). The best starting point for this cross-country tour is the place Ramzovské sedlo. From here you will have to overcome 600 altimeters to cross the summit of Šerák (Hochschar). If you would like to go the easier way, you can take the cable car first.
