Reality Czechs: Skiing at Červená voda

Reality Czechs: A wonderful weekend at Červená voda (Red Water).
It’s a new resort – only 1 fast quad seat chair with warmed seat,
but 2 beautiful 2 km runs.

Good snow but very, very cold. Yesterday the temperature was
-12C (the App said ‘seems like -19C’) on the first day. Today was
only -10C but it seemed colder.

And the best thing is it’s only a 2hr drive from Brno and no Hotham ridges or hairpins. Love it.


Reality Czechs: In the forest

OK. So we cancelled skiing because we thought it would have been too cold (the predicted temperature was -12C). But now we have a beautiful sunny weekend. There is a lot of snow around because the temperatures are still below freezing. So we went on a small walk in the forest (11k).

Now we are in Starobrno Brewery having velký pivo and pork ribs. Not a bad day.

Reality Czechs: Brno at play

It has been snowing and it is so cold, freezing cold. The dam is frozen so we went out to catch the action. The tram goes all the way out to the dam and it was packed with people carrying skates and other equipment.

It seems as though the whole of Brno was out. First you clear the snow and then you skate. hockey players, both young and old, were having a game, kids were being taught and cross country skiers were taking advantage of the snow.

Of course you bring a sled to carry all your equipment – and the keg of beer if you are truly into having fun. After all this is the Czech Republic.
