A Dutch firm is reported to be planning to invest 40 million Euros in the leading Czech ski resort of Pec pod Snezkou. Middle Europe Investments apparently wants to upgrade facilities in the northern Bohemian ski town.
The money would go on a new central square with underground parking garage, town hall, hotel, shops and recreational facilities in the centre of Pec. It also offers a mountain tram to the ski area and a funicular railway.
Pec mayor Alan Tomasek is reported to be in favour of the project, which would begin in 2010 or 2011 sand take about three years, whilst other local council members oppose the plan.
Middle Europe Investments already owns and manages around 40 properties in tourist destinations throughout the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

New Children’s Ski Area in Czech Republic

The ski resort of Lipno in the Czech Republic has added a new children’s ski area that offers a wide variety of activities including perfectly groomed pistes and cross-country trails, a snowboard park, a local ski school and a wide range of shops. To round off this comprehensive package, a new children’s ski area, the FOXpark children’s ski area, has been created
During the summer months, the management team at Lipno worked together with the Austrian SunKid lift company to develop a brand new concept for younger guests visiting the region. However, the new children’s ski area certainly is not just about learning how to ski – it is first and foremost a place for safe fun in the snow. This fun is guaranteed by two SunKid Wonder Carpet conveyors, a SunKid Star tow lift, a Rotondo ski and tubing carousel, a snow tubing facility, as well as a whole range of SunKid figures and ski teaching aids.
The two Wonder Carpets have been installed in the centre of the FOXpark area. One of the main advantages of this is that separate ski lessons can be held on both sides of the Wonder Carpet, meaning that skiers and snowboarders can be divided into individual groups to make their first turns in the snow. For the more advanced winter sports enthusiasts there is the 80 m SunKid Star tow lift. This range of lifts and conveyors allows the ski school to adapt lessons to suit the different levels ability within each group.
One of the other newest attractions in Lipno is the SunKid ski and tubing carousel. The carousel has a double function: not only does it help beginners learn how to make their first turns on skis, it can also tow both adults and children around on snow tubes! Those guests who just can’t get enough of snowtubing should try out the perfectly groomed snowtubing facility in the FOXpark.
To ensure that younger visitors to the FOXpark feel at home straight away, the area is packed with fun figures from the SunKid range. These colourful figures and ski teaching aids create a friendly and happy atmosphere in the FOXpark. However, even before entering the park itself both children and adults alike are drawn to the area by the towering multicoloured entrance – a real eye-catcher!
