And most importantly: TEN PRINCIPLES OF SAFE BEHAVIOR WHEN MOVING IN MOUNTAIN TERRAIN
The Be Fit route is undemanding. Nevertheless, follow the instructions and do not go to the forbidden places of the Elbe mine. There is a high risk of avalanches. However, the Be Fit route leads in a safe part of the Elbe Mine.
There is no parking option for the Be Fit route. We do not recommend a closer car park P3 - Medvědín, it is very often fully occupied. You can also use the bus lines Špindlerův Mlýn - Špindlerova Bouda. From the bus stop Dívčí lávky, the start of the route Be fit is only 280 m away. Take advantage of the nearby snack bar in the Myslivna restaurant.
Detailed route description:
The starting point is the Infocentre ŠPINDL.info - on Špindlerův Mlýn. You will cross the White Bridge, where you will turn right along the blue tourist sign in the direction of the Medvědín and Labský důl cable cars. After only 1.8 km you are at the signpost Pod Dívčí strání - here is the start of the route Be fit.
The Be Fit route is under the patronage of the City of Špindlerův Mlýn, which finances the maintenance of the route. The maintenance of the trail is provided by the company Snow & Fun - the operator of the toboggan run.
The beginning of the route is located in front of the KRNAP Information Cabin, in the immediate vicinity of the confluence of the Elbe and Bílý Labem at the Myslivna restaurant, where you can enjoy refreshments.
The Be Fit - Špindlerův Mlýn route is 7.2 km long (3.6 km to Labské dol and 3.6 km back). The regularly maintained cross-country trail is designed for classic cross-country skiing. The route with an elevation gain of less than 130 m is suitable for all ages to strengthen the condition and for recreational running. This route is suitable for both active athletes and recreation. It is also suitable for families with children.
The route leads through the valley of the Elbe Mine, not on the ridges of the Giant Mountains, and therefore has ideal access from the center of Špindl. There is also no danger of major changes in the weather, as can be the case on mountain ridges.
Two tracks for classic skiing are being prepared on the route. In the period 15.12. - 15.3. (if snow conditions allow) the track is usually modified 3 times a week, most often on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. In case of heavy snowfall or the need to modify the track even outside the stated days.
You can get information about the condition of the track in the Municipal Information Center or at the HOTLINE modifications of the cross-country track Be Fit: +420 601 222 111.
Important note: Cross-country skiing is only allowed on the cross-country track. Do not enter without cross-country skis and do not destroy the modified track!
We wish you pleasant relaxation and great sports experiences on the Be Fit route!
