Very cloudy and very wet, but nice to pick off another country high point.
Chairlift and very easy walk to summit
First summit on my way to Crown of the Europe - the highest mountain in Czech Republic. Climbed from Pec pod Snezku.
A nice hike along the Polish border and the ridge from Spyndleruv Bouda, I believe.
early 80s, it was part of our school trip to summit the highest point of our country. Very easy hiking...
Went up from Pec pod Snezkou 3 times while preparing for Beskidska Sedmicka
After cca 10 years, on the highest czech peak again:-)
Great winter adventure. You have to have good weather, thou. It gets pretty windy up there! https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/lQLWuNuvIIcG6zHak8v-BA?feat=directlink
I had slept in Sklarska Poreba and hiked up Szrenica mountain (passing a nice waterfall on the way). I then followed the Polish-Czech friendship trail and spent the night in the very nice Samotnia hut. Then went on to summit Sniezka the next day. A bit cold but nice weather on the way up. Went down along the valley to Karpacz.
With my family and then again with my brother as teenagers on skies all the way to our cottage past Portasovy Boudy. Long day trip.
Avoided the Obri Dul route due to avalanche risk, instead took the path north from Pec Pod Snezkou through the forest. Beared west after the first major clearing to follow the Yellow Waymarked trail. Lost the trail at the Ruzova Hora cable car due to poor visibility and deep fresh snow so followed the cables till about 50m from the summit. We were able to rejoin the (frozen) path and continue to the summit. Excellent hike!
with my dad who lives in the Czech Republic
finally got a chance to climb the highest point of my country. Weather was so so, visibility approx 10m, but no rain, just few showers. However was pretty crowded. The walk: Spindlerova Bouda - Snezka - Lucni Bouda - Sv. Petr..good 25km on bad weather, have to come back, thats for sure :-)
One of the few summits I've done with my wife. A fun side trip to my cousin's wedding near Prague.
I participated in the race from Pomezni boudy, where we started at 5:11 a. m., still at night. At 6:35 I got to the summit of Snezka, under huge south winds and in a cloud. The race continued via the main ridge of Krkonosze until the Ceska budka trail junction, then it turned south to the saddle of Lysa hora, to Dvoracky, Rucicky, Vilemov, Korenov, Hvezda, Stepanka outlook with the finish in the village Paseky nad Jizerou. There was no snow on the trail.
I climbed this back in 1997 when I lived in the Czech Republic. I was back for a few months last year but unable to return to Snezka. Beautiful part of the country.
Is very nice to find this mountain here. I was there several times (in former time every year on school trips) because Snežka is the highest mountain in my country.I like the route from Obrí dul.
From Poland, Czech Republic, any routes, any season, any time. I'm fond of this summit.
I have climbed Snezka many times, winter, summer, ... Krkonose are my "home mountains". Not very high, by I like them.
