It is a good skiing resort with decent slopes. If you travel regularly to the Alps, you will find this one really busy and not offering so many possibilities to make your skiing variable. Biggest issue is the waiting time for chairlift. In busy weekends and weeks you can easily wait 20-25 minutes for a ride. Ski pass is not cheap either. Service and quality of the bars, toilets and other amenities is very high, however having a few drinks at the bottom of the slope is definitely not for the budget traveller. There is also a little less developed skiing "behaviour" of a "culture" which I trust is somewhat connected to the long waiting for a ride, you can sense some sort of frustration instead of the typical fun and joy of skiing in larger alpine resorts.

Me and my girlfriend came to Spindle for 5 days and met up with friends over here. There's a decent mixture of slopes for different ability levels. Unfortunately it's very, very busy. Waiting in the queues for the lifts is demoralising. There are usually upwards of 100 people waiting to get onto a 4 person chairlift, with impatient people regularly shouldering their way to the front. We've enjoyed some really good off-piste boarding and one night of brilliant night-skiing on a floodlit run. If you don't eat meat, the only thing you can eat at the restaurants on the slopes will be fries. Some restaurants serve fries alongside burgers and the like, but refuse to serve you vegetarian sides on their own. We've enjoyed our time here but I won't come again.

The ski hill had 1/4 of the runs open with the same amount of people. Very crowded and fast people wanted to ski with learners so no one was happy. Prices were full even though there was limited access to the hill. Customer service was not their forte.

Nice and small charming village with lots of tourists from Poland and Germany.
I tried only cross country skiing trails. Must say that it is absolutely confusing, chaotic and inconsistent in marking both in maps and in trails. Colors of the trails change suddenly and unexpectedly.
No cross country skiing map available in tourism office.
There are only two cross country skiing areas around - Horny Misecky and Svety Petr.
You can expect foggy weather.
Prices are quite high but not excessively high. Also not to much to do in the evening after skiing.

Not much to see, not much to do. If the main attraction of the village is the white-coated concrete bridge over the river Elbe... - you get it. No real village center or square, no nice old houses, just a jumble of buildings and restaurants and bars and cafes. Not worth it in summer. Good starting point for hiking, though.

Špindlerův Mlýn is a lovely town in the Krkonoše Mountains in the Hradec Králové Region of the Czech Republic. It is located not far from the Polish border and the nature is extremely beautiful and attractive. Špindlerův Mlýn lies on the confluence of the river Labe (Elbe) and the Dolský creek (Dolský creek). And their cascades and noise make this place magical.
The main reasons why Špindlerův Mlýn visited throughout the year are the many possibilities of sports activities and active relaxation (It is one of the most frequented ski resorts in the country). For us, Špindlerův Mlýn was the starting point for hiking to the Luční hora (at 1,555 m, the second highest mountain of the Czech Republic) and to the highest peak of Sněžka (1,603 m). The settlement was first documented in the early 16th century under the rule of King Louis II Jagiello. It received its name (which can be literally translated as Spindler's Mill) after a mill belonging to a Spindler family, where neighbors would meet. Franz Kafka stayed here for recreation in January-February 1922 and began writing of one of his most famous works, The Castle (Das Schloss). The place is full of good restaurants, shops, hotels and bars.

The person in charge of the electronic signs that represent which slopes are opened or closed should take more responsibility in understanding that families base important decisions upon the information provided!!!

During a recent fall hike with the family up the mountain, we were hit with a snow squall with blustery winds. We pushed on to the top since the sign below clearly stated that the restaurant at the top was open.

Upon arriving to the top seeking warmth and shelter in the restaurant, we huddled behind a wall with other misinformed (and equally passed off) hikers to get out of the wind.

When we addressed the issue down below, the apathy response was 'oh those signs are quite often wrong'.

Quite reckless of a ski resort that claims to be the best in Czech Republic! I would hate to think how they treat safety when the same mountain is full of skiers!

Truly someone needs to take responsibility of the information on those sign while respecting how important that information is to the visitors!!!

Ok, first my comments on the mountain:
I only skied on the Medvedin side because we had kids in the ski school there. There was no natural snow, which in this case turned out to be fine because the artificial snow was a good quality/quantity and the slopes were well maintained with only a few icy patches developing at the end of the day. This particular mountain had wide, pretty easy trails, great for beginners, with only 1 black diamond trail which was kind of steep but manageable for intermediate skiers. After a day on this mountain, I got a little bored w/the limited number trails. I would have liked to try S.Petr but didn't get a chance due to the kids. Only 1 chair lift with numerous long t-lifts. Restaurant on top was ok, food quality was average, but the lack of dining options would get pretty annoying after a few days on this one mountain, so it's best to switch it up and visit different ski areas each day, which I assume most people do. Food options at the base are even worse, especially the grill "shack" near the base of the main run--all fried food, gross. We did go to the round, glassed in bar near the base for cider, beer and hot chocolate, which was a nice way to end each day of skiing. Rentals and ski lift tickets were pretty cheap by US standards (average $39/day for a lift ticket which is 1/2 to 1/3 of what it'd be in some resorts in the US).

Now for comments on the town: ok, so it's kind of cute and picturesque and maybe it is more so when it's snow covered or nice & green in the summer. What disappointed me was there was no interesting shops to visit--just lots of places selling ski gear. I mean really, do people really that much ski gear at a mountain that you need 10 stores selling the same stuff? I would have liked to buy some souvenirs or other local products to bring back to family members & friends but I found only 1 touristy shop and even then the items were kind of lame. The info center had a small selection of stuff but nothing amazing. For supposedly the biggest ski area in the Czech. Republic, I think the town needs to step up their game and make the center of town a little more dynamic and interesting. Once you're done skiing for the day you might want to stroll around a bit, but in SM, aside from restaurants or ski shops/rentals, there's really not much going on.

In summary:
skiing conditions/trails: very good
dining on the mountain, at least at Medvedin- mediocre at best
town: cute-ish but kind of a snooze
dining in town/area: lots to choose from but surprisingly many restaurants are not listed on TA.
hotels: lots to choose from

Would I go back to SM? Probably not. While the skiing is good, the town was just a little too unexciting for me. God forbid it rains or it's foggy as it was one day when we were there, what do you do in SM if you can't go skiing??

We came on the 2.4 all attractions were closed!!!! They close on the end of march. Don't go to the yellow point school or rental!!! We rented equipment and had to walk with it to the slope they could have told us that there is a bus or taxi or offer transportation.
Their instructor was terrible!!! Unfriendly unprofessional !!! Made my youngest son hate ski in t minutes!!!
On the other hand go to skol max they are very frindly kind and professional. There is equipment to rent next to the slope.
I don't recommend to go to spindelrov mlyn after the end of March if you are not a trained skier.
We stayed at Savoy hotel that was very good.
