sorry, only just seen your post but my daughter in law is Czech and we are all going ski-ing to Spindleruv Mlyn over New Year. She says this is the best resort (2 hours from Prague) although she does moan about it being more expensive each year as it gets more popular. Hope this helps

Oh Yeah, didn't notice that ha ha! Will report back as not much on here about Czech Republic that I could see. We usually go to Austria and have been ski-ing for many years (we even met in that infamous resort beginning with N that dare not speak its name on here!) so it will be interesting to compare. Will post again in January.

Im living in Czech Rep. Yep Špindleruv Mlýn is about the best and Harrachov which is nearby. They are about the biggest and well known Czech ski resorts, up near Liberec and Poland/Germany. Its cheaper then Austrian resorts Ive been to, English is widely spoken and Ive found the fellow skiers more courteous then in Tirolean resorts. I tend to only cross country/back country ski these days though, if thats anyones cup of tea good places are Nove Mesto na Morave(annual biathlon world champs held here) under an hour from Brno or Beskidy mountains north east near Ostrava with probably the wildest unspoilt nature in Czech Rep.

Never been to Nassfeld, looks quite interesting though.

If you want a resort that gets mentioned 150 times a day on here beginning with N, there is the other one you probably meant.....

Yes, Tony unfortunately it is the one that gets mentioned 150 times a day!!
Said I would report back and here goes.
We were mixed party of nine aged 70 to 18 months! Very pleasantly surprised about the ski area, we are not the sort of skiers that get up early and ski until the last lift, but there were good runs for most abilities. Lovely long blue run at Svaty Petr with a quick 10 minute chair back up which kept most of us amused a fair bit. Ski school for the 4 year old was OK, but not a patch on what I have seen in Austria. Lift pass was about £115.00 for 6 days for the area pass. There is a good red run which has night ski-ing, this is extra. It was useful having Daughter in Law speaking the language for certain things (eg,my son and I both asked on separate occasions to book a table in a certain restaurant for NYEve but told to just turn up, but when my daughter in law asked they ushered us to a table immediately and it was apparent that tables had reservations on them!)However most people do speak english, and a lot speak German so you can get buy in one or the other. Funny things like piste map brochure not translated into English though. If you can make your way from airport into Prague there is a bus that costs £7.00 for the 3 hour trip to Spinderluv Myln. We got a taxi from the airport, don't think I am allowed to recommend but brilliant service so would if I could, booked on internet from here and turned up both ways £184.00 round trip. (2h15 mins each way)
Very much cheaper than Austria to eat in the village and on the mountains, particularly drinks, both alcoholic and soft. One thing to watch is very noisy disco in centre of the village goes on until 4.00am.
Lots of Germans, Russians and a surprising number of English in the resort, because we probably would not have thought to try this area if not for the family connection.
Hope this helps
