Skiing season underway

The skiing season has started in most of the country’s ski resorts thanks to a combination of natural and artificial snow. Krkonoše Mountain resorts report up to 70 centimetres of snow, Orlické Hory resorts on average 45 centimetres. The ski resort Červená Voda reported an emergency on Sunday when around 100 skiers had to be evacuated from the local ski lift after the fuse board caught fire. The evacuation took 40 minutes and no one was reported hurt.
