It received the ‘Jumper of the Year’ award for its investments into the development of infrastructure and increasing the quality of services, while the restaurant in the former cable car station Luková was the most popular mountain restaurant. Bohuš Hlavatý, CEO of Tatry Mountain Resort, which operates the Jasná ski resort, became the so-called cable car operator of the year.
