There's nothing else to do but ski!
An especially cold arctic front will arrive to the country in the middle of the week. It will bring snow and strong gusts of wind, and Slovakia might get snowbound for a couple of days. Meteorologists assume the strong wind will create snowdrifts and blizzards.
The temperature at altitudes above 1,000 metres will climb to -8 degrees Celsius. When winter eases a bit at the end of the week, daily temperatures might approach zero.
So, what can you do in such weather? Ski and ski!
Becherovka will warm you up at the Becherovka Ski Show in Donovaly on March 18 and in Jasná, under the Chopok hill, on March 19.
If you are tired of classical skiing, put on a mask or a costume and come to the ski carnival at Ski Blanc Ostrý Grúň-Kollárová on March 18 to enjoy fun, goulash, and country music.
Chleb in Vrátna invites you to try the newly opened 8-person ropeway cabin and lift in Oštiepkova mulda. However, the ski slope at the lower station of the cabin at 750 metres is closed.
