WINTER ski resorts that have joined forces and formed an association called Slovakia Ski Region plan to invest at least €1.5 billion (Sk55 billion) in the next five years and create around 20,000 jobs.
The operators of largest winter ski resorts in Slovakia - 1. Tatranská (which runs the ski resorts Park Snow Donovaly and Park Snow Vysoké Tatry), Snow Paradise Veľká Rača Oščadnica, Tatranské Lanové Dráhy, and Jasná Nízke Tatry - have also called on the government to support the development of tourism in Slovakia, the SITA news agency wrote.
The ski resorts also agreed on a joint marketing strategy for Slovakia.
