The operators of the 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.
