Looking for better skiing conditions?

Therefore, visitors should always keep informed about the latest ski conditions before visiting a resort. Freezing weather can only be maintained at altitudes above 1,500 metres. In Slovakia, this has so far only occurred in Lomnické Sedlo in the High Tatras, where the snow cover has reached almost 150 cm.
And what should we expect in the mountains next week? Large ski centres organize entertainment every weekend - such as the Snow Downhill & Fourcross Cup that should take place in Donovaly on January 20 - but the shortage of snow will most likely result in many cancellations.
To enjoy real skiing, head to ski centres at high altitudes in the Alps and keep hoping for a snowy winter.
