Lomnické Sedlo is the only location this winter with the proper conditions for skiing.

Nevertheless, the forecast for the upcoming week looks promising. At the beginning, the temperature at altitudes of 1,500 metres should decrease to -5 degrees Celsius, allowing for at least artificial snow, and perhaps some natural snow fall as well. Though almost all events planned at winter resorts have been cancelled or postponed, snowboard fans will still meet in Vrátna between January 26-27 at the European Snowboard Cup, which is where Slovak Olympic silver medalist Rado Židek and Veronika Zuzuľová, a medallist from the recent slalom world cup in Kranjska Gora, train. And those keen on free exhibitions should not miss the third year annual Freeskiing Challenge 2007 in Donovaly on January 27.
What's left to say? Probably just "think snow."
