Ski resorts are about more than just skiing.

The weather until the Easter holiday should remain stable and somewhat cloudy without any fluctuations in temperature. Altitudes of 1,500 metres should reach temperatures of about 3-6 degrees Celsius during the day that will fall to -5 degrees at night.
Skiiers will find the best skiing conditions on Lomnické Sedlo, or on southern slopes like Chopok, and in Štrbské Pleso.
With the ski season nearly over, ski centres have once again dropped their prices. For example, Chopok is running a sale in which skiiers can get three days for the price of two. Vrátka ski centre on Chleb is offering a special price of Sk550, for which you will also receive a special bonus - a serving of chalet owner's tea. It's possible the centres will prepare some last-minute events to end the season.
More significant price cuts are expected after the holiday, but, at that point, only ski centres in the High Tatras and on Chopok mountain will be in operation.
