Ski resorts opening their doors

AFTER a quick start to winter in the mountains, ski resorts are starting to open for business. But conditions are still not ideal due to the frequently alternating warm and cold weather.

AFTER a quick start to winter in the mountains, ski resorts are starting to open for business. But conditions are still not ideal due to the frequently alternating warm and cold weather. The best location is surely Štrbské Pleso, where there is 70 centimetres of snow and daily ski-passes are on sale for Sk440.

This season’s surprise is in Vrátna – Chleb (1,200-1,550 m above sea level), where there is 50 centimetres of snow and good conditions. The slopes open there on December 8, and if you come that day dressed in a mask for St. Nicholas Day, you can ski for free.

The season is also in full swing at Donovaly, but so far only on the Záhradište slope, which is covered in 40 centimetres of snow. The resorts at Veľká Rača, Martinské Hole, and Malá Lučivná – Magura should start operating as well, but while weather conditions are still unpredictable, it’s best to follow the snow reports on www.holidayinfo.sk.

Weather reports say the beginning of December will be warm, with snow and rain in the mountains, until the second week of the month, which should be very cold.
