Natural snow for the skiers

IT SEEMS like winter has completely settled in Slovakia. Until now, it has been below freezing but mostly dry.

IT SEEMS like winter has completely settled in Slovakia. Until now, it has been below freezing but mostly dry.

The natural snow forecast should now create a real winter atmosphere. Some 10 to 30 centimetres of snow may fall and it will remain below freezing in the mountains. The temperatures should stay between – 6 and – 2 degrees Celsius at heights above 1,000 metres and since most of the ski centres making artificial snow already have a sufficient base, the new snow can only improve conditions. We can expect any icy spots on the slopes to disappear and the surrounding landscape should look like a winter fairyland.

The Polish holiday season has started so the centres should start filling up with skiers from the north.
