Slovakia has some of the best conditions for winter sports in all of

Europe. Even though Slovak ski resorts cannot boast the scale of

some in the Alps, the natural conditions of Slovakia's slopes,

aided by €millions invested in new runs, ski lifts, chair lifts,

snow-making facilities, hotels, restaurants and other facilities

have significantly improved the level of services in the recent

past. This year 60 of the more than 200 ski centres in Slovakia

were evaluated by Lavex and Sitour for quality and these

rankings will remain valid until May 2012. Here are the best ski

centres in Slovakia, those receiving 5 or 4 stars in the evaluation:
