SKI WINDOW

Best skiing may be on the way

ALTHOUGH the weather has turned a little milder, it should not harm the winter sports season as more waves of snow are expected. But the subfreezing temperatures will recede and temperatures at 1,000 metres and above should oscillate around zero during the week. About 20 additional centimetres of snow may fall this week. As there has now been an accumulation of natural snow in most of the ski resorts that should stay on the slopes, the best ski conditions of this season may be coming. There is even a long-term forecast for a meter of fresh snow before the beginning of March.

Some interesting winter events are on schedule. On February 27 another wild krňačky race in the Slovak Cup series will be held in Šumiac (www.krne.sk). Or on the same day, boarding enthusiasts can visit the O2 Snowboard Tour and Rookie camp – an event intended to teach young people snowboarding during their spring holidays. It will take place at Kubínska Hoľa with instructors Matys, Števulová and Ryba and snowboarders from Ypsilon team, followed in the evening by entertainment by HEX and Talkshow. A sprint and mid-level race for dog mushers will be held at Roháče in Zuberec on February 27 and 28.
