Skiers will get there by car, parking being free.

“We ski daily from 8.30 to 16.00, the slopes have artificial snow and are adjusted every day. Our slopes are also lit, so we plan to launch evening skiing,” said Zuzana Hriňová, director of a ski resort in Demänová, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

New features to come

There is ski service, equipment rental, ski school and three gastronomic facilities. Children can enjoy snowtubing.
