Slovakia Tourism - Slovakia Ski and Winter Sports
Ski and winter sports in Slovakia are very prominent and popular given the mountainous topography of the region and the fact that much of the country is covered by snow for a greater part of the year.
In spite of its small area, which is mostly hilly, Slovakia is densely interwoven by a net of ski-tows and ski-lifts. More than 1000 ski-tows and 40 ski-lifts are in operation and their number is growing. From the top the terminal stations there are hundreds of down-hill pistes, from the very gentle – for beginners, to the most demanding, which comply with the international criteria for master competitions.
At present, approximately 50 skiing centres make use of artificial snow.
Snowboarding is the most dynamically developing winter sport, which acquires fans by, so to speak, geometric series in the whole world. Slovakia is no exception - the number of fans has been increasing every year also thanks to finished terrain in individual ski resorts. U-ramps and other opportunities for excellent surfing on snowboard is offered by all of the bigger skiing centres.
Ski-alpinism is a combination of cross-country skiing, mountaineering and alpine skiing. Its fans seek new opportunities for testing own stamina and strength in the extreme conditions of winter alpine nature. The Slovak mountains provide very good conditions for pursuing this sport, and ski-alpinism fans recommend Jasenská dolina in the Veľká Fatra Mts., the area of Chopok and Ďumbier in the Low Tatras, Malá Studená dolina and Veľká Studená dolina and Skalnatá dolina in the High Tatras, Roháče and Žiarska dolina in the Western Tatras, and the well known Vrátna dolina in the Malá Fatra Mts.
Bigger ski resorts offer well kept cross-country paths, but skiers' made paths can be found virtually by any village or tourist center.Slovakia is rather small so there is not much of "cross country".
