“We hope the beginning of the season will be good because in our opinion, the arrival of winter looks great so far. The truth is that unless a wave of warm temperatures combined with rain comes in the course of next weeks, snow on the highest located ski piste could signal an earlier beginning of the ski season – on natural snow, which would make it truly special. All this depends on weather. In the saddle of Lomnické sedlo, there is already 70% of the snow cover which is required to launch skiing but we need to be patient and wait until the next snowfall. Snow groomers have begun to work there today, they are piling up snow and covering the rocky terrain. Hereby we would like to inform all skiers and ski tourers that the slope of Lomnické sedlo is closed at the moment,” said Ján Slamený, the director of the ski resort in Tatranská Lomnica.
Once the regular autumn maintenance is over, the cableways in the ski resort of Tatranská Lomnica should start to operate on 9th December. For more details about the operating times of cableways in autumn, please visit www.vt.sk and www.jasna.sk.

Chopok will be hosting a great party combined with a traditional Winter Music Opening event on 2nd December – The show must go on edition with the best Slovak DJs and the legendary Queenie band. Now we only need to wait for good weather conditions, freezing temperatures, low air humidity and the right wind direction so that snowmakers can begin working and skiers can enjoy their fun.
