The ski season in the Low Tatras began on 5th December 2014. Slopes leading from the top of Mt. Chopok were opened for all keen fans of winter sports and the winter was welcome in a symbolic way – by lighting the highest located Christmas tree. Skiers will be enjoying the following slopes on the southern side of the mountain during the upcoming weekend: C13 Biela Púť, C2 Májová, 1a Pretekárska – Luková, 1b Pretekárska Konský Grúň – Luková and 1c Pretekárska Chopok – Konský Grúň. Slope no. 1 Pretekárska, section Priehyba – Záhradky will be opened from Saturday as well. There will be more than 5 km of ski slopes available on the southern side after the weekend. Skiers who come to Mt. Chopok on Friday 12th December 2014 from the southern side – from the direction of Brezno and leave their cars at the car park of Krupová or Srdiečko, will pay only 5 EUR for their ski pass at the ticket office and can ski all day long on both sides of the mountain. The southern side offers good snow conditions, the slope of Slnečná no. 31, section Kosodrevina – Srdiečko was opened last weekend, black slope no. 33, the slope of Zjazdárska and connection no. 51, section Predné Dereše – Kosodrevina will be opened on the following Sunday. Skiers will be enjoying more than 3.7 km of slopes of various difficulty levels, which means Mt. Chopok will be offering 8.7 km of groomed trails on both sides together. If the weather allows the ski resort operators to continue with making snow, slope no. 36 called Krupová might be opened on the following weekend as well.
