The terrain of the highest located ski piste in Lomnické sedlo (saddle) has been monitored by grooming machines this week. Juraj Jancík, the head of the chairlift management, says there is 60 cm of snow in the saddle now. “The basic layer on the piste is very good. Lomnické sedlo needs natural snow to be opened. The weather forecast about snowing next week looks promising, we expect to get the snow amount that we need. We are doing our best so that skiers could enjoy the piste in Lomnické sedlo already during Christmas,” said Jancík.
The resort of Tatranská Lomnica is also preparing the Audi Ski Arena in the eastern section of the Čučoriedky piste, which should be opened soon.
