JASNA SKI RESORT
With modern lifts, facilities and well maintained slopes, the region has developed the reputation as central Europes premier ski resort – “best upcoming resort” at the World Snow Awards in London – also voted in the top 50 ski resorts in the world in the Telegraph in 2011
The resort is spread over the north and south sides of Chopok mountain, one of the highest peaks in the Low Tatra range. Each side is serviced by its own lifts and restaurants and has a different feel. The new lift added in 2013 season now means that both sides of the mountains are easily accessible, doubling the rideable area for all.
There is excellent facitilites for learners and advanced skiiers alike, with plentiful area for picking up the basics and an array of “freeride zones” – which is essentially designated off piste which few rarely venture to, giving for peaceful, untouched freshies on a regular basis.

For Beginners the resort could not be any more suitable! There are plenty of areas that are all served by chairlifts and gondolas that will allow you to get the best out of your first experience on the snow. Not only that, but we have some of the best priced instructors in resort who speak English as their first languages to help get you up and moving on your first days in resort.
The resort offers excellent progression for intermediates to get about the mountain and feel the progression. A mix of long winding blue runs that lead into the reds will get you feeling confident and fulfilled each day. Our guides can show you around the hill daily if you want to see something more.
Each year the resort hosts the Red Bull Freeride world tour event which is a qualifier for the overall finals. The resorts freeride zones are what makes the resort much much larger on paper than it looks on the map. You have lots of chutes and off piste areas that are all accessible by the lifts as well as endless tree runs - to some degree, you can pick a tree line and almost always come out back at a lift.
