Park snow is a nice place for a few days of skiing. Good facilities with slopes of different difficulties, and a single board-park slope with obstacles. There weren't many tourists when we where there, and most of the guests seemed to be local, which is nice. You can get a beer and hot meal for around 5€, a fair price... More

Close to Hungary yet already the Tatra. Unfortunately end of season so not all slopes are available. Lifts are in good condition, prices are rather low.

Park Snow Donovaly is great skiing center for beginners (Záhradiště) and advanced as well (Nová Hola). I recommend going to Nová Hola: less people and better slopes then at Záhradiště. Be careful: I dirtied my jacket of one ski lift chair (there was some oil on it :(

Dear Jakub, thank you very much for your feedback. After wet weather with lots of snow or rain it might happen in every ski resort that the oil can dirty the clothes. It is used in every rope of lifts and chairlifts. But fortunately it is easy to clean it up. We are looking forward to your next visit in... More

This little town is perfect for people who enjoy a little privacy. Not very crowded and the views are amazing both in summer and winter.

We came here on the last day of our Slovakia trip. We wanted to give the kids some good experience to finish off the vacation.

Lot of easy slopes (blue) for beginners was actually what we were looking for our kids :-) There are few (3-4) red/intermediate slopes (which I would count as a single slope) starting at Nova Hola. Good for one day trip.

It's good for beginners, mostly blue slopes. The sad thing was that 2 days from 4 the snow was melting and no one maintained the slopes, there were many dirty parts on the slopes where we could see the soil. And on the higher slopes we found ice, so it wasn't good enoguh for skiing in the half of our... More
