Ski Holidays in Slovakia

Ski Holidays in Slovakia in the Tatras Mountains

I spent a great weekend looking into Ski Holidays in Slovakia checking out ski resorts and accommodation in the Tatras Mountains. Although the skiing is not extensive there is enough for good skiers and free-riders to have a good short-break or for beginners/young families for the week.  Transfer times are short and the hotels offer fantastic facilities including super wellness areas and good food at reasonable prices.  To add to the fun there are some large water parks heated by thermal springs offering indoor and outdoor pools with slides and extensive wellness areas in the valley nearby.  Your lift pass covers either a day on the slopes or entry to the water park offering a great alternative for young families or those wanting a break from skiing.

Flights (well priced and short transfer times)

Wizz Air offers flights from Luton to Poprad/Tatry in Slovakia for approximately £100 return.  Poprad is very small, newly built and just 20 minutes away from Tatranska Lomnica and 50 minutes from Jasna.  Wizz Air has flights on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday leaving Luton just after 2.00pm and departing Poprad at 18.15pm.  So you arrive in time to familiarize yourself with the resort and depart after skiing on the last day.
