Ski touring

 

Ski touring combines alpine hiking and skiing and is one of the most popular sports in the High Tatras.

Groomed ski slopes are ideal for ski tourers – beginners. However, they must keep maximum 2 m-distance from the right edge of the slope.

More experienced ski tourers can enjoy endless adventures that the Tatras have to offer. Valleys with white virgin snow or peaks with unforgettable views. Most of these routes are not marked and are available with a professional mountain guide only. (Ski tourers and climbers are not allowed to enter precious alpine environment from 15th April to 15th June.)

For ski touring, one needs the so called climbing skins. They glide upwards but don´t slide backwards so that the ski tourer can climb a hill easily.

 

  • Tips for beginners

1. From Hrebienok to Zamkovský´s chalet and Skalnaté Pleso – down a ski slope to Tatranská Lomnica
2. From Štrbské Pleso along a tourist trail to Mlynická dolina (valley) and back
3. From Tatranská Lomnica along a ski slope to Skalnatá chalet and back

  • Tips for experienced ski tourers

1. From Zbojnícka chalet through the kettle of Sivé plesá (tarns) to Priečne sedlo (saddle), from there to Téry´s chalet in Malá Studená dolina (valley)
2. From Téry´s chalet, below Mt. Mačacia veža to Baranie sedlo (saddle), along Veľká Zmrzlá dolina (valley) to the Chalet at Zelené pleso (tarn)
3. In Mlynická dolina (valley) to Skok Waterfall, then to Soliskové sedlo (saddle), along a ski slope up to the Chalet under Mt. Solisko

  • Suggested trips with a professional mountain guide

Mt. Patria, towering over Štrbské Pleso, is an easily accessible peak offering beautiful panorama views and safe descent on skis. The southern slope is very mild and wide, so any trajectory you use for the ascent or descent will be fine. The terrain is continuous without banks or rocks. Choose one of professional mountain guides to accompany you on the journey.
