Short Version
The skitouring in Tatra mountains becoming more and more popular every year. Mountaineering is big challenge and is a big passion for many people around the world. The beautiful valleys of Tatras, steep couloirs and gantle forest freeride in Low Tatras giving a full joy for every freerider.

The mountain huts are very well prepared for all ski alpinists to give them excellent service after long day up in the mountains. The tour selection is wide. Ideal alpine terrain for winter and spring skiing. Great mountain scenery. Great summit ascents and descents. Enjoyment of skiing in the smallest high mountain range in the world – HIGH TATRAS.
  • Skitouring in Low, West and High Tatras
What you can expect
Our skitouring weekend goes in all 3 Tatras mountain regions – in the Low, West and High Tatras. Each ski tour offers a different terrain, views and experiences. The tours are peppered with atractive mountain climbing. They are not extremely heavy, but still require good physical condition and corresponding skiing technique.


Thursday: Meeting point at Chopok South – Cottage (Chata) Trangoška (1100 m). Upon request pick up from Bratislava/Poprad airport. Meeting with your guide, check the nessesary equipment and program discussion. Dinner and relax.

Friday: Ďumbier (2043 m). The highest peak of Low Tatras. Easy level of difficulty to start our Tatra ski mission. To the summit it is about 4 hours climb including a lunch break on Štefánikova Hut (1728 m) on the way up. Skiing down the southern face of Ďumbier to Trangošská valley.

4 hours and 940 meters
Evening move by car to Žiarska valley in Western Tatras (1 hour drive) and skin-up (2 hours) to Žiarska hut (1325 m).

Saturday: Smuté saddle (1965 m) and peak Hrubá kopa (2166 m). Morning skin-up to Smutné saddle and peak Hrubá kopa takes about 2-3 hours. Skiing down to Žiarska hut with the lunch break and down to car.

4 hours and 800 meters
Afternoon move by car to Cottage on Popradské tarn (1495 m) in High Tatras (1 hour drive).

Sunday: Rysy (2499 m). The highest peak in Poland. Skin-up to the Frog lakes is very comfortable, then comes a steep slope that is passable only with crampons. We will arrive into the rocky valley of Rysy with the small Hut under Rysy (2250 m), the highest hut in Slovakia. From here we can already see saddle (sedlo Váhy). The summit is still hiding. After some snack at the Rysy hut we will soon reach the summit ridge. We have to take off skis, focus on each step and finally reach the summit. Skiing down the same way.

5 hours and 1000 meters
