NEW IN WINTER 2013/2014
WATER PARKS
Winter in the region of Liptov - that´s great skiing on
70 kilometres of ski slopes, more than 100 kilometres
of cross-country skiing tracks, ski touring, walking
across a snow-covered country, hot water in water
parks, beautiful caves, monuments of folk culture.
There are two small ski resorts in the town of Liptovský
Mikuláš - district Podbreziny with a 700-metre-long ski
slope and district Iľanovo with a 350-metre-long ski
slope. Both resorts have man-made snow and lighting.
Other resorts within the radius of 30 km from the town
invite tourists to enjoy winter fun as well - Jasná Low
Tatras, Ružomberok - Malinô Brdo, SKI Žiarce - Pavčina Lehota, Skicentrum Opalisko - Závažná Poruba,
Javorovica Liptovský Ján, Vyšná Boca, Čertovica and Žiar - Dolinky. The largest one is the resort of
Jasná Low Tatras, which is the largest resort in all Slovakia. It offers various slopes on the northern
and southern side of Mt. Chopok, which are
interconnected via modern cable cars. There is a
24-person Funitel cable car in the north and a 15person cable car in the south. Skiers will have 30
cable cars and ski lifts plus 45 km of ski slopes at
disposal. Upper cable car stations on top of Mt.
Chopok are interconnected via a new Rotunda
restaurant, which offers accommodation and a
unique 360°panorama view. Adrenaline lovers
can frolic in 12 freeride zones and a great snow
park. This year, there will be a new 6-seater
chairlift in the area of Lúčky. It is located next to a
side car park, which will add more comfort for skiers. A new GOPASS e-shop is an absolute hit of this
season. It offers ski passes online for lower prices. Relaxation in Liptov water parks will do you good
after a day spent on the slope. There are three to choose from. Any of them will be the right choice.
The Tropical Paradise in Tatralandia offers
constant temperatures of 30°C and enables
sunbathing even in mid winter thanks to a special
transparent roof. In Gino Paradise Bešeňová, one
can enjoy pleasant geothermal water that rises
from a depth of 1,987 metres. And those who set
out for Lúčky AQUA-VITAL Park will be embraced
by beautiful mountains while swimming and
relaxing. Ski resorts and water parks will be
interconnected via SKI&AQUA busses in this
winter season again. There will be 7 regular lines
operating from the Christmas Day to 21st April
2014. Lines that will not be that busy will cease to
operate on 30.3.2014. SKI&AQUA busses are free of charge for holders of the Liptov Region Card,
which offers discounts in 50 facilities and destinations in the region of Liptov. SKI&AQUA busses will
even take you to the largest town of the region of Liptov - Liptovský Mikuláš. Its historical town centre
is a pedestrian zone with various monuments, galleries, museums and pleasant cafés and restaurants.
We hope you will choose from everything the region of Liptov has to offer and go back home full of
positive energy, experiences and nice memories.
