High Tatras ski touring days from Popradske Lake

High Tatras ski touring days from Popradske Lake | undefined

Eduard, local IFMGA mountain guide, wants to guide you on the High Tatras and make you discover the best ski runs near the Popradske Lake in Slovakia.


+1 Day

Jan, Feb, Apr, Dec




Come ski for one or several days to the best corners of the High Tatras in Slovakia. We’ll start our tour from the iconic Popradske Lake (1494 m), a glacial lake one hour from the parking lot, our meeting point.

During these skiing adventures in the High Tatra mountains we’ll skin to the summit of the most emblematic peaks in the area and then enjoy fantastic ski runs, taking the best turns on pristine snow.

One of the key mountains we cannot miss is Rysy, the highest peak in the High Tatras shared by Poland and Slovakia. We will ascend from the Slovak slope and once at the top, we’ll ski down about 2000 meters. If we go for a multi-day ski tour, we can also spend one or two nights at the Chata pod Rysmi, a mountain hut at the foot of Rysy.

Another great option is to visit the Veľké Hincovo pleso, the biggest and deepest Slovak mountain lake. Then we’ll skin up to Kôprovský štít, a fantastic mountain with a beautiful 360º view and a route that follow the lake.

As for the technical and physical requirements, keep in mind that there will be some routes which require the use of crampons and ice axe. Anyway I can adapt the trip according to the level and skills of the group.

Mountain Guide

I’m an IFMGA mountain guide born in west Slovakia, in 1973. Nowadays I live in Poprad, a city 10 km away from the High Tatras, the mountains where I’ve been working for 25 years.

I came to High Tatras when I was student, in the summer of 1991. I started to work as a mountain carrier-sherpa in the chalet Rysy. I was also a professional member of the mountain rescue service.

In 2011, I finished my mountain education in Chamonix and became an international mountain guide. I also worked as a cave rescuer in Slovakia.

During winter, I enjoy ski-mountaineering, freeride, ice climbing and ascending different peaks. On the summer season, I practice mountain climbing, hiking, mountain bike, rock climbing, guiding and a lot of other sports.

Besides traveling with clients, I sometimes go to the mountain alone or with my friends and son.

I offer courses for avalanche education, ski-mountaineering, rock and ice climbing. I also organize special team-building activities for clients and I’m used to working with young people and children.

What people are saying about Eduard Kuro



Kuro is a very experienced and knowledgeable guide, and a great guy. Highly recommend.



Disorganised chaos. In spite of having booked months before we were given little information about what the trip would entail or where we were going. Extras included paying for the hire of snow boots & getting the cable car. All of which is not a problem but would have been handy to know - especially as the cost of the snow boots wasn't mentioned until we were on our way home. Eduard was very knowledgeable however he would only extend this knowledge to my male friend whom he told to encourage us as his English wasn't good (so why offer the service in English?). The climb itself was exhilarating & the setting truly beautiful.



Eduard took my husband and I ice climbing for our first time. Eduard took great care of us, had great communication and is a lovely person to spend a day with. He is an expert in the field and it shows! He took care of all the logistics on the trip to make our experience comfortable. The experience exceeded our expectations. We were both able to climb a beautiful waterfall and enjoy the High Tatras.



I had a nice time with the guide , he had to change the place and the date we climbed , because the weather was absolutely not favorable for the climb I originally booked ... I wonder what happens if the trip is canceled because the weather won’t allow it



The man is made for speed so you better train yourself well if you want to hike with Kuro. He is flying in those mountains :) The experience of hiking with him was amazing and i will highly recommend him.
