Type of Trip
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.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
The group size will depend on the physical and technical conditions of the team. When the chosen route requires crampons and ice axe the maximum of participants per guide will be 4.
About the 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.
