Description

Climbing the Lomnicky in the winter is one of the best experiences of Slovakia. In just half a day we will enjoy a unique excursion with beautiful landscapes of the Tatras mountains.

Before starting the ascent to Lomnicky, I will provide you with the necessary information about risks and avalanche management, with a brief practical training. Both the ascent and the descent of the mountain will be done by the classic route, through what locals call Lomnické sedlo, a chair lift that reaches 2,190 meters in height. This is literally like getting to the roof of the Tatras.

To safely enjoy this winter ascent in Lomnicky, it will be necessary to know how to use technical ice climbing equipment such as crampons and ice axes. Therefore, in addition to technical knowledge and previous experience it will be necessary to be physically trained. Keep in mind that in a lapse of 5 or 6 hours we must face an altitude change of 500 meters and snowy slopes of approximately 50º of inclination.

If you’re an advanced climber and love winter challenges, this program is for you. Send your request now and make your reservation!

Mountain Guide

I was born in Poprad and I live, work and relax in the High Tatras. I have been climbing in this region for 15 years both in summer and winter.
Since 2001 I am a professional rescuer with a completed Bachelor education in Urgent Medical Care. Furthermore, I work in The Experts Mountain Rescue Service (in High Tatras) as an avalanche specialist.
In 2009, after passing the entrance examination for mountain guiding, I started the roundabout course. In April 2010, I became a mountain guide aspirant in the National Association of Mountain Guides of the Slovak Republic.
In 2011, during the final course in Chamonix - Mont Blanc (France) I successfully completed the course of mountain guide during four days of tests, under the strict supervision of Technical Commission NAHVSR instructors. Since then, I am a mountain guide with the IFMGA / UIAGM international license.
Thanks to this job (and hobby) I am pleased to expand the horizons of my clients and share with them my knowledge and experience as a mountain guide.

What people are saying about Kuna

We spent 2 days with Pavol as he introduced us to ice climbing. Upon meeting him, we were pleased with his professionalism and his impressive experiences climbing around the world. It didn't take long for us to realise his expertise on the mountain, as well as his passion and down to earth attitude. Over 2 days, in 2 different locations, we got learn the basics of ice climbing on some serious ice falls. He gave us advice on techniques and strategies to get us climbing higher and more efficiently. The whole time Pavol made us feel very safe and in control, as daunting as ice climbing may be. In the end we had a great time and learnt a lot, and he left us hungry for more. He definitely showed us this is a sport and passion we can keep following. We hope to climb with Pavol again next time we visit Europe.
