The SNOW Cross-country Skiing Resort

The most opportunities

Quality services for athletes and the public

The SNOW Cross-country Skiing Resort in the High Tatras offers quality facilities for all. Whether you enjoy cross-country skiing recreationally or professionally.

Cross-country skiing throughout the season

Štrbské Pleso offers regularly-prepared professional cross-country skiing trails.

You will find eight loops measuring 1.4 to 5 kilometres. The stadium and loops up to 2.5 km long can be used throughout the winter season thanks to artificial snow.

Some trails are endorsed by a FIS certificate, most being of mountainous character with vertical drops, suitable for fitness and sport skiing. Children, beginners and recreational skiers will be delighted too – with two loops and the stadium trail.

The resort is open to the public from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. (including evening skiing). All trails are closed and prepared after 6 p.m. Please do not enter the trails! The Snowcat is bigger and faster than you - and a coming-together is unpleasant for both parties.

Nature conservation

All the quiet white trails run through living natural environment. Please be considerate when on them. Everybody is allowed to enter forests at their own risk and, at the same time, everybody is required to behave in a way that does not damage the national park.

Do not enter the trails after 6 p.m. Preparing of the surface is performed by Snowcats towed on a steel rope - it’s never pleasant and potentially dangerous to meet them.

The fee according to the price list for organized groups and sports clubs is paid to the administrator of the SNOW Štrbské Pleso cross-country skiing resort.

Entry fees for individuals, clubs and other organized groups in sports clubs.

Your kind contributions are only used for:

  • the maintenance and service of cross-country skiing trails and the car park
  • snow making
  • lighting
