Slovakia plans huge investment in ski areas

5th May 2006, by Chris Gill

According to recent reports, Slovakia plans to invest heavily in improving its ski areas.

The operator of Slovakia’s leading ski areas wants to invest “at least 1.5 billion in the next five years and create around 20,000 jobs” to re-develop the main resorts.

Slovakia, once part of Czechoslovakia and a satellite state of the Soviet Union had more than 100 ski areas before the collapse of the soviet empire.  In recent years the main resorts have consolidated their position and made positive moves towards improving infrastructure.

The operators of the largest winter ski areas in the country -  Donovaly, Vysoké Tatry region, Velká Raca, Tatranska, and Jasná have co-joined on a marketing strategy for Slovakia and will issue a joint lift ticket next winter.
