Work a ski season in Slovakia

One of Europe's best kept skiing secrets are the resorts located in the Low Tatras and High Tatras in the north of Slovakia. Cheap flights from the UK, good transport links from the airport into the mountains, cheap food, drink and accommodation, huge investments in modern lift systems and well maintained pistes making skiing in Slovakia a joy, and best of all, the crowds have not yet caught on to what they are missing.

Stunning mountain scenery and spectacular lakes make the mountainous north of Slovakia popular with hikers and skiers and one of the main tourist areas. The largest of the more than one hundred ski resorts in Slovakia is Jasna, reaching almost 2000 metres in altitude, the tree-lined runs give a completely different perspective for anyone used to the blank canvas of the high Alps. Snow making facilities in this area guarantee snow for five months, along with snowparks and flood-lit evening skiing.
