Jasná Nízke Tatry, as the largest ski area in Slovakia and the top free ride resort in Central Europe with excellent conditions for winter sports, offers endless possibilities for activities, entertainment and active leisure on northern and southern slopes of Mt. Chopok. Apart from 49 km perfectly maintained ski slopes of various difficulties Jasná is a sought-after resort for wide possibilities of free riding.  

Free ride lovers come into their own in several free ride zones and a great snow park. By development of cableways running from the northern hillside (A1 Funitel) as well as the southern hillside (A2 Chopok Juh) an interconnection was created between the zones serving throughout the winter season. And thus the free ride became a more available alternative to skiing in Jasná.   


The north and the south of Chopok are totally different in their nature. The advanced free riders mostly prefer steep mountain couloirs in the north, the beginners and dedicated free riders will appreciate powder plains in the south. Jasná has been definitely the largest and the best approachable free ride resort in Slovakia. The winter season lasts generally from the beginning of December to the end of April.
The free ride area at Chopok is also a venue where the CGC JASNA ADRENALIN FWQ international competition has been held and is listed in the Freeride World Tour Qualifier.

PLEASE, READ BEFORE USING THE GUIDE BOOK

Skiing and snowboarding are marvellous but physically demanding sports where there is a risk of injury. The guide book is intended for advanced skiers and snowboarders, as the described terrain may be dangerous and requests a certain level of experience. For inexperienced free riders we recommend using services of a free ride guide, who is available at the TATRY MOTION FREERIDE CENTRE at Biela Púť.
