It was a weekend business trip to Tatranská Lomnica - tourist resort located at the foot of Lomnický štít. This mount reaches 2634 metres and is second highest mountain in Slovakia (the highest one's Gerlachovský štít - 2654 metres).
I stayed with my colleagues in Grandhotel Praha. It's high standard hotel with well equipped conference room. Rooms were comfortable, food was delicious and jacuzzi prevented you from getting muscle sores after skiing.
The service, as expected in such hotel, was very good. To be honest, I wouldn't stay there on leisure trip because it was too luxurious. I would rather choose cheaper place, save that money and spend it on other activities
The closest ski lift was 900 metres away. Ski resort on Lomnica is as modern as Chopok - Slovaks did a really good job. Ski lifts are refurbished, very comfortable, quick and efficient.
The highest point you can get to is 2625 metres. There are 12 ski runs (including cross-country ones) which vary in difficulty so that skiers can test their skills. The longest trail is 6 kilometres long.
The difficulty of those ski runs was rather high too me - I just started my adventure with skiing as I used to snowboard before. I'd definitely recommend Lomnica to skiers who have at least 2 season's experience in skiing.
One of the most popular parts of this resort is the 'Francúzska mulda' ('French mulda') which is considered the steepest slope in Slovakia. You can ski down from 2196 metres directly to Tatranská Lomnica through Lomnické sedlo. Only for advanced skiers - I didn't dare to try it.
On the day I was skiing the weather was very favourable - it was nice sunny day, no wind at all. The views were magnificent. There was quite a lot of people but the resort's big enough to cope with crowds. I only wished there had been more snow but, generally, winter 2014/2015 in Europe was rather mild and there wasn't much snow.
