Velka Raca skitour (Slovakia) - Feb 19

Todays forcast was not very favorble so we have chosen an easy on-piste tour. Our dear friend Martin acompanied us. We went to a ski resort called Velka Raca and went up along piste called Laliky. We chose skitour/hiking track 15. This track ends at the top Laliky ski lift station. We continued further along the ridgeline until the peak Velka Raca, which is actually just on the boarder to Poland. The view from there is pretty good, considering it is just 1236 m.a.s.l.

The tour starts from Stumplingbahn parking lot. Small descent on skis (I forgot about it and put my skins :-)). The climb goes through the forest half way up. As soon as the forest ends, it opens with possibilities for some freeride. [ Read More... ]

Ski resorts are getting back to normal, no more road closures around (few are still closed even today but much less than before). Time to find a spot for tour today? Yes! [ Read More... ]
