Cross-country skiing

Liptov is the “Mecca” of Slovak downhill skiing. Nevertheless, more than 70 km of cross-country trails, under optimal snow conditions, are available under the Liptov hills. The locals have created a guide to these cross-country trails, which maps the 20 most interesting locations suitable for cross-country skiers. The individual routes are taken care of and modified by their municipalities or local cross-country ski clubs.

Capable cross-country skiers, but also families with children, will enjoy themselves. All you have to do is choose a route suitable for your abilities in terms of length and elevation. The longest route is on the northern side of Liptovský Mikuláš with a length of 10.7 km in the locality Háj – village Smrečany – Dolinky – village Žiar, with an ascent of 168 m and a descent of 192 m. Intermediate cross-country skiers can try the almost five-kilometer-long route near Ružomberok, which connects the Hrabovská and Čutkovská valleys. The Hrabovo – Vlkolínske lúky route reaches the highest elevation. Children could enjoy the easy route in the Malinô Brdo locality, which does not have a single kilometre and a minimum elevation gain.
