Fun in the Slovak slopes!
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Funnily enough my personal favourite was the last day - sledging (down a ski slope) - although made more exciting by 5 of us joining hands and going down backwards! Probably the most simple activity but due to the relationship of the group and the fact that everyone was willing to try anything fun and new it was such a good laugh and really rounded the holiday off in a way we couldn't imagine beforehand. Dog sledding was also a must not miss activity (unless it's too hot for the dogs, possibly in late Feb - March).
What did you think of your group leader?
Very good. Altough it was clear she was inexperienced at leading a group on this particular trip, she was very pleasant and made us all feel very welcome. Her only failing was not knowig all the locations and activities 100%, but this quickly proved not to be a huge problem. I particularly enjoyed discussing the history of Slovakia and her fascinating youth with her - a very interesting and warm person.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Yes, go on this trip! Excellent value (I spent a lot less than I budgeted for). I took Eu 350 with me and only spend 200. Plus the actual cost os pretty low for a trip of this kind. Food and drink is the only expense and it is very good value and a complete pleasure at that.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
If you have never skied and are interested or simply like the idea of a winter snow break, this is for you. My only reservation would be for seasoned downhill skiers or snowboarders, this may not be as exciting as you are used to - saying that I had been on 4 previous dedicated skiing holidays and totally loved it.
