Donovaly


Donovaly is a village in the Banská Bystrica Region of central Slovakia. Being situated in an important pass between the mountains of Velká Fatra and Starohorské vrchy, on the route connecting Banská Bystrica with Ruzomberok, it became a prominent centre of winter and summer sports.

Donovaly is a part of Low Tatras National Park, and it hosts one of the biggest and most popular ski resorts in Slovakia. Elevation is between 910 - 1,402 m, and there are more than 11 km of ski slopes, 17 lifts and elevators. In 2006, the Telemix lift by POMA, France - the 3rd of this kind in the world - was installed. It consists of 6 seated lift chairs, and 8 seated cabins, so the skiers can choose how they will go up to the top. Winter season starts from end of November and lasts until late March, beginning of April. It is also renowned for its dogsled racing championships.
