Nice. So you know then how many people are always there. Today the longest queue was like 5 m long.

impossible

But it was quite cold, abote -12°C or even less and it was snowing all the time. I was so shocked of prices :P it is like in Alps.

and journey home with petrol in diesel engine was quite "funny" btw, poor you, that accident looks horrible

Once I drove with diesel in a petrol engine and I didn't have to repair anything, although I barely made it to a gas station.

I heard if you have half of diesel and half of petrol it is ok. But we had 54 l of petrol and 24 (? basically the rest of it) l of diesel. Car was ok, but then after 50 km engine just stoped. It happened once like this a few years ago and they just changed fuel in car and it was ok.

I see, that Jasna has the same skipass prices like in Slovenia. 8 years ago, when I was there, there were only half that price. How much is now beer beside ski slope? It was about 0,5 € 8 years ago.

It is just weird now. Prices are like in Alps but quality is worse. Beer is 1,80 € and 2 € there. Normally you can buy beer in Slovakia for 1 € (it was Zlatý Bažant.. exactly). Sausage with chips is 7 €, Parená buchta (germknedel?) is for 4€ in Italy it is for 3€, soups for 2,50/3 €, coke, sprite, vinea, kofola for 2,50 € (just 0,5 l normal price is 1€) !!

awful prices..

one day skipass is for 31 € and half of skicentre was closed, well it wasn't closed but lifts to Chopok North were closed

Chopok North (whichis basically another side of the hill and ski centre) -

Breaking News

Northeastern US is paralyzed Transportation wise.....

A Travel ban is infect for some cities , meaning no driving is allowed or else a fine. The Railways North of NYC are shut down due to downed wires and winds up to 60mph. Other Railways are operating Diesel trains only and on a reduced timetable. A Few Subway lines are shut down in NYC. Very few people are on the streets in NYC , which is very rare. Sidewalks are completely blocked meaning the few souls that are out are in the streets. A Few Highways are shut down due to icy conditions. All Airports are closed .....About 18 inches of snow has fallen outside my house and its the powdery kind....so the wind is blowing it into drifts.......The Street has lasted less then 24hrs and is in the top 5 strongest in Northeastern history. I will post my before and after pictures later ....

In 3 winters of skiing at Jasna I managed to get on Chopok peek just once, and not because I didn't want to go there, but the skilift that went that high was always closed.

Pictures taken by myself and my father the only time we reached Chopok:

Arriving on Chopok by skilift:


Some buildings on the top (meteorological center?):

There are always some problems with that lift. They want to build there a new cableway next year -



I hope it will be done in a next year. There is something new also this year -



New "reštaurácia" - http://www.jasna.sk/stredisko/fotoga...isku/sk/zima/#

And another new cableway in Tatranská Lomnica -

Slovakia is great

ChrisZwolle- I remember you have posted a picture showing camera's holder you use in your van. I have recently bought a dslr and unfortunately it is too heavy for a holder I have. Would you be so kind and repost that picture and make some description regarding your holding device.

OMG! Look at this road from Japan:





Quote:
The section of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route linking the Tateyama station and Ogizawa only open from mid April to November, the reason for this hiatus is wintry snow, snow on this section reaches a thickness of 20 meters the most amazed of all is that in mid-April, much of the snow still lingers, so you have to make real corridors of ice to get through that stretch.
