Jasna, Chopok – Snowboarding 2019

I have been longing for quite some time to go snowboarding somewhere outside of Romania. After sharing my thoughts with my friends we ended up deciding on Jasna, Slovakia. Chopok being the highest altitude in the Low Tatras, Slovakia planning to do the Winter Olympics there in 2022, we were pumped about it. We wanted to go big on this.

It’s a five hour journey from home to this small town called Mikulas, where we are planning to stay for next couple of days.

Our enthusiasm kind of dropped once we arrived and we saw that is raining. It was heavily raining outside, the parking spaces were flooded and 80% of the slopes closed. I started to believe that we took a bad decision when we decided to buy a 2 day ticket.

Well, we did a 600km journey to get to this place, so we didn’t do such an effort to stay inside and skip snowboarding and skiing. We went for it.

We could go up to 1600m altitude which still gave us a nice ride down, despite the rain.

After a good few hours on the slope, we got soaked wet and decided to go home, warm up and get some rest. Hoping to be more lucky the following day.
