The village of Podbanske is the gateway to the Western part of the High Tatras (940 m above sea level). It is located in a tranquil area surrounded by forest and overlooked by the majestic Tatras peak named Krivan (2494 m). The untouched nature and fascinating fauna and flora in this area provide unforgettable experiences for visitors.

Podbanske is one of the smallest of the Tatra ski resorts, 32 km from Stary Smokovec and 13 km from Strbske Pleso. The Ski area is a location favored mainly by beginners and families with small children. School ski trip organizers find the small vertical drop and ideal place to introduce learners to the art of skiing. There are three ski lifts providing a capacity of 1,150 lifts per person each hour. The area has excellent snow conditions and virtually no queuing to use the facilities the whole of the year round.
