IDEAL PLACE FOR SKIING AND WINTER TOURS

The resort’s location directly on the ridge of one of our highest mountains guarantees the most abundant snow. The surrounding area offers several ski resorts.
For those looking for truly alpine skiing, the resort Jasná, Chopok Juh, 25 km away from the cottage, is easily accessible. Winter hiking with snowshoes or alpine skis also has its charm. Popular destinations in the area are the Čertova svadba (1,463m amsl), Lajštroch (1,602m amsl), Beňuška (1,542m amsl) and the Končisté hill (1,474m amsl). Cross-country trails in the area with beautiful views have become extremely popular. Up to 15km of groomed cross-country trails are available throughout the season.

STIV SKI RESORT ČERTOVICA

About 200 metres from the cottage there is the second, a bit smaller, resort STIV Čertovica. It is intended for less or intermediate demanding skiers. It offers two lifts and about 1km of groomed slopes along with a free ride zone. The resort is located at an altitude in the range of 1,238 to 1,381 metres, so it does not suffer from the lack of snow. And if there is little snow, an artificial snow system will take care of the snow cover throughout the winter.

BYSTRIANSKA CAVE

The cave is located 20km from Chata pod sedlom Čertovica in the village Bystrá, at a short distance from Brezno, just before Mýto pod Ďumbierom. It is the most important cave in the Horehronie valley. Cavers first entered it in 1926, but it was not opened to the public until 1968. The cave is 3,531m long, but the public can see only 545 metres. It is also suitable for immobile visitors, as there are only 20 easy-to-climb stairs. The entrance to the cave is located at an altitude of 565m only about 120m from the parking lot. It is characterized mainly by narrow and high corridors, however, you will also find beautiful halls with dripstone decoration, such as the Hall of Canopies or the Collapsed Dome. There is an abyss Hell, up to 56 metres deep, and you will be accompanied by several species of bats during the visit.

GOLD MINE – SALVATOR

Enthusiasts from the Salvator civic association in the village of Vyšná Boca opened the gold mining tunnel to the public in 2018. It is only part of the former extensive system of mining tunnels, which had up to four floors and four independent entrances. In the 16th and 18th centuries the mine was worked by the mining company Salwatoris gold bergwerk under the administration of the Royal Mining Chamber. Gold, silver and copper were mined here. According to some sources, the local mines produced up to 60 kilograms of gold per year.
