Yaro M. Kupčo – Vysoké Tatry

Winter hiking

The seasonal closure of selected hiking trails in the High Tatras lasts from November 1st to June 15th. At this time, nature and animals enjoy winter rest. / At this time, nature and animals are taking a winter rest. Closed are particularly trails with high altitude, saddlebacks and peaks. However, all the hiking trails leading to chalets are open all year round, except for Chalet under Mt. Rysy (Chata pod Rysmi).

Don’t forget to:

  • check the weather, current snow conditions and warnings (Tatra Information Centre, Mountain Rescue Service)
  • pack winter equipment according to the current conditions and know how to use it – poles, crampons, ice axe, perhaps even avalanche gear
  • get a mountain insurance, enter your name in a book of hikes in your accommodation and inform your loved ones about where you’re headed.

An open hiking trail doesn’t mean that it is maintained and safe. Always consider the current conditions and your own skills and be prepared to come back at any time.
