Jakubkova lúka is perfect for beginner skiers thanks to its easy piste. Discounted ski passes valid exclusively at this ski area are offered, which is appreciated by casual skiers and complete beginners. Snowmaking ensures guaranteed snow conditions.

Hrebienok, a favourite spot for winter hiking to the Studený potok waterfall or alpine chalets, has also become known for the Tatry Ice Master ice sculpting event and this year visitors will once again see the ice basilica – Tatranský dóm. A funicular railway travels up to Hrebienok from Starý Smokovec.
