Ski Hungary

There are around 15 Hungary ski areas with some on bigger mountains that is widely known outside the country.

Most are centred around the Mátra mountains in the north of the country where half a dozen drag lifts serve a vertical of more than 500m, peaking at above 1000m above sea level.

Some of these are based around the Grand Hotel at Galyateto and facilities in the area include a biathlon range and when conditions are good a terrain park for boarders and freestyle skiers.

Another of the larger Hungarian ski resorts, although not quite up to international destination sacale, is Bükk. It is not quite so high as Mátra, peaking at 960m, but has a similar choice of drag lifts and a range of terrain from beginner to difficult so you can ski Hungary at all ability levels.

In recent years an increasing number of artificial surface ski slopes have also appeared across the country, some of which get snow covered in the winter too.

One of these, run by the local Pasarét ski school in the Hungarian capital Budapest, was built by Italian ski slope surface material manufacturer Neveplast and is 70 metres long and 10 metres wide in 2009, so Hungarians can now ski or board 365 days a year.
