We are two families with 4 adults and 3 kids and thinking of having a ski week in Austria or in Slovakia around Christmas. We are thinking of Jasna in Slovakia and some other places in Austria. I was thinking Slovakia could be cheaper, but one of my Slovak friend told me that Tatras is in no way cheaper than Austria and he would rather recommend Austria considering the quality of service we could get at the same price. His opinion is that the Tatras is overpriced with the recent hordes of tourists. I am not sure how objective his opinion since he said he didn't have ski holidays himself in the Tatras.
Considering the cottage rentals and dining out and hiring skis and lift fees, is the Tatras really more expensive than Austria?
