looking for help, myself and a couple of friends are looking to spend a long weekend in February in Slovakia skiing (intermadiate to advanced). Does anyone have the information as to the best place for this as well as some decent night life?

thanks

1. Re: best skiing near Bratislava

If you want skiing then Bratislava is not the place to look. You need to fly to Poprad if possible as that is closer to the action, but you would have to get to London first, then you need to make your way to the slopes - Liptovský Mikuláš is probably the best place to stay - a very pleasant and sleepy little town at the foot of the Low Tatras. Otherwise it is a c. 6 hour train ride from Bratislava which takes away a lot of your time if you are only going on a long weekend.

Jasna (Low Tatras/Nizké Tatry) is the best ski resort - have a look through this for more informationhttp://www.skislovakia.sk/ however you might be leaving it a bit late as it is traditionally booked up months in advance, but in today's economic climate and the fact that Austria can be cheaper, means that there could be some special offers out there.

No idea about night life, I'm afraid :) There are loads of 'resorts' around, many of them very small consisting of a slope with possibly a pub/hotel at the bottom - possibly the nearest to Bratislava that I can think of is near Banská Bystrica, but tricky to get to without a car.

You could always fly to Krakow and hire a car from there, but it can be a bit hairy through the mountains in the winter.

Yes - Semmering is a good idea. There are a few posts about this in the Austria forum.
