Our two nights in Slovakia were spent in a ski area parking lot. We arrived late in a rain storm. The forecast was for more rain for the next few days. We hoped for some clear weather. The next morning at 6:00 AM the mountain was clear. We bought tram tickets to the top. (The highest peak in the photo. It is surrounded by clouds.)
The first tram opened at 8:30, the second at 9:00, and we were scheduled to board the third at 9:20. This is nearing the top of the third tram.
The views were fabulous even though the clouds were moving in.
We hiked down form the top of the second tram, about 900 meters of very steep trail. My legs were sore by the time we got to the van.
