During snow times, no tourist paths without rod signs above the tree line are considered marked.

During winter, some of Tatras paths are closed due to the following reasons:

  • seasonal close offs- mostly paths from one valley to another (over mountain passes)-those with valid climbing card (JAMES, CHS, ...) may pass these, but only for reasons of a peak climb and must follow the climbing trail at all times.
  • other impending danger (avalanches, ...) - these close offs may only be crossed by the members of Tatran Mountain Rescue, TANAP (Tatran National Park) guards, forest guards and Nature Conservation guards.
  • nature and environment protection close offs - these close offs may only be crossed by the members of Tatran Mountain Rescue, TANAP guards, forest guards and Nature Conservation guards.
  • Direct instructions of members of Tatran Mountain Rescue, TANAP guards, forest guards and Nature Conservation guards are obligatory for all visitors.
Every violation of TANAP Visiting Order is under penalty:
- transgression- fine
- harming nature - crime - passed over to the prosecution of Slovakian Republic

We recommend asking for information from Mountain Rescue regarding the paths status before any journey.
