SK, High Tatras – Climbing Over the Winter Ridge
The winter in the Tatras is in full swing and we would like to present you a very interesting publication that captures the complete crossing of the ridge of the High Tatras in winter conditions. And without leaving out heavy climbing peaks or entire ridge sections (in 1974).
At the end of last year, a book was published to commemorate this lesser-known mountaineering performance. In spite of several previous transitions of the High Tatras ridge, its full crossing in winter conditions was realized only in 1974. It was one of the significant achievements of the young generation of climbers of those times, which gave climbing - the philosophy of life - the value of sports clearly in the first place.
For today's mountaineering generation, the motivation for this is to find and overcome new climbing challenges. We believe not only in the far-off mountains, but also in the neighboring Tatras.
A new book published by the Mountain Internet Club describes the transition of the 1974 High Tatra Mountains in color photographs directly from the ridge, but the five-member "hrebeniarov" cooperative and its logistically less demanding support by a group of eight "valleys" are described. Authors of the publication are Alojz Halaz and Juraj Zatko.
The book The Tatier Winter Ridge is sold out in regular bookshops but is available in limited quantities here.
We also draw attention to a relatively new book documenting the selection of ski slopes and tours in our most famous mountain ranges.
Under the name of the publication The Selection of Skiing and Skialpine Treks, there is a guide presenting this adrenaline sport in the purest and most beautiful form. The skier-skier stays away from the circus of the ski resorts and can experience not only the exertion of exits but also the joy of a unique ride in virgin snow on steep slopes.
You can order both of these publications via the Tatrica Publishing House or win. Just tell us by January 28, 2019 the name of at least one of your favorite ski resorts at firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be announced on our social networks.

The Western Tatras are the most beautiful and most charming in autumn - when the grassy slopes of the ridges and moutains as well as the trees are painted in bright shades of brown, yellow-brown and reddish-brown. In this article, we will introduce the transition of the autumn Alpine landscape, our goal will be the highest mountain of the Western Tatras - Bystra mountain.
The Western Tatras is very popular and frequented mountain range. Treks here, the main ridge especially, are amazing and people who go there long remember it. Ostry Rohac is perhaps the most attractive and most well known peak in this area. Many tourists hike across it every year.
"There in the hilltops, on their very top close to the blue skies yet far from fertile soil. There is the beginning of waters and end to the bread. People have not much of wealth yet much of honor as it usually is when one looks God's into his eyes."
