The program helps to build ski slopes where those interested can learn to ski or snowboard with the help of qualified instructors.
The Office of the Government Commissioner for Active Hungary is providing support of HUF 68 million for the construction of four new plastic-covered tracks. Thanks to a 30 percent non-refundable subsidy, training tracks worth nearly HUF 230 million will be established in Székesfehérvár, Keszthely, Miskolc and Agárd.
The evaluation of the applications was prepared by the Hungarian Association of Ski Instructors (SMSZ).
The track of the four facilities will have a width of at least 10 meters and a length of at least 45 meters, as well as a lift and track lighting. They will also have a service building with a floor area of at least 45 square meters. The winners of the program tender must establish the training track by November 15, 2021.
Skiing and snowboarding are popular recreational sports, providing fun and exercise for hundreds of thousands of Hungarian families during the winter. However, learning is not easy. To avoid injuries, beginners should always seek the help of a qualified instructor so that they can learn safely and with someone who has the necessary experience.
The National Ski Slope Construction Program seeks to establish ski slopes according to appropriate professional criteria in Hungarian cities that have no such training slope. These educational ski schools have many advantages, such as being easily accessible even by public transport. The tracks can also be used regardless of the weather, from autumn to spring, and can open as early as September.
Although Hungarian skiers have relatively easy access to nearby ski resorts in the Alps and the Carpathians, ski resorts in Hungary also await those who love to ski.
