Ski School The Patty Ski has been operating on Donovaly since 1989. It was founded by Mgr.Jiří Vlček – a deserving ski trainer and coach of the former Czechoslovak Republic. He developed the method of ski instruction, which has become the basis for our teaching. According to his method, we have already learned to ski and snowboard tens of thousands of children and adults alike. Children like to come back to us, whether to just say hello to us, also at the beginning of the season to repeat the basics, or what we learned to ski, learn to learn snowboarding. Children’s skiing and snowboarding can be started in 3-4 years; adults are not age boundaries.
