Get to the World Cup by train!
A 25% discount on travel fees to Liptovský Mikuláš will be provided by the Railway Company Slovakia during the World Cup.
The company will become an official transport partner of the Organising Committee in the Slovak Republic.
,,As a traditional domestic railway company, we are pleased that we have the opportunity, after more than 30 years, to be part of the first World Cup ever in Slovakia. I believe that our contribution can facilitate the arrival of fans from all over Slovakia to Jasná and experience this great atmosphere", said Pavol Gábor, General Director of Railway Company Slovakia.
,,We highly appreciate the partnership with Railway Company Slovakia, in particular, their offer to passengers. We believe that it will be an incentive for many visitors to use railway transport instead of a car. The World Cup is primarily a festival of fun and sport, especially aimed at young people and in this respect a train is certainly safer and more comfortable option than a car. What´s more, every fan who leaves his car at home and uses train to get to the venue, will lighten the traffic flow which will be slightly higher at the time of the race than other days", Said Bohuš Hlavatý, Chairman of the Organising Committee of the World Cup in Jasná.
The price reduction will apply to all tickets from all over Slovakia to Liptovský Mikuláš on 3.5 - 3.6 2016. For those arriving by train shuttle service will be arranged from the adjacent bus station directly to the resort.
It´s worth coming to young people to Jasná already on Friday. Our weekend programme will start with an evening party at Happy End Club. Weekend itself will certainly be the main programme. The duel of our largest favourites in the giant slalom for the overall World Cup victory is expected on Saturday. After the second round a big party starts in front of Happy End, including a draw for the Sunday's race in women´s slalom, which Slovak fans are certainly waiting for, since Veronika Velez Zuzulová and Petra Vlhová can fight for historical success on the domestic snow.
In addition to the finish line, enough FAN zones are to be prepared for viewers with free entry. Another fan zone overlooking the most dramatic section of the trail will be ready for skiers at Priehyba. One section of the ski trail Biela Púť will also be changed into a new huge fan zone with a wide screen, a DJ and refreshment. Located in front of the well-known club Happy End, World Cup Village will be the main fan zone directly in the resort, where thousands of fans will have the possibility to watch the race. Another wide screen will be located there for viewers. This will be the place where the „Fun radio Dohoda in the snow“ event will start immediately after the race.
Women's World Cup Race in the giant slalom and slalom in Jasná will be held on Saturday and Sunday on 5 and 6 March 2016.
An ambassador of the event is the representative of Slovakia Veronika Velez-Zuzulová.
