Skitours and huts

Žiarska chata is a mecca of Slovak skialpinism. The rugged terrain allows tours to many peaks and saddles above Žiarská Valley - Hrubá kopa, Baranec, Prislop, Pachola, Smutné sedlo, Plačlivo, Žiarske sedlo a Lúčne sedlo. A large avalanche in 2009 destroyed the hut and was reconstructed.
