Jasná’s hotels are strung out along the road from the town of Liptovský Mikuláš to the head of the valley 17km away. There isn’t a resort centre as such, but the hub of Jasna is at the foot of the lifts at Biela Pút near the end of the valley, where there’s a couple of four‑star hotels, a daytime restaurant and a couple of sports shops. Free shuttle buses run along the valley, serving the various car parks, accommodation, and three entry points to the slopes.
