The ski resort is located 950-1078 m above sea-level, 32 km from the district center Skole, at the source of the river Tysovets and on the slope of Mount Yanovata.
The first mention dates back to 1538. According to some other documents the village was founded by Yanush Ostrozkyi in 1618. There were 24 houses and 124 villagers (all of them were Ukrainians) in 1880.
The territory around Tysovets was used for military forestry and as a training field (the members of the Warsaw Pact used this territory for their tank practice). Because of that all the villagers were deported in 1963, their houses were destroyed.
An old wooden Church of St. Mykhail (1863) — a typical example of Boikivskyi temple — was relocated to Lviv open air museum in 1972.
Army Tank Training Centre was re-formed into a sport-sanitary complex in 1977.
Tysovets today is a sport-sanitary complex of winter sports of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine. Sportsmen can practise ski jumping, biathlon, skiing, Nordic Combined, mountain-skiing, freestyle, slalom, etc. It’s a unique complex in Ukraine that provides an opportunity to practise in a mid-mountain region. The infrastructure of the complex includes a chairlift and three drag lifts, different ski-mountain routes, biathlon tracks, cross-country skiing and a gym.
Tysovets is famous for its unique 500-metre mogul skiing track which is a kind of freestyle. It is also an Olympic sport and they often hold mogul skiing competitions here.
Tysovets is based on a developed infrastructure with perfectly organized technology of servicing guests — a lot of nice apartments that vary in price range, great food and a wide selection of equipment rental.
There is a ski resort in the village Oryavchyk next to Tysovets. To the south of Tysovets you can visit Kozii, a natural monument with a unique beech forest and some elements of a beech virgin forest.
