How do skiing prices in Zakopane compare to other ski resorts?
The prices to ski in Zakopane, Poland are lower that almost all other European ski resorts.
You may think that because the prices in Poland are much cheaper, the standard of equipment, lessons, and the slopes will be relevant however this is not the case. The slopes are perfect for beginner and intermediate skiers. The quality of the equipment rental is top class and our ski and snowboard lessons are provided by fully qualified, native English speaking instructors.
It is not only the skiing that is cheaper. Food and drink prices in most ski resorts are ridiculous. In the Polish ski resorts, prices do not increase significantly from those off of the slopes.
Which ski area is best for beginner skiing in Zakopane?
Zakopane has a vast number of small ski areas, most of which are suitable for beginner skiers.
When trying to decide which ski area is best for you as a beginner skier in Zakopane, there are a few things to consider. If you would prefer to stay close to town and only plan to ski for just a few hours then one of the local small areas will be best. Nosal, Szymoszkowa, Harenda, Gigant. However if you plan to progress and spend longer on the slopes then we suggest either Bialka Tatrzanska or Jurgow ski areas. These areas are much larger and have a more progressive slope structure allowing you more up to an intermediate skier more quickly.
What can I do if I don’t want to ski

What will happen on my first day of skiing with addventure tours?
After eating a good hearty breakfast, we will pick you up from your accommodation and head to the ski slopes. Make sure that you are prepared for the weather. The forecast is usually quite accurate however we suggest that you prepare for colder than expected weather.
The first stop will be the rental shop. It is very important that your ski boots fit well to make sure that you have full control of your skis and that you are not in pain.
The Addventure Tours instructors will be there to help you with this.
Once you have your ski boots on, skis prepared, helmet on and poles by your side, we need to learn once again how to walk. Ski boots are not the most comfortable foot wear and walking in them can be strange.
Your instructor will then take you and your beginner ski group to the beginner area and begin your lesson.
