Skiing in Zakopane
Time until the start of the 2021/22 skiing season
From Beginners…NosalIf appropriate, we may take beginners to the gentle nursey slopes at Nosal. Here, at the edge of Zakopane, are four very easy blue runs. Perfect for a family of first timers. There is also an excellent little inn, decorated in the traditional style and serving hearty Goral food.
…to Blacks. Kasprowy WierchFor the ultimate challenge, take the cable car ride to the top of Kasprowy Wierch. At 1,987 metres above sea level are two black runs, very steep at first before opening onto open bowls of glorious powder snow. Advanced skiers and snowboarders will be in good company here, for it was once the favourite haunt of Pope John Paul II, who skied here when he was the local priest!
and Apres SkiAll that activity creates hungry and thirsty skiers! Bialka Tartranska is happy to oblige, with mountain bars and restaurants dishing out mighty portions of wholesome food. There are pizzas and pasta, schnitzels and sausage, as well as traditional Polish food. At the top of Kotelnica, the Viewpoint Inn offers memorable panoramas of the Tatra, Gorce and Pieniny mountain ranges. It is quite a place to spend lunch. Families will love the waterpark at the base of the nursery slopes. There are flume rides and lazy rivers, plus a thermally heated outdoor pool, which is great fun to splash around in when it snows!
For a little extra, advanced skiers may also take advantage of our ski guiding service. Providing the conditions allow, we will take you off piste for some great back country skiing. We also run regular excursions across the border into Slovakia, where the resort of Jasna offers world class alpine skiing.
