Wintersports

If you came to Zakopane to ride, ski, and hike, you’re in the right place.  It’s almost impossible to be bored in Poland’s winter capital, with all different types of skiing and snowboarding opportunities available.

For those who want to hit the slopes, ski-lifts are available from the early morning to the late evening hours with instructors available on hand to help even the earliest beginners in the sport (ski and snowboard equipment rentals are available in Zakopane’s downtown area).  The ski slopes are generally open from December until mid-April, although it’s not uncommon to see skiers hit the slopes during Poland’s long May Day weekend.

If you prefer to get away from the crowded ski runs, check out ski-touring.  The sport is gaining ground in Europe, with a ski-touring trip, which can last several days and led by a professional guide, is a great way of exercising and seeing Zakopane’s sites at the same time.  One of the more popular ski-touring routes in Zakopane runs from the Tatra National Park with overnight accommodations booked in mountain chalets.
