Almost all ski resorts are located at our southern border, in the heart of mountain ranges of Tatra, Beskids, Sudety and Bieszczady. Our highest ski station of Kasprowy Wierch towers all other at 1987 m. above sea level. Although You can’t expect alpine like skiing in our country. But what the resorts lack in size the make up in style and quality. Weather small ski slopes or big skiing conglomerates You can find new infrastructure of ski lifts, snowcats and snow making equipment. There is a variety of additional infrastructure of professional ski&snowboard schools, excellent restaurants and after ski attractions at any given location.

Prices are the most attractive ones in central Europe. Allowing novice to develop their skills before stepping up to the higher peaks.

The resorts around the Tatra Mountains (south of Poland) in Zakopane, Białka Tatrzańska and Bukowina Tatrzańska offer ones of the biggest slopes that we have in our country. The highest skiing station of Kasprowy Wierch can satisfy the most demanding skiers. After a full active day You can enjoy traditional highlander cuisine, music and culture. This region of Podhale provides many thermal springs where You can choose to relax in hot water swimming pools or receive spa treatment.

Another region around the city Krynica Zdrój, more to the south-east (Beskid mountains), doesn’t have as high mountains, but its slopes are diverse, providing fun for novice and advanced skiers. The city is also famous for being the biggest spa town in Poland. With excellent mineral waters, which poses ,almost magic like, healing powers.

On the other side of the scale You can find small skiing and snowboarding stomping grounds. While not attracting as many people they provide almost the same standard with the focus brought to comfort and atmosphere. Very offen they can be proud of very good snow-parks (like Korbielów) or just have uncrowded laid back climate like Wisła-Nowa Osada in the Beskidy Mountains. If You are just seeking refuge and distance from the noise of civilization You can find remote and silent locations like  Karolinka Guest House in Szczyrk.
