The best place to ski & snowboard areas for families with children. Available 4 months a year great prepared ski slopes that are illuminated in the evening, make that everyone will find something for everyone. Ski school for adults and children, and specially prepared slopes to learn skiing and snowboarding. After a day on the slopes you can relax in... More

That was the reason I've been to Zakopane. I was searching for a place to ski around Central Europe and between the options this resort was one of the cheapest. Not only about price, the place is good if you are a beginner like me. There are many options for renting ski sets and also bars and restaurante around and... More

We were astonished by rude/unprofessional cashiers... when we originally purchased our ski passes we explained that we might not be able to ski the 4th day due to travel arrangements and asked for the best option we were told to buy ski passes for 4 days and if we didn't use the ski passes on a 4th day we could...

I spent the day here while staying at Zakopane with my wife and 3 boys. I had skied before but they hadn't. It isn't as high as alpine resorts and the runs aren't as long, but barring that, it has everything an alpine resort has to offer at a fraction of the cost. The ski station itself is like a... More

This was my first time skiing outside of the US (Utah and Colorado). While the slopes aren't particularly long (4000 feet), they are good for beginners and intermediates. The trails aren't really market as they are elsewhere (green/blue/black) so I once ended up on a mountain way too steep for me but I really enjoyed it. 4 hours of skiing... More

Kotelnica has everything within walking distance. It's made up of three hills. We stayed in Hubert, located near hotel bania, which has a thermal spa. The food here is amazing. Many restaurants with passionate chefs. The slopes are great for beginners to intermediate. There's a ski school called skol. It has one red slope and one cross country track. These... More

There're buses going to Bialka Tatrzanska from Zakopane bus station every hour or so and takes about 40 mins. Once there the lower part by the entrance is very busy with people queueing big time, but I found didn't have to wait longer than 5 mins. Higher up in the slopes there's greater choice of pistes and much less people... More

as for the skiing value it is a bit better than the polish average, but still not very good - it is short and tons of people ski there every high season. but the infrastructure is nice and you can eat a nice cheap meal in one of the restaurants nearby.
