Zakopane is Poland's biggest and best ski resort. It is located south of Zakopane town, close to the Slovak border and on the edge of the Tatra Mountains National Park, in southern Poland, S of Krakow. The skiing at Zakopane is fragmented and the lift infrastructure archaic, although, reportedly, undergoing some modernization. The nearest ski slopes are 3km (2 miles) away at Kasprowy Wierch where there is high alpine skiing in two treeless bowls. Other nearby areas are Rabka, Gubalowka and Nosal.

Visitor Reviews of Zakopane

Henry Wakeman from United Kingdom writes:

We just had a family ski holiday to Zakopane and went with Sunshine World. I must admit, we were sceptical about the conditions and runs, but were so pleasantly surprised. The runs were managed so well and because it isn’t a very well-known area, by us Brits, there were no queues at the lifts. We loved the long blue at the back and the stops for warm beer were nice too. It’s great to see that they are making the place even better with two new lifts (not opened when we were there). There was plenty of snow and the runs were clean and wide, giving us newbies a better chance of not hitting anyone, haha. Sunshine World really made it for us, they organised everything for us, were completely professional and made it fun for us and our little ones. We loved being on the slopes and will definitely book with these guys for next year’s holiday.
