While the queues for the lift at the bottom of Szrenica (Szklarska Porębaa) can be annoying, intermediate or good skiers can avoid them by staying at the top half of the mountain. That way, I never had to wait for more than a few minutes at a time. One can spend a nice day on the black slope (FIS) or the top half of the red slope (Lollobrigida). Sure, there's no restaurant as such but in the kiosk at the middle station, one can get nice warm food and drink and there's outside seating. And for the frozen and hungry, there's Hala Szrenicka, just about 150 m above the top station of the lift.

This is a tiny resort by western European standards, but by Polish standards its one of the best resorts they have. This is where I learned to ski and I have been back many times because I lived close by. It is a small resort with only 4 runs, 1 black, 2 reds, and one blue. The black and red runs are fairly interesting and good fun, with one of the reds being 4 kilometers long. A slow 2 person chair lift takes you half way up the mountain, but this only gives you access to the blue run. An even slower two person chair and a quicker t-bar takes you to the top where you have access to the other runs. At weekends expect to queue at least 30 mins at the bottom and the pistes to be very crowded, so if you do go, try to make it during the week. The big plus for skiers from western Europe is the prices. A couple of days sking, accommodation and flights (if booked in advance) won't cost you much more than a big weekend at home. There is plenty of accommodation and restaurants and ski hire in Szklarska, which is quite a nice little place. In short, if you're on a budget and want to ski it's not a bad choice, but if you're not, go to the Alps.
