I've been skiing in Zakopane, Poland with my family for the last 2 winters in a row. The town is really beautiful and it's so nice to be able to afford to go to nice restaurants IN a ski resort with a meal for the whole family costing under £40 every time. I'd recommend Zakopane to anyone looking to try skiing and snowboarding for the first time or looking to improve with some excellent and affordable instructional packages.
Review by Jenna from Berlin on Saturday Jan 30th. Visited Zakopane in january 2010 as family
Zakopane is a great way to spend a budget holiday in the snow. The prices aren't yet as high as in France, Switzerland or even Austria. The pistes are more for beginners then for experts, so don't expect pistes like in the alps, but still good enough to have lots of fun. Zakopane is great for familys large or small, eating out and shopping drinking is so reasonable, everything is a stones throw away,hire of gear and instruction, lifts taxis likewise.
Review by Maikov from Tallinn on Saturday Jan 9th. Visited Zakopane in january 2010 as family
Zakopane has loads of character and is THE place to be seen in Poland in the winter. Hence there are some very nice (and expensive) hotels in the centre of town, but Pensjonats just outside town are mostly good, clean and cheap. There are some lovely bars in town where they often have folk bands playing and vats of hot wine and beer on the counter. The local soups and stews are just what is needed after a day skiing. The slopes are varied. Some good beginners slopes, but not sure if you can get good teaching. The main problem is that all the pistes are spread out and privately owned and as far as I could tell you have to buy a lift pass for each one. So just buy a half day pass and move on.
