You came to the Silesian Beskids in winter, but what you really want is skiing? Nothing lost! In the town of Szczyrk you will find a local ski center with 50 kilometers of pistes. The resort, which used to be for miners relaxing on the slopes as part of company excursions, has been thoroughly modernized in recent years and will satisfy the needs of both ski experts and novice amateurs of skiing or snowboarding.
The Szczyrk Mountain Resort, combined with the Central Ski Center, today forms the largest winter complex in Poland.
The ski lifts densely cover the slopes of the Skrzyczne and Małe Skrzyczne mountains, allowing you to change your surroundings frequently and ski down pistes tailored to your current skills. One pass allows you to use the routes of both resorts.
The adornment of Szczyrk are the 3-kilometer-long “FIS” and ” Kaskada” slopes descending down the slopes of Skrzyczne. The former (as the name suggests) is FIS-approved for alpine skiing.
In the town at the bottom stations of the lifts there are many places where you can rent equipment inexpensively.
