---Update to change flights from Warsaw to Krakow to reduce transfer time- thanks to owe for pointing this out!---
Zakopane is both full of and surrounded by beautiful trails with stunning views over the High Tatras. Although you should not expect hundreds of kilometers of downhill runs, there is enough variety to entertain you very well for a week. On your way to Zakopane you pass the ski area of Bialka Tatrzanska that was opened in 2001. The wide-stretched slopes are popular with the locals, because the ski slopes are lit until 22:00 at night. At the end of the working week a lot of Polish wintersport enthusiasts come to ski or snowboard here. The ski lifts are modern however, and slopes are nices and wide so there is plenty of space here. Bialke has a lot of blue slopes, ideal for beginning skiers.
