Kasprowy Wierch
skiing on  Kasprowy Wierch

KASPROWY WIERCH the best place for advanced skiers and snowboarders in Poland:

NEWS (March 2014): it is not necessary to book the tickets in advance - if the weather is nice I suggest to go to the cable car station in Kuznice (by local bus or taxi) in the morning (between 8.30 and 9.30) to avoid queuing and buy your tickets directly before the cable car ride.
Because of the lack of snow only one ski piste is open (Gasienicowa) and skiers return to Kuznice by cable car.

CHAIR LIFTS ON GASIENICOWA and GORYCZKOWA are open from 8.00am to 4.00pm
from the end of December till the beginning of May if only there is enough snow on the slopes.
There is only natural snow on Kasprowy Wierch (no man made snow) so the slopes and lifts are quite often closed.
