Even the names of the best-known Sudeten peaks promise white madness: Snieznik and Sniezka (the names come from the word ‘snieg’ which means ‘snow’). But it’s not only there that skiers will find many well-prepared trails. You can also ski in Szklarska Poreba (Szrenica) or in Zieleniec in the Orlica Mountains. For those who prefer cross-country skiing, Lower Silesia also has a lot to offer – the Piast Race, which the largest Polish cross-country race taking place every year on Jakuszyce Glade, included.

There are more and more, both downhill and cross-country, ski runs in Lower Silesia every year. Those already existing are, in turn, being prepared more and more professionally for the season to meet the expectations of skiers who often have experience from foreign resorts.

One of the most popular destinations for the amateurs of white madness is certainly the Black Mountain – providing a total of over 10 km of slopes with several dozen lifts (three of them are the so-called sofas, including the most modern 6-seater chairlift in Poland). Nearby there are two more ski stations – in Ladek-Zdroj and Kamienica – and all three of them form one complex located in the Snieznik Massif region. The second important centre is the aforementioned complex of ski slopes in Zieleniec in the Orlice Mountains, where skiers will use 21 km of slopes and over 20 lifts. In addition, skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts should also not be bored in Karpacz, Kopa by Sniezka, Swieradow-Zdroj, Rzeczka or Nowa Morawa.


Cross-country skiers certainly do not need to be reminded of Jakuszyce Glade – the capital of Polish cross-country skiing for tourists from all over Poland. Apart from the slopes in the vicinity of Szklarska Poreba it is worth going to Klodzko Structural Basin. Jamrozowa Glade in Duszniki Zdroj offers over 70 km of routes of varying difficulty and in the nearby complex in Zieleniec or in Spalona there will be space prepared for the needs of all cross-country skiing enthusiasts. And where else can you do the cross-country skiing in Lower Silesia? On the routes around Wroclaw, in Karlow near Szczeliniec in the Table Mountains, in Sienna, Janowa Gora and Nowa Morawa in the Snieznik Massif and in many other places.
