The ski season in the mountains is still going on; ski passes are cheaper
Despite the end of the winter holidays, the ski season in the mountains is still going on. You can ski not only on Kasprowy Wierch; all resorts in Podhale are still open, and the prices of ski passes are lower.
The owners of ski stations announce that the lifts will be open at least until the end of March, and on Kasprowy Wierch even until the beginning of May. On the Polish “holy mountain of skiers”, the temperatures are still negative, and there is over 160 cm of snow on the top. However, the work of the cable cars can be stopped by strong winds.
“March and April are the best months for skiing on Kasprowy Wierch. Snowfall in the Tatras is plentiful then, and the sun is already high, which allows for a unique skiing adventure on the routes in the Gąsienicowa and Goryczkowa Valleys, said Marta Grzywa, a spokeswoman for the operator of cable cars on Kasprowy Wierch – Polskie Koleje Linowe (PKL).
It is worth buying a skipass to Kasprowy Wierch in advance on-line and take advantage of lower prices. In this way, we will also avoid queuing for the cable car to the top. Prices of ski passes to Kasprowy Wierch start from PLN 115 for a 4-hour ride or PLN 129 for an all-day reduced ski pass.
When planning a trip to Kasprowy Wierch, it is also worth getting acquainted with the changes in traffic organization, which are related to the ongoing renovation of the access road to Kuźnice. From Monday to Saturday from 8.30 – 15.30 the section of the road leading to the lower station of the cable car is closed for transport, so you have to cover it on foot.
You can still ski on Gubałówka, Harenda and Polana Szymoszkowa in Zakopane. Centers in Jurgów, Czarna Góra, Białka and Bukowina Tatrzańska and Kluszkowce are open. Off-season prices are also valid in the ski resorts of Palenica in Szczawnica, Mosorny Groń in Zawoja and Jaworzyna Krynicka. The lift at Palenica will be open until March 27, when technical inspections will begin. (PAP)
