SKI ZAKOPANE - frequently asked questions

  • What do I need to wear for skiing / snowboarding?
  • Even if you are planning only one day on the slopes I recommend to buy thermal shirt and pants, ski socks (long and thin but warm) and ski gloves. Ski jacket and ski trousers can be rent for approx. 100 PLN per day. If you are going to ski for longer than a day you can consider buying your own ski clothes - if you are looking for the cheapest option you may visit a second hand shops in your country, or here, in Zakopane.
  • Are the ski / snowboard lessons conducted in English? Yes, they are. Some instructors speak better English, some worse but basically all the lessons are conducted in English.
  • Do all the lessons are run by the same instructor? Two days ski course is organized on the Nosal ski slope and I always try to book the same instructor for both days. The third day of the three days course takes place in Bialka Tatrzanska and I book an instructor from the local ski school in Bialka.
  • We are all snowboarders. Do you have an offer for us? Yes, of course. Just inform us that you need to rent boards and that we've to book snowboarding instructors for you.
  • Our group is mixed - two skiers and three snowboarders. What can we do? I will book two instructors for you - one for skiers and one for snowboarders.
  • We haven't booked accommodation in Zakopane yet. Can we book one of your ski course? Yes, you can. You'll let us know your address in Zakopane later. We can also help you to find nice place to stay if you wish.
  • Does your taxi pick us up directly from our hotel and bring us back to the hotel in the afternoon? Yes, exactly.
  • What time should we go back from the ski slopes? You decide what time you want our driver to take you back to the hotel after the ski day. You just have to send me a text message with the suggested picking up time at least one hour in advance.
  • Does the price include insurance? No, insurance isn't included. I suggest to take your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or a replacement certificate for your ski holidays in Poland.
  • Only two of our five need ski lesson. Is there any chance to reduce the course price? Yes. Just let me know about it while booking the course.
  • What is the minimum age of kids who wants to join the course? In my opinion a minimum age for kids to start skiing is 4. Notice please that if you have any kids under 7 in your group you will probably have to book an extra instructors for them.
  • Should we take our shoes to the slopes? If you are going to spend all day on the slope I suggest to take shoes because you need to have one longer break to let your muscles (and feet) rest.
