Szczyrk is one of the most recognizable mountain sports centers in Poland. During the cold and snowy months, the Beskid resort turns into the capital of winter sports – fans of active recreation and fairy-tale views will have a wonderful time here. The list of Szczyrk attractions is really long. Here are 5 suggestions on what to do in Szczyrk in winter.

1.    Hiking along the winter trails of the Beskid Mountains.

One of the biggest attractions of Szczyrk in winter, as much as all year round, is the beautiful trails of the Silesian Beskid. Excellent time to traverse them will be spent by mountain hiking enthusiasts. The surroundings of Przystanek Góry offer ideal conditions for hiking. In the schedule of a winter stay, avid hikers should include an ascent of Skrzyczne and Klimczok – the two highest peaks of the Silesian Beskid. The trails leading to Malinowska Skała and Karkoszczonka Pass are also exceptionally scenic.

2.    White madness on the slopes

Szczyrk is sometimes called the winter skiing capital of the Beskids. Not without reason – fans of madness on the white powder will spend an unforgettable time in the ski resorts waiting in the area. Especially noteworthy is one of the country’s largest ski complexes: the Szczyrk Mountain Resort. With 13 lifts and 25 km of trails of varying difficulty, there is something for everyone. Snowboarding enthusiasts will enjoy the Juliana Snow Park with handrails, jumps, and other obstacles. Fans of skiing or boarding will also have an unforgettable time on the slopes of the Central Sports Center and the Beskid Sport Arena, offering 4 ski slopes with a total length of 3.2 km.

3.    Snow-covered promenade over the Żylica River

The promenade over the Żylica River is one of Szczyrk’s landmarks. Loved by locals and tourists alike, it is also delightful in its winter version. The area is perfect not only for leisurely walks but also for various activities. Those wishing to do so can march on its grounds with poles or try their hand at cross-country skiing. The path begins at the City Hall, from where it continues along the Żylica River to the square in the center. It continues past the Central Sports Center all the way to Buczkowice.

4.    Cable car to Skrzyczne and fabulous landscapes

Another of Szczyrk’s attractions is the cable car leading to Skrzyczne – the highest peak in the Silesian Beskid, measuring 1257 meters above sea level. A modern chairlift, available year-round, leads to the top, with an intermediate station at Hala Jaworzyna. The trip’s culmination is the magnificent winter landscapes stretching from the summit.

5.    Winter trip along the Route of Wooden Architecture

Szczyrk is not only a typical mountain attraction for fans of active recreation and breathtaking views but is also worth seeing monuments. For fans of interesting architecture, we recommend visiting the sanctuary of St. James the Apostle, a wooden building erected around 1800 and belonging to the Trail of Wooden Architecture of the Silesian Province. The building looks exceptionally picturesque in wintertime.
