Szczyrk has been attracting lovers of active recreation for years. The Beskid resort, known as the winter capital of Poland, turns into a true sports eldorado with the arrival of cold and snowy days. Avid skiers and snowboarders, fans of cross-country skiing, and lovers of hiking mountain trails will have a great time here. We suggest what winter activities await visitors to the Silesian Beskid!
An active winter stay? Come to Szczyrk!
Szczyrk is a lovely place on the map of Poland in terms of opportunities for active leisure. The mountain resort, located at the foot of Skrzyczne and in the valley of the Żylica River, despite its small size, offers a vast number of attractions for visitors of all levels, regardless of fitness and age. We especially encourage you to test the winter activities waiting in the region.
White madness in modern ski resorts
Szczyrk is eagerly visited each year by fans of skiing. Those in the mountain village will find several ski resorts, which offer modern roller coasters, kilometers of slopes, schools, and kindergartens for those taking their first steps on skis or a board, as well as catering facilities to replenish energy between runs. Near the Przystanek Góry awaits the COS (Central Sports Center), with a cable car running from Szczyrk, through Jaworzyna, to the top of Skrzyczne. The station offers four trails with a total length of nearly 12 km. One of the country’s largest ski complexes, the Szczyrk Mountain Resort, also invites you to ski. It offers as many as 13 lifts and 23 km of trails of varying difficulty – so everyone will find something for themselves. Snowboarding fans, in turn, will be pleased with Snow Park Juliana with handrails, jumps, and other obstacles. We also recommend testing the offer of the Beskid Sport Arena, which has 4 ski slopes with a total length of 3.2 km, equipped with modern led lighting.
Hiking on the snowy trails of the Silesian Beskids
The Beskids are a straightforward dream destination for fans of hiking. All year round, a variety of hiking trails await them in the region, which in winter delight with breathtaking views of snow-covered peaks and valleys. The immediate surroundings of the Przystanek Góry offer excellent conditions for hiking. In particular, we recommend climbing the highest peaks of the entire Silesian Beskid: Skrzyczne (1257 meters above sea level) and Klimczok (1117 meters above sea level). Hikers will also have an unforgettable experience with trips to Karkoszczonka Pass and Malinowska Skała.
Cross-country skiing in wintry Szczyrk
Cross-country skiing is a winter sport that is growing in popularity each season. In Szczyrk, there is no shortage of scenic trails that attract avid cross-country skiers in the winter, as well as people who want to start their adventure with cross-country skiing. In particular, we recommend the cross-country trails of the Kubalonka Pass (with a length of 2.5, 3, 5, and 7.5 km). In addition, a special cross-country ski trail is also waiting for interested people located on Sosnowa Street in Upper Szczyrk (near the Ice Cave).
Przystanek Góry – an ideal base for active people
