With snow machines in place to cover up any ground, and well-lit slopes, it’s even possible to ski after dark.

The center of activity
Szklarska Poręba is a dream for outdoor enthusiasts: With its untouched landscapes and perfectly maintained slopes and trails, you’re in for a treat. Next to downhill skiing, cross-country skiing is another major draw to the Polish resort region. Covering over 100 kilometers and with equipment rentals on site, it’s the perfect opportunity to explore all that this great terrain has to offer. All cross-country skiing routes form loops in the shape of a clover lead, so that you can easily combine several routes in one.
As one of the last few Polish cities where you can experience dog-sledding, you now have a further great reason to visit Szklarska Poręba. Notably, it’s also the fantastic quality of its routes and roads in the Jizera Mountains that makes this region so suited to dog sledding, with snowy weather lasting until the early spring. Over the years, several competitions and championships have even taken place here. Visit from December through to March and you’ll be able to traverse the snowy landscape in a little wooden sled yourself.
