Sports Arena Myślenice

The ski station located on Leśna Street in Myślenice is one of the places closest to Krakow.

Wyciąg Narciarski w Skomielnej Czarnej

The ski lift in Skomielna Czarna is about 60 kilometres (36 miles) from the centre of Krakow, so about 60-70 minutes by car. Of course, if there are traffic jams on the notorious road known as Zakopianka, this time may be extended. The ski centre has one 700-metre-long piste and a 100-metre-long meadow. There is a platter lift on site. The disadvantage is the short opening hours. It is usually only open until 7 p.m., so check the exact opening hours before you go.
