We went skiing in Zakopane, Poland in January/February 2010 and we loved it! Zakopane has everything you need and the ski resorts are great for all levels from beginners to advanced.
What made our trip really special was the accommodation and hospitality we had at hotel Gong! The hotel was clean, the rooms were nice, the bathrooms were new and very clean. The breakfast and dinner were delicious and the owners were extremely welcome, comforting, supportive and friendly.
We will definitely go back to Zakopane next year and stay at Gong again!
The best place for skiing in Zakopane in my opinion is Bialka!
