No unnecessary preliminaries

There is no need to praise anyone for the charms of Karpacz. In this post, I will not describe the most popular attractions concentrated in and around Karpacz itself. I will leave admiration for Karpacz and nature descriptions for other entries. Here I would like to post a set of specific information about the possibilities of spending time in Karpacz in winter, related to the available ski slopes, cross-country trails, downhill slopes, along with relevant maps, locations, descriptions of lifts and slopes, the scale of difficulty, accessibility for adults, children, etc.

Map of ski lifts and ski resorts in Karpacz

At the beginning, the main, large map showing the distribution and location of ski lifts in Karpacz and in its vicinity. On the basis of this map, it will be easy for you to plan where your accommodation should be located in order to avoid unnecessary journeys and travel to the best ski lift for you.
I have marked the location of the lifts or groups of lifts on the map, and below the map I have posted descriptions containing the characteristics of a given lift. Each statement or group has a number assigned on the map, corresponding to the number next to the description. In addition, the area of ​​Ski Arena, which includes several lifts, is marked with an ellipse.
Later in the post you will find wider and more detailed descriptions of the marked slopes and lifts, along with separate, more detailed maps.
I hope that such a set of information will be a useful tool for you when planning successful winter trips to the vicinity of Karpacz.

Descriptions of ski lifts and downhill slopes in Karpacz

Below you will find more detailed data on each of the ski lifts and slopes marked on the map. Each is accompanied by a situational map showing the location of the lift and the location of the nearest parking lots. In the descriptions I also included links to hotels and accommodation offers located near the ski lift. If you like the selected slope and lift, it is worth starting your search with accommodation located in its immediate vicinity. Thus, you will avoid the somewhat onerous commuting and problems with parking near the ski lift. Also, most of the slopes have artificial lighting, so living near the slopes gives you the freedom to go out to the slopes, even several times a day, whenever you feel like going for a ride.

Weather Karpacz

Below is the current weather information for the next week. The weather data is updated in real time, so the information here is always up to date.
Information on long-term weather in Karpacz can be found in a separate entry: Karpacz - long-term weather.

Hotels and accommodation in Karpacz

The links I put in the post direct to large, well-known and proven booking databases (Airbnb and booking.com). These are the databases I know and have been using myself for years. They check the reliability of the offers posted and verify their credibility. People and companies that offer poor-quality accommodation or with unreliable descriptions are removed from them. In the event of problems with the provision of the service, these websites often intervene on our behalf, forcing the owner of the facility to provide services in accordance with the offers posted on the website.
I do not post links to other accommodation bases that I do not know. My assumption is that you should avoid trouble, especially on vacation, where we want to relax rather than waste time seeking consumer rights.
Use the links here and find attractive offers with them!

Karpacz Ski Arena (1)

Ski Arena is the largest complex of lifts and ski slopes in Karpacz. There are a total of six lifts of different lengths and several interconnecting ski runs.

Cross-country skiing routes in Karpacz

Unfortunately, the selection of cross-country trails in Karpacz is not as large as the selection of downhill slopes. The offer is limited to two routes.

Tourist ski trail

In good winter weather conditions (snow, of course), there are tracks for runners along the route. They form a 2,5 km long loop.
The trail starts at the Stokrotka resort, ul. Karkonoska 55.
There is a running equipment rental on site (open between 9.00 a.m. and 17.00 p.m., contact phone: +48 512 444 034).

The beginning of the running trail, GPS coordinates:
50°47’09.0″N 15°43’16.5″E
50.785829, 15.721253 - click and route

The plain under the snowball

The route is mapped out by the Karkonosze National Park. The starting point of the route is at the upper station of the cable car to Kopa. The route runs partly on the Polish and partly on the Czech side of the Karkonosze Mountains. The route is marked with orange direction signs. They indicate the color of the trail and the length of the section.
The route runs between the following points: Dom Śląski, Spalona Strażnica, Pod Małym Szyszakiem and Lucni Bouda, between which it forms one large loop (or two smaller ones).
The route map is available for download here - [click]
