Feel like some mountain adventure? Let’s set off on a journey!
The ski touring, in other words the off-piste skiing with some elements of hiking and downhill skiing in the backcountry on unmarked areas, enjoys a huge popularity nowadays. Now, you can try this skiing form here, at the resort, as well! Join our ski touring course conducted by an experienced skiing and ski touring instructor. You’ll learn how to use the equipment and how to move around the mountain areas, staying safe and sound at the same time. The friendly ambience will help you get on track and have fun. Breathtaking views of the Beskid peaks, other than those you could see when skiing down the well-known slopes, are an undoubted asset of the course, as you may well assume. You will discover the face of the mountains that you have never dared even to imagine before.
When do the group trainings take place?
- For beginners: TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS AND SATURDAYS
- For intermediate and advanced level skiers: WEDNESDAYS
Remember that the dates and the equipment need to be booked in advance. Thus, please call us or e-mail us to rest assured that your training is safe and confirmed. We also run individual courses for 1 or 2 people, combined with a complex equipment and technique training.
Who’s the target group of the trainings?
The classes are intended for alpine skiers. Each participant needs to have at least the basic knowledge and blue piste skills. The trainings are not about ski learning, though. After each lesson, the participants ski back downhill (most frequently, it’s the blue piste no. 3). You may not come back using the chairlift from the Robber’s Mountain (Zbójnicka Kopa) or Skrzyczne. Climbing to the top takes 1, 5 hours, 2, 5 hours tops, depending on how fit you are. And if you feel like having a nice stroll, then, step by step, without any hurry, you can reach the summit within 4 hours (you’ll even have the time to stop on the way and rest for a bit). If, all of a sudden, the weather conditions become quite nasty or the participants turn out to be less fit than they had previously claimed to be, perhaps we won’t make it to the top. In such case, the instructor may cease the trip and take the group back down. The pace of the trip depends on the slowest participant.

What do you need and how should you dress?
The ski tourers need to be dressed in layers so that they can easily adapt their clothing to the current weather conditions. Preferably, each layer should be a breathable humidity-proof fabric. We would advise you to wear thin gloves and a thin cap as well. On the hike, they will come pretty much in handy. Remember that the long and thick ski socks will protect your feet from corns and abrasions.
Pack these things, please:
- 20-30 l rucksack – large enough to fit a jacket you’ll wear when skiing down. On the hike, it’s best to dress in some light, windproof clothing (fleece sweater, pullover or a thin windstopper jacket etc.)
- vacuum flask with warm tea
- little snacks (energetic bars, banana, chocolate etc.)
- caps (one made of a thin fabric for the hike, it may be a balaclava as well, and one thicker cap)
- buff or scarf
- an extra pair of gloves (may be thicker, you’ll use them when skiing down the slope)
- sunglasses (or alternatively goggles, you’ll use them when skiing down the slope)
- debit card or cash (at the mountain hostel run by the Polish Tourist and Sightseeing Society (PTTK) on the Skrzyczne peak, you can buy something to eat or drink
- mobile phone – if the weather is good, you’ll take a whole myriad of photos
