Skiing in Zieleniec

Are you looking for the one of the best and the largest ski resorts in Poland? Zieleniec Ski Arena is one of them. The resort itself is regularly awarded in various plebiscites and contests and is visited not only by fans of skiing from all over Poland, but also by visitors from the neighbouring countries such as Germany or Czech Republic.

Zieleniec Ski Arena is the capital of alpine skiing in the Kłodzko region. This is mainly due to 22 kilometres of beautifully situated and picturesque ski slopes, varying in length and, in particular, in the level of proficiency. The more demanding skiers and snowboarders will love it – the longest trail in Zieleniec is 2800 meters long.

One of the most important advantages and the distinguishing factor of Zieleniec, in comparison with other ski resorts in Poland, is the specific microclimate similar to the Alpine climate. Another asset of the resort, connected with its exceptional location and climate, are the snow conditions. A large amount of snowfall (1300 mm during the year, of which 40% falls from November to March) causes that the snow remain here for about 150 days a year. Therefore, if winter comes at the turn of November and December, it is usually possible to ski in Zieleniec even during Easter holidays.
