Default Polish Resorts?

Anyone who'd know who has any tips regarding Polish resorts? Been eyeing Zakopane and some other places. Looking for cheap alternatives for a 3-4 day trip or so.

Enjoy!

Sweet! They look like the could entertain me for at least a few days. How are the communications? Easy to get to?

Zakopane is amazingly cheap (at least compared to what I'm used to). English was fine. They have a nice little village. Polish know how to party and they are extremely friendly.

One thing to keep in mind, Polish resorts protect their nature. They don't cut, create or clear their resorts for riding. Though, they do maintain them. I've never been on the Slovakian side of the Tatras for boarding, but I've heard that they do have better resorts because they don't protect the wilderness like the Polish do.

With that said, Zakopane was still fine. I think I paid 15 euros a day for my lift pass. I can't remember for the life of me where I was boarding. I don't know if you are going alone or with friends, but buy a few bottles of vodka and do a sleigh ride at night. Give one of the extra bottles to the driver so he doesn't fish-lip yours. There are things you can't unsee.

Well, Slovakia is not Japan, but not so far away!

how to get there:
Chopok and Vysoke Tatry
Vratna

Chopok is freeride friendly: manual
If you go slackcountry, remember to check avalanche warnings.

and in Poland:
Zakopane - Kasprowy Wierch
but riding off-piste is forbidden unfortunately
