Szklarska Poreba is one of the largest ski resorts in the Polish Karkonosze. Winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy 20 ski lifts, including six located on the slopes of Szrenica, towering over the city.
These are mainly T-bar lifts, and one chairlift divided into two sections. Built in 1962, it has been repeatedly modernized and is able to bring to the summit of Szrenica more than 1,400 people per hour.
The new chairlift "Karkonosze Express" was opened in 2010. This "six-couch" is the longest and most modern statement of this kind in Poland. Its length is 2,393 m. Skiers reach the top in just eight and a half minutes.
Below the lift station was right next to an existing section I to Szrenica. The upper station is located close to Christmas Stone, slopes above the bifurcation Lolobrygida and Śnieżynka. Almost 2,000 people go to the top within an hour. More about the new lift ...

Good skiers, are provided with the most best emotions due to the FIS trail, whose slope angle is in some places even 50%. The longest trail - Lolobrygida downhill has a length of more than 4400 m. The well-known, popular and rather easy "Pooh" trail offers night skiing until 22:00.
Above it are a lot of shorter routes, located on the slopes of minor hills located in Szklarska Poreba and the route towards Jakuszyce (Babiniec, Wiciarka). Almost 20 km of pistes wait for skiers to come to Szklarska Poreba.
