Description:

Hello, are you looking for a ski / snowboard course in Zakopane, only 100km...

Hello, are you looking for a ski / snowboard course in Zakopane, only 100km far from Krakow (and the Balice airport)? I hope you will be able to choose one which suits you best: QUICK START - half day ski / snowboard course is dedicated for those who just want to try skiing or snowboarding. This is the best option for travellers planning one day ski trip from Krakow. MINI SKI or SNOWBOARD COURSE is recommended for those who would like to take part in all the other activities available in Zakopane. After four hours on the ski slope you will have plenty of time for snowmobile trips, sleigh ride, Kasprowy Wierch cable car ride, walking, shopping etc. Note please that the ski lessons can be provided also in the afternoon so if you plan some other activities in the morning just let me know. SKI / SNOWBOARD COURSE with all days ski passes included is recommend for those, who are going to span all days on the slopes. If skiing (snowboarding) is the main goal of your trip to Zakopane you should choose this course. See you in Zakopane! Barbara

Reading all glorious reviews here I do not know if we contact the same school or not? I have contacted school by email, after 5 days I called and speak to Barbara where she promised to make an arrangement and send me all details via email. 7 days later I write an email again and never ever heard from them...

Dear Sandra, I'd like to inform you that I do not run any ski school with any staff answering e-mails but I am just an independent ski instructor who spends days on the slopes teaching skiing and afternoons and early mornings at the computer. To be honest I'm not sure if it's fair to add this review for in fact... More

Before I launch into detail, let me summarise by recommending this company wholeheartedly to you. This was my first skiing experience, my husband's first experience after 35 years, and our 17 year old daughter's second in 3 years, so we were all at different standards, but Pani Basia set up lessons according to our different skiing standards and catering for...

Barbara and her dad organised our first ski trip to zakopane over a 3 day vacation. Very well organised and prompt travel arrangements to make it as relaxed as possible for us. Nothing missed, a seamless trip. Good mixture of slopes and challenges. Will return next year for another top customer experience

I took one lesson at Krokiew, it was targeted so I knew basic things and no need to take more lessons (at lease at the beginners stage :) ) Polite professional Instructors, everybody speaks english.

Zakopane is an exciting ski-resort. Unlike France or Switzerland, ski runs are not concentrated at one single departure point but are scattered around the area. Our knowledge of the Polish language can be considered as close to zero. And finally, the 8 of us flew over from Belgium, leaving us without car on the spot. Barbara, much more than a... More

Dear Miguel, thank you very much for your nice review. I'm really glad that you have enjoyed your stay in Zakopane (or rather Kościelisko) despite of this crazy weather - rain, hurricane, snow storm... I promise that next time I will book better weather for you :) With kind regards for all your nice team Barbara More

A first rate teacher. Ideal for any first-timers who need someone with patience, experience, adaptability and a sense of humour! Barbara instantly assessed my lack of ability/ confidence and (with a smile) gave me a wonderful introduction to the world of ski-ing.

We organised a course with Barbara and she was very professional. We had a ski course which was very well organised, they teached us the basics and were very patient with us, as we took while to get the hangs of things after a few falls. After the basics we were good to go on our own and we picked... More

Thanks a million Barbara, we had an absolutely great day today. Couldn't have asked for a friendlier person to show us how to ski. I would highly recommend your school to any of my friends. Thanks so much for your instructions and patience :-D
