Hi was there over new years 2 years was great a bumper snow year though...i was at the top and -35 however on one day so wrap was usually about -11....

last year the snow conditions were appalling all over poland ...fake snow everywhere

Krynica for me is the nicest place to has a great place called The Pub on the high street where you can get good food and plenty of beer...its the most party pub i've been to any polish ski resort

there's a few other tghings to keep you occupied ice skating and of course go to the natural water springs....supposed to have super health benefits if you can cope with the s,ell and taste of the water..

there's also plenty of other places Muszyna is not to far away and also good.

remember though this is not france/austria/ or anywhere like that...its cheap and its cheap...if you are expecting difficult red/black runs you won't find them in Poland oe the apres ski...but for a short cheap break krynica would be my no1 cjoice of polish ski resorts...

enjoy kielbas and drinking mulled win and warm honey beer on the slopes :)

Hello there!

I remember skiing in Krynica too, my favourite slope was Jaworzyna :)

Whyikit: good choice if you plan skiing in PL!
Dazza: mulled wine and warm honey beer - that's what I really enjoyed!
The mail "pump room"(?) (I mean Pijalnia) of water in the city centre - I visited it only once - could not force myself to drink water there! It's apparently healthy spring water buttttt.... I just prefered a bottle of "Kryniczanka" from the shop ;)

Cheers pals!
