Spent two nights in Zakopane about a month ago with my dad and thoroughly enjoyed the experience overall. Unfortunately the Tatra Mountains are having a poor snow season and this prevented many of the runs at Kasprowy Wierch from being open. This was definitely the best of the 4 Zakopane mountains. Steep slopes and bowl skiing but as I mentioned before, the snow cover was poor. There is a great off-piste run into the bowl that requires a walk of a few hundred meters to get to. In the afternoon it got particularly icy and there were a lot of novices on the slopes but the town of Zakopane was fantastic and the skiing would be much better if the snow conditions were better.
