Full review

Harenda provides a challenging slope for developing beginners; a choice of 3 lifts allows beginners to progressively go further up the slope and tackle slightly slightly steeper terrain each time. The downside of this is that the bottom of the slope becomes quite congested and icier early in the afternoon as the snow is scraped off by continuous snow ploughing and boarders stopping and side slipping near the end of the short run. A fairly modern 4 seat chair lift provides access to the red and black slope which are more challenging than expected during periods of limited snow - again they get quite icy quite quickly, although they were much better each morning. Unlike in France, you won't see a piste basher grooming the pistes at all during the day. The ski pass is relatively cheap at approx 100 zl for the day and provides options of skiing by the hr if preferred.the steepness on the main slope. There are two mountain restaurants at the bottom of the slope and both are good value, we fed a family of 5 with drinks for approx 50 zl or £10. Good for a one off holiday, but severely lacking in variety. Other ski stations provide the additional variety, but unfortunately there is not one ski pass which allows access to all locations in Zakopane. This is a real shame. Ski rental is easy, good value, with good quality equipment.
