Splitboarding & Ski touring in Zakopane, poland

Ski touring & split-boarding in the Polish Tatras has long been popular with locals due to only a small part of the beautiful and wild Tatra National Park being developed with infrastructure for Alpine skiing.

Well marked routes and modern shelters combined with what seems like infinite terrain make Zakopane a serious destination for ski and split-board touring.

Some nights you will be based at one of our Eco chalets in Zakopane town, you’ll get a taste of the Snomads award winning chalet experience and have some evenings to explore this beautiful ski town.

One night takes you to our favourite cozy mountain shelter deep in Chocholowska valley, away from Zakopane and civilisation. Throughout the tour a comfortable base means you can tour up and ski down carrying minimal weight.

Our English speaking guides have grown up in the Tatras and know parts of the mountains that others don’t. On this tour you get to experience the very best terrain the Tatra mountains have to offer
