We already have a webcams and weather pagehere on the White Side Holidays Poland ski and snowboard website that can give you the Zakopane weather forecast for the next few days and a look out at the ski slopes in Zakopane via the webcams. However, we thought we would add a more personal snow and ski report page providing you with snow reports, information about conditions on the ski slopes and any new photos we have taken will appear in the gallery at the bottom of this page.
If you start reading these ski and snow reports just remember we are here in Zakopane, we have a dustbin lid and a 30cm ruler at hand to provide accurate snow fall and weather related information, unless it snows more than 30cm, then we’ll just go straight to the slopes to enjoy the powder and forget about the website!

The last update 5 days ago was that the snow was good and things were getting warmer, scrap that. 4 days ago we got a huge snowfall overnight of around half a metre and the temperatures dropped back to -10. The weekends skiing was fantastic with the slopes in great condition for this time of year. Not sure if we’ll get any more big dumps before the end of winter but the slopes are ready to take us through until the end of winter!

A busy month, a lot of snow, a lot of guests and most importantly a lot of time on the slopes! February half term flew past but yet again the snow was great and we had a lot of return guests enjoying their second and third holidays here in Zakopane. Spring is slowly creeping up on us and although we had around 10-15cm fresh snow last night with more forecast this week Spring skiing and boarding is upon us! Anyone still keen for a last minute ski trip should get in touch now, we’ve still got snow and free rooms!

SNOW, SNOW AND MORE SNOW! The last 3 days have been stupid. It hasn’t stopped snowing, another 60cm! That says it all, conditions good, snow good, fun fun fun!
4th February 2013
Another good couple of weeks here in Zakopane, plenty of snow keeping the slopes in good shape, guests out and about learning to ski and snowboard and all looking good for February half term skiing and snowboarding over the next couple of weeks!

A tiring week of shovelling snow off the driveway every morning! We’ve had plenty of snow falling this last week in Zakopane and the conditions on the slopes have been fantastic. Kasprowy opened up last weekend and we’ve been having a lot of fun out and about at the different ski areas in and around town. The snow park in Witow is opening this weekend and we’re looking forward to more of you turning up to ski and snowboard with us over the next few months!

Happy New Year! Snow has fallen this last week and temperatures have dropped – starting to actually feel like winter in Zakopane, we were getting worried there for a while! We had guests out learning to ski and snowboard over New Year and fireworks galore were enjoyed by all our guests at nightclubs, restaurants and scenic spots around Zakopane. We’ve got a 2 day break now before more guests will turn up to a snowy Zakopane on Friday!

We’ve had a fun start to the winter if not a great one snow wise. The ski slopes opened up on December 15th after some cold weather and a good few days of snowfall in early – mid December. Recent weather has melted a lot of snow down in town and around the ski areas but thanks to the modern snow making facilities at all ski areas in and around Zakopane we’ve been skiing with no problem! More snow is forecast this week so we should be back in a snowy winter wonderland very soon!
2nd December 2012
The snow cannons are blasting away at most ski areas in and around Zakopane now and colder weather has started to blow in. Things are looking good for everywhere openening up on time in a couple of weeks! The Christmas/Winter lights have all gone up in and around town as well now so everything in Zakopane is looking very wintery!!

THE SNOW IS BACK…we make that exactly one month earlier than last years first snowfall in Zakopane (that’s what our Zakopane ski and snow report archives say), which fell on October 20th last year. This is the earliest, early season snowfall we can remember for a long time. Does early season snowfall in Zakopane’s Tatra Mountains mean we’re in for an awesome, powder-filled winter of skiing and snowboarding? Watch this space (or the White Side Holidays Poland, Zakopane weather forecast page) and keep your fingers crossed (in your mittens as it’s getting cold too). It was pouring with rain and cloudy all day today in Zakopane and this evening when the clouds broke we had to force ourselves off the couch to take and walk and get a photo. It was worth going outside for as it got us a little bit excited about the winter already, bring on another fun winter of ski and snowboard holidays in Zakopane 2012/13!
