City Skiing

The ski season is in full swing and there is no need to head for the hills. Warsaw has recently added skiing to its many attractions. The Górka Szczęśliwicka (Szczęśliwicka Hill) slope has reopened after three years now that City Hall has taken it over from Energopol.

The company stopped paying rent in 2005 and the city of Warsaw spent almost a year negotiating terminating the contract with the company. The case finished up in court where Energopol's zl.30 million breach-of-contract claim was reduced to zl.10 million. The Warsaw Sports and Recreation Center is the new administrator of Szczęśliwicka Hill.

It may not be the Alps, or even Zakopane, but Górka Szczęśliwicka is open all year round, and is the only facility of its kind in Warsaw. The slope is 227 meters long and 75 m high and has a surface area of 9,000 square meters. It has an artificial surface, sprinkled with water in the summer. In winter, snow cannon make up for deficiencies in the real thing. A two-seat chair lift and a button lift take skiers and snowboarders to the top.

Górka Szczęśliwicka only has a service center open at present but intends to add ski rental and dining outlets in the near future.
