Kasprowy Wierch is the only skiable alpine mountain in Poland, considered to be the place with the best skiing conditions in the country. It is the highest ski resort in the country, located near Zakopane. In 2000, the chairlift at Hala Gąsienicowa was replaced, and in 2007, the legendary, pre-war cable car was replaced. This iconic Polish resort is very fond of skiers, but due to its location in the Tatra National Park, investments here are practically non-existent. Hence, Kasprowy Wierch remains unfit for skiing in unfavorable weather (no snowmaking facilities), and the more than 50-year-old ski lift in the Goryczkowa Valley is often closed. The resort in the upper part offers only difficult (black) routes. Access to the lower cable car station is possible only by bus.
