Ski Lessons and Rental Tour

You’ve made it this far so you must be thinking about it!

Skiing in Poland… really?

If you thought Zakopane was all smoked cheese, hiking and sleigh rides, then you’d be wrong, there’s more! Beautiful, pristine Tatra Mountains plus the crazy town of Zakopane equals one thing: Après Ski, and you can’t have Après Ski with out the skiing!

Zakopane is Poland's leading ski resort so you've stumbled upon a treat! Now that you know, don't be worried about carrying all your ski equipment through the airport just to find out they're not cool anymore and your feet have grown. And if you're thinking it's not much fun on the slopes if you have to hassle around spending hours to find equipment to hire, no need!

Zakopane Life has it all and because not everyone was born in the mountains, our young and energetic ski and snowboard instructors can meet you at your hotel and make sure you have a good time on the slopes (and live to tell the tale...).

For best price deals...

The ski instructor was the best! He was a really good instructor, very patients and we learnt a lot where we were able to skii on an advanced slope by ourself on the third day

Marcela Sanguinetti 13th January 2015

Perfect. It was great. The instructor was a little bit late, but he was very good, we had a great time and we learnt.

Paul Maddocks 17th March 2014

The ski lesson was excellent. My partner was only able to plough and after a 2hour personal lesson she was parallel ski with confidence. My 3 hour snowboard lesson was also great, my confidence was boosted and my skills improved.

Guest 10th February 2014

We were very impressed with the quality of our beginner lessons with Lech.

Samantha 16th January 2014

Excellent and very well organised and Lech was a great instructor. Flexible and fun. 10

Guest 1st April 2013

We were very happy with the ski lessons as my wife learned the basics of skiing by a very good teacher. He also acted as a psychologist to remove the fears :) It was also very good to see the many different ski slopes of Zakopane and with pick up from the hotel, it was truly great.

Guest 12th March 2013

Really enjoyed the 2 days skiing and lessons. Equipment was good and cheap, would definitely recommend to friends

Agnieszka Sheppard 25th February 2013

Excellent, ski instructor was friendly and adapted to the different skill levels of the group. The hire place was also great!

Triona McGrath 18th February 2013

Our lessons and rental were fantastic. Leich and Jacob were so helpful throughout the entire week and went above and beyond to ensure that our trip was going well. The lessons and gear rental were very reasonable and was definitely the best part of our trip.

Barry Sheehan 16th February 2013

Ski lessons were exceptional. Our instructor in particular was probably the best I've ever had (thank you Jakub) he personally collected us & brought us to the various slopes himself & dropped us home each time. The lesson rates were very, very good value too. Communication with Kasia at Zakopane-Life was excellent & she was very helpful with any requests we had. The only gripe I had with the whole experience was with the equipment, which was pretty average standard/condition - but I guess you get what you pay for. The guys in the rental shop were all very friendly, helpful and efficient, so not much fault at all.

Bernard Davies 31st January 2013

We did not have ski lessons! The arrangements re. ski hire and the service was very good!

Guest 8th April 2012

Matthew was our ski instructor. He was very patient with us and a great teacher.

Hazel Brimmell 14th March 2012

our instructor Lech was excellent and could not have been more helpful, he gave us the confidence we needed to ski better than we have before. The skis were of a good quality considering they were rental skis.

Marcelo De Nardin 13th March 2012

Good equipment and great lessons, we never skied before and it was great.

Phil Hardman 9th March 2012

This package was fantastic. Everything was arranged and ran like clock work. The instructor picked us up, arranged ski hire, passes and dropped us off. He was brilliant. I would definatly use again

Catherine Moore 24th February 2012

The ski lessons were excellent with a very knowledgeable instructor who was able to teach with pacience and an interest in every person in the group, who was very friendly and spoke excellent english. The ski rental was good with high quality equiptmemt the only downside was it was a little far to take the skis back however the taxi was happy to take us there an back

Ross Hardy 21st February 2012

The lessons were great. both instructors spoke excellent English, were very patient and very good instructors. They could not be faulted.

Nina Hughes 20th February 2012

Szymon was absolutely amazing... Very patient, kind and an excellent teacher. I hope to come back next year for more one to one lessons cause he taught me so much and really built my confidence. Fab teacher!

Neil Cashin 23rd January 2012

Very reasonable price, and the instructor Maciek was a gentleman.

Guest 19th January 2012

The instructor was very experienced and patient, and I would recommend the ski lessons to a friend.

Mhairi Smith 15th January 2012

The ski lessons were great for me. I was a complete beginner and the one to one help I got from my instructor was just what I needed. He came on time to my hotel to collect my boyfriend and I and we went to pick up our equipment before heading to the slopes. My boyfriend had another instructor because he was snowboarding and I was skiing. We both took 2hour lessons on 2 days and that took me from never having skied before to going it alone for the rest of the holiday with confidence and I loved it! Thank you so much for a fantastic time at such an amazing price.

Guest 4th January 2012

Brilliant, ski rental gear arrived exactly on time and was what we asked for. Also all the gear was new and in good condition. The lessons were affordable and very useful.

Simone Beer 3rd January 2012

Leche our Ski instructor was really helpful and gave us the right advice to make sure we were confident when we were ready to ski alone and he helped us after our lessons to book taxi's and organise the Husky dog ride which was an amazing experience. The lessons and the tour really helped to make our activities on our holiday go smoothly and the price was very reasonable. Thanks you very much we had a great time in Zakopane!1

Sofia Bjorsson 25th March 2011

the equipment was ok, and good value for the money, but the problems occurred while renting them lowers the general grade.

Andy Ryan 18th March 2011

Lessons were excellent, great value and will certainly be back!

Donna Rush 13th March 2011

Joanna Hackett 7th March 2011

Ski lesson with Jakob was excellent and the ski hiring went very smoothly.

Darren Dennis 1st March 2011

Alison Sumner 1st March 2011

Claire Morton 25th February 2011

PERFECT! couldn't have been better. maybe let people know to bring passport to hire for extra days but couldn;t fault. will come back next year.

Sharon 22nd February 2011

Excellent instructor who spoke great English. Pick up and drop off from hotel was a bonus

Scott & Ula 17th February 2011

Well, what can I say about Lech other than 'high five'. An excellent and patient instructor who was extremely friendly, courteous and fun. Made learning that much more enjoyable and was not critical when the "mad english man" went hurtling out of control down the slope. I would definately recommend Lech to anyone who wants to learn to ski.

Ally O'Neill 11th February 2011

Extremely smooth operation. Lech came right to our hostel to pick us up and was helpful during the fitting of the ski equipment and willing to change sizes etc. And we thought it was great that we visited different slopes each day. Great. Perhaps the only thing that for future reference you should tell customers they have to pay for the lift back from the slopes.

Edward Small 1st February 2011

Instructor was great

Craig Glover 25th January 2011

Picked up from our hotel by our instuctor Lech and taken to the hire shop where all our equipment was waiting for us then onto the slopes for our lesson. Excellent

Guest 9th January 2011

Lech was fantastic with the kids! We were very satisfied with the private skiing lessons.

Guest 4th January 2011

Everyone efficient and friendly

Jason Martin 28th December 2010
