We shall start our view to skiing places from Wiezyca. This is the highest peak in Pomorze and the most popular skiing place among the skiers. “Koszałkowo”. That is its name, is the biggest skiing centre in the region. There are two slopes: 3 and 150 metres long. They are opened despite the snowfall – when the temperature is below 0 and there is no snow, snow guns are used. “Koszałkowo” is truly a now city with 8 ski lifts, snowtubing trucks, equipment rental places, services facilities, skiing schools and restaurant facilities.
Next to “Koszałkowo” there is the next place – Kotlinka. It is a 320 metres long slope, a short learning slope and a tire slope. There is no worries about lack of snow here either. They use snow guns and due to the fact that the slope is illuminated, it can be used till late evening hours.
One can also ski and use the snowboard in Trzepowo. There are 2 300 metres, ski, T-bar lifts here. Those who start their skiing adventure can use 100 metres learning ski lift. In Trzepowo there is also two lines for snowtubing (the longest in Pomerania) and the skiing nursery.
