In the evening -if you have enough power - you will go on a small reconnaissance. You will visit Zakopane centre : famous Krupówki street & Równia Krupowa Park.

Your skipass is purchased for 4 hours. For the last 1 hour you can practice what you have learned with the trainer or you can relax in a nearby pub to gain strength before the next active day ;)

During one hour fun with happy husky dogs you will get a chance to ride a dog sleigh yourself on a course of appr. 200 meters, as well as cover a longer track of 2 km with a guide.

Now you deserve a decent dinner... :)

Pictures taken from there will be your favorites! In a large mountain hut you will eat something, drink hot tea or traditional mulled wine.

It is also a perfect day for getting to know Zakopane more. Your city guide will take you to most important places related to Zakopane's history and culture.
