Hotel Meta Szczyrk is a four-star, beautiful hotel located, directly on the slopes in a picturesque mountain village. On the premises, there are a lot of attractions that will satisfy the needs of everyone. After an eventful day, the Wellness Zone with saunas, jazz musicians, and a swimming pool will provide guests with moments of relaxation, while winter evenings can be spent in the hotel bar with a glass of wine.
As part of the conference, we provide you with a full board in the hotel restaurant. Accommodation for you is provided in comfortable, modern double rooms, equipped with single beds, a spacious bathroom, TV and free access to the Internet.
The daily, four-hour ski practice will be conducted in a way that will leave you both fulfilled and fresh. Exercises, analysis, and plenty of riding will allow those of you who have already had previous experience with white madness to enter a higher level of skiing and provide you with a better understanding of skiing techniques. For those of you who wish to start the skiing adventure, we would love to familiarize you with the sense of freedom skiing provides, as well as, how to navigate the slopes easily and most of all safely. Of course, you can also ride on your own, without instructors, but we encourage you to take part in the training, which will be as interesting for beginners as for advanced people who will be able to explore sports skiing techniques.
Practice will be conducted in Szczyrk Moutain Resort, located proximately to the hotel. Skiers have at their disposal over 30 slopes of varying difficulty, marked out on the picturesque mountains surrounding the town. The total length of ski slopes in Szczyrk reaches 40 km.
