Polana Szymoszkowa is a ski resort distinguished by its beautiful views of the Tatra Mountains. Two chairlifts are available for skiers and snowboarders. The large six-person lift to the top of Gubałówka is an excellent suggestion for more advanced skiers and snowboarders as well as tourists looking for incredible views. The smaller lift running halfway up the slope is ideal for beginners. At the lower chairlift station is KidsPark Szymoszkowa, including a belt lift for the youngest skiers and snowboarders. Under the expert supervision of an instructor, children can ski for the first time.
Until 2008, the large chairlift, built by the Austrian company Doppelmayer, was the only one of its kind in Poland, with domed six-person chairs protecting passengers from rain and snow.
