A little more than a decade ago, winter was deadly quiet for Kotelnica Mountain with the blanket of snow keeping it company.
Now, Kotelnica has emerged as a one of the most vibrant resorts with ski fans flocking to one of the trendiest resorts in Poland.
The 17th-centuryÂ village at the foot of the Tatra mountains in southern Poland was making a modest living on farming and sheep breeding. But in 2000, that changed when about 50 farmers began a joint venture to develop a ski resort, on par with those in Austria and Switzerland.
Bialka Tatrzanska, about an hour and a half drive from Krakow, is among Polandâ€™s leading centers for skiers, though less demanding and more modest compared with many West European resorts.
A recent ranking by Polandâ€™s ski centers by the Onet.pl Internet portal listed it as the countryâ€™s second most popular ski resort based on quality of slopes and other amenities. In first place was Krynica Gorska, which has been around longer and boasts more challenging slopes.
