The slopes and cable cars in the Beskids are open. Tourists bypass the rules and go sledding and skitouring. Is this a mockery of a pandemic?

Lots of tourists decided to spend the first day of the New Year 2021 in the Beskids on the slopes – cable cars work for tourist traffic, and walkers take advantage of it and go out with sledges or apples to slide down the snow. It was similar on Sunday, January 3 – Szyndzielnia in Bielsko-Biała and Biały Krzyż in Szczyrk were besieged by tourists. Effect? The White Cross is closed to any tourist traffic! Even for tobogganers.

Closed ski slopes are not empty – the situation is taken advantage of by walkers and parents with children, who come in large numbers with sledges and apples to slide down the Beskid slopes. As the cable cars are open (for tourist traffic only) crowds of tourists headed for the slopes. On Sunday, January 3, Szyndzielnia in Bielsko-Biała experienced a siege, where there is no ski slope, but the place for sledging is perfect. Effect? Dozens of families with children on sledges and apples took advantage of this opportunity.

Even more people turned up at the White Cross in Szczyrk. Although closed to skiers, this ski complex attracted many families with children from December 28. However, Miarka changed on Sunday, January 3 – after the police intervention, the owners of the Biały Krzyż complex informed that the slope was closed to any tourist traffic. This prohibition also applies to tobogganers and people using other slides.

On the first day of the New Year, many people went to the Beskids to spend a few hours in winter, snowy scenery and nice, sunny weather. Many people used the operating cable cars and gondolas. Hala Skrzyczeńska in Szczyrk Mountain Resort, which can be reached by gondola, was very popular. On the New Year’s Eve in Hala Skrzyczeńska, many people were walking, sledding or sledding or apples. Ski-tourers used to close the slopes and go hiking in the mountains on skis.
