Snowshoes are a must-have for those of you who dream about exploring the inaccessible winter pathways. The weight distribution to the bigger surface allows you to move through the deep snow without collapsing. It used to be basic equipment for mountain residents, who had to move in the areas with frequent and heavy snowfall. Nowadays, they are used mainly for recreation, allowing you to enjoy different forms of winter trekking. In the Karkonosze region there are some great trails worth exploring by snowshoes. One of the most beautiful begins from the summit of Kopa mountain, accessible by chairlift from the Górny Karpacz station. After leaving the lift station, you should go up to the Śląski House, then turn slightly right once you’re on the Czech side, where you will reach the Lucni Bouda hut, along the blue trail. After a break for a pint of good Czech
beer, and some knedliki, you continue on towards Mały Szyszak. The return journey takes the red trail by Słonecznik rock, and then the yellow one to Pielgrzymy rocks, and then further along the green one through Polana, to the lower lift station in Karpacz.
