Słotwiny Arena

Similarly to all the runs, this one will start on Krynica’s Promenade. From this place you will run straight to the Henryk-Ski ski lift hoping for a lift, but now way! You will have to get to the top on your own feet. Neither this lift nor any other will relieve your legs. After you deal with Henry and look at the beautiful panorama of Krynica-Zdrój from the top of Krzyżowa Mountain, it is time to reach the tower! To make it faster and funnier you will run down to the lower station of Arena Słotwiny to traditionally run up to the top. Of course without the help of a ski lift! Once you are on the upper station you will take the stairs (definitely not escalators!!!) to the top of the Słotwiny Arena viewing tower. There will be ….a penguin waiting for you together with a beautiful panorama of Krynica and the Beskids. After precise admiration of the view and….the penguin,you will go back on the track through ’’Drabiakówka’’. When you reach the bottom, don’t forget to have a drink and refresh yourself, because you are about to face a big challenge – the FIS ski slope colour black! Skiers usually tackle this slope from the top down, so you will have to tackle it in the opposite direction, of course… without a ski lift. And when you reach the end of the FIS slope, you will be greeted by a ski lift, which you will not take. Then you will find yourself right next to the Devil’s Stone, from where you can chase the devil to hell. After the exorcism you will find yourself on the top of Jaworzyna. Here again you will be delighted by noble views. Those cleverest will surely notice the buffet. There you will start the descent, of course along another lift. This time, however, it will be downhill for a change! Once again, you will visit the Czarny Potok to hichhike through the Holica river and reach the long-awaited finish line on the Krynica promenade!
