Where to go skiing near Warsaw
In general, Central Poland is not the hottest winter destination in Poland. For that, you would have to go to the mountains. It takes around 8 hours to get from Warsaw to Zakopane (the most popular town in the southern Poland) by train. It takes pretty much the same by car.
So sometimes you might simply give up and try skiing in the highlands. It will not take you more than 4 hours from Warsaw to get there. The most popular spots are located near Kielce and Lublin.
