The last world cup of the season was in Zakopane, Poland home of the ski jumping world cup and gateway to the Tatra’s Mountains. Unfortunately due to the weather, we never really saw the mountains but they sure do look beautiful in the photos.
Even though we could not due the planned course, the organizers did an exceptional job creating a descent course with the conditions we had.
It was one of the best organized races I have been to and the enthusiasm for ski mountaineering was also impressive.
We also enjoyed seeing and experiencing the culture of Zakopane. In my mind, one of the best way to see another country is to go to a race and experience the culture through meeting the locals.
