Ski & Sun Świeradów Zdrój - the gondola lift is able to take about 2,400 skiers in eight-seater comfortable cars in an hour to the summit of the Jizera Stog (1107m). Unfortunately, there is only one 2.5 km route leads down (average gradient of 19%). Most of it is relatively easy. However, the narrow fairly steep initial section, which is often icy, makes it too difficult for first-timer skiers. Additionaly, the end of the route is a bit steeper and the hummocks form there quite quickly. The high bandwidth of the gondola means that there are almost no queues at the lower station. If there is a que, it moves quickly, but at the same time there is a large crowd on the route, which negatively affects driving safety.
The route is artificially snowed and illuminated. It is perceived as one of the three longest and best floodlitted slopes in Poland. The ski resort has a ski and snowboard school, equipment rental, hotel and restaurant. Link
