For 5 days in early January of next year my girlfriend and i wish to ski in Zakopane. There are 2 websites which i have found that offer ski packages including gear rental and transport too and from your hotel. However, would it be cheaper just to get a taxi from our hotel (Hotel Helios) to different slops for 5 days and hire our ski equipment and snow clothes on arrival? Also, my girlfriend hasnt being skiing before and the last time i went skiing was 10 years ago. Is it cheaper to pay for lessons on arrival at the resorts or just buy the online packages?
