Szczyrk is a town in the Beskid Slaski, situated in the valley of the Zylica, 15 kilometres south of Bielsko-Biala and 17 kilometres south of Zywiec. The town is a popular winter sports centre, with over 60 km of ski routes served by 30 ski lifts. Two of ski routes comply to the FIS standards, many are supplied with snow and lit. There are FIS-licensed runs for snowboards (half pipe giant slalom and parallel).The principal training centre for Poland's Winter Olympic athletes is based in the town, where they train for events such as skiing, ski jumping and ice skating. The ski jumping in the Youth Winter Olympics 2009 took place in Szczyrk. The two mountain ranges that surround the valley are dominated by the peaks of Skrzyczne (1,257m) and Klimczok (1,117m), both of significant interest to tourists.
