I skied a farm field about five miles east of Zakopane. On a rope tow. It is still my only experience skiing in Europe.
There was an article in Ski Magazine a few years ago about skiing in Zakopane. Apparently poaching in the trees is a HUGE no-no. But they say the tree skiing is pretty frickin' worth it, too. I don't think that chute underneath the tram is ever officially open, either.
I've heard pretty good things about Slovakia and Johnfmh, I believe, can personally attest to the skiing in Slovenia, which is supposed to be very good (not Austria or Switzerland, but getting there).
For the real adventurous, there's always Israel
, and Iran
. Yee haw.
If you're still bored after skiing with Ajamahygiene or whatever his name is, there's Moonshine Mountain.
