14 lifts including 3 chairlifts and a dozen of surface lifts with the lift for children and beginners "CYPISEK" make Korbielów a ski resort.
Pilsko (1557m n.p.m.) is the second highest ski mountain in Poland after Kasprowy Wierch.
Ski runs and lifts in the Pilsko Mtn. area, in Korbielów, have the highest elevation in the Beskids, and the second highest in Poland after the ones located in the Polish Tatras. This guarantees very good snow conditions and a unique microclimate. Pilsko offers a total of 23 km ski slopes with varied ski runs. It is also an advantage that the one ski pass is valid for 8 ski lifts.
The Hucul pony is one of a few mountain ponies bred in Poland. It weights between 350 and 430 kg and the average height at withers is 135 cm. In spite of its size, the Hucul pony is heavy build and possesses a strong back, it can easily carry an adult with heavy loads. They can reach even the most inaccessible areas, therefore can be used for trail riding. The ponies are usually calm with a good disposition, what is their advantage when ridden by beginners or disabled.
They live all year in the herd on the pasture and show well-developed herd instinct. At the same time, they become attached to humans. The above advantages facilitate breeding and make this bred the best for hiking.

There are a few cycle routes and walking trails, which are circular and marked with one of the colours: yellow, red, green, blue. The routes go through the valley, but also over some lower mountains (e.g. Weska, Furmaniec) and hills. All of them are partly led along some streets in Korbielów (ul. Beskidzka, Krzesakowa, Widokowa, Graniczna, Pod Weską), so you can start from almost any place you are accommodated in or from the public car parks (in the vicinity of the Smrek inn or by the Pilsko ski resort). Mostly they run across meadows, forests or fields. Since the routes have good surface, you can easily walk long distances, admiring surrounding landscapes with Pilsko and Babia Góra in the background or observing nature.
