TO THE SUMMIT OF BUTOROWY WIERCH

15/08/2010 23:44

1,160 m AMSL
Date of your first ascent:…
There are two routes: direct, or via Gubałówka; never the other way round. Walk along Krupówki Street to the very end and then go into the market near the cable railway station to Gubałówka.

In the middle of the market, turn left under the viaduct. Keep going straight ahead until you get to the first chair lift by Polana Szymoszkowa glade. This chair life is private and only runs in the winter for the benefit of skiers. The PKL (Polish Cable Railways) lift is a bit further on. Before setting out to Butorowy it pays to find out if the chair lift is operating, or to prepare yourself for a very short trip in case it isn’t. Breakdowns can and do happen at any time of year. The lift works in the rain; I checked it myself. It only stopped halfway up for five minutes as strong gusts of wind arrived. Goodness me, what a feeling. The chair swinging from left to right, not a living soul around, the ground far below and me, and dark misgiving about whether the operator would remember I was there. Fortunately, the wind quickly died down.

There is nothing on Butorowy but a few refreshment huts so, after drinking the customary glass of tea of beer, you might as well go back. When I said: “never the other way round” at the beginning of this section, I meant that it is ‘obligatory’ to take the downhill chair lift ride from Butorowy. This is the time to discover the attraction of this modest hill. You sit comfortably in a chair and admire the panorama of the Tatras from Mount Koszysta to Mount Babia before you. Undoubtedly the attractiveness of the vista is enhanced by the fact that the chair lift is right in front of Mount Giewont. The view below your chair is also interesting. Every time I ride it, I wonder what the lives of the people who live under its path are like: the hum of the lift all day long and the passengers peering in through their upstairs windows.
Gubałówka is often favoured over Butorowy Wierch summit, but my advice would be to go for Butorowy. Not only will see the same sights for less money, the chair lift ride is so thrilling that, to beat it, the train to Gubałówka would at least have to fall off its tracks.
