Tatra mountain rescue teams were called out more than 200 times during the schools’ winter break in south-eastern Poland, dealing with injuries ranging from sprains and strains to serious spinal and head trauma.

More than 100 accidents in the Tatra mountains were ski-related. Rescue workers believe the freeze-thaw-freeze temperatures in the mountains increased the number of call-outs, as inexperienced hikers and skiers hit dangerous ice patches.

Across Poland, some 1,400 winter sports accidents have been recorded during the ‘ferie’ winter holiday. More are expected, as the children of central Poland will not have their holiday until mid-late February.
