The tops of the mountains in Wisła can be reached in more than one way. For those who are less experienced or not fit enough there is an alternative of a cable car. Even in the summer season some cable cars wait for the tourist. The most popular are cable cars to the top of: Stożek, Skolnity, Soszów, Cieńków, Czupel and the ski jumping hill in Malinka.
Stożek - The ski resort at Stożek is situated at the foot of Mount Stożek (998 meters a.s.l.), one of the most important mountains in the Silesian Beskid. The top of the mountain is only a few hundred meters from the last stop of the cable car, next to one of the oldest tourist shelters of PTTK (Polish Tourist Organization). This is the place where you can rest a little, have some meal or even stay for a few days. It can also be a very convenient starting point for further trips to Mount Soszów, Mount Czantoria or Mount Kiczory. From the early spring to the end of autumn a lot of sports events take place on Mount Stożek as well.
Soszów - The ski resort at Soszów is situated at the foot of Soszów Wielki (886 meters a.s.l.) next to the red tourist route and it is also the first part of the Main Beskid Route. The top of the mountain is exactly between Mount Stożek and Mount Czantoria. For those who are not very keen on extensive physical effort there is a very nice, easy route to be taken – you can start your excursion at the lower cable car station Soszów then walk along the mountain ranges of Mount Cieślar and Mount Mały Stożek to the top of Mount Wielki Stożek and then take the cable car down to the valley of Łabajów, you can also walk the opposite way. There is a tourist shelter at the top of the mountain.
