What you need to know:
Resorts – Montenegro has two main ski resorts, Kolašin (1450m) and Savin Kuk (1515), which can be found in the national park of Durmitor, amongst other smaller, rather quaint resorts dotted around the mountainous region of the country.
Best for – Montenegro is a great destination for backcountry and freeride skiing and snowboarding, in other words venturing off-piste, and this is truly the best way to explore the Montenegrin mountains. The country is also fast becoming a renowned SnowKite destination thanks to vast open stretches of land with strong winds during the winter season. So if you fancy trying your hand at a spot of Snowkiting, try Žabljak or Sinjajevina.
Activities – Skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, tobogganing and snowmobiling are all in abundance in the skiing regions of Montenegro.
Levels – All resorts and ski slopes are family friendly and any level of skier can enjoy the fantastic skiing in Montenegro.
Après-Ski – There are some great clubs and slope-side café’s in Kolašin and Žabljak for those of you after the après-ski scene. Sipping on some hot šljivovica (plum brandy) whilst gazing out over Mt. Komovi is a truly unforgettable experience!
Ultimately, Montenegro offers you a totally different experience; the chance to ski somewhere new, knowing that very few people have skied there before; so shake up your traditions and head to Montenegro!
