The ski centre boasts all the contents required to ensure your full enjoyment, from a ski school, ski equipment hiring and servicing, to night skiing. It is an ideal destination for a family holiday with children, as you can enjoy numerous hiking tours and lake visits, as well as many traditional ethno-households offering an ecological experience of mountain life, complete with riding schools and local cuisine. Bjelasica Mountain is characterised by three specificities: it is very traversable and the highest mountain peaks are easily accessible; it has a great wealth of forests; and it is abundant in flowing waters. Bjelasica’s highest peak is Crna glava [Black head], at a height of 2,139 metres. This is an ideal destination for winter breaks and skiing.
