What you need to know:
Resorts – Montenegro has two main ski resorts, Kolasin (1450 m.) and Savin Kuk (1515 m.), which can be found in the national park of Durmitor, amongst other smaller, rather quaint resorts dotted around the mountainous region of the country. Montenegro is a great destination for back country and free ride skiing and snowboarding, in other words venturing off-pistes, and this is truly the best way to explore the Montenegrin mountains.
Montenegro is also fast becoming a renowned snow-kite 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 Zabljak or Sinjajevina. Activities – Skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, tobogganing and snowmobiling are all in abundance in the skiing regions of Montenegro.
Both Montenegro winter spots Kolasin & Zabljak have some great clubs and slope-side café’s for those of you after the après-ski scene. Sipping on some hot Sljivovica (plum brandy) whilst gazing out over Mountain Komovi is a truly unforgettable experience!
In Kolašin there are hotels Bianca Resort and Spa 4* and Lipka 4*. Bianca is an exclusive resort, providing all the sophistication and comforts of a world-class hotel combined with a chalet ambiance and elegance of a private residence. The warmth of the interior massive wooden design in combination with clear stone surfaces brings the feeling of home away from home for each of their guests. The Lipka hotel in Kolašin includes modern standards of service and a mountain hotel design.
This 4 star hotel (received a Wild Beauty Award in 2011) is located near the beautiful National Park Biogradska Gora, the last rain forests in Europe, with the Biogradsko lake as the main attraction located at 1094 masl, but also other water areas and endemic species of plants and animals, which attract lovers of nature. For those who prefer milder winter temperatures, head south, where the weather remains clement and ancient cities and rich traditions await for discovery.
After days on the slopes, hearty, traditional Montenegrin cuisine is served along with a glass of mulled wine in the rustic cabins on the slopes. Or you could travel back to town.
