elooa brings you to the Balkans, more precisely to the Šar Planina Mountains in North Macedonia and in Kosovo! Experience a top-class cultural powder adventure with elooa Pro Guiding!
The region is still under construction after the war years and while people are crowding in the well-known ski resorts of the Alps, we will not wait at any lift and will experience unlimited Freeride opportunities with the help of snowcats. No high-speed lifts with heated seats and snow-making facilities, but square kilometers of terrain for all requirements with runs up to 850 meters in altitude. Wide slopes in the upper section, narrow, steep couloirs and great variations through the forest in the lower area.
After arriving in Skopje in North Macedonia, we drive about 2 hours directly to Brezovica, the highest and probably snowiest ski area on the Balkan. We will live directly in the ski area at an altitude of 1740 meters and 100% "Balkan Style“ in a simple hotel from back in the days. The main runs are between 2300m and 1700m! As we are there at the best time of winter, further descents into the valley should be possible. If the conditions are right, thousands of vertical meters of powder runs are waiting for you every day. With 2 catboarding days we also ensure that this happens in unridden terrain. After 4 days in Kosovo we travel back to North Macedonia where 2 more days of catboarding are waiting. Popova Shapka's backcountry offers us a huge area with open and playful terrain. Huge powder turns, tree riding, cliffs, banks and 4,000 vertical meters in a breathtaking setting every day. No matter if you are already a powder professional or you have less deep snow experience, we will show you the magical world of powder together with the local guides. On the last evening we return to Skopje where we will explore the old town and celebrate the cultural highlights of the Balkans before the trip comes to an end.
During our 7-day adventure, in addition to endless powder runs, we will also experience the culture on the Balkan and get to know the local hospitality.
