KOPAONIK – The first serious snow fell on Kopaonik, and the Ski Resorts of Serbia started with artificial snowmaking and preparation of the slopes.
The first serious snow fell on Kopaonik this autumn, so a 10-centimeter snow cover was formed.
Preparations for the upcoming winter season are underway. The ski resorts of Serbia do the latter
checks of the overhauled system, and artificial snowmaking of the trails has already begun.
The height of the snow cover on Kopaonik is 10 cm. Good conditions have already been created for artificial snowmaking and trail preparation, says the head of the Kopaonik Ski Center, Darko Jovanović.
“The temperature is in the minus, which was a condition for starting the production of artificial snow, so we will also try the system that was overhauled during the summer season. About 400 devices and three pumping stations are active. Everything works without a hitch and a serious amount of artificial snow was made during these trials. We are hoping for sub-zero temperatures so that everything will be ready for the “Ski opening”, said Jovanović.
“Ski opening” officially starts on December 7, and on that day skiing will be free.
Until today, a 15 percent discount on the price of the ski pass was valid. The Ski Resorts of Serbia announce various discounts in the days leading up to the Ski Opening.
“From November 26 to December 3, the discount will be 10 percent, and from December 3 until the end of the ski season, tickets purchased through the webshop will be discounted by five percent,” said Jovanović.
New snowfalls are expected on Kopaonik, so if favorable weather conditions remain, there is a possibility that the ski season will start a little earlier.
