The fresh mountain air is certainly good for the body, and there is plenty of fresh air on the beautiful mountains of Serbia, guaranteeing a refreshing and rejuvenating vacation. An active holiday, with time spent outdoors in the crisp mountain air, combined with a peerless range of facilities guarantees fun times that will make guests want to return to a different ski resort of Serbia for their next winter holiday. No one ever dreamed that in the 21st century one single event would affect absolutely every aspect of the economy and society, and that it would force us to keep so much distance from each other. However, there are still some places which have managed to do what seemed impossible and offer activities that make us feel as if everything is in its right place.

Winter holidays will definitely happen this year, which means that this is the right time to consider where we might go and still feel completely safe. The new normal circumstances have forced us to think about masks first, and only then to choose the place where we have the chance sneak a breath of fresh air. Skiing and snowboarding are the only sports in the world that provide maximum security. Once you hit the slopes, you are fully equipped, meaning that you are wearing a bandana, a face mask that protects you from the cold air and snow, while also protecting you from contracting any viruses, while gloves are also mandatory, as well as googles, and a helmet. Currently there is no better place for having a safe tourist experience than the ski resorts in Serbia – Kopaonik, Tornik (Zlatibor), and Stara Planina.

Kopaonik is an ideal tourist destination that allows you to take deep breaths, try out popular winter activities and enjoy a holiday for the body and the soul. The ski slopes that offer more than 60 km of perfectly groomed runs are perfect for enjoying your favourite winter activities.

The Kopaonik Ski Centre continues to grow in popularity and facilities and offers countless opportunities to visitors. The Mountain of the Sun, as it is also known, offers ideal conditions for a holiday on the snow with more than 200 sunny days a year. If you like to feel the snow glide under your feet or you are more interested in a crazy adventure, this place is ideal for you. And it is constantly developing. Over the past two years, as many as four new runs have been established and the state-of-the-art gondola is now in place which connects the foot of the mountain with the centre of the ski resort, as well as other amenities, such as a helipad, and a snowmaking facility for the Bela Reka run. Passionate skiers can be sure that this destination will provide everything they dream of when they think of winter and skiing because, in addition to all the fun daily activities, the magic continues on the night ski trails. Kopaonik is one of the safest and most attractive ski centres, and this is why it hosted one of the most prestigious competitions in early 2021. The World Ski Federation recognised the potential of the largest ski resort in Serbia and awarded the organisation the European Cup for Women, which was held between 22 and 26 February 2021. On Kopaonik, investment was made in the development of new runs, including lighting them, expanding the snowmaking system, the garage, the double ski lift at Marijine Vode, and the installation of an adventure park, an artificial slope, a heliport, and other projects.

Activities on the snow are very important for the preservation of a healthy body and a happy mind, but Kopaonik also offers a wide range of entertainment opportunities. Adrenaline-rush activities, snow groomer tours, night skiing and sledging, and an unforgettable night out after working on your muscles are just some of the reasons why you will always want to come back to this snow-covered beauty.
