Employees have already started working on new projects and preparations for the summer, as well as the next winter season. Olympic beauty Bjelasnica will experience a real flourishing. Already from mid-April, they will start with works that will enrich the offer of the mountain, as well as its look.
“In comparison to the previous season, this one was much better. We recorded a large number of visitors. With the 31st of March, we are closing the season and moving to the implementation of capital projects. We will start with disassembly of three seater ski lift and install and setting of six seater lifts that will go from Babin do to intermediate stop, a four-seater cable car that will go from the intermediate stop to the top of Bjelasnica and artificial refreshing that will cover the pre-war path downhill and cradle,” said Midhat Hubijar, director of the ZOI’84.
They expect to open the next winter season much earlier thanks to artificial snowing, and that it will last for a month longer.
