Package Itinerary

Amazing scenery contrasting a snowy white mountain overlooking the enormous surface with all tons of blue color of one and only, Ohrid Lake. The tour starts at about 1650m until where we have organized transport by car or van. This road is not cleaned regularly so the ski tour might start 100m lower in conditions of heavy snow on the road.

We will pass through an epic beach forest with moderate steep trails. After 40min walk we make a break at the exit of the forest where usually in good weather conditions we can start having a nice view of Ohrid Lake. As we go higher the views are getting more and more breathtaking. The tour continues through a narrow gorge to come up to a viewpoint and eventually a second short break before continuing towards the summit following a bit steeper trail for another 1:15 min. The snow conditions here are changeable, the proximity of the lake makes the snow structure different from other mountains, still enjoyable for all ski touring, telemark and freeride addicts. It is also suitable for snow shoeing.

The descent can depend on weather and snow conditions. One option is to ski down on a long meadow facing the lake, orientation W - SW. Beautiful for late afternoon sunset runs in winter and early spring. Another option for more extreme riders are short but steep couloirs facing N or connecting a longer but less steep 4.5km line with 655m altitude difference.
