In 1984, Sarajevo played host to the world during the Winter Olympics. 35 years later, it remains an excellent destination for winter sport.
We work with both Olympic mountains: Jahorina (pronounced YA-HOR-EE-NA) and Bjelasnica (pronounced BEE-YELL-ASH-NEET-SA).
Jahorina is the most developed mountain as regards facilities and accommodation choice and so we mostly work with this mountain. Stretching to 1,916 metres above sea level, Jahorina is normally covered in between of one and three metres of snow during the Winter (December to end of March). With 45 kilometres of trails and eight ski lifts (comprising a BRAND NEW gondola lift for 2019/20, three modern six-seater fast lifts, one two-seater lift and 3 button lifts), this mountain can host around 17,000 skiers per hour.

In spite of these excellent facilities and ski fields, Jahorina remains a relatively undiscovered gem of Europe. Avoiding the congestion and high prices of the Alps of Western Europe, Sarajevo's wintersports scene is a haven for in-the-know skiers and snowboarders.
With equipment hire for only €12 per day and food and drinks payable in the local “Bosnian Marks,” you pay only a fraction of what you would in Austria, Switzerland or France. As an example, a large beer in many French ski resorts is around 8 Euros, whereas in Bosnian ski resorts it is only around 2 Euros!!!
New to skiing or snowboarding or feel that you are a lower intermediate skier? Then this is the perfect resort for you - why pay for expensive lift-passes in French or Austrian resorts when you can only use a few of the slopes when you can come to Bosnia and take advantage of low ski-lift passes and use much more of the pistes! There are slopes for every skill level from the most intense adrenaline junkies to those looking for a gentler ride. We also offer ski and snowboard lessons from as little as €12 an hour per person for group lessons or €25 an hour for individual 1-to-1 sessions.
