Spust sa vrha Balkana – KOPAONIK

Kao strastveni skijaš i ovaj blog je delom posvećen skijanju. U proteklih godinu dana, a danas je godišnjica ovog bloga, upoznali smo se sa jednim od najeksluzivnijih i najpopularnijih ski centara ST. MORITZ – TOP OF THE WORLD i jednim od najinteresantnijih ski centara SKI DUBAI.

As passionate skier this blog is also partly dedicated to skiing. In the past year, and today is the anniversary of this blog, we met with one of the most exclusive and most popular ski resorts  ST. MORITZ – TOP OF THE WORLD and one of the most interesting ski centers SKI DUBAI.

Rodjen sam u Kruševcu, gradu koji je na samo sat vremena vožnje udaljen od Kopaonika, i predstavlja možda najsavremeniji i najbolji ski centar na Balkanu. Od petog razreda osnovne škole do sad, teško je izbrojati koliko sam puta bio na ovom, po meni, veoma značajnom ski centru, i rešio da vam malo predstavim i opišem KOPAONIK.

I was born in Krusevac, a town which is only one hour driving from Kopaonik, and is perhaps the most modern and the best ski center in the Balkans. From fifth grade to now, it is hard to count how many times I’ve been at this, I think, very significant ski center, and decided to give you a little present and describe KOPAONIK.

Planina Kopaonik se nalazi u centralnom delu Srbije na 270km od glavnog grada Srbije Beograda, sa najvišim Pančićevim vrhom od 2017m nadmorske visine. Skijalište poseduje 24 ski lifta i oko 70 km staza za skijanje svih kategorija. Statistika pokazuje da na Kopaoniku imamo 200 sunčanih dana godišnje, a 160 dana gde je planina pokrivena snegom. Kako je u poslednjih par godina klima sve toplija, uloženo je dosta da se gotovo sve staze pokriju najsavremenijim snežnim topovima, koji produžavaju skijašku sezonu i održavaju staze na zavidnom nivou.

Mount Kopaonik is located in the central part of Serbia at 270km from the Serbian capital of Belgrade, with the highest Pancic peak at 2017m altitude. Ski resort has 24 ski lifts and about 70 km of trails for skiing all categories. Statistics show that in Kopaonik, we have 200 days of sunshine per year and 160 days where the mountain is covered in snow. As in recent years climate warming, invested a lot to almost all routes cover most modern snow cannons, which extend the ski season and keep the lanes at a high level.

Odnos cene i kvaliteta najviše privlači strane turiste, uglavnom iz Rusije, Rumunije ali i iz drugih evropskih zemalja. Jedan od glavnih razloga za njihovu posetu, pored skijanja i odmora, je i noćni život koji ova planina nudi. Na Kopaoniku ćete naći nešto što drugi zimski centri ne nude u toj meri, a odnose se na klubove, pabove i restorane. Teško da vas bilo koji restoran koji izaberete neće ostaviti bez teksta, što se tiče domaće kuhinje koja je karakteristična za ovaj predeo ( kajmak, ajvar, pršuta…).

Bargain attracts the most foreign tourists, mainly from Russian, Romania, England and from other European countries. One of the main reasons for their visit, as well as skiing and rest, is nightlife that this mountain offers. Kopaonik will find something other winter sports not offered at the extent, and they relate to clubs, pubs and restaurants. Any restaurant is good choose for you, the local cuisine with amazing food is typical for this area.

Staze Gobelja, Krčmar, Gvozdac, Crna Duboka… nude i vrhunskim skijašima užitak a često se organizuju i takmičenja na nivou Srbije i Balkana. Snow Park, skijanje po dubokom snegu i neuređenim stazama je odličan adrenalinski izazov i za najhrabrije. Kopaonik je odličan izbor i za one koji žele produžen aktivni vikend, a gradsku gužvu i nervozu da zamene planinskom zimskom idilom.

Slopes Gobelja, Krcmar, Gvozdac … also for good skiers offer great pleasure, and often organization of competitions. Snow Park, skiing deep snow and unregulated slopes is a great adventure and adrenaline challenge for the bravest. Kopaonik is an excellent choice for those who want an active extended weekend, and city traffic and nervousness to replace winter mountain idyll.

Utisci dana 20.01.2015. Prelep sučani dan, sa svim stazama u funkciji, dobro uređenim i utabanim.

Tips on 20.01.2015. Beautiful Sunny day, with all tracks in operation, well regulated and well beaten.

Nadam se da sam vas malo zaintrigirao kako bi se odlučili da posetite ovaj ski centar, a uveren sam da nećete zažaliti. Vidimo se gore!

I hope that I have a little intrigued to decide to visit the ski center, and I am convinced that you will not regret it. See you on Kopaonik!

I šta više , ovde se nalaze moderne žičare koje obezbeđuju minimalno vreme čekanja. Ovde je zimski turizam rođen pre skoro 150 godina. Planinski lanci, freeride padine, snežni parkovi za extremne sportove, prostrane staze predstavljaju velike izazove za ljubitelje zimskih sportova. Na jednom delu planine nalazi se i specijalno pripremljena veleslalom Audi Word Cup staza sa kapijama, radarom za brzinu i satovima za merenje vremena, koju mogu da koriste i rekreativni skijaši kao adrenalinski izazov.

Zato se sa razlogom može reći da je ovo jedan od najboljih ski centara na svetu ako ne i najbolji. Kao iskusnom skijašu i instruktoru veoma impresivno mi je bilo videti sve te odlicno tehnički obučene skijaše od 7 do 77 godina, što se može i očekivati od švajcarske nacije koja je sa razlogom jedna od najtrofejnijih na svetu, kada se govori o zimskim sportovima.

Tidiness trails, ski lifts, ski maps, culture on the ski slopes are really left a strong and positive impression on me. So can reasonably be said that this is one of the best ski resorts in the world maybe the best. As an experienced skier and instructor very impressive to me was to see all these great technically trained skiers from 7 to 77 years, as can be expected from the nation of Switzerland, which is also a reason one of the most successful nations in the world as for winter sports.
