Paste Magazine: Popova Shapka in Top Balkan Skigebiete für 2017


Das Online Magazin "Paste magazine" stellt in seinem Artikel Breathtaking Balkans: Top 7 Ski Destinations sieben Skigebiete im Atemberaubenden Balkan vor. Darunter ist auf Platz 6. Popova Shapka im Westen Makedoniens gelistet.

Hier der originale Wortlaut auf Englisch:

 Popova Šapka, Macedonia

Though the facilities at Popova Šapka harken back to its Communist-era foundation, the snow cover here is consistent enough to guarantee good skiing from January to March. With only about six miles of groomed terrain, the resort can entertain beginners and intermediates happily for a day or two, but the real draw for experts is the area’s immense backcountry. Local snow cat operator Eskimo Freeride has been offering well-priced backcountry ski tours here since 2008.

-Number of trails: 15, with 2 chairlifts and 7 drag lifts 
-Difficulty: beginner to intermediate, with backcountry ski options for experts 
-Price of lift ticket: 900 MKD ($15) for an adult day pass
