He stated that the majority of ski slopes are furnished and that two mobile snow guns for making snow are ready for use.

“We also did the new modern marking of the ski slopes and guideposts at the mountain and we are currently completing the system for providing night skiing in the winter season.” – added Sokolović.

He pointed out that “during the winter season, in the period of 12 to 14 December all visitors will have the chance to ski for free. Several thousands of visitors who love mountains, skiing and snow are expected.”
