Czechs Ski touring Montenegro
Lukas Picmaus, Tomas Laburda and Petr Neuwirth, are a group of friends (freeriders) from the Czech Republic. They were ski touring Montenegro in early april and here is the report.
As last time, we received a warm welcome from hearty people, great cuisine with traditional coffee and of course beautiful mountains. Our goal was to climb the mountain Bobotov Kuk in Durmitor mountain range and Maja Jezerce in Prokletije. Unfortunately, the weather was against us. A longer stay in higher mountain altitudes became complicated and quite dangerous due to the substantial snowfall. However, even in such heavy conditions Montenegro has proved to be a good destination with wide range of skiing possibilities. We aimed our attention to the ski resorts Savin Kuk and Kolasin 1450, where the uncomfortable snowfall turned out to be an excellent powder maker. These resorts offered us seemingly endless possibilities of various descents available, full of great snow. Nevertheless, in the following four days we could taste it only lightly. That’s also why we wondered, already during our journey through the Hungarian plains back home, when it will be possible for us to visit Montenegro again and complete the work we have obviously left unfinished.
