Skiing in Croatia

Medvednica is a mountain in central Croatia, just north of Zagreb and marking the southern border of the historic region of Zagorje. The highest peak, at 1,035 m, is Sljeme. There is a winter sports centre on the northern slopes towards Sljeme. The center has hosted several FIS World Cup slalom skiing races, known as the Snow Queen Trophy. The winter sports centre consists of one chairlift for three persons and two T-bar lifts. Equipment for producing artificial snow has been added, and because of that the skiing season has been prolonged to more than four months. There are three ways to reach the mountain: by car, on foot (there are numerous mountain paths) or by gondola lift, which starts from the Gra?ani neighborhood. The cable car has run since 1963, and takes four people, with a 23 minute journey time. On Medvednica there are dozen of mountain huts for traditional one-day trips in the mountain. Because of its proximity to Zagreb, Medvednica has many visitors, especially during weekends. Among the most popular sites is the Veternica cave with a 2,622 meters long main channel.

Platak is a ski resort located north of Rijeka, Croatia.

Velika, a village and recreational centre on the southern slopes of Papuk Mountain in the Požega Valley in Slavonia, 12 km north of Požega; elevation 278 m. Velika is the major starting point for ascents to Papuk Mountain (954 m). Sports and recreational opportunities include walking, hiking, soccer (NK Kamen Ingrad) and swimming in the summer months and skiing in the winter months, on the location Jezerce Nevoljas (ski slopes and ski-lift). Hunting and angling opportunities are provided nearby.
