A winter story
The story of Jahorina, Trebević, Romanija is a long one, full of snow covered woods, childrens joy and cozy homes.
The long tradition in skiing and organized skiing competitions started in 1923 when the first pair of skiis were brought to Jahorina, and the first organized skiing dates back in 1933.
The crown glory of the skiing sport in the region were the XIV Winter Olympic Games, held in 1984.
The Olympic tradition and smile are still kept in the ’Olympic Centre Jahorina’ and the mountain hosts the international Alpine skiing competition in January every year.
VThere are 25km of maintained ski pists for Alpine skiing on Jahorina ( 1529.1916 m above the sea level ). There are ski-lifts and furniculaires that cater for 7500 professional and amateur skiers every hour.
For those who love Nordic skiing, there is a piste called ’Dvorišta’ on Jahorina ( 1300-1450 m above the sea level ) with 17km of maintained pistes used both competitors and amateurs. A modern shooting gallery for biathlon is just one of the facilities for competitions such as the Balkan Championships held there in March 2004.
We strongly recommended Stambulčić piste to recreational skiers. This beatiful place on 1050m above the sea level and only 10km away from Pale. Its 1200m long piste with the level difference of 275m with a 1100m long ski-lift is very enjoyable.
