The Serbian Ski Resort of Kopaonik has direct access to 20 individual pistes, served by 21 ski lifts.

With skiing above 2000 metres, snow cover is generally reliable.

Skiing in Kopaonik

There are nearly 60 km of well-maintained ski-runs including three International Ski Federation (FIS) standard runs are served by 16 ski and chair lifts and a further four nursery lifts. The maximum vertical rise is 521 metres, while the longest run 3.5 km long (just over two miles).

Kopaonik is very well suited to beginners with four nursery slopes with their own lifts, a well respected ski school and two thirds of the terrain graded easy for rapid progression. The fact that the lift ticket costs somewhere between a third and a half the equivalent Alpine resort price is a big help for many too, with Learn To Ski packages available including tuition and rentals. Most accommodation and facilities (for example, cafes to collapse in) are very convenient to the nursery slopes too.

Intermediate standard skiers will find seven trails graded red, the longest the 2km long Krcmar run. Although there is not initially much to attract advanced skiers, the resort is in fact a regular host of many ski and snowboard competitions, there are the three FIS standard runs - for slalom, giant slalom and super G or downhill and off piste powder can be good if you're lucky with powder falls when you visit.

Cross country skiers with about 20 km of marked trails.

Snowboarding in Kopaonik

Snowboarding is popular in the resort with the young crowd that keep the resort buzzing at night taking to the slopes in the day. Although there's no terrain park there are plenty of natural hits in the trees. There can also be good off-piste powder when conditions are right.

Given the high value for board rental, tuition and lift pass with some tour operators offering all inclusive 'learn to board' deals at even better rates, Kopaonik is quite a good choice for trying boarding for the first time without breaking the bank.

Kopaonik Apr├ęs Ski

Well known for its nightlife, all the action centres on the main square, where a circular arcade contains late-night bars including live music venues Prestige and Club Hardy. Other popular spots are the Cafe Andrea and Cafe Royal.

The dolly Bell Bar is a popular meeting place when the lifts close and the Dancing Bar remains open (with dancing as its name suggests) in to the small hours.
