Awesome times on and off the board

03/05/2021
This was my first experience of all free ride boarding trip. I've had some days in the Alps, but not focusing on free ride then.
Now what can I say about Macedonia - not much, really. As the Covid19 situation was blooming, my stay in March consisted of either staying in the hotel or enjoying the beautiful mountains. And what glorious times in the mountains we had!
Third week of March is considered the tail end of the high season there. Upon arrival last weeks had been quite windy and low on fresh snowfall, but along the week conditions improved and on the final couple of days there was a lot of new snow coming down. Nevertheless, from first day on riding was a lot of fun and the guides were knowledgeable to find the right spots to ride considering the conditions - with stronger winds and fog we kept more to the treeline, when ever it cleared up, we head for the top.
Not really sure if it's this good in normal travel conditions, but right now with the restrictions in place, we basically had all the mountains all for ourselves. And we really took advantage of it.
So on the mountains - guides were great, pick-up times were fast and we really put in well above 5-10 runs a day they mention on the website. Nice lunchbreaks in the mountains, depending on the weather in a cabin or out in the open.
Hotel - food was great and plentiful, room itself was good enough for what it's for - getting you from the evening to the morning so you could get back up that mountain again.
Overall - best snowboard trip I've ever had!

We spent an amazing week in Popova Chapka with Eskimo Freeride crew. Warm people, cold and deep snow, steep slopes, magic forests, extreme conditions as well as sunny days ... We had all and in brief: a lot of FUN !! Thank you to our guide Nino, Zoki "les bon tuyaux" , Pierre the young French traveler and all the people who made us happy!

Perfect Freeride during Corona

22/01/2021
yes, there are some options
Friendly & easy trip organisation with ESKIMO. Nice driving from Germany by car to Macedonia without any problems or limitations. Good conditioned motorways with nice pitstop infrastructure all the way down. We had luck with snow conditions, our guide and the CAT Driver. Due to Corona Panic we were a small group,could move quick and do a lot of runs. No waiting, no discussion, same level of experienced riding. Good safety gear and good decision taking of guide /cat Driver-> safety first.
Some days weather was foggy and warm on the southside, but the operators know the terrain and conditions very well, so we found a lot of nice conditions on the northside with tree runs and some steeper lines. If conditions are great with good sight you can ride limitless in any level of difficulty.
All in all a great week with happy & helpful people that enjoy life. Don´t expect Austrian / Swiss standards, but adventure and spirit of Alpine sports without all this fancy shit that nobody needs anyway.

Fun and hard work!

Second time with Eskimo Freeride in Macedonia. This time with a group of the age of 50+. Even when your are alone on the ski, it's important to be with people you can connect to and who has fairly same skiing abilities. It gives better time in the white and when sitting in the cats.

Many improvements such as the cats has been equipped with fur on the seats. 

Amazing

Amazing

This was fantastic. When arriving to Popova Sapka it was disappointing that there was not so much snow, but guides now exactly where to take us to have fun and where is a lot of snow. Having lunch outside or in shepherds huts was nice element to this . And food at hotel that was so tasty. This holiday surpassed my expectations.

Fantastic and unique skiing experience in a very special environment. The friendly Eskimo team is very professional and service minded, good on logistics and with a sincere focus on safety on the mountain. A good stay at the hotel with a luxury spa. Being so far down in the south of Europe there is a risk for the snow conditions.

I love Eskimo Freeride because of perfect mountain Sharplanina with very good terrain for freeride. Also accommodation and evenings are very good, because of special food, nice places, special atmosphere. We are coming back every year, which is the best review what I can give! :) Sometimes it a little bit tricky with wheater / snow conditions, but it is almost in any freeride destination. We also like staff of Eskimo. Generally also very good "value for money"

We got there Jan 1, 2020. It was pre-season so there was not much snow; the ski resort was even closed. Eskimo Freeride crew was able to take us to nearby mountains that had enough powder to have a blast! My wife, 13-year old son and I had a wonderful time along in powder. Tom (the owner), his family and Filip - the guide - were amazing in making us feel like at home and enjoy our time there. The food at the hotel was delicious. We will definitely go back!
