First heard about it years ago from some old mountaineering guys, that they were there in the 70's and that the whole region of Prokletije has one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. Then was told from this old guy who was stationed there in old Yugoslavia army, about how they were struck with snow so deep that even you couldn't go with skis on. By the time I was already running around backcountry of Swiss, Austrian, Italian, French, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Macedonia, to Japan, Georgia, Turkey, Alaska and all of the world gems. Thought, I saw it all..

When I was invited by friends to come and "see" the best kept secret in Europe I was like, yeah, already seen stuff but let's go. Little did I know, that literally you have the whole freaking mountain range for you and couple of lucky ones. In this real backcountry, with the first inhabited place only three hours by off road trucks, sleds and cats at the starting alt. of 1500m and the whole range peaking to about almost 3000 just for 8 of us, still couldn’t belive it.

Why its soooo good. High altitude provides cold, its close to Adriatic see so you get humidity, and storms come from south, east and northwest, so you get scenario with 2 days of mega puking dump, and 5 days of sun  I know, I couldn’t belive it too. It’s kinda coastal AK style snow, so it becomes compact and stabile very quickly.

Terrain :) So from wide and open slopes to steep rocky terrain to forest creek runs between God planted trees with enough space to roam around without planning to much and just soak in all of the exhilaration. Oh, these millions of kicker gullies, natural halfpipes and all these tiny bumps that can launch you in to bliss. It’s awesome to advance your riding real easy, from super small, medium and large launching pads of fully natural terrain. Is it cliffs, rocks, deadtrees or windblown snow, it creates pow pow heaven playground.

The crew is amazing with real exp. veterans of the game, Seb and Hamdi, ski and snowboard gurus. These guys know whats’up, they know what they’re runnin’, and do it with ease and style. Chilled atmosphere, no rush to nowhere, and they’re right, they caught the place for themselves, and share it with few alikes, that have enough soul to go for it.

Avy equipment is ON site, knowledge and all security is priority for these man, so it’s a standard operation with lead and tail guide, so you’ll be safe with all of the top gear they provide. Water, beers, sandwiches are in the cat all the time, so even if you get hungry on the hill you’re set.

Accommodation is typical, cosy fireplace, was amazed that everything is super eco-friendly, with everything running on solar panels, and food is strictly domestic locally grown, cuz’ first supermarket is helicopter away. Food, beer, sweets everything is there. So this off-grid cosy palace is only for you and your friends, and the window points to the small Gjeravica peak and the natural snowpark itself, so you can sip cold one and plan your line :)

All the other stuff can be found in the woods, if you feel me :) Well dunno what the hell I was waiting for all these years, but one thing for sure, you’ll see my ass there every season – it’s just that amazing!
