Ski & Snowboard Macedonia

Skiing and snowboarding in Macedonia is hinged on a couple of reasonable ski resorts, but mainly on backcountry powder and Europe's longest running and best cat skiing operation, Eskimo Freeride.

Ski Resorts in Macedonia

Ski resorts in Macedonia are not the uber modern monstrosities of Austria, France, Italy or Switzerland. In reality there are only two of any note; one of which is worth visiting. Popova Sapka (translates into 'the Priest's Hat - long story!) is Macedonia's premier ski resort. It has a skiable vertical of over 800m and expansive off piste and backcountry terrain.

Operating out of the Popova Sapka ski resort, Eskimo Freeride cat skiing provides backcountry powder skiing for all levels of skier & snowboarding from intermediate to expert. Eskimo Freeride especially welcomes families and provides child friendly cat ski options that are unique in the world.

The other Macedonian ski resort to consider is Mavrovo Zare-Lazarevski.

Where is Macedonia?

Macedonia (also known as FYROM - former Yugoslavia Republic of Macedonia) is in the Balkans, bordered by Serbia, Kosovo, Bulgaria, Greece & Albania. It is approximately 950km south of Vienna in Austria.

The main gateway airport is the magnificently named Alexander the Great Airport near Skopje. Daily flights from Vienna to Skopje take around 1hr35min. Regular direct flights also originate in Zurich. Flights are relatively cheap. Search for a great deal on a flight to Skopje here.

Skopje Hotels & Accommodation

The capital, Skopje, is a wonderful city to spend a few days before or after your ski adventure in Macedonia. Overlooked by the walls and turrets of the Skopje Fortress (or Kale), the city centre has several excellent (and unusual!) hotel options. A night in the Hotel Senigallia on the Vardar River in the centre of Skopje is a fun way to experience the city.

Reasons to Ski & Snowboard Macedonia

Macedonia is still wild at heart. How many places in Europe still have bears, wolves, lynx and ................ cat skiing. Macedonia gets great snow, is light on the hip pocket (cheap!) and still has a sense of adventure when travelling there. For something completely different, ski and snowboard Macedonia.


The Powderhounds will review skiing in Macedonia in 2019. More information is coming soon. Stay tuned for our photos & insights.
