Location

Prokletije

The Prokletije mountains are part of the National park with the same name, also known as the Albanian Alps or Accursed mountains. They are a mountainous area on the western Balkan Peninsula, stretching from northern Albania to Kosovo and eastern Montenegro. The highest peak is Maja Jezerce (2694 m). They are mighty and inaccessible in winter. That is why this is the last piece of the European ski touring wilderness. The terrains are downright fantastic for ski touring. Not to mention the culture, the friendliness of the locals and the excellent cuisine.

Most tours start at an altitude of 1500 m and go up to 2500 m, and the terrain is such that it allows descents on all sides of the mountain. All tours will be carried out from two starting points, depending on the condition of the snow cover. These are the area of Hajla and the Bogičevica mountain. The main destinations of the touring ski week will be Hajla (2403 m) and Tromeđa (2366 m).
