A new playground!

Yesterday we enjoyed exploring a “new” playground - Ski centar "Raduša". We'd been intrigued by the pictures on Facebook and the reality didn't disappoint. I had been looking for one sunny day of snowboarding this season and we finally got it! As ski centres in Bosnia and Herzegovina go this must be one of the newest; according to an article on a Croatian ski website it's only in its third year of operating. From our perspective it makes an appealing alternative to some of the more established resorts.

I know people look for different things in their winter sports experiences. For some the après-ski activities are more important than the slopes. At Raduša the après-ski activity is driving home! It's not a resort in that sense, but what it offers is access to unspoilt countryside. There's no loud music, no corporate sponsorship banners, just a mountain top covered with snow, a few well placed lifts and some nicely groomed runs. All that and a decent restaurant at the bottom and a cafe with panoramic views at the top. A powder day here has to be a priority for next season!
