Cat & Heliski in North Macedonia

If you are already familiar with Catski, either with us in Dragobrat or somewhere else in the world, you certainly not need any further introduction to this concept. If you are new to Catski, this could be a good time to try out. Catski is all about taking you to those untouched places in a convenient way, so you get as much untracked terrain as possible during a week and much more than you can imagine compared to a resort stay. The Cat is fairly stable and can take you out there in all kinds of snow. Yes, the helicopter will do it faster, but if you are not ready yet to extend the budget, then Cat skiing would be a very good choice. Heli is also a bit more sensitive to the weather.

If you consider having a taste of both worlds, Catski & Heli, and are willing to spend a little more, but not ready for committing to a whole Heliweek program, then perhaps the mixed program is something for you. Something for your bucket list.

North Macedonia is part of the Balkan region and the Catskiing activity here is not totally unknown. What new is that we now can offer you an integrated Heli experience in North Macedonia. If you are not yet ready for this, the Catskiing is still a great experience at an affordable price compared to many operators around the world.

We will be located in Popova Shapka, a convenient 1hr+ drive from Skopje Airport. Popova Shapka is located in 1700m at the Sharr Mountains. Here you will, accompanied with Cat or Heli, have access to a big vaste area with some of the highest peaks in North Macedonia bordering up to Kosovo & Albania.

There are 6-day cat skiing included in the price. In case it is impossible to come up with Cat-skis, we will do alternatives such as Touring. We have limited access to touring equipment/Splitboard, so please give us a note in advance if you wish to rent Touring/splitboard gear. That said, it is very rare that we must cancel the catski here, because the logistic aloud us to just stay lower in the trees in case of bad weather.
The ski season typically starts in early December and ends in mid-April.
The skiing/boarding typically takes place 1700 to 2500 meters above sea level. We plan for weather and wind conditions, where we get the best snow and visibility, as well as safety.

Macedonia is part of the Balkan region and the Catskiing activity here is established. We are having access to a greater area of the Sharr mountains in the Carpathians. The terrain is varied with high alpine above treeline, with open bowls to smaller chutes and the down to the pine trees with good space between to do your treeskiing.

VANSKELIGHETSGRAD

The terrain in North Macedonia fits well for those who want to learn to master the off-piste and for those who just want to run powder all week. It is a mixture of forest skiing and open terrain.

If you will participate in the heliski option you will of course have the opportunity to get to mountains that is not accessible for the Cat. You will then get access to steeper terrain. Skills will be from intermediate to advanced.
