The writers Andrew Gowans and Martin Hesse wrote an article for the UK Telegraph newspaper last year, of their skiing experience in Montenegro. They wrote: ‘Montenegro is still relatively unknown, despite presenting a wealth of snow sport opportunities 90% of this small country on the Balkan Peninsula is covered by mountainous terrain. It’s the perfect destination for free-skiing mountaineers in search of fresh adventure’. The writers are both very good skiers and toured the surrounding mountains and wrote of Savin Kuk “from the summit we have 1000 m of vertical all to ourselves, perfect blue sky, great views, fresh powder on every turn, an unbeatable feeling! Over the next couple of days we tackle another two routes, the back side of the Savin Kuk mountain (2313m), we get to head down long perfect powder lines. The top section is a wide face, with plenty of space to arc out big turns, before narrowing and winding back down to the resort base. We work the ridge line, which eventually banks round into a shaded valley of glorious snow, scattered with playful free-ride features. With more than 48 peaks to explore, we could easily stay in Durmitor for a full month’. They added ‘Montenegro, a country I’m half hoping will stay off the beaten track – at least until I can come back and ski the three peaks we missed out on!’
