    Skiing on Medvednica

    by tomeek Updated Dec 26, 2007

    Up there, on our mountain Medvednica, you can enjoy skiing or snowboarding, in Winter, of course. In other times of the year where there is no snow, you can enjoy hiking or simply, breath the fresh mountain air. The tracks are not long but they are well kept and skii elevators are usualy running regulary from 9am to 4pm. There are several types of tickets, half-day, day, week or others. The daily skii pass is now 150kn.

    Unfortunately the legendary cable car that used to run for more than 50 years taking people up and down Medvednica, is malfuntioned seriously and no longer operating. Until the new one takes its place, you are left only with your own transportation,even if the public buses are available. However, they are not always convenient. My favorite way is of course on foot using one of the many hiking paths but with skii equipment, you don't have much choice.

    IVICA KOSTELIC

    by canaglic Updated Mar 12, 2003

    Ivica Kostelic is a skier who has long been in the shadow of his younger and excellent sister Janica, but her results are not, and can not be something to judge him by.
