03 February 2019 - The brand new gem of Montenegro ski resorts - Kolašin 1600, located in the southern part of the Bjelasica Mountain, will be officially opened on February 16, said the director of the resort, Saša Jeknić.
With an area of about 27,19 hectares, the new resort base village consists of the central zone with hotels, apartments, reception and public facilities and all the usual ski resort content. Situated, as the name suggests, 1.600 meters above sea level, the 50 million EUR project features 4,6 kilometres of ski slopes.
According to the developers, Kolašin 1600 will operate one 400 seat restaurant for this inaugural season, along with a planned ski school. The 1600 resort will supposedly operate a six-seat lift with a total capacity of 2.800 skiers per hour to deliver skiers from the base lodge to 2.070 meters of altitude.
"What we can safely say now is that the ski centre will officially be opened on February 16. From the moment we open the ski centre, the entire resort will be operational. For now, there is a child ski lift, ski rental, ski school and the restaurant Troglav, "Jeknić told the Mina-business agency.
He said that they are currently in the process of testing a six-seat cable car and that a final test is scheduled for Tuesday. "The necessary documentation and paperwork still awaits the final approval, so we hope that by the end of the next week, it is possible to put the wire in function," Jeknić added.
He reminded that the Kolašin 1600 ski resort started operating on December 29th and that total investment so far amount to 16 million EUR.
