13 February 2019 - The Secretariat for Culture and Sports of the Capital City and the Sport for All Association from Podgorica are organising a sports and recreational event Citizens of Podgorica on the Snow. The event begins on Saturday, February 16, when the official opening of the ski resort Kolašin 1600 on Mount Bjelasica is planned. Ski pass for all resort visitors will be free on that day.
Although earlier this winter the Capital of Montenegro welcomed white snowflakes, the locals from Podgorica still have to turn to ski resorts in the cities of the North to enjoy an adventure on the snow. The event Citizens of Podgorica on the Snow provides people from Podgorica a favourable opportunity to visit ski resort Kolašin 1600 and experience the winter magic.
The Association Sport for All is planning for the manifestation to last through February and March, every Saturday, depending on weather conditions. For this weekend, they provided free transportation by bus from Podgorica to ski resort Kolašin 1600 on Bjelasica and back, while the ski pass will be free because of the official opening of the resort. In the future weekends, the transport will still be free, and the locals from Podgorica will enjoy discounts related to ski pass and equipment rental.

The local association includes over twenty sports associations from the territory of the Capital City and the city municipalities of Tuzi and Golubovci.
