The Brezovica ski resort area is ideally situated on north and northwest facing slopes of Kosovo's Sharr National Park. The ridge line spans 39,000 hectares of high alpine mountain terrain and forests, with a highly diverse and abundant offering of flora and fauna. Located within 90 minutes of two international airports, the Brezovica Resort area represents one of the last remaining under-developed ski resort areas in Southeast Europe.
The current ski resort area was originally established in 1954 in Shtërpcë/Strpce municipality, just south of the town of Shtërpcë/Strpce. In 1979 the first ski lift was installed at the resort. Although Brezovica has a prestigious past, having served as an alternative site for downhill skiing events of the 1984 Sarajevo Winter Olympic Games and having hosted a number of International Ski Federation events in the 1980's and 1990's, the current resort has not received meaningful investment for more than two decades. Today, with responsible investment, development, and operation, it offers tremendous potential for value-oriented tourism.
The ridge line's terrain offers an unmatched opportunity in the region for the development of an all year mountain resort. In the winter, snow falls from mid-November through May, with an average of 128 skiable days. Summer eco-tourism opportunities include hiking, mountain biking, golf, and other outdoor recreational activities.
