Skiing in Bosnia and Herzegovina

IF YOU’RE LOOKING for a ski adventure with a twist this winter, it’s worth exploring the slopes in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Balkan country played host to the 1984 Winter Olympics back when it was a part of Yugoslavia. While sports like figure skating and hockey were played in the city of Sarajevo, the mountains hosted alpine skiing, ski jumping, and several other events. Today those mountains offer options for every type of skier, from bunny slopers to free-riders. You’ll find well-groomed ski runs; challenging, off-piste skiing; and a quirky après scene — all at extremely affordable prices. Here’s what you need to know.
