Kopaonik is the premier ski resort in Serbia. And I got the premier weather arriving there, in heavy snowfall.
I had fun cruising the powdery closed runs and thick forests.
My only regret is not visiting Kosovo on the same trip...
There was also an abandoned ski lodge at the top of the mountain:
To get to Kopaonik, one has to drive. It was fun watching the various cars in the heavy snowfall.

Most years, the skiing at Arapahoe Basin, Colorado just starts to get really fun in the end of May.
