This is the list of the best ski resorts in Montenegro

Nicknamed “Wild beauty,” Montenegro is home to breathtaking landscapes such as the exotic Ada Bojana, the picturesque Adriatic coastline, and the fjord-like Bay of Kotor, among others. And whereas the country is a revered summer destination, winter in Montenegro flies under the radar. So it begs the question; Is Montenegro good for skiing?

The ski trails in Montenegro might not be as captivating as Gstaad or Courchevel, but they are a great alternative if you want a pocket-friendly price point and sweeping scenery. The Montenegrin mountains are where all winter sports occur, particularly Kolašin and Žabljak. Here are the four best ski resorts in Montenegro.
