Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, January 13, 2020 – A new snow-making machine has successfully been tested over the past week at the Mount Platak sports and recreation centre and skiing is now possible on part of the run while investments at the centre are continuing, a press conference was told by Primorje-Gorski Kotar County authorities on Monday.

Deputy County Prefect Marko Boras Mandić said that tests of the new system had successfully been conducted over the past week, which means that even though there is no natural snow, skiing has been made possible on part of the ski run.

“So far we have successfully covered 80% of the Radeševo ski run and if these low temperatures continue, in a day or two the entire run will be ready for the first skiers,” he said and added that water from a nearby reservoir is being used to make the snow.

Ljudevit Krpan of the regional office for development, infrastructure and project management announced that investments in the Mount Platak centre would continue.

“This year, the county road management administration will continue road reconstruction on Mount Platak valued at 2.8 million kuna and a further 15 million kuna from the county budget is planned for the construction of a four-seater ski lift,” Krpan said and added that the county was considering the possibility of introducing summer-time activities and that it would apply for EU funds for those projects.
