Will Sljeme Ski Resort be Getting a New Look?

Daniela Rogulj

A big makeover for Sljeme is on the horizon…

A new upper station for cable cars (ski lifts), a sports hall in Tomislavov, a heliport to pick up injured skiers, a lookout and restaurant in the TV tower, a trail for summer sledding, an adventure park….and that’s not all. A new artificial lake for the added possibility of snowmaking, an expansion of the ski slopes, and reconstruction of the ski lifts will completely transform the look of Sljeme as we currently know it, reports Vecernji List on February 1, 2017. 

The “Peak zone” and “Ski complex”, which make up a total area of 115 hectares, are the first areas for urban planning as they are the highest for national importance so far. Their main goal, explains the Ministry of Construction and Physical Planning (MoCPP), is to increase the content of Sljeme, and thus and the number of visitors to the top of the mountain. What may change, according to the current urban planning, is that existing buildings will be redeveloped so that, for example, the current upper station for the ski lifts will serve as an information and educational point.

“This will give the possibility of office or administrative space,” says the Ministry, who added that there are also plans to reconstruct the TV tower so that it will house a new catering facility at the top of the lookout point. The lookout Vidikovac will also be madeover with an update to the existing restaurant, and the underground floor will accommodate ski clubs, storage equipment for the ski slopes and ambulance and duty service HGSS.

In addition to winter, special attention will be paid for the summer amenities – and it looks as though Tomislavov hotel will accommodate an adrenaline park, and the current “Red Slope” will be used for summer sledding in the warmer months, adds the Ministry. 

Furthermore, the upper station of the Red downhill slope will be repaired, while the upper station of the Green slope will plan on getting new facilities. On the location Brijest there are plans to build a resort and “reconstruction to improve the functionality and technical conditions” is predicted for Sljeme Lugarić and the communal base for Horticulture. The Church of Our Lady Queen of Croats, the building of the Parish Office, the apartment house “Snow Queen”, the Prekratić house, MUP transmitter, Zeljeznicar and resort Grofica will all also be repaired.
