Biokovo – The first Dalmatian ski resort

Biokovo – The first Dalmatian ski resort
The high northern slopes of Biokovo, the mountain range which divides the Adriatic from Dalmatinska Zagora (Dalmatian hinterland), might be the future location of the first Dalmatian ski resort. This project will be helped by ‘natural infrastructure’ which allows the snow to remain in certain northern mountain zones above one thousand meters even up to the month of June. There is also the closeness of the motorway and the tunnel which has reduced the distance between the Imotski region and the coast to just a few minutes drive, and the plan is to build a cable car which would connect the highest peak Sveti Jure (1762 m) with several Biokovo locations.

There are several convenient locations on Biokovo where a recreational ski center could be built, but so far it is most likely to be on Kaoci, for which interested investors are already seeking concessions.

The construction of a ski-recreation center would mean a year-round tourism offer, where the guests of Makarska Riviera would have a chance to enjoy skiing and swimming in the sea, in the same day. Guests could enjoy mountain walks on groomed trails, athletes would be offered training grounds, and it is planned that the old road built during Napoleonic time should be expanded into a biking trail.

Biokovo is a mountain that rises from the sea offering stunning panoramic views of the Makarska Riviera and Zabiokovlje (hinterland) from its peaks and lookouts. Apart from its location, Biokovo is unique in geomorphology and biodiversity, and was therefore declared a nature park in 1981.
