We are joining the forces with Eskimo Cat Ski to set a unique model combining cat skiing with ski touring or splitboarding to be able to reach the best mountains in the area and ski the best lines Norther Macedonia offers.


In 5 days of Freeride Cat/Touring in North Macedonia, we will serve the best off-piste terrain that can be found around Popova Shapka, a ski resort in the Šar Mountains of northern North Macedonia. Every day we will use the cat to get us to remote places and as high as possible to reach summits we will ski with the touring/hiking technique. With the cat being ready at the bottom we make sure to get the best out of the day, and the whole week.


Accommodation is sorted in a hotel with direct access to the ski slopes. During the week there is a half pension, breakfasts and dinners served at the hotel and lunches are gonna be provided by the cat ski company. There is a nice spa at the hotel and a massage possibility.
