FREERIDE TOURING MACEDONIA: 2023-03-06 - 2023-03-10

Freeride Cat & Touring in Macedonia

06.03.2023 - 10.03.2023

  • 100% freeride cat & touring experience without any compromises

  • Full 5 days of cat & touring and riding with Snowbusters guides/coaches

  • Avalanche skills, big mountain riding safety & technique coaching

  • Ski & snowboard Better, Harder & More!

The mountains of North Macedonia are not the first place you would consider a backcountry ski touring or splitboarding expedition. However, an enviable snow record, lack of local freeriders, and limited tourism combined with its stunning food, friendly locals, and low prices make it an adventurous destination you should visit before word gets out.

 

The Snowbusters Macedonia Ski Expedition is a one-week course/trip that explores the best skiing North Macedonia has to offer. We will combine cat skiing with touring to access the best backcountry and remote skinning around Tetovo. It will be a ski road trip that helps you understand (and love!) this interesting country that is a melting pot of different cultures.

 

Touring in North Macedonia is not easy, so you should have previous experience or very good fitness and skiing/riding skills.
