170,000 Croatians plan to spend their new year on the ski slopes

By  Dec 23, 2017

After celebrating New Year’s Eve at home, many Croats will pack their bags and set off skiing for their winter vacation.

According to estimates of domestic travel agencies, at the beginning of 2018, around 170,000 citizens are planning to spend their vacation at ski resorts in the Alps, especially during school winter break.

Croats mostly opt for ski resorts such as Nassfeld and Kronplatz as well as Zermatt, St Moritz, La Villa, Corvara, Saalbach-Hinterglemm and Living. The price of the package depends on the type and quality of accommodation, the destination and the price of ski pass, which in some ski resorts amounts to 59 Euros per day, whilst in some smaller resorts the price reaches 35 Euros.

The skiing package price for a four-member family is on the average between 12,000 and 14,000 Kunas, thus, around 70 to 80 percent of Croatian holiday makers will pay their winter vacation in instalments.
