The border crossings of northern Croatia are extremely busy as thousands of Croatians make their way to the ski slopes of Europe.
Skiing package vacations are almost sold out in all the major travel agencies in Croatia with Austria and Italy the two most popular winter destinations followed by France. Whilst for shorter weekend breaks Slovenia and Herzegovina are also popular.
Estimates suggest that up to 200,000 Croatians will hit the slopes this winter with family holidays the most sought after.
Atlas Travel Agency have reported that demanded is up by 10 percent on last year and that they have sold all their winter ski packages for this year. Whilst the Kompas Agency has reported a huge 20 percent increase in demand over last winter. With the snow in Europe clean and fresh and temperatures just perfect for skiing the ski season could well last into early Spring.
