Unusually Warm Winter

With much anticipation, I was disheartened earlier this week to learn that the unusually warm winter in Kosovo has resulted in a shortage of snow and the lifts at Brezovica are still not running at this time!  Likewise neighboring Macedonia does not have any snow at the Mavrovo resort so it looks like this year’s snowboarding season will have to be spent elsewhere which is disappointing because I really enjoyed spending my winter in Kosovo last year :) 

While there has been a good amount of snow on a few different occassions, the yo-yoing temperatures have resulted in all the snow melting and just a thin covering of snow at the base of the moutain in Brezovica :(
