A dry slope at the Kopaonik ski resort in Serbia will allow the ski area to stay open 365 days a year. The 800 metre slope has a vertical drop of 116 metres and is believed to be the longest ever built in Europe. The slope is made of a material known as Neveplast.
“Neveplast was born with the intent to give everyone the possibility to ski year round, close to urban centers and at very low cost. Neveplast slopes realized in cities and on the mountain are considered gyms for skiers where novices can learn to ski and snowboard, enthusiasts can practice their preferred discipline, and where the competitive athlete can train exactly like they do on snow.
Neveplast NP30, the forebear of all the Neveplast products, is an innovative synthetic mantle that permits skiing simulating real snow conditions.”
Located in the National natural park of Kopaonik, the ski resort’s new run is served by 4 seats chairlift.
