In Albania you will find huge mountains which are probably the last in Europe, which are not yet reached by skiing.
Whole ranges remain a virgin territory for winter activities and skiing adventures. The most appropriate period to organize your ski touring in Albania are in this months: December, January, and February.
In Albania, the mountainners are more admired than understood, as winter activities are still unknown. Skiing is not yet developped, regardless a territory made for that.
During the recent years ski tours are more required than ever. In Albania there are no maps of ski routes, not to speak of the dangers of avalanches and mountain rescue services, therefore each participant that aims to reach the mountains in Albania, must be experienced not only in ski touring, but also should enjoy a flexibility and responsibility for himself.
