Stara Planina, Feb.05,2010 (Serbia Today)-When the snow cover gets its role in the world of weather magic, Eastern Serbia has a good, high quality and very interesting offer on the Stara planina. Paths constructed by European standards, ski lifts and satisfactory accommodation capacity certainly contribute to its popularity.
Children are especially happy going to the Stara planina. A reason for that is a development camp for small skiers named “Snow Kids”, which is under the auspices of the Ministry of Youth and Sports from Serbia. The first group of children participated in a “Snow kids” camp last December.
These days, about fifty small skiers learn their first ski steps with a help of the best trainers of the Ski Federation of Serbia. They are the second group in this camp and they are aged from 7 to 10 years old. The third group of small skiers will come to the mountain in March.
Instructors who work with children on this mountain say that the idea of a ski camp for children is not just to learn to ski but one day maybe they will become the competitors who will represent Serbia on international competitions.
Last weekend, the paths on Stara planina were full of skiers. The interest for this winter sport in the Eastern Serbia is growing. About 250 children are scheduled to pass through the camp.
