From this year onwards the winter season on Bjelašnica and Igman mountains will last 120 days minimum


The Minister of Economy of Canton Sarajevo Muharem Šabić and the Mayor of Trnovo Municipality Ibro Berilo signed the Agreement on co-financing the “Regional water supply system Hojta – Bjelašnica – Igman”. The water supply system is the most complex water supply system in the last 20 years and the competent ministry co-financed the project with 2,800.000 BAM.

This is one of the most important projects of the Government of Canton Sarajevo and the first major investment in Bjelašnica after the Olympic Games in 1984. Even then, the problem of artificial snow making system was not solved. From this season onwards all the winter sports fans will be able to enjoy skiing for 120 days minimum”, said Minister Šabić.

According to him, with the installation of six and four seat transportation a greater speed of transport will be provided, which will definitely improve the winter tourist season.

Minister Šabić announced that the acceptance is planed for the midlle of october and the competent ministry is planning to secure the development of summer tourism which is quite popular in the modern world.

As Mayor Berilo explained, the project will secure water supply within the area of Bjelašnica to the border of Ilidža and Hadžići municipalities and in the next year we planned works in the Pandurica and Siljka, Čaklji, Donje and Gornje Grkarice and Veliko Polje areas.

Now we can guarantee that we will have enough water for the artificial snow making system from the top of Bjelašnica mountain to Babin Dol and Donja kolijevka”, said Mayor Berilo and he also said that from the next year it will not be necessary to pump the water from the Bjelašnica and Igman area.

The Consortium consisted of companies Ame d.o.o., Hidrom and MGBH have been selected for the conduction of works on Regional water supply system Hojta – Bjelašnica – Igman.
