    My girlfriend and I are going on the 11th! I can hardy wait! I have been skiing once and that was about 8 years ago! My GF has never skied before!

    We are both going to the ski school, so hopefully there will be a few of the people from this forum in the ski school!

    I just hope that there is still plenty of the white stuff left by the time we get there!!

    See you all on slopes soon! (though i may be the one on my arse sliding down the piste!)

    Hi OutsideEdge - we're also going on the 11th! You're the only person (other than us of course) on this forum who've said they are going then - which I'm surprised at, as it's half term so I'd have expected loads of families to be going...

    We'll be at the ski school too. This will be my 5th time going, but I'm not that good still! Went for the first time when I was 19, then a couple of times in my late 20's - but then last year we went to Slovenia, around 8 years after my last skiing, so I was a bit rusty. I'm not particularly fit, so I'm a bit worried about my stamina and keeping up in the group. My husband James has been 2 or 3 times more than me. Ben (aged 7.5) really enjoyed it last year in Slovenia (although he couldn't grasp how to stop!), so he is keen to do it again.

    We're staying in the Konaci apartments, with the half board option.

    Snow forecasts look quite good - there's a 90% probability the day after tomorrow, so hopefully will be good - there's a lot more snow there than people had who went in early January. There seems to be quite a lot of fog though which could make finding our way around a bit tricky.

    Will probably bump into you at ski school, if not before!

    There is only one flight per week, so yes, you will all be on the same flight.

    Wish i was going back out for another week.

    The only other flight is a Saturday one from Heathrow into Belgrade (which is then a FIVE hr coach transfer!). This is the one Balkan Holidays use.

    Helen,
    I'm confused (it's not difficult!), you mention half term, are you going out on the 11th Feb or the 11th March?
    We're going out on the 11th March and staying at the Grand. One of the party will be in the beginners class at ski school. The rest of us are intermediates and are still trying to decide whether to go to ski school or whether to book private lessons.
    Does anyone have any experience of the intermediate classes in the ski school at Kop?

    We were there two weeks ago and two of our friends went into the intermediatte classes and thouroughly enjoyed it.

    The enjoyed if from the point of view that the instructor not only improved thier ski technique, but also showed them slopes they may not have ventured to, aswell as passing on stories of serbian life and giving geography lessons on the surrounding area.

    Also, if you are hiring equipment, when pre-booking together with ski school you get your lift pass free. So it only works out about an extra tenner for ski school.

    Thanks no_snow, that's really useful! I've had mixed experiences with ski lessons over the past few years, the best ones were like you describe where the instructor took us to places we'd never have discovered (or never dared to attempt!)

    4 weeks 6 days and counting!

    No probs.

    As they prebooked the equipment and ski school for £133(ish) and got the lift pass free (v's £125 for a complete learnt to ski package) they felt that they would do the first day off ski school and see how it went. As they enjoyed it that much, they did stay on for the whole six days.

    Was that with Crystal?
    Sadly I have my own equipment but the rest of the party will be able to benefit from the free lift pass.
    Yes.

    FREE lift pass when Skis or Snowboard, boots and tuition are all individually pre-booked.
    I think Thomson have the same deal.

    You mentioned private lessons - these are also very reasonable and easily bookable in the resort. I had them as 4 hours tuition per day would have been too much for me and I was even able to discuss with my instructor after each lesson what I would book for the following day! The cost was 21 Euros an hour for one person and 30 Euros an hour for 3 people.

    Thanks Treble
    We are thinking of taking private lessons. 4 hours a day just seems too long. I will try to contact Dragisa from skikop.com, somebody recomended him on this site. Can you remember which ski school did you use?
