Croatian capital Zagreb can boast with having a ski resort situated only about twenty minutes car ride from the city center. On the ski slopes of mountain Medvednica the best Croatian skiers, Janica and Ivica Kostelic, made their first ski steps on their journey to ski fame. Ski slopes and ski lifts are situated on the peak ridge and on the north slopes of mountain Medvednica. The ski slopes begin almost on the very top of the mountain and continue to spread gently across the peak ridge on the Bijela livada (White Meadow) towards east and steeply towars north on the Crveni spust (Red Slope). Next to the Crveni spust (Red Slope) on the north side of the ridge there are also Zeleni (Green), Plavi (Blue) and Bijeli (White) Slopes. Total length of the slopes is about 4.000 meters.
