Zabljak – Sixth time in a row, the club of extreme sports “Ravnoteza 7” (BALANCE 7) together with the NGO “Dormitores” will organize on the 9th, 10th, and 11th of March the project “Balance 7 T-Mobile freestyle snowboarding cup” with which they are popularizing Durmitor as a tourist destination, freestyle discipline of snowboarding, but they also symbolically mark the end of the winter season.
The president of the “Balance 7” and “Dormitores”, Goran Goga Nikitovic” claims that this time too that will be a successful manifestation mix of sport and fun, which will gather over 50 best snowboarders from Macedonia, Slovenia, Serbia, and Montenegro as well as the great number of guests who will come to see the event.
– In the past 5 years we have dealt with many problems, which most often were not connected with us, so we are forced to change the concept of this year’s competition. With the existing infrastructure of ski path Savin kuk it is impossible to make the optimal conditions for competition in boarder cross, which we made all this years, so the continuation of that kind of activities would mean a step back – said the organizers.
On the ski path in Stuoc in the first two days the qualifications and official races in big air contest will be held, that is in acrobat jumps and slope style – driving of the snowboard down the specially prepared polygon with smaller ski jumps. On the last day of the manifestation is the back country free ride, the joined ride of all contestants, which starts from the peak of Savin kuk, but it will not be ridden down the usual path, but at a suitable place it separated to the left side, towards Vucja jama (WOOLF’s PIT), and firther towards Crno jezero (BLACK LAKE).
The rewards will be given in front of “Dvoriste” (YARD), where the parties and concerts will be organized. If there is enough snow say the organizer, it is possible that the contest will be moved from Stuoci to Javorovaca. The patron of the project is the Ministry of tourism, and the general sponsors are T-Mobile, company Craft food with the brand “Milka M-Joy”, Tourist organization of Montenegro, the importer and distributor of “Hammer” snowboards “Fosna” from Belgrade and the enterprise “Drum and putokazi” (THE ROAD AND THE SIGNES) from Zabljak.
