Best Time


The best time to visit Kopaonik is the summer, and in particular, the months of July and August, because they are the mildest, although there can be afternoon thunderstorms. Also, since it can get cold at night, it's better to bring a jacket and a sweater even in this period.
Late winter and early spring (February-March) are recommended for a ski holiday, since the days are longer than in December and January.
