TGR Enjoys the Best Snow Croatia has Seen in 50 Years

Next Up

By the beginning of February we were getting reports of heavy storming in Europe. On February 6th the TGR crew headed off for the Old Country. Our crew consisted of athletes Dash Longe and Dylan Hood, Cinematographers Steve Jones and Matt Herriger, and photographer Chris Bezamat. Our first stop was Croatia. We were greeted at the airport by local rippers Sebastian Fleiss and Opec One. These guys had everything dialed and treated us to a trip that you could only get through true insiders knowledge. We headed up to the resort of Bejolasica. We arrived at night and it was dumping profusely the whole way up. The snow banks were high and the excitement continued to escalate as we drove further up into the mountains. The next day was completely blanketed in fresh snow with not a track to be seen. It was the best snow in 50 years and there was one car in the parking lot when we pulled in at 9am.

After 8 days of nonstop snow and unbelievable tree skiing, Seb took us to the coast and out to his island where he spearfishes in the summertime. Ancient streets, stone buildings, medieval watchtowers, and copius seafood filled the next 4 days. Croatia is a magic place.
