VERSHYNA KARPAT (The Peak of the Carpathians)

This ski complex is located on Stih mountain (1707 m high). There are 3 ski lifts: the double chairlift, a drag lift and a rope tow.

The most trails there are red (intermediate level), they are quite wide, long and straight. There are some hilly parts. After using the chairlift you can go down the easier slope which is also more straight and goes along the lower area between two drag lifts. In another way, you can go down closer to the forest area, between the trees. These easier slopes are also available from the upper station of the drag lift.
In general, this part of the hill would be interesting as for beginners so for professional skiers, though it would also be convenient for those who only learns how to ski or snowboard.
You can get to the lower stations of Vershyna Karpat complex by going down from the side of Drahobrat complex. And from the upper station of the chairlift you can go down to the slopes of Karpatska Chayka and Oaza.
