Progress on Mount Kozuf, a new ski resort for Macedonia, close to the Greek border, is moving forward. Some sample properties have been built and the road to the centre is currently being asphalted.
The centre is 70 kilometres (43 miles) from Thessaloniki, the port that is Greece's second-largest city. Currently, many skiers in the region travel to neighbouring Bulgaria to ski and where ski resort development is booming.
Macedonia currently has five ski areas, Greece more than a dozen. The southern half of the historic geographic region that was Macedonia remains in Greece causing some political tensions.
The all-inclusive resort complex is located on Kozuf Mountain, situated at a level of 1500 m to 1700 m above sea level based on the Momina Cuka locality, with the mountain peak of Zelenbreg at 2208 meters and 100 meters from the Greek Border.
