The Plato freeride Map

From the top station of Plato and Banderitsa 2 ski lifts, start down the Plato 1 piste. Branch right off this after c. 50 metres and ski between small pine bushes before traversing back left onto the piste. Beware not to go much to the skier's right, because otherwise you'll need to walk back to the resort. This is a good run in case of big avalanche danger.
