It is part of the project for winter complex over the southern neighbourhood of Samokov Boricho. A brand new electricity system was constructed to service the tourism centre. The vertical planning of the site is also completed streets and a parking lot. Three slopes will be constructed in the site, each one over one kilometer long. Snow cannons for artificial snow are planned to be installed in the site for the new winter season 2007/ 2008. A panorama restaurant will be also constructed on the upper station of the lift.
