Like other three mountains, Igman, Bjelašnica and Trebević, Jahorina is a popular destination for a variety of outdoor sports and activities. During the 1984 Winter Olympics, Jahorina was the site of the women's alpine skiing events. The men's alpine events were held at Bjelašnica. Today, Jahorina remains a popular destination for skiing, hiking, and sledding, with over 40 km of ski trails and modern facilities.
Part of Mount Jahorina, including areas near the resorts, still contain land mines. In October 2011 a Slovenian paraglider was critically injured on Mount Jahorina when he landed in a minefield.
