Slovenia’s most famous mountain resort,  Kranjska Gora, boasts this title, partly due to hosting annual ski jumping at the world’s highest jumping centre at Planica, and World Cup skiing (Pokal Vitranc) on the Podkoren slopes. Skiing here is mostly orientated towards families and beginners, with easy access to high quality nursery slopes and blue runs a couple of minutes walk from the centre of the resort. A chairlift takes you over the mountain to the long, steep Podkoren pistes, location for World Cups races which appeal to intermediate and advanced skiers. With a relatively low elevation its worth checking the snow reports first, although artificial snowmaking means almost guaranteed snow between late December and late March. Kranjska Gora resort itself centres around a square with an old church. It’s a pretty alpine village with a wide range of restaurants, shops, bars, spas, pools and other amenities in easy reach. Stunning Lake Jasna is a short 10 minute walk from the town centre. A short drive away is the village of Ratece, site of a picturesque cross-country skiing centre as well as the famous world-cup Planica ski jumping centre. With access to 8 resorts in Slovenia, Austria and Italy in under an hour, Kranjska Gora is a great base for exploring the region and a great location for a Slovenian skiing holiday.
