What to expect from your Slovenian Skiing Holiday

 

Great value
Skiing, ski tuition, accommodation and food and drink are all great value in Slovenian ski areas – meaning that a well planned Slovenian skiing holiday can cost a fraction of the equivalent holiday in better known resorts in other parts of the Alps. 

 

Great beginner and family friendly skiing
Most of Slovenia’s resorts are best oriented towards families and beginner to intermediate level skiers, with plenty of easy to access nursery and blue pistes, excellent English speaking ski schools, crèches & resort facilities such as restaurants, shops, pools and spas. 

 

Piste accessibility
Slovenia’s resorts are generally easy and quick to get to – mostly within 1 hr drive of an international airport and 30 mins drive to the nearest motorway junction. Krvavec, one of Slovenia’s best all round resorts, is the closest ski resort to an international airport in the world with lifts just 15 minutes drive from the arrivals terminal.  Meanwhile, the pistes at Mariborsko Pohorje, Slovenia’s biggest resort by kms of pistes, can be reached from the centre of Maribor, Slovenia’s second city, by a city bus in 15 minutes.               

 

Authentic alpine culture
Slovenia is very much part of the Alps and the culture and heritage you will find on a Slovenian skiing holiday is unmistakenly alpine with a uniquely Slovenian twist. Skiing and Winter sports are hugely important to Slovenians with the country hosting various annual World Cup ski events, not to mention ski jumping events at the world’s highest ski jumps at Planica near Kranjska Gora.  Skiing in Slovenia dates back to 1689 when the famous Slovenian writer Valvasor recorded the use of skis on the Bloke plateau close to Ljubljana.

 

Uncrowded pistes
Like ski resorts anywhere in the world, peak times such as school holidays and weekends do get busy at Slovenian resorts. However, outside of these times pistes in Slovenian resorts are often relatively quiet with more space on the pistes and shorter lift queues than many resorts in better known destinations. Skiing on a weekday during school term time, you can often find that have the pistes to yourself!  

 

Advanced skiing, off-piste and ski touring
Slovenian resorts are relatively small by international standards and historically have lacked the piste length and vertical descent to keep advanced skiers entertained for long periods. However the offering for advanced skiers is improving rapidly: Lift infrastructure is greatly improved in recent years at Bohinj-Vogel & Krvavec. Improvements have also been made at Kranjska Gora and many of the resorts nearby meaning it is a great base for exploring the region with 8 resorts in 3 countries accessible in under an hour’s drive. At Bovec-Kanin a connection with the Italian resort Sella Nevea in 2009-10 has doubled the size of the ski area, with most pistes oriented towards intermediate and advanced skiers and huge scope for off piste and guided skiing (as does Bohinj-Vogel). In addition the country offers huge scope for easily accessible ski touring in pristine mountain environments led by excellent quality and value English speaking mountain guides.  

 

Snow

Due to their height some of Slovenia's resorts do have trouble with retaining good snow into April, several of them closing by the end of the March. However Slovenia's 3 highest resorts - Bovec-Kanin, Bohinj-Vogel & Krvavec all have good snow records and usually offer skiing from early-mid December through to late April / early May.                    

 

Other Winter sports

Cross country skiing. Slovenia is an excellent place for cross country skiing with world class trails in the Kranjska Gora region and the Pokljuka – a forested mountain plateau between Bled and Bohinj and home to an annual World Cup biathlon and new cross country skiing / sports centre in 2009. Ski jumping. Planica to ski jumping is like Wembley to football. Located just outside Kranjska Gora it is the home to the worlds highest ski jump and has been the site of countless world records and other developments in the sport. World Cup weekend at Planica is mid-end March and is an great spectacle if you’ve never seen people voluntarily throwing themselves down a runway and flying hundreds of metres through the air! Snow-shoeing, night-tobogganing, ice-climbing, ski-doo adventures…See our activities page for more details

Kranjska Gora ski holiday

Kranjska Gora is Slovenia’s most famous mountain resort partly due to the fact that it hosts annual World Cup skiing (Pokal Vitranc) on the Podkoren slopes and ski jumping at Planica, the world's highest ski jumping centre. The skiing is mostly orientated towards beginners and families with extremely accessible and high quality nursery slopes and easy blue runs within a couple of minutes walk from the centre of the resort. A chairlift over the mountain takes you to the long, steep Podkoren pistes where the World Cup races are held and which will appeal to intermediate and advanced skiers. The resort is relatively low so it is worth checking snow reports but artificial snowmaking means snow is almost guaranteed between late December and late March. The resort itself is a pretty alpine village in a lovely mountain setting, centred around a square with an old church with a wide range of restaurants, shops, bars, spas, pools and other amenities in easy reach not to mention the stunning Lake Jasna 10 minutes walk from the town centre. In the charming village of Ratece just a few minutes drive from Kranjska Gora there is a picturesque cross-country skiing centre as well as the famous world-cup Planica ski jumping centre. Kranjska Gora is a great base for exploring ski resorts in the region with 8 resorts in Slovenia Austria and Italy accessible in under an hour's drive! In summary a great location for a Slovenian skiing holiday.

"Kranjska Gora: the Eurozone's best value ski resort according to UK Post Office Ski Resort Report 2012"

Vogel and Kobla - Slovenian ski holidayThe stunning Lake Bohinj region plays host to two resorts which are just 10 minutes drive from each other - Vogel & Kobla (Kobla is closed until further notice). Vogel is without doubt one of Slovenia's best all round resorts, in a beautiful position overlooking Lake Bohinj offering a superb beginner / family ski experience but also offering some harder and longer pistes to suit more experienced skiers as well as outstanding off piste potential. With slopes up to 1800m it is one of Slovenia's higher resorts and its position as one of the first mountains in the range ensures consistently good snow with skiing usually until late April even without artificial snow making. New lift infrastructure in recent years has greatly improved queuing times and the overall resort experience.  The resort is accessed via gondola from the shores of Lake Bohinj. The gondola can be busy so it is worth arriving early at peak times. The resort is served by a ski bus running through from Bled to Bohinj and offers a number of good places to eat and drink on the mountain top or dotted around beautiful Lake Bohinj. The town of Bohinjska Bistrica offers a great modern water park, plus a variety of restaurants, shops, bars and other useful amenities. Another great location for a Slovenian skiing holiday.

Ski Slovenia - CERKNO

Cerkno ski holidayLocated in the hills above the town of the same name, Cerkno is little known outside of Slovenia but offers a quality beginner - intermediate ski area with Slovenia's most modern lift infrastructure (including new lifts and pistes in 2009/10) and excellent on piste restaurants / facilities. The resort has a range of beginner slopes and some steeper intermediate level slopes - many of which are very pretty forest runs. Even though largely covered by artificial snowmaking, the resort is relatively low so snow quality can be a problem at times – so worth checking before visiting. Beginners could easily enjoy a week at Cerkno, whilst intermediates may prefer to divide a week skiing at Cerkno and the resort of Stari Vrh which is a short drive away or perhaps Krvavec which is also not far. The town of Cerkno offers swimming pool facilities and a variety of restaurants, shops, bars and other useful amenities.

Stari Vrh ski resortLocated in the foothills of the Julian Alps West of the historic town of Skofja Loka, just half an hours drive from Ljubljana airport, Stari Vrh, meaning "Old Peak" is a small but enjoyable resort with magnificent views of the Julian Alps & Karavanke mountains, excellent on-piste facilities, decent lift infrastructure and one of the longest night skiing pistes in Slovenia. Pistes are mostly orientated towards beginner - intermediate level skiers with one or two more advanced pistes. There is extensive aftificial snow making at Stari Vrh but due to relatively low elevation snow quality can be problematic later in the season. Beginners could easily enjoy a week at Stari Vrh, whilst intermediates may prefer to divide a week skiing at Stari Vrh and the resort of Cerkno Vrh which is a short drive away or perhaps Krvavec which is circa half an hour away by car.

Bovec Kanin ski holidayThe highest ski resort in Slovenia at 2200m, the resort of Bovec Kanin is in a simply stunning mountain location above the beautiful Soca Valley with views over the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park in one direction and down to the Adriatic sea in the other. The skiing is mostly intermediate level and offers some superb off piste and ski touring opportunities with the valley of Krnica being one of the best off piste valleys in Slovenia – although guides are a must off piste due to the nature of the terrain. In 2009-2010 the resort was connected to the Italian resort of Sella Nevea on the other side of the mountain, adding a wide range of additional pistes, mostly intermediate-advanced level and making it one the best all round best ski destinations in the Julian Alps. The snow record at Kanin is superb due to its altitude and geographic position, although at times high winds running down the valley can mean that the gondola is unreliable. Bovec is a charming resort town with a good selection of places to eat and drink and plenty of outdoor companies who can offer anything from kayaking to ski-touring.

Krvavec ski area near LjubljanaKrvavec is without doubt one of Slovenia’s best resorts and its proximity to Ljubljana airport makes it the closest ski resort to an international airport in the world. Krvavec is reached by gondola from the valley floor where a range of slopes to suit all abilities awaits. With a top altitude of just under 2000m and artificial snow making facilities, the snow record at Krvavec is very good with the season usually running from mid-December to late April. Recent years have seen continual improvement to lift and resort infrastructure meaning queuing times are much reduced and the general experience of skiing at Krvavec is extremely enjoyable with a sunny outlook and beautiful views of the Julian Alps and across the hills South to Ljubljana and beyond. In good snow years the off piste potential at Krvavec is good with a number of off-piste forest areas to explore.

Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful ski centres in Slovenia, Golte is a small but enjoyable resort with mainly forested beginner - intermediate trails. Car access is possible by local road to the cable car station in Zekovec. Some 12kms of pistes await you as you arrive at Medvedjak 8 mintues later.

Rogla ski area, SloveniaRogla is a mid sized resort located in the heart of the Pohorje Massif mid way between Celje & Maribor close to the spa town of Zrece. The resort is oriented almost exclusively towards beginner - intermediate level skiers offering a wide range of blue and easy red pistes. Whilst it lacks the dramatic high altitude mountain scenery of some of the resorts in the Julian Alps further West, Rogla offers pretty forested terrain and trails. The resort is well run by the same owners as Krvavec Ski Area and offers good on-piste facilities as well as extensive spa facilities in the nearby town of Zrece. Low altitude is compensated for by extensive snowmaking, although snow quality is less certain towards the end of the season.

Skiing at Mariborsko PohorjeMariborsko Pohorje is Slovenia's largest resort in terms of piste length with 64km of pistes. It is remarkable also for the fact that it can be accessed from Maribor (Slovenia's second city) by regular city bus. With a wide range of pistes, mostly beginner - intermediate level, served by 20 lifts, good on-piste facilities, and Slovenia's longest night skiing piste Mariborsko Pohorje is one of the leading resorts for a Slovenian skiing holiday. It is home to the Golden Fox Trophy, an annual World Cup women's alpine skiing competition. Like Rogla the resort consists of pretty forested terrain rather than dramatic mountainous scenery to be found in the Julian Alps.

TARVISIO-MONTE LUSSARI (Italy)

Tarvisio Monte Lussari ski areaJust a 15 minute drive into Italy over the border at Kranjska Gora and the resort of Tarvisio – Monte Lussari, home of annual world cup super giant slalom event. On the Monte Lussari side of the resort a long double gondola takes you to a charming mountain top village and pilgrimage site with stunning views of the Julian Alps. From here there is a nice red-black piste and a superb steep, wide 4km run down to the bottom of the gondola. A connection at the bottom of this piste takes you to the Tarvisio side of the resort which has a wider range of pistes, many of which are intermediate—advanced level orientated but with a good beginners section at the bottom of the mountain. As you’d expect in Italy there is a good range of places to eat on the mountain and in the town of Tarvisio itself. There is a wide range of cross country skiing pistes available in the Tarvisio area.

ARNOLDSTEIN-DREILAENDERECK (Austria)

Arnoldstein ski resortJust 25 minutes from Kranjska Gora lies the pretty Austrian resort of Dreilandereck above the town of Arnoldstein.  The resort is situated on the border with Slovenia and offers a good range of beginner – advanced level skiing with an excellent 3km long piste running from the top of the mountain to the bottom of the lifts, some good steep run-black runs and a selection of gentler beginners runs both at the bottom of the mountain and at the top, where there are a couple of good restaurants and magnificent panoramas of the Julian Alps. Due to the unusual feature of having a selection of gentle blue runs at the top of the mountain it is a great resort to come to with a mixed group of beginners and more advanced skiers. Although the resort has a maximum altitude of 1600m2, artificial snowmaking equipment means snow is reliably good from late December until early April.

GERLITZEN (Austria)

Gertlitzen ski holiday 30 minutes drive from Kranjska Gora over the Austrian border is the popular resort of Gerlitzen. Significant investment in lift infrastructure in recent years has turned Gerlitzen into an excellent all round resort and one the bigger options in the region. With an altitude of 1900m and artificial snowmaking, snow levels are reliable from late December to early April. The resort is accessed by gondola which takes you to an excellent beginners area. A chairlift takes you from there to the top of the resort from where around 10 mostly intermediate-advanced level pistes radiate. Although most runs are reds, intermediate and advanced skiers alike will enjoy the outstanding 3km long steep red piste from the summit down to Klosterle and there are some more challenging pieces of off piste dotted around the resort. With no resort town as such at the bottom of the mountain, eating and drinking is limited to the on-mountain options which are plentiful and good.

NASSFELD (Austria)

Skiing at Nassfeld AustriaNassfeld (sometimes also called Nassfeld-Hermagor or Passo Pramollo) is the region’s premier ski area on the border between Italy and Austria with well over 100km of pistes stretching across three valleys and boasting a fantastic 8km piste from one of the summits to the valley floor. Extensive snowmaking, high altitude (2000m), ultra modern lift infrastructure and immaculately groomed pistes make Nassfeld an outstanding ski experience for all standards and is easily reached as a day trip from Villas Planina and Nebina. As you would expect from a resort of this size there is a wide range of on-mountain choices for eating and drinking and new in 2009 on-mountain ski servicing for 5 EUR in 10 minutes. There is not a resort town as such, but with so much outstanding skiing to explore you won't mind!

Bad Kleinkircheim skiingBad Kleinkircheim is a favourite resort in the region and one of the biggest with 90km of pistes to suit all abilities. Extensive snowmaking and pistes up to an altitude of 2055m mean that the snow is reliable and modern lift infrastructure ensures limited queuing times. The village at the bottom of the mountain is charming and offers a number of thermal spas and pools. Bad Kleinkircheim was the home resort of the legendary Franz Klammer and we don’t suppose he’d put his name to it if it wasn’t a great resort!
