In Slovenia, the only thing better than mountains is skiing

Живописные горнолыжные курорты Словении известны во всем мире

Did you hear about Courchevel, Chamonix, Megève, and other alpine resorts in Austria, Switzerland, and Italy? Did you hear about the amazing beauty, magnificent ski slopes, the incredible comfort of hotels, and full impression of the embodied paradise on Earth? Well, at the same time – did you hear about the prices of all these pleasures…? Slovenia is a unique European country. Alpine slopes, the Mediterranean coast and the Pannonian lowlands, and the main ski resorts of Slovenia converged on the territory of four Liechtenstein. Here you can see:

  • mountain peaks on which snow does not melt;
  • the Mount Triglav, which became the national symbol of Slovenia and gave the name to the nature reserve of the same name;
  • crystal-clear lakes;
  • picturesque valleys;
  • fast rivers and waterfalls; and
  • low caves of fantastic beauty in which cavers are ready to spend the best years of their lives.

Climbers, amateurs of rafting, alpine skiing, and other winter sports consider the Alps as a paradise for a good reason.

The rest in the Slovenian part of the Alps has a very pleasant feature that distinguishes it from the alpine Western European resorts – a relative, but very noticeable cheapness.

Neither well-equipped slopes nor the level of service of the odious Mezhev and Courchevel do not surpass such well-known resorts as:

  • Kranjska Gora,
  • Bohinj,
  • Bled, and
  • Bovec.
Is it any wonder that Slovenian ski resorts are gaining popularity every year (including among Europeans)?
A big advantage in skiing Slovenia is the possibility of combining winter sports activities with treatment in spa complexes with thermal waters.

Advantages and benefits of resorts

  • Family recreation. Any ski resort in the Slovenian Alps can be recommended for family recreation. Each of them can offer not only “blue” (or even more spectacular, “black”) trails, but also routes for those who master skis, three hundred meters long trails, ski schools, special children’s trails with infrastructure.
  • Accessibility. Absolutely all Slovenian resort areas are accessible by transport, almost all are located near cities and tourist centers (given the size of the country, this is completely logical).
  • A wide selection of hotels. A developed network of hotels and apartments ensures the availability of accommodation for any budget and taste.
  • Compactness. Small territory of Slovenia is surely its advantage. Mountain slopes lead tourists to the sea coast or health resorts with thermal waters. During a ten-day vacation, you can visit three climatic zones, and the rest will be equally beautiful in each of them.
  • Inexpensive rest. The aforementioned financial accessibility for wide sections of the population is unneedful of additional comments.
The skiing season lasts from December to March.

There are about a dozen of different ski resorts in this country. Travel guides highlight the following as the most popular ones:

  • Maribor Pohorje,
  • Rogla,
  • Vogel,
  • Kanin – Stella Nevea, and
  • Kranjska Gora.

All of them offer the greatest variety of tracks provided for the use of equipment, the presence of the infrastructure required for a comfortable and safe rest. At the same time, Slovenia offers the most reasonable prices for beginners and experienced fans of skiing.
