Why should a ski break bi limited to one location? It shouldn't. Not in Slovenia, anyway. Our country presents you with the most diverse landscape in such a small area that allows you to test your skills at a variety of locations within a matter of hours. No wonder it’s a nation of skiers. And this amazing package, which includes 4 top Slovenian ski resorts, will show you why.
Based in the capital, Ljubljana, you will venture to a selection of the best ski resorts, each with its unique features, amazing slopes and spectacular views. We’ll start you off with arguably the most popular ski resort in Slovenia - Krvavec. It’s located just outside the capital city and prides itself on excellent training grounds for kids and fun activities for intermediates and pros, including jumps and snowbiking.
Situated right on the border with Italy, your next stop will be Kanin. This awe-inspiring resort is a cable-car ride up from the town of Bovec and its excellent pistes are accompanied by dramatic rocky outcrops and stunning views. On a clear day you can see all the way to the Adriatic. From the way up high it’s slightly more south to Cerkno, a lovely resort on the edge of the mountainous region with outstanding cross-country skiing terrain to get up close and personal with the wild wintertime surroundings. To round up your adventure, it’s time to venture into the very heart of the Julian Alps and test your skiing skills on the slopes of famous Kranjska Gora. You’ll get a chance to swish down the pistes amidst insanely wonderful mountain backdrops and have a hot tea or cold beer right next to the slopes.
In short, this ski break consists of over 100 km of slopes of varying difficulties in unforgettably gorgeous ski resorts complemented by superb après-ski activities in Ljubljana. Let the adventure begin!
We will pick you up at the international airport and take you straight to Krvavec. This ski resort is less than 30 min from the airport and is the largest of its kind in Slovenia. It offers more than 25 km of excellent pistes, covering an area of 110 ha. Krvavec is ideal because it comes with a nice balance of easy blue and green runs as well as some fantastic red and black pistes for the adrenaline seekers among you. Situated above the 2000 m mark, Krvavec ensures a very long ski season that stretches from December to early April. It is considered a sunny resort and the views above the cloud line are out of this world. On slightly cloudy days, you even get the illusion of skiing on an island in the sky.
The Sella Nevea-Kanin ski resort is the highest in the country and the first cross-border ski centre in Europe. Its altitude of 2,300 metres ensures skiing conditions remain good until spring. Mt. Kanin is a cable-car ride from the town of Bovec. The slopes are accompanied by dramatic rocky outcrops and memorising views which on a clear day can stretch all the way to the Adriatic. Sella Nevea-Kanin’s 30 km of slopes present you with excellent skiing in surroundings that can only be described as magical.
The Cerkno ski resort consists of excellent slopes supported by modern facilities. The resort has been voted the best Slovenian ski resort for several consecutive years. Besides a variety of pistes, the Cerkno resort offers cross-country skiing in the surrounding area and a track for sledding.
The Kranjska Gora ski resort is perched in the stunning embrace of the Julian Alps. Famous for its accessibility, all the slopes in this ski resort are conveniently located on the edge of town. There are 20 km consisting of 19 runs from green to black skiing and snowboarding slopes. Kranjska Gora is the best winter sports hub in Slovenia. It annually hosts the slalom and giant slalom of the Alpine Skiing World Cup while the nearby Tamar Valley, a superb cross-country skiing area, also hosts ski jumping competitions at Planica. In the late afternoon, it's back to the airport.
