There are several dozens fully maintained ski centers stretched out across the corner of the Alps that extends into Slovenia. Each in its own way offers (Skiing) a full dose of winter enjoyment. Artificial snow machines ensure fun in the snow even during milder winters. The main advantage of Slovenia’s ski centers is that almost all of them feature direct access to and from the lowlands. This easy access and the proximity of urban centers are enhanced by modern cable lift facilities. And the features that distinguish almost all of Slovenia’s ski centers are their small size and diverse terrain.
All the ski resorts in Slovenia are suitable for families, offering plenty of beginner and intermediate runs, and very competitively priced ski lessons, in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The major ski resort in Slovenia is Kranjska Gora, sitting on the Italian and Austrian borders, in the gorgeous alpine Zgornjesavska Valley.
