The people of Jezersko say that nature is at its finest here. This valley in the heart of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps was shaped by a glacier that left a heart-shaped lake as a memento. Around it runs a trail eagerly walked by loving couples, hikers and the appealing native Slovenian Jezersko-solčavska sheep. They have the peculiarity of dark rings around their eyes, and they produce very high-quality wool. Try on some toasty woollen slippers to warm you up in the low winter temperatures.
When you get to the town, the view ahead rests on the wonderful castle, which lies above the town and town square.

The winner is not determined by the fastest time but by the skiing equipment and style.
