Peak of winter sport cheering in Slovenia

In February and March, Slovenia will be hosting numerous world competitions. Join the plenitude of fans and cheer our favourites on! Add momentum to ski jumpers and speed to skiers so that they can achieve top results. The Golden Fox (the Maribor Pohorje) is scheduled to take place on 21 and 22 February, while the Vitranc Cup (Kranjska Gora) is scheduled to unfold on 14 and 15 March. The World Cup finals in ski jumping (the Planica) will be held between 19 and 22 March.

Be among the first to take fans’ positions at the Golden Fox that will take place on 21 and 22 February on the Maribor Pohorje. Cheer for the best female slalom skiers and giant slalom skiers in the world. In 51 seasons, Slovenian female skiers have won three medals. Did you know that initially both men and women participated in the competition? The first Golden Fox title was won by a man, a triple Olympic champion named Jean Claude Killy, while the competition was later taken over by female skiers.

The spectacle of female skiers is followed by a challenge for male skiers who will compete at the traditional Vitranc Cup in Kranjska Gora on 14 and 15 March. This is one of the toughest ski tracks of the International Ski Federation. Its steep slopes were tackled by skiers as far back as 1961 when the competition was considered the first great international event in skiing for men in the former Yugoslavia. That is also when the event was named – the Vitranc Cup.

Complete with a cheering mood, we will proceed to Planica, which will host the best ski jumpers in the world between 19 and 22 February. Watch the longest jumps and be part of the unforgettable sports atmosphere. You may set off to the Planica Valley in an even ‘greener’ way this year. Join a sustainable development project and catch a ride to the ski jumping arena by a special train or carpool.
