Kranjska Gora and Krvavec Revived for the Colourful Winter

This year winter in Slovenia started before autumn had said a proper farewell; Kanin and Vogel, the highest Slovenian ski resorts, had the earliest start to the ski season since records began, and this weekend Kranjska Gora and Krvavec welcomed the first skiing enthusiasts.

Kranjska Gora and Krvavec Revived for the Colourful Winter

In Kranjska Gora free skiing was offered on the first day. One of the most popular Slovenian resorts, providing outdoor sports activities throughout the year, Kranjska Gora features among the key attractions of the Julian Alps, a top region, according to the Lonely Planet, to visit in 2018. Kranjska Gora is famous for the Vitranc Cup and its Podkoren ski slope, where an alpine skiing World Cup competition for men takes place (3rd March 2018), and also for Planica, the legendary World Cup Ski Jumping venue (22nd March 2018), where ski flying was brought to a new dimension, together with the first jump in history over 100m. All 18 ski slopes, of various technical difficulty, will soon be ready for the skiers, who can also enjoy the snow beach, connecting the hotels and the ski slopes, as well the Alpine village and Christmas market along the streets of Kranjska Gora, adorned with lights, and an activity programme all winter long.

Krvavec, situated between Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, and Kranj, the capital of the Slovenian Alps, recently got a World Ski Award in Kitzbuhel, Austria, for the best Slovenian ski resort of 2017. This resort, with magnificent views and well-maintained ski runs, lies between 1,450m and 1,971m above sea level, providing excellent conditions for skiing on natural and artificial snow. Its 30 kilometres of runs guarantee 100 skiing days each season. For snowboarders, who can hardly wait for another jump and trick on the snow, Krvavec Snowpark offers a special challenge.

Both ski resorts have implemented some important technical innovations and offer many other activities, such as night sledging, ski cycling, and ice bars, among other things. Skiers can buy their ski passes in the pre-sale with up to 25% discount.
