Out-of-the-box events in Kranjska Gora in January

Kranjska Gora and the surrounding area host a number of outstanding events. In January, Ice Trophy and World Snow Day stand out.

Out-of-the-box events in Kranjska Gora in January

Kranjska Gora is a popular mountain resort located in the very north-western corner of Slovenia, at the tripoint of Slovenia, Italy and Austria. A number of popular, mostly sports events takes place there. We represent two, which focus on promoting outdoor sports and fun family time.

World Snow Day

On 20 January, the eighth edition of the World Snow Day will see 469 events and actions take place in 45 countries simultaneously all around the world. Also Slovenia, more precisely Kranjska gora and the valley under Ponce, where the Planica Nordic Centre is located, have joined the project and managed to create a fun winter open-air event, which attracts more and more people.

World Snow Day is one of the key initiatives undertaken by FIS to promote snow-related activities. Although their primary role is to organise a structure of international competitions through to the highest levels, FIS is also committed to the global promotion and development of recreational skiing and snowboarding. The event puts the youngest into the forefront and encourages families to enjoy in snow activities.

In Kranjska Gora, Word Snow Day will take place two days (19-20 January). What is more: a visit to the venue and also equipment rentals and professional guidance of individual activities will be available free of charge for all participants.

Ice Trophy

A week after, on 26 January, Ice Trophy, 3 on 3 pond hockey tournament, will take place on the frozen lake Ledine in the nearby village of Rateče. The main part of the event is an open-air hockey tournament, which gives participants a unique and genuine experience of sports in natural surroundings. After major success of the event in 2018, this year’s goal is to host as many international teams as possible. The event has also been added to EUROHA’s webpage and their tournaments calendar. Next to the hockey competition, a very varied accompanying program for families will take place. Ice Trophy is a great opportunity to have fun on the snow.
