Don’t worry, Slovenia also has higher-lying ski centres where you can go skiing even when snowdrops and primroses are already blooming in the valley.

Skiing without borders on Kanin

The Kanin ski centre is the only Slovenian ski centre located high up in the Alps, at an elevation of 2,292 m. It is connected to the neighbouring Sella Nevea ski centre in Italy, and together they offer skiers more than 30 kilometres of well-maintained ski runs and skiing with a single ski pass. Due to the high elevation and an abundance of snow, the ski season in this ski centre usually lasts until the May Day holidays. In addition to excellent spring-time skiing, you’ll also be rewarded with a splendid view of the Soča Valley and the Julian Alps.


Spring-time skiing on Krvavec

The Krvavec Ski Centre is one of the most popular ski centres in Slovenia, and for a number of years it has been named the Top Slovenian Ski Centre. There, you can find 30 kilometres of dedicated ski runs and an abundance of other snow fun at an elevation from 1450 to 1971 m. It is the closest ski centre to the capital city of Ljubljana and it provides at least 100 days of skiing every season. The ski season usually lasts until April, but it can last longer if the snow conditions are favourable. The ski season is usually concluded with an exciting event called Luža.
