Not enough snow? No problem!
Has climate change ruined your plans for a winter holiday by giving rise to a warm winter and no snow? Fear not! Even if there’s not enough snow, you can have an unforgettable winter holiday in Slovenia – only in a different way. You can visit a high-altitude ski centre where at least some ski runs will be covered with snow, conquer a popular peak, or find patches of snow hiding in idyllic alpine valleys. Maybe you can exchange your skis for a bicycle and take a trip around Slovenia. You certainly won’t be bored!
Enjoy skiing on high-altitude ski-slopes
Ski centres at altitudes higher than 1000 metres above sea level are usually still operating when spring flowers start blooming in the valleys. They mostly use artificial snow but there are also some ski slopes boasting only natural snow. Despite the rather springlike atmosphere, you will be able to ski on at least some parts of snow-covered ski runs.
Put on hiking boots instead of ski boots
You can add hiking adventures to your skiing holidays. Join many others in improving your fitness by hiking and climbing to popular plateaus and mountains, where you will be able to enjoy wonderful views.
Discover the charms of alpine plateaus and mountains
Easily accessible plateaus and mountains are also popular in wintertime. Explore them in your own way.
Explore Pohorje in winter
In addition to the large ski centres of Rogla, Kope and Mariborsko Pohorje, you can also visit popular smaller ski centres, such as Celjska Koča and Trije Kralji. If the green winter prevents you from skiing to your heart's content, visit some of Pohorje’s attractions.
Visit popular spots in the Karawanks
Even in winter, the Karawanks are lit by the sun and many hikers like to visit the popular hiking spots there. Many mountain huts are also open in wintertime.
Cycling in winter? Why not!
Are you one of those who in warm, snowless winters swap skis for a bicycle? Do you cycle up and down hills and across plains instead of slaloming on white slopes? Even in the winter months, with nearly springlike temperatures you will find cycling enthusiasts in action all over Slovenia. Some places are interesting for cyclists even when winter is showing its true colours elsewhere.
What else can you include in your Plan B?
You can treat yourself to a pampering in a spa, visit an unusual museum, plunge into a virtual world, or try to find a way out of an escape room. If you prefer the outdoors, you can go on a trip and discover the pearls of Slovenia.
