In the heart of central Europe, you will find Slovenia – an idyllic and underappreciated country for it’s unspoilt beauty and breath taking scenery. Home to the Julian Alps, you will find a vast range of terrain to suit all abilities at a very affordable price for technical skiing in the infamous Alps. Throughout the ski areas you will find magical landscapes including frozen lakes, snow-topped forests and medieval villages dotted with traditional castles and churches. The resorts in Slovenia may be small but they are certainly mighty with Kranjska Gora being home to many international competitions including Slalom races as well as being the World Cup’s leading resort. Slovenia’s main affordability benefit is that you will only need one lift pass to experience all of the resorts that are available to you, with the added bonus that it is very common you will have the pistes to yourself as slopes are usually very quiet. Snow reliability is also not an issue here as like many resorts, investment into snow-making facilities allows for snow sure skiing and snowboarding throughout the season. One resort to bear in mind as great place for everyone is Bled; a lakeside resort which has plenty of terrain for all abilities paired with fantastic restaurants set in a stunning environment.
