Kamniško Savinjske Alpe
FEEL MOVEMENT. Forty-three ski centres, large and small, equipped with cable cars and lifts, are a paradise for those who love zigzagging down the slopes. Skiers and snowboarders who set off sufficiently early can admire the morning from the tops of snow-covered mountains. Your first morning descent of a smooth packed slope will remain in your memory even after your pleasantly tired legs have started to crave a rest in a nearby mountain hut. In some ski centres snowboarders have separate runs and special snowboarding parks for daring acrobatic stunts. For those who are less keen on speed and slopes, frozen lakes and mountain plateaus offer excellent conditions for cross-country skiing. In Slovenia pleasure is guaranteed on slopes and plateaux covered with a powdery blanket of snow. FEEL ADRENALINE. Away from the pistes, Slovenia's ski centres offer secret trails and hidden corners that will really get your pulse racing. The enchanting waters and magnificent waterfalls of summer are transformed, in winter, into adrenaline-boosting challenges for the adventurous. Ice climbing is an activity that only the bravest dare to try. For the sake of a descent on tour skis, the more tenacious among you will first climb a mountain on foot before heading off on your adventure. The untouched carpet of snow that sinks lightly under your skis will give you the cour-
age to repeat your climb to the peak. FEEL PLAYFULNESS. When we are relaxing after a pleasantly varied day, our childlike curiosity revives. Admire the true face of the winter idyll with a ride in a horse-drawn sleigh or even on a dogsled. The bolder among you might like to try a faster ride on a toboggan or snowmobile. Some ski centres offer real tobogganing adventures. Night tobogganing beneath a starry sky – itself a promise that you will wake up the next morning to another sunny day full of winter fun – is an unforgettable experience. Small ski centres in the midst of unspoilt nature offer safe, fun experiences in contact with crystal-pure air and the warmth of a cosy, domestic atmosphere. FEEL RELAXATION. Each of Slovenia's ski centres has its own story. Some will captivate you with enchanting nature and entice you on long walks. Others will reveal to you the paths of tradition in an urban wander through nearby towns. In the winter holiday season, you can enjoy the festive atmosphere among the stalls of Christmas markets and at outdoor events. For those of you who like to pamper yourselves after a tiring day, some ski centres offer total relaxation in the shape of spa centres, wellness programmes and the pleasures of fine cuisine. Everyone will find the thing that makes it worth coming back for active winter holidays year after year.

Over a third of Slovenia lies within Natura 2000 protected areas. Over half of the country is covered by forest. Slovenia is one of the richest countries in Europe in terms of biological diversity and one of the 15 cleanest countries in the world!* Slovenia's ski centres are in direct contact with nature protection areas. Most of them lie in areas that are mountain pastures in summer. Encourage the conservation of their special characteristics: eat locally produced food. Think about the environment when travelling: use ski buses – even from the centre of Ljubljana. Take the train to Bohinjska Bistrica, or take an ordinary city bus to the ski centre above Maribor. Be environmentally friendly: reduce waste and save energy. Thank you!

WINTER IDYLL EXPERIENCE Holiday. Sport. Relaxation Kranjska Gora
FROM THE BLOKE PLATEAU TO THE WORLD CUP The still-vital tradition of the Bloke skiers reminds us of how skiing has become one of the most popular sports on the sunny side of the Alps. The story began in the 17th century on the Bloke Plateau, where a unique method of travelling over the snow on skis was developed. Slovenian skis still sweep down the white slopes today and traverse great distances in the sky. Slovenia can boast successful professional skiers who are among the best in the world. Every year Kranjska Gora and Maribor host FIS World Cup competitions. Pokljuka is famous as the first biathlon centre. Planica holds the record for the longest ski jumps. And Elan of Slovenia is one of the world's most prestigious and technologically advanced makers of skiing equipment.
There are over ten ski centres in the section of the Alps that extends into Slovenia. Each in its own way offers a perfect experience of snowy pleasures. The main advantage of Slovenia's ski centres is that almost all of them offer a direct connection with the valley below. Ease of access is complemented by modern cable cars and gondola lifts. Two other characteristics of almost all of Slovenia's ski centres are their small size and their variety. The slopes are lively centres of winter sports activity. In the valleys, in the traditional ski lodges or on »snow beaches«, you can enjoy the crowds and music and mingle with other winter sports enthusiasts. You may be surprised by the straightforwardness, modernity and friendliness of the ski centres. Their proximity to urban centres, where you can enjoy evening strolls after a hard day's skiing, give them a special charm. And in your hunt for even more fun and entertainment, a larger town is only ever a short drive away.
