Considered the premier ski resort in Slovenia, Kranjska Gora (800-1210m) is a favourite haunt for rich Slovenes, Croatians and ‘western Europeans’ alike. You won’t find the most challenging runs here, but it is excellent for beginners and intermediate skiers. If you need more speed to get the adrenaline pumping, the World Cup slope in nearby Podkoren is sure to do the trick. Cross-country skiers can take advantage of a beautiful trail, made where the train tracks used to lie, at the bottom of the valley. The slopes are spread along the Vitranc mountain ridge from Kranjska Gora all the way to Planica, and are served by 6 chairlifts and 12 drag lifts.
In the far north west of Slovenia, take the A2 from Ljubljana then go left at Jesenice, 1hour 20 minutes by car.
