Pohorje, the biggest ski centre in Slovenia, entertains everyone from beginners to advanced skiers and boarders. With 41.5 km of varied and well-kept piste, it’s non-stop fun for friends and families alike. The customary ski/board school will launch you up to the more challenging runs soon enough, but if it’s exercise and scenery you’re after, there are 27km of cross country trails. We love the location, right beside Slovenia’s second city, Maribor; explaining why it attracts so many Austrians and Croatians every year. It’s a relatively rare urban and ski experience in one. Pohorje is accessed by way of 5 chairlifts, 16 ski-lifts and a gondola, thelatter even being reachable by Maribor city bus.
If you happen to have a car, Maribor is one and a half hours east from Ljubljana on the A1 motorway. Otherwise take a train then catch a city bus.
