Slovenia Skiing 2018 – what you need to know

Even if the country is a traditional destination for a winter vacation, the major Slovenia skiing centers faced some turmoil in recent years. The majority of the leading resorts needed and still need to go through the modernization and upgrade, but the process was tackled and slowed down by financial difficulties and other issues. For this winter anyway, investment exceeding 5 million Euro were made to bring up the level of service, reveals the local newspaper “Finance.” However, at this stage, it doesn’t seem that the improvements will increase the cost for the travelers who would ski Slovenia slopes.

Triglav remains a preferable choice

Triglav national park is the other name of one of the main ranges among the Slovenia mountains. The region is also known as the Julian Alps, and on this territory, you can find the most prominent winter resort of the country – Kranjska Gora. The owners of the entity running the place have changed recently, and they plan the construction of a new Gondola lift to the top of Vitranc zone. It will not be even started this winter, yet there are still substantial improvements around the FIS Alpine World Cup site. New snow cannons have been installed around the slopes to provide the “powder” when the natural snowfall occurs to be scarce. The old Brsnina ski lift has been renovated along with other upgrades made to improve the experience of those who pick Slovenia ski holidays.

Lots of hard work has been done at another Triglav winter sports center – Vogel. One of the prominent Slovenia skiing destinations happens to be as much popular for the summer as for the winter. Because of this, the reconstruction process started later and was about to mess with the start of the season. The ski centers situated above the lovely Lake Bohinj anyway will be ready to welcome the guests and the athletes on a full-scale not later than mid-December. The worn-out Konta lift was replaced and increased in capacity to serve more people than before.

The expansion is the plans of another prominent Slovenia skiing center – Krvavec. The resort located north of the state’s capital Ljubljana will grow substantially concerning the accommodation and the variety of service for the customers. For now, it remains unclear whether the 30 km combined length of the Alpine runs will increase.

One lift pass for all resorts

You can travel between different Slovenia mountains and use the same lift pass everywhere. This perk is probably one of the greatest advantages to booking Slovenia ski holidays. You might reside at the magnificent Lake Bled and make trips to Krvavec, Kranjska Gora, or Visevnik for the races. The price for the ski card is the same. The daily lift pass for Slovenia skiing centers costs 30 Euro for an adult, 25 Euro for young people (age span 15-23) and seniors (65+), and 19 Euro for children younger than 15 years. The season pass of the ESSV type with a photo has the price of 610 Euro. The 6-day card if you want to ski Slovenia pistes for one-week vacation costs around 175 Euro, but you need to ask for detailed information.
