Recent snowfall has enabled winter resorts in Slovenia to launch the skiing season earlier than usual in 2011. All major resorts are opening this weekend. It is hard to find the superlatives to describe the conditions out in The Alps at the moment. There is snow practicaly every resort in The Alps with some resorts receiving almost 1m in the past week alone.
Kranska Gora, Slovenia
Ski resorts in Slovenia extend across the Alps offering great hills that enjoy excellent snow cover and of course snow cannons in the case that the winter is mild. One of the best reasons to check out the Slovenian pistes is due to the fact that they are located in the lowlands allowing for direct access to and from the resort areas. Therefore, they offer great accessibility with ski-in urban centres that are equipped with some of the most modern cable lift systems in the Alps.
With plenty of small town village shops to explore, an amazing away of nature parks, and even caverns waiting to be explored, there is plenty to explore both on and off the slopes during any ski holidays in Slovenia.
