You can choose between 18 ski slopes of different technical difficulty. Ski lifts and ski runs stretch over the slopes of Vitranc from Kranjska Gora to Planica at altitudes from 800m to 1,215m. The system of 5 chairlifts and 13 drag lifts takes you to your dream trail. If you want to do something else, look at the map of ski runs and discover the splendid terrains also in Gozd Martuljek, Mojstrana and Rateče.

One of the biggest advantages of ski slopes in Kranjska Gora is that there is only a snow covered beach separating you from your accommodation and the ski slopes. And of course, that a complete beginner can step onto the snow with the help of the excellent ski schools and instructors available. 

If you like cross-country skiing for long periods of time, then set on a 40-kilometre-long carefully maintained trail from the centre of Kranjska Gora past the Spring of the Sava Dolinka River and Planica ski jumps into the Tamar Valley and from Kranjska Gora back towards Gozd Martuljek. Cross-country skiing trails are well maintained in Mojstrana as well. Cross-country skiing to the Krma Valley is fantastic.  The cross-country skiing from Rateče to Tamar with an altitude difference of 260m is physically demanding. Those with too much energy can join the night cross-country skiing event along a flood lit meadow between the centre of Kranjska Gora and the main road towards Rateče.

Set your own trail for cross-country skiing!

Winter has always been the time when farmers took a break from the daily work and started preparing themselves for the holidays. Although now ski events are the most-visited, crowded and fun events, the tradition of old village events, when myths and tales revive, is still alive...

Have you ever seen a live Christmas nativity scene where the actors wear crampons? And where instead of a barn, the Holy Child is surrounded by frozen waterfalls? In the Mlačca Gorge in Mojstrana, you will witness a unique half hour show “Live Christmas Nativity Scene in the Ice Kingdom", where women with children and baby carriers are looked after, as well as the disabled and the elderly, who can sit on available chairs...  After the show, you can take a walk through the Ice Kingdom of the Snow Queen, the large crystal hall with frozen waterfalls and jets of water, and see another nativity scene, this time “inanimate”, on your way to the parking lot. When: 25. - 28.12.2014 and 01. -  04.01.2015  16.00, 17.00 and 18.00.
