Let's ski on the white slopes!

RTC Žičnice Kranjska Gora d.d. provides enjoying on the snow on one of the oldest ski resorts in Slovenia for 70 years. The ski resort received the World Ski Award in the years from 2013 to 2015. You can even go night skiing. In the Alpine Park try the giant slalom where you are tested for driving on time and "fun park" is waiting for all fans of "freestyle" skiing. Alpine ski club Kranjska Gora trains young competitors and organizes matches on European and global scale.

For the youngest is taken care of in the children's snow park where the little ones can relax, ski and have snowball fights. Children can also enjoy in playful learning to ski at playing park Planica. When not skiing children can sled, create sculptures from the snow or look for hidden elves. At the Alpina Hotel is a winter kindergarten where children are being animated and they can play with each other so their parents can fully enjoy in their winter vacations.

For all those who are just getting to know skiing there is a wide choice of ski schools. There you will learn alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, etc. You can rent skis, bars, helmets... In addition to all of the above it will be also taken care of hungry stomachs and dry throats with their catering offer.

You can take a free ski tour bus connecting the places in the Upper Sava Valley. The bus's route in the morning is Gozd Martuljek - Kranjska Gora - Rateče. In the afternoon you can return to the starting point with it. The bus also takes you to the cross-country skiing tracks in Planica and Rateče as well as to skating rinks and to the ski slope Velika Dolina.

HI card holders have a 10% discount on summer tubing Besna Pehta and a 10% discount on panorama trip to the top of Vitranc. The track is 1.5 km long and you can take a ride alone or together with your child.

After snow adventures and putting your ski equipment in the corner you can take some much needed rest in the hostel Barovc which is only 10 minutes walk from the city center. More precisely on the edge of the Triglav National Park above the lakes Jasna. Its surroundings are a paradise for all sports enthusiasts. There is a wi-fi in the hostel, a heated area for ski equipment, a restaurant where you can enjoy in excellent home-made dishes, a bar with an exceptional view and a 24-hour reception desk.

Fortunately, artificial snowmaking also works if there is not enough natural snow, so you can really make the most of the winter. Just make sure you don't run into a tree or a skier!
