For those interested in snowboarding there are few snowboarding parks and a lot of snowboarding schools (if you are a beginner or just want to improve your skills) to choose from. There are no special limits on where you can snowboard – slopes are open for skiers as well as snowboarders.
It usually happens that the most experienced skiers and snowboarders get bored quickly; that will not happen here in Slovenia since there are some slopes marked black and used for World Cup competitions in Alpine Skiing organized by FIS. It is always a challenge to get down the same slopes as the best skiers in the world.
Pohorje and Kranjska gora are Slovenian ski resorts that host World Cup competitions in Alpine Skiing and are therefore the most crowded with skiers and snowboarders. If you are looking for a challenge while enjoying ski holidays in Slovenia these are the places to try. After finishing the infamous slope called Podkoren in Kranjska gora you will certainly need some time to catch your breath but then you will probably want to do it again. This is not the only slope marked black – while looking for a challenge you should try Kanin – Sella Nevea, Tromeja (Arnoldstein) and some other slopes in Slovenia.
Staying in a hotel, suite or rented flat or house – it is completely up to you. Accommodation you choose in one of the ski resorts is always close to the slope; either by foot or by car it probably will not take more than 10 – 15 minutes to get to the bottom of the slope.
Some of the biggest ski resorts in Slovenia have a pool complex with sauna nearby and there is nothing better than taking a relaxing bath or get some rest in sauna after full eight hours of skiing! Pool is also a great strategic move to stop children from boredom and to make winter holidays even more interesting and fun. Of course having a kid is not the condition to get into the pool – just wanting to relax and regenerate your strength is reason enough.
Spending winter holidays with friends is also a great way of having an awesome time; there are some great options for accommodation on the ski slope itself! It is just amazing to step outside the house, put your skis or snowboard on and just get the day started and it is even better to ski back to the house and get to rest without needing to carry your equipment for more than few steps.
