A summer and winter tourist resort in northwestern Slovenia near the borders with Austria and Italy, Kranjska Gora touches Triglav National Park to the south. The imposing peaks of the Julian Alps, the vast forests stretching from Mojstrana to Ratece, and the ski areas among them attract hikers, alpinists, bicyclists, and skiers.
Kranjska Gora in winter
The Kranjska Gora ski lifts have the longest history in Slovenia. They are easily reached since they are located near international highways, and because of their altitude (the lower station is at 813 meters) they offer favourable weather and snow conditions. The slopes are suitable for all levels of skiing skills. Beginners and recreational skiers will enjoy the slopes and trails in Kranjska Gora, Gozd Martuljek, and while the Podkoren trail is more demanding. The best skiers in the world compete annually on this run for the Vitranc Trophy in World Cup men's giant slalom and slalom races.
