What to know before you go skiing in Slovenia:

The collision of four major European geographical units has created a very invigorating landscape, much of it thickly forested. More than a third of the country’s area is protected. There’s the most mountainous region in the north where the Alps begin. The Julian Alps and the Kamnik-Savinja Alps have many stunning peaks. The peaks of the Karavanke, the mountains bordering Austria, are less severe. 

The base for this skiing tour is Kranjska Gora. From here you’ll have tons of runs available withing
