Great Ski areas and resorts in Slovenia
There are several dozen fully maintained ski centres stretched out across the corner of the Alps that extends into Slovenia. Each in its own way offers a full dose of winter enjoyment. Artificial snow machines ensure fun in the snow even during milder winters. The main advantage of Slovenia’s ski centres is that almost all of them feature direct access to and from the lowlands.

All but one of Slovenia's 10 highest peaks are to be found in the Julian Alps, within the boundary of the Triglav National Park, the sole exception being Grintovec, the highest mountain in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps - Logar Valley.
