Bohinj ski & snowboard holidays take you to a cluster of villages around the glacial lake of the same name in western Slovenia. Surrounded by the Julian Alps, it is a good choice for those seeking a relaxing break in an unspoilt area of great natural beauty. The two main ski areas, Kobla and Vogel are at either end of the lake. A complementary bus links the two. Vogel is great for beginners and improvers, while the Kobla slopes attract the intermediate skier. The resort lies at an altitude of five hundred metres with the highest lift taking you to eighteen hundred metres. There are sixty kilometres of piste and the longest run is nine kilometres. The resort has trails for cross country skiers and there is a snow park in the area for boarders. Bohinj is an ideal destination for those with non-skiers in their party as there is plenty to see and do.
If your budget is rather tight, you'll find low cost Bohinjski holidays offer great value for money. The resort provides good facilities with well-groomed slopes and you'll find the standard English speaking ski instructors is excellent. Those who are new to the sport can head to the nursery slopes at Vogel where they can learn the basics. The wide, gentle slopes help them to gain in confidence so that they can then attempt greater challenges further up the mountain. Intermediates have a good choice of red and black runs, above and below the treeline. The resort does not provide many challenges for the advanced skier and there are also few off-piste opportunities. Boarders can enjoy the open terrain as well as the snow park.
Bohinj has a range of good quality hotels, apartments and chalets which are surprisingly cheap. Tariffs here are lower than those found in the more popular European resorts.
