Our holiday: I am 34 and ski and board, this is the first place i skied. Have been here with er indoors, friends siblings and parents.
Website : www.bohinj.si, www.impel-bohinj.si, www.vogel.si
Basics : This resort is high on a plateau overlooking a beautiful lake and with views of Slovenia's highest peak, Triglav. The easiest way to get here is by car, 1hr from Klagenfurt or Ljubljana, 2hrs from Trieste.
Lift system : Mix of modern and old. Good bus liks to other resorts -Kobla/Bled, 15mins/25mins. If you have a car Kravavec and Soriska Plannina 45mins, Kranjska Gora 1hr.
The terrain : The pistes are spread out over the top of mount vogel. Although the extent of Vogel is limited (but nearby resorts make a week here very interesting), it really is loads of fun for all grades of skiers/boarders, decent terrain park The views are amazing, looking down to the valley floor and across to the Julian alps. The best run here for me, is the long decent back to valley level, a length of 8km. Beginners and inters will love it here, experts will find adventure off the beaten paths.
The snow : The place gets loads of snow at skiing level (1500+), but the run to the valley, from 1800 to 500 can be closed in poor conditions.
Off-piste : Although i have not tried it, there seems to be lots of good off piste oppertunities.
The resort : No village there really. This is a place to stay if you want to get away from it all.
Food : No recommendations on the mountain or valley really, i experienced good food at great prices when i have been.
Accommodation : Stayed at the pension Stare. Very friendly owners, great prices for half board. There are other options, hotel Ski, hotel Zlaterog and a host of other pensions.
Costs: Ski pass â‚¬22, Beer â‚¬1.50, coffee â‚¬.50-â‚¬1, meals, well pay more than â‚¬10 and you are being robbed! Mountain cafes Burger â‚¬2, coke â‚¬1
Conclusion: I have stayed here once and visited twice more. I will be back.
