Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Kranjska gora budget alternative

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi guys. My wife, 5 year old daughter and I have been to Kranjska Gora the last couple of years and are looking for a change of scene for next year. Had a Google around but to be honest every resort gets mixed reviews.
We love Kranjska but we've explored the whole piste now and are ready for a change.

Important factors Smile
Budget! - Slovenian type pricing would be good, couldn't really pay much more than this.
No massive premium for a Christmas stay. This year we went for Christmas and it was actually cheaper which was good.
Lots of easy slopes-my wife isn't the most confident skiier.
Town-ideally a pretty town.
Snow quality--we got a bit stung in Kranjska this year by poor snow.

I know that we can't necessarily have it all but do you guys have any good recommendations for us.
Appreciate all the advice Smile

This winter was a bit so so in Slovenia... well ok not so so, but complete shi**t. High temperatures pretty much whole winter, basically no natural snow etc. But at least it was sunny most of time Smile
Kranjska Gora is nice place, but as far as skiing goes, it's very very limited. If I would recommend place, I would certainly recommend Krvavec. It's still not anything like big Austrian resorts, but it's bigger and more variety then Kranjska Gora.
If you would think about this option, drop me a note, as we are running small apartment in Kranj (https://www.booking.com/hotel/si/goldenfields-apartment.html) and could be able to help with that Wink It's some 15min from Krvavec and pretty much in middle if you decide to try some other resorts during stay (Stari Vrh, Cerkno, Vogel, Kranjska Gora).

I'd have a look at Kopaonik. Not the prettiest town in the world but not bad, and fits the bill for relatively easy skiing without breaking the bank.

Quite a few friends have done both and rated Kopaonik as a better resort, but that may be patriotism clouding impartiality.

Thanks for the advice guys, I'll look into them. Love kranjska gora but it was such a shame the snow wasn't great this year, even though other resorts nearby had lots.

Ooh that's an idea. I went to Andorra about 15 years ago. I stayed in Pas dela casa, which to be honest wasn't as pretty as Slovenia. Do you know of any pretty resorts along the lines of kranjska gora?

I had seen this provider recommended in another thread. I tried to contact them to make some enquiries on the UK telephone number on their website but it goes to a travel company (Gullivers I think) who deny knowing Reka Hisa at all or the Mrs Brennand listed as the contact on their website? Do they exist?

Jasna, Slovakia. Its not a chocolate box resort and the town nearby (Liptovsky Mikulas) isnt either but the mountain has always been good when i've been. Alot of money has been ploughed in to the lift system since i was last over. Try Paul at propaganda snowboards.

How about Bansko? Prices look good, and the skiing seems a little more extensive than Kranjska. Is the snow as reliable, and is it family friendly?
