of all the off-piste skiing in the area.

Aprés Ski


This is a resort renowned for peace and tranquility, surrounded by Slovenian beauty and with a stunning lake at the bottom of the runs this really is a unique ski experience.

Bled is 35 mins away, where food and drink is very cheap and enjoyable. Bled and Vogel are in the North West of the country towards the Italian border. A bus service operates between Bled and Vogel, it runs twice in the morning and twice in the afternoon.

It's not famed for a huge Apres-Ski so it's not ideal for wild parties, it's more of an unspoilt area in which to completely unwind. There are a few friendly bars in each of the villages. 


  • 3 restaurants
  • 5 bars


Other activities available in this area:

  • Tandem Paragliding
  • Bled town is stunning and only 35 minutes from the resort; you could visit its charming castle with breathtaking views and the town has plenty of restaurants offering great value food and drink.
  • Slovenian wines are easy to drink - sweet but not too sickly.
