Winter travel should be a time of looking forward to fresh, powdery slopes, comfortable lounges, and a laugh-filled family experience. Images of zipping down the ski runs, maybe with an occasional fall ;), sipping hot chocolate next to the fire, and seeing kids take on a new experience, all flood the mind when preparing for the winter holiday. But where?
In central Europe, lies one of the continent’s most picturesque settings for such a dream, family getaway during the winter months. Slovenia boasts ski runs manicured so well they host world events, yet are variable enough for any skill set. Just outside of Bohinj which is only 30 minutes from Lake Bled, Vogel awaits to play host for your next family ski trip.
Resting in the Triglav National Park and just above Lake Bohinj, arguably one of Slovenia’s most beautiful locales, Vogel has the perfect setting for almost any getaway. However, the mountain air and white powder snowfalls make it a haven for winter enthusiasts with various pastimes. Allow the kids to glide over the snow while snow tubing, or if they are learning to ski, enjoy guided runs down the bunny slopes. Beyond beginner tracks, Vogel has a varying degree of difficulty making trip enjoyable or challenging depending on your taste.Apart from downhill skiing, Vogel offers cross-country skiing, touring, and special runs for snowboarding or airboarding, a specially designed inflated board that will send the rider whizzing across the snow. Vogel definitely crosses the gamut from rest to adrenalin.
The ski center offers a full line of cuisine and some basic accommodations for those who enjoy staying on the mountain. Other accommodations are only 30 minutes away in Bohinj. Along with food and a place to stay, the ski center carries everything in terms of ski rentals that would be needed. So choose to travel light and pick up what is needed upon arrival. It is hard to surpass Slovenia and Triglav National Park as a setting which makes a ski experience on Vogel the perfect choice for a winter holiday.
