Enchanting in white. The snow-covered landscape offers a number of outdoor activities despite its serenity. The central ski slopes of Kope and Ribnica na Pohorju at the western part of Pohorje and the ski slopes in the valley offer skiers plenty of fun in the snow – from those who are yet to perform their first turns to those who are highly skilled. The reflection of the sun in the vast whiteness can also be observed at the cross-country skiing trails in the valleys and the skiing centres. The experience of the fairy-tale-like snowy plains, the unique winter views and silence is the privilege of the ski tourers, who can enjoy numerous opportunities for adrenaline descents down the mountains in the Koroška region. Perhaps King Matjaž himself will be awakened by all the wonderful snow sculptures and castles that are being set up in Podpeca each year at the end of January.
Experience the perfect skiing adventure at the Koroška region
Beginners, children or experienced skiers? It does not matter at all. The Koroška region offers kilometres of ski slopes with the promise of the best winter adventure on skis. The Kope and the Ribniško Pohorje ski centres offer an unforgettable winter adventure with the updated ski lifts and accommodation capacities. The well-prepared ski runs and the calm environment will only add to your skiing experience. The ski school for the youngest is available at Rimski Vrelec, in the Kotlje settlement under Uršlja Gora. And the nearby Ravne na Koroškem will not bore you even if you are a more skilled skier. Črna na Koroškem, where you can take your skis almost to the centre of the village, boasts an Olympic shine and some of the best skiers. Cross-country skiing enthusiasts will find great trails at Pohorje plains, between Kope and the Ribniška Koča cabin, in Črna na Koroškem, the nearby Bistra valley and the sports centre in Ravne. Experience the silent excitement high above, a touch of the Alpine exotic and thrill on the terrain appropriate for ski touring under the peaks of the two-thousand-metre mountains Peca, Raduha and Olševa.
Enyoy the winter activities
The vast whiteness will impress you the most during the active exploration of nature. Are you more interested in walks or slightly longer all-day hikes? Put on your snowshoes or krplje and step out into the really deep snow. You can explore the paths on your own or you can be accompanied by experienced guides. You can search for animal tracks or create snow igloos in the winter world. At the end of January, you can compete in constructing a “snow castle for King Matjaž”. Join us and experience the moments of perfection surrounded by white nature.
Experience a family vacation to remember
Create unforgettable family memories. Snow fighting, building an igloo, snowmen and other fairy-tale creatures is fun for the bigger and the smaller children. Learning the first curves on the white slopes or descending the hills with a sleigh will definitely put a smile on a child’s face. Real, spontaneous and unforgettable.
