Skiing in Soča Valley
Soča Valley has exciting skiing terrains of various levels of difficulty. Mountain lovers will be thrilled with the natural snow of the Kanin Ski Resort, whereas beginners will love the idyllic ski slopes of Log pod Mangartom. You can also experience the joys of snow at Šentvid Plateau.
The Soča Valley is particularly beautiful in winter, when a blanket of snow covers this incredible alpine region, with its unique character due to a hint of the Adriatic Sea. Fans of sun and mountains can ski at the Kanin Ski Resort until late spring, which is connected to the shaded Italian ski resort of Sella-Nevea (in Žlebe). You can also enjoy your family skiing vacation in the idyllic Log pod Mangartom, where slopes are particularly suitable for beginners or you might go on a winter break on the ski slopes of Suša.
If you prefer ski touring, you will definitely find what you are looking for in the Soča Valley. The Julian Alps offer extraordinary adventures in nature during the winter and picturesque terrains for off-piste skiing ascents and descents.
The slopes for freeride skiing of the Soča Valley have been increasingly more exciting over the past few years. In this sport it is important to have a healthy amount of boldness and an excellent knowledge of conditions and terrain. We recommend taking a trained guide with you for skitouring or freeride skiing.
Those who are full of energy after skiing, should not forget to try other joys of winter: playful sledding, magical snowshoe tours or cross-country skiing. For a greater adrenaline rush feel free to discover the basics of guided ice climbing.
