vogel oneVogel Slovenia gets over two meters of snow this week. We received an email, ahead of a WSG fact finding mission next week, from the lift office saying.
“We have to mention, that it is not sure, that snow park will be prepared on day of your arrival, because in last 3 day we had a snow storm, and it fell down more than 2 meters of snow. The weather forecast for next days is the same - more than one meter of snow. I am sending you some photos of the situation, we had.”
The WSG team are taking transceivers and snow shoes, as it looks like they might be walking to get into the deep stuff. Keep an eye out for next seasons book, to get the full low down on the up and coming resorts of Slovenia. Easy Jet run cheap flights to Ljubljana from Stansted and Wizzair fly from Luton (ok if your near London). Resorts are real close to the capital making it a great option for a weekend fix.vogel two
