Soriška planina is a smaller, but interesting ski slope, and is found on the altitude between 1287 m and 1550 m above sea level.

The ski slopes are meant for beginners as well as recreational skiers and competitors, which will have plenty to do on the giant slalom slope.

The ski slope has a slalom, giant slalom and downhill slope. Snowboarders, sledders and cross country skiing enthusiasts are also welcome.
Vogel is one of the rare skiing slopes where you can ski on natural snow up until mid-April. Because it is an essential part of the mountain barrier above the Adriatic Sea, it get far more snow than other places within the Alps with the same altitude.

Plenty of sun, unbelievable panoramas, beautiful and well-kept ski slopes are all more than perfect for those, who enjoy skiing the most. Masters of skiing will also be happy to hear, that there are also plenty of options for skiing out of the standardly marked slopes, in cases of good conditions and weather.
