Bohinj is a slightly unusual ski destination being more famous for its beautiful lake than its resort. Indeed the resort is a collection of villages spread around the lake and the skiing is on separate mountains - Kobla and Vogel, at each end of the Lake. Located in the Triglav National Park, Bohinj also has a glacier above although the ski lifts do not reach it. The mountain scenery of the Julian Alps is spectacular and snow conditions are often the best in the country as moisture from the Adriatic hits these mountains first as it travels inland. The largest village in the area is Bohinjska Bistrica which is at the base of the skiing at Kobla which extends for a vertical kilometre above the village. Kobla is the only ski resort in Slovenia accessible by train. At the other end of the Lake a cable car lifts skiers up to 1544m where most of the skiing begins, in a narrow range up to 1800m. However there is a long red right back down to the Lake at 570m, snow permitting. Kobla has slightly more marked piste than Vogel, the two areas together have about 60km of runs.
A relatively modern ski centre located above the beautiful old lakeside town of Bohinjska Bistrica. Skiing is largely on tree-lined slopes, grassy in the summer months. The piste running from the top of the double chair lift Kobla III is 6km long. Kobla is the only ski resort in Slovenia accessible by train, with trains from Koper to Nova Gorica and from Ljubljana to Jeseinice. A snowmaking system has been in operation since 1993.
