Instagram and other social networks are full of pictures of tropical destinations, ocean and sun. Somehow we are forgetting about mountains, snow, skies or snowboards. Due to lack of snow (at least in Slovenia) the feeling of winter is not there at all. Don’ let your skiing equipment down and take it out for a spin. I took mine to Bovec, more precisely to ski-slopes Kanin-Sella Nevea. Even here, the lack of winter could be spotted, since many of slopes were closed.
My accommodation was b&b Sovdat, about which I can only say positive things. The rooms were clean and modern, the breakfast was delicious, the accommodation also included usage of sauna and the cableway is only 1,5 km away.
Important: Before you hit the slopes, make sure the Slovene cableway is working. You can do that by checking the status on their website. We drove by the Italian cableway towards Slovene, realised it was closed and then drove all the way back to Italian. It would have saved us a lot of time if we had checked the website. The slopes were amazing and those who like off-roads and powder you’ve came to the right place. Just make sure to be safe.
Overall, Bovec is always a great idea for a weekend getaway. I, personally, think it is one of the most beautiful parts of Slovenia. Maybe because I spent many weekends here with my parents or maybe because the nature truly does its magic here. No matter the season, Bovec never disappoints.
