Our resorts and venues are chosen for their quality of skiing terrain, value and tradition. We believe that a snowsports holiday is more than just 9am - 4pm on the slopes, its also an opportunity to experience and connect with Alpine culture and the mountain environment. Our hosts are also our friends with whom we have built professional relationships with over many years. We are confident you will experience first class service in our chosen resorts and from our accommodation providers.
Our spiritual home land! This is where we run our main training programme. The glacier is recognised as one of the best in Europe and is serviced by a fantastic lift system.

The mountainous terrain and proximity to the Adriatic sea give reliable snowfall.
Vogel is a small but perfectly formed ski resort in the Bohinj national park in some of the most amazing scenery. Our accommodation in 4 star Hotel Jezero is on the banks of lake Bohinj and is an idyllic location. The airport International in Ljubljana is less than one hour away so this really is a short adventure possibility.
Off Piste Slovenia
The terrain in Slovenia is perfect for off piste skiing with progressive slopes ideal for developing technique and skill. With high mountains and reliable snow Vogel is still a hidden gem! . There are lots of lift services off psite opportunities and with a short hike the area really begins to open up. The usual risks when skiing outside the marked piste remain and your guides and coaches will be constantly managing these risks.
