Slovenian ski resort listed as one of Europe’s 8 most affordable ones – by Lonely Planet
Your European ski trip doesn’t have to dry out your savings account. At Lonely Planet they just made a list of Europe’s 8 most affordable ski resorts – and Slovenia’s Vogel is on it!
Vogel Ski Centre lies 1540m above the lake’s southwestern corner and is accessible by cable car from Ukanc at Lake Bohinj. Vogel has 22km of ski runs. With skiing up to 1800m, the season can be long, sometimes from late November to April.
Spectacular views of Julian Alps
As Lonely Planet’s writer Anita Lisalska points out: “Vogel isn’t as big as some of Europe’s renowned resorts, but its price tag is considerably smaller too. With unforgettable views of the Julian Alps!”
She continues: “What’s great about skiing on Vogel is that after arrival, transport costs zilch if your guesthouse has signed up to the bus scheme across Bohinj valley. Also free are beauty spots within close driving distance: Lake Bohinj (40 minutes) and ethereal Lake Bled (one hour), looking all the prettier under a dusting of snow.“
Though some guesthouses shutter their doors for winter, nightly rates in Ukanc, downhill of the ski lifts, skirt around a budget-friendly €75 per double (with more options in Ribčev Laz).
