It’s been a strange January here in Slovenia. Where temperatures

Lake Bohinj is the largest lake in Slovenia and sits
wedged into a dead end valley in the Julian Alps.
In winter the lake freezes over, but so far not this year.
In winter or summer this area is one of the most beautiful and
unspoiled in the country.

January also saw the women’s Golden
Fox World Slalom and Giant Slalom events moved to Kranjska Gora
from its normal location in the east of Slovenia, due to shortage
of snow. However the event went off without a hitch.
