Rogla is a ski resort in Slovenia, located on the southwestern face of Rogla mountain in the municipality of Zreče. The main hotel and sport area opened in late 1975 at an elevation of 1,517 m (4,977 ft) above sea level.

History[edit]

In 1974 Unior's management commissioned studies for the development of Rogla as a ski resort. The road leading to the peak was widened and the first ski lifts were built.

In 1978 construction began on the Hotel Dobrava in Zreče and the Hotel Planja on Rogla. The Hotel Planja opened in 1980, with the new ski lifts, and by 1981 the Hotel Dobrava had opened, along with a new swimming pool and athletics and football stadium.

By the 1990s Rogla had a capacity of over 1,200 beds and ski lifts handling 12,200 skiers per hour.

Between 2000 and 2004, a new hotel Dobrava was opened, four new chairlifts were constructed and artificial snow systems extended, making Rogla one of the ski centres of Slovenia.

Some of the activities at Rogla include skiing, snowboarding, hiking, soccer, handball, basketball, squash, athletics, mountain biking, horseback riding, swimming, and tennis.
