Early years[edit]

Rogelj began her ski jumping career at the age of thirteen, competing in Dobbiaco on 23 January 2008. This took place at Continental Cup level.

Two years later she finished second in the Junior World Championships in Otepää on 27 January 2011, beaten only by Coline Mattel. Rogelj has ten top-10 finishes in the women's Continental Cup, with her best result being fifth in Ljubno on 22 January 2011.

First world cup win[edit]

At World Cup level she won her first individual event in Lillehammer on 5 December 2014, which gave her the lead of the women's standings until the following event in Sapporo on 11 January 2015. As the season progressed, she was unable to maintain her early form and finished fourth overall in the 2014–15 women's World Cup; this was nonetheless her career highest position.
