Unitur Rogla (Slovene: Smučišče Rogla) is a Slovenian ski resort opened in 1975. It is located in Rogla, Zreče at the top of Zreško Pohorje. After being most visited Slovenian ski resort for four years in a row, it was the second most visited in the country with 202,230 skiers in 2017/18 season.[1][2] It is the seventh largest Slovenian ski resort by ski area, with totally 13.5 km (8.4 mi) of ski slopes.

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.

The main hotel and sport area with first ski slope under old cabin opened in late 1975 at an elevation of 1,517 m (4,977 ft) above sea level.

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.

Activities[edit]

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