Vogel Ski Resort is a Slovenian ski resort located above Bohinj next to Bohinjsko jezero. The nearest city is Bled. Ljubljana is about an hour away. The resort was opened in 1964. It has a total of 22 kilometres (14 mi) of ski slopes, 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) tracks for cross country skiing and a snowboard park. The ski resort is located on the outskirts of Triglav National Park, therefore all snowmaking activities are forbidden on the area.

History[edit]

First cargo funifor started operating in 1961, but it was broken down because of the lightning strike. In 1964 the passenger funifor was built with capacity of 15 passengers. In the fall of 1964 also the first surface lift Križ started operating. In the following 3 years new chairlifts were built and in the 1970s they began to build the new Ski Hotel and other gastronomy services. The latest modernisation of the ski resort happened in 2000s, when the funifor was replaced by the new Poma's (2001) and two fourchairs were delivered by Doppelmayr in 2007.

Accommodation[edit]

Accommodation capabilities are available directly on the Ski Resort in a Ski Hotel (most likely will be reopened in the winter 2013/2014) or in the town of Bohinj.
