So we had a go at X country skiing
Hi I want to ask if in September, will there be any snow in Kranjska Gora? As I am coming tomorrow and I would like to see snow for the first time!
Hi, there's no snow there yet. There is some in the higher parts of mountains in the region, so if you will go climbing high enough you will eventually reach real snow (there is 6 cm snow on alt. 2515 m above the sea level).
But maybe you will see the snow from a distance in Kranjska gora if that counts... and if weather is clear enough.
Hi, If you are willing to travel a bit westwards in Austria, then you can see real snow on some of its glaciers, where one can ski for all 12 months!!
These locations are around Zell Am See, near Kaprun.
Equally, Switzerland too has some glaciers offering snow throughout the year :-)

OPEN: in high season from Mondays to Saturdays 8AM - 8PM

Charlies! Some People even have two
"Charlie's, (ice cream and cake shop) it's a cafe you can have Tea, Coffee, Beer, all the local Brandies but most of all you can have cake and ice cream.
The cakes and the ice cream are all made in the shop and they are great. There are friendly arguments as to which has the nicer cakes, Charlie's, or the Brown bear in Bled, for me Charlie's wins hands down. And if you tell the boss he might even smile for you.
Try them both and make your own mind up.
But can you eat Two cream slices?
Ski jumping finals
Nice ski flying hill Velikanka or something where we got to see world records this year. Made by finnish Matti Hautamäki, 231 m.
Next year 2004 there'll be World Championships in ski flying instead of season finals in wc. Sun glasses, some flags to cheer for your favourite team and other necessary equipment.
Good shoes, as it can be slippery and muddy.
THE THREE COUNTRIES RUN.....
Each year, cross-country runners test their skills in a cross-country skiing competition.
The route runs through 3 countries; AUSTRIA, ITALY AND SLOVENIA.
This really is a great event....
Views and falls
In the martuljek mountain range there are waterfalls to see. The walk to the 30m high lower falls is quite easy but a little slippery in places.
The view from the field before you enter the National park boundry is worth a visit in itself, It is hard to imagine a way thorough to the falls from here. One warning, if it should start to rain anything but lightly, I advise you not to go because the gorge can turn into a raging torrent as the new bridges clearly show. The old route has been washed away, it used to be a path on the left bank of the river.
After the first waterfall there is a mountain hut Brunarica Pri ingotu serving local food and drinks, this is worth a visit while you are there and the scenery in Jasenje meadow is awesome.
From here you can go to the higher fall signposted Zgornji slap II but don't believe the times on some of the signs they seem very optomistic.
If you do not want to come down the same way you can follow the road that leads to the hut in the opposite direction..
Note: on my recent visit on 7th of June 2004 most of the bridges were out (again) this is why you do not go if it rains and we had to walk across on thin planks, scary but fun.
August 2006 and we have all new bridges.
