Skiing in Slovenia

Good day!

Considering skiing in Slovenia around the New Years Eve period. Which ski area can you recommend - prefer one with a bigger town and skiing for beginner and intermediate level. Are there any "all inclusive" type hotels in these areas? Or are there not, and if not what can you recommend? finding this info hard to come by. This would be for 4-6 adults (2-3 couples) of 31 or 32 years old, who would enjoy some nice bars and activities on top of the skiing. Kranjska Gora seems the choice from what I can find?

Yes, you are right. Kranjska gora is the best solution. Also maybe Mariborsko Pohorje. You can live in Maribor, 2nd town in Slovenia.

One option is also staying in Ljubljana and do a day trips around. With a car you have 1h drive to Kranjska gora, 30min to Krvavec and around NY there is a lot of stuff in the town (music, lights, market, bar, restaurant,...)

But you should realise that snow isn't guaranteed at New Year. Last year we had early snow so it was possible, but the 2 years prior there was no significant snow until mid-late January.

They do use artificial snow though right?

Not everywhere. It's not permitted at Vogel or on Pokljuka, for example, as it is part of Triglav National Park, but at other resorts such as Krvavec, Kranjska Gora, yes - but the conditions still have to be right to make the snow

So this means we could go there for skiing and end up with no skiing? I am sure it is unlikely though.

If we do it more towards the end of out trip? Say 6-11 Jan?
