"I have skied at both little known and world famous ski resorts in Europe, America, Asia and Australia, but Slovenia's ski centres are by far the friendliest. If you don’t know how to ski, you will learn the skills of this wonderful sport in a few days. Slovenia's ski centres have excellent and recognised ski schools.”
