With its great selection of hotels, restaurants, casinos and exciting events, Kranjska Gora offers ample opportunities for those seeking action and entertainment. One of the many reasons for its continued popularity must be attributed to the easy access to the village itself, as well as the slopes, and because of their altitude they offer favourable weather and snow conditions. Suitable for all levels of skiers from tentative beginners who can take lessons from any of the many instructors in the resort, right through to experienced skiers seeking an adrenaline challenge throughout its 30 km of pistes and 40 km of cross country trails.
