One of the many areas of life where climate change is being felt is winter sports, with snow becoming less reliable and both resorts and more informal spots to ski, snowboard and sled now facing shorter or even non-existent seasons, if not aided by snow machines. Indeed, last year only two resorts, Vogel and Kanin, operated without artificial snow, and all are working to supplement their winter operations with more attractive summer programmes.

As such, you can no longer just look at the calendar and book a trip to the mountains – you need to check the current conditions and forecast. One excellent place to do so is Bergfex, which offers details of opening dates, closing dates, weather reports, snow reports, snow forecasts, webcams and more, to help you plan your trip and avoid disappointment.

Webcams and snow reports for ski resorts Slovenia

For example, the snow reports, which give the depths and number of ski lifts in operation, are currently given for 16 locations in Slovenia (see here).

While if you want the most up-to-date view of your potential destination then there’s also a collection of webcams (here).

Overall it appears to be great site (along with an app, for both Android and IoS) if you want to hit the slopes at the weekend – although note that Mondays and Tuesdays are better days to go, weather and work permitting, due to the lower number of visitors. We should also note that there’s also a site called Slovenia Alps which offers weather reports, but these appear to be more limited than those available at Bergfex.
