The current Covid-19 does not give much hope that we will be able to ski ‘normally’ in the winter, but some believe that the epidemiological picture will be better in December. If that is the case, some Slovenian ski resorts will be open on the first weekend in December, reports RTV Slovenia.
As Jutarnji.hr reports, in recent years’ Slovenian ski resorts have been affected by mild winters, and now they have been hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. However, there is some optimism for this winter season in Croatia’s northern neighbour, especially from the Krvavec ski resort.
“We believe that it is possible to perform the activity safely on the ski slopes, of course in adapted conditions, but at the same time we believe that in this long winter ahead we will need fresh mountain air and movement. We are increasingly aware that we need to strengthen the immune system,” reports Slovenian RTV from Krvavec.
They are offering people who purchase season tickets in advance a guarantee of a hundred ski days, otherwise they will return a proportional of the purchase price. At the Krvavec Hotel, they increased the restaurant by 100 m2 so that they could ensure a suitable distance between the tables.
In Kranjska Gora, on the other hand, they are ready for all possible scenarios. They are hoping for the start of the winter season as early as mid-December.
“We are preparing for the season in terms of investment and content, a lot has been done, especially in the field of artificial snow and offers for children,” commented said Blaž Veber (Tourism Kranjska Gora), who hopes for Croatian guests.
“We can't count on the English this year. Croats have so far been the third among foreign tourists, mainly thanks to them, the rooms have always been fully occupied from Christmas to January 10th. Let them be as faithful as we were in the summer on the Adriatic. We have always been on good terms with them and if the health situation is appropriate, I believe that Croats will decide to spend their vacation in Kranjska Gora,” he concluded.
