The Kanin ski area is the highest ski slope in Slovenia with the ski season lasting all the way until May. Due to the altitude, the pistes seldom freeze allowing quality skiing on exclusively natural powder snow during most of the winter. By means of a cableway and connecting ski slope, the region will become home to the first truly international ski centre. The common ski centre will have the highest ski area around, with slopes starting at 2300m above sea level and finishing all the way down in the valley at 1140m.

Snow sports enthusiasts will enjoy 30km of natural snow, which will be supplemented by compact snow on the Italian side. A beginner slope, World Cup slope and many options in between will allow for relaxed and enjoyable skiing for all abilities.

For all those free and adventurous spirits who are not satisfied by the turns on the slopes, you can also take part in tour skiing trips over the untouched snow blanket of the vast Kaninski podi mountain range. The most genuine skiing experiences are only done in the company of trained guides.

Apres Ski & Nightlife:
Bovec town centre is small but attractive (it received a makeover in 2009) and is packed with tourist agencies and sport shops. Bovec has a good range of shops, cafes and restaurants. Pub SKRIPI is located in the KANIN ski centre parking area. From the early morning you can stop to have a cup of coffee just before boarding the cable car. The pub's staff will be waiting for you until your return. You'll be welcome to stay until dark and into the night to enjoy music, have fun with your friends and enjoy your stay in BOVEC-KANIN. Hours of operation: 7:30am to 5:00 pm.
