In spite of its small size – at just over 20,200 square kilometers, Slovenia is the 45th smallest in the world – Slovenia boasts more than a dozen mountain peaks reaching 2,000 meters in elevation and plenty of other great splitboarding spots.
Away from its highest peak, Mount Triglav, there are plenty of other great splitboarding spots as well. Among the favourites are Škrlatica (2,740 m), Mangart (2,679 m), Jalovec (2,645 m), Razor (2,601 m), Kanjavec (2,568 m), Prisojnik (2,546 m), Rjavina (2,532 m), Prestreljenik (2,499 m), Špik (2,472 m), Tosc (2,275 m) and Krn (2,244 m). Each of these mountain pekas offer plenty of great powder down which to board as well as great views on the way up and from the top.
Sitting on the border between Italy and Slovenia, High Mount Kanin (2,582 m) is another great splitboarding destination. Starting from either the ITalian or Slovenian side, summit the peak before racing back down on the combined board.
During the winter, average daily temperatures hover around -10 ºC in the mountains. Snowfall is abundant throughout the winter, especially in the western section of the mountains.
Any trip to Slovenia likely begins with a flight into Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport (LJU). From here, the mountainous region of Slovenia can easily be reached in less than an hour by car or in about an hour by bus.
