The connected ski center will probably
be called KANIN–CANIN and will be an example of
the first such connection of two ski centers in an area
where for most of the previous century there was a strict
border dividing two territories of rather different
ideologies. What seemed to be a dream – simply skiing across
the border (which not so long ago used to be protected by
arms) without any mandatory border formalities – is now
becoming a reality.
The connected KANIN–CANIN ski center will operate with a
single ski pass enabling access from both the Slovenian (Bovec)
and Italian (Sella Nevea) sides of the mountain. The KANIN–CANIN
ski center will become one of the largest in Slovenia,
enabling skiing late in spring due to the high altitude on
both sides of the mountain. The pistes will range from 2,300
m a.s.l. on the Slovenian side to 1,100 m a.s.l. in the
valley on the Italian side. While the Slovenian side will
offer sunbathing and views to the Gulf of Trieste, the
Italian side on the northern slopes of Kanin will invite you
to experience a winter fairytale. A unique experience. You
are invited to share the joy of anticipating the winter
2009/2010 with us.
This is the only ski resort
in Slovenia, where ski slopes are located also ower 2000m.
Ski season begins in December and lasts till May. Ski resort
is located in alpine ambient over the forest line. Because
the ski resort is locatec so high slopes are always nice for
skiing and not icy. View from the slopes if fantastic and
you can see deep in to the alps as in to the Mediterranean.

Bovec and its region
have contributed the most to the fame of the Soea valley in the
tourist market. Bovec has the largest accommodation capacities in
the valley; hotels, lodgings, private rooms and camp sites; here
you can also find the largest concentration of organizers of
sporting programs, for which the valley is well known; above Bovec
is the mountain Kanin - the only ski resort in Slovenia where
maintained pistes reach above 2000 m. Bovec is an Alpine centre
with a tradition stretching back to the times when Trenta poachers
guided rich townsfolk on hiking tours through the nearby
The Bovec region is one vast
natural monument. A significant part of the municipality lies
inside Triglav National Park, with a modern, well-equipped and
extremely useful information centre in the legendary Trenta
valley. The source of the river SoËa, one of the most beautiful
rivers in Europe, is in the Bovec region. Delightful little lakes
lie in the mountains around Bovec, the home of the gold-horned
ibex; at Kaninski Podi one can find potholes up to 1000 m deep,
among the deepest in the world. The Boka waterfall, which is 106
metres high, is only one of a multitude hidden in the deep Alpine
There is a rich historical heritage
to be discovered at every step; the peace and quiet of the little
churches, the awe-inspiring fort of Kluže standing tall above the
torrential Koritnica, and the remains of First World War positions
which are an eternal reminder of that senseless slaughter. In the
town itself one can admire the beauty and originality of the rural
architecture - the typical houses of the region and their
surroundings, sensitively merging with the landscape, and the old
farms in the mountain valleys standing as a monument to endurance
and perseverance and to the stamina of the local people.

three beautiful Alpine lakes on the Križ (Kriški Podi) Plateau,
high above Trenta; reached by way of a marked mountain route, via
the nearby Pogačnik Lodge (Pogačnikov Dom).
Over the millennia, the Soča has incised many a new river bed. Of
these the Velika and Mala Korita Gorges in the Trenta Valley,
which lie beside the road either side of the village of Soča, are
the most famous.

Kanin Abyss (Kaninska Brezna):
there are a great number of caves and abysses on the karstic Kanin
Plateau (Kaninski Podi), among which are the three deepest in
Slovenia - Čehi 1278 m, Črnelsko Brezno 1198 m and Skalarjevo
Brezno 911 m - which at the same time are some of the deepest in
the world; in 1996 the world’s largest subterranean vertical
drop was measured in the Vrtiglavica Abyss - 640 m of free fall;
these caves are accessible only to the most experienced
spelaeologists and explorers.
