Description: Vogel is one of the most beautiful and popular ski resorts in the winter...
Vogel is one of the most beautiful and popular ski resorts in the winter, and the most popular high mountain centre in other seasons. Our slogan “Vogel. Like a Fairy Tale.” is the perfect description of our resort in every season of the year, and we plan to increase our profile with it and give our visitors this fairy-tale feeling. We are determined to seize the opportunities offered by our location in the heart of the Triglav National Park (TNP). Vogel cable car takes you to 1535 metres above sea level throughout the year (except during the maintenance periods). In this way viewpoints high in the mountains are easily accessible and also make an excellent starting point for hikers. You can choose from single or return cable car tickets. The cable car can transfer up to 950 people per hour. The Orlove glave quad chairlift also operates during the summer season (mid-June to end of September) and provides a single or a return ride in the pleasantly refreshing summer climate. It stops at the top of Orlove glave with a paragliding take-off point close by.

From the breathtaking views and variety of slopes Vogel is in my top 3 places to ski. You are almost guaranteed snow because of the altitude and if you visit on a blue sky day the views are literally breathtaking. Partly due to the altitude and cold :)

Quick ride up the modern cable car 13.50 euro return, extensive area of high ground with walks to nearby peaks. Signposting not very clear, you need a good map!

We took the gondola in this week and I must say, that even though we are afraid of heights we were so happy we did it. It is so beautiful up there! The ride up is quite scary, but fast thankfully. :) We went hiking and it is better to go without a stroller, just with a manduca or carry... More

the cable car up to Mt Vogel is the steepest in Europe apparently. Takes 4 mins to reach the summit at 1500m from the bottom which is at 500m above sea level. There is a typical ski- resort cafe at the top but there is free wifi, clean toilets and cheap prices. Coffee is €2 and tea a bit cheaper.... More

One of the issues with going up the Vogel in early May is this you are pretty much in the trough of off season. With the exception of the main building where the cable car docks there is nothing else open at the top. Sadly, none of the other chairlifts were in operation either. Unlike when I was here in...

If you're in the area (not far from Bled), don't miss this. We were there in April, but there was still snow up on the mountain. The gondola is very safe and well-built: it's a nice smooth ride from the valley to the mountain top. Up on top, there are absolutely stunning 360º views from the lodge. You get better... More

Scarey ride on a windy day, great views at the top. The cable cars depart every 30 mins (possibly every 15 mins in ski season). Once at the top, there is great views of Lake Bohinj. food/drinks and free toilets. Cost is 13EUR per adult

Not too much snow but lovely strolls around the hills to see waterfalls and streams, delicious local food to try.

Easygoing skiing for beginners, great for small children, excellent ski instructors. On a sunny day, the views of the mountain panorama is just astonishing. Often skiing possible in April. During winter months weekends often crowded, but weekdays quiet.

Small resort but wide slope and a good mix of difficulty for beginner and intermediate skiers/boarders. There's not much to challenge advanced level enthusiasts. Food and drink up on the slopes was cheap for resorts prices and good quality - a pizza and two colas was about £11. There's some excellent tuition available - I would recommend Alpinsport for both... More
