The VOGEL SKI CENTER lies high above the magnificent Lake Bohinj, in the heart of protected territory of the Triglav National Park. The beginnings of skiing date back in 1964. The cable car was renovated in 2001 and has the capacity of 950 persons per hour.
From the foot of the mountain (nor far from the Lake Bohinj) you are lifted to the altitude of 1535 m above sea level, from where you can enjoy an incredible panoramic view of the Triglav mountain range, all the way to the Kamnik Alps.
Usually, the ski season lasts from December to the first days of May. The high mountain surroundings and views give Vogel a special charm. In spite of the magnificent nature, the skiing slopes are not demanding and are excellently prepared.
You can get to Ukanc (the lower station of the cable car) by car from Bled through Soteska or across Pokljuka and across Jelovica and Soriška planina. From the Primorska side, access is also possible by car train.
When we arrive in Bohinjska Bistrica, we drive in the direction of Lake Bohinj and from there towards the village of Ukanc, where we continue to the left at the main crossroads. The path then takes us after 300 meters to the lower station of the cable car and the parking lot.
A larger car park for visitors to the Vogel ski area is located at the lower station of the Vogel cable car.
