White wintry views from the balconies

Autumn had turned into winter early this year. While the autumn weather was still mild last week, during the night a cold front whirled over northwestern Slovenia and brought the first load of snow with it. We’ve got about 10 cm of snow, just enough for the kids to go sledding and build a snowman and for the landscape to be white and fluffy.

Here are some beautiful wintry views from the balconies of our apartments. It’s amazing how beautiful and serene the snowy landscape looks.

Outdoor ice rink, sledding area, cross-country skiing trails and ski slope for children are now ready

It’s been pretty cold here in the last couple of days and we have received more than 30 cm of snow, so the outdoor ice rink, sledding area, cross-country skiing trails and ski slope for children are now available in the Zavrsnica valley only 5-10 minutes walk from our apartment.

It snowed in the last days of December, the first snow in this winter

All is white for the first time this winter! In the last days of December we have received more than 30 cm of snow. The snow-covered landscape in the surroundings is so extremely beautiful. We went for a short walk around and took some pictures.
