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.
Sometime during the night it started snowing in the Bled area and all over the Alpine region of Slovenia and by morning there is about 5-10 cm of new snow on the ground and everything is covered in white and so beautiful.

The first snow of the winter started falling last night, covering the Bled area and the entire Gorenjska region of Slovenia in white. Accumulations of up to 5 to 10 cm brings winter wonderland, but also icy roads so be careful when driving!
The Bled area had the first snow of the season yesterday afternoon, just enough of it to whiten the ground, but still a foretaste of things to come.

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.

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.
