    Runs and infrastructure

    The incredible mountain atmosphere of the Kanin mountain ski centre, which is connected with the Italian Sella Nevea ski centre, will take your breath away. Large amounts of natural snow and good snow conditions allow you to go skiing there even right up until the May Day holidays. The centre offers 70 hectares of skiing areas. Most of the well-maintained runs are suitable for experienced skiers and snowboarders, and on both sides of this ski centre beginners and children can enjoy skiing on flatter terrain.


    There are also many visitors who come here to simply relax in the mountain sun and air. If you’d like to enjoy a stunning view, go to the ‘snow beach’ at the highest-laying restaurant in Slovenia – the Prestreljnik Restaurant.


    What to do

    Kanin is a paradise for sports enthusiasts and those seeking an adrenaline-filled adventure, hikers, and all those who enjoy unforgettable views. However, don’t forget about your safety and don’t underestimate the conditions in the mountains: have proper equipment and adapt your activities to your abilities and knowledge.  All activities are carried out at your own risk.


    FREE RIDE: The combined Kanin–Sella Nevea ski centre is a true paradise for lovers of freeride skiing. Particularly on the sunless side of the Italian ski centre, the conditions for skiing outside of the dedicated slopes are excellent – the high-quality snow cover allows skiing in all directions, on more or less demanding slopes. Always take into account your knowledge and the safety precautions that apply in mountainous areas.


    SKI TOURING: Bovec and Kanin-Sella Nevea are a Mecca for adventure-seekers who love guided ski touring trips, guided skiing outside of dedicated slopes, and winter trips to the mountains with experienced mountain guides. Always take into account your knowledge, experience, physical fitness, and instructions provided by guides.


    THE HIGHEST-LYING RESTAURANT AND BAR IN SLOVENIA:  The Kanin Prestreljenik Restaurant, the Kanin SKI BUM BAR ‘snow beach’, and the Kaninske Legende Pub invite skiers and other visitors. As you enjoy a cup of coffee, lunch, or even if you are just lounging in a lounge chair on the ‘snow beach’, you can take in the spectacular view of the Alps. If the weather is good, the view stretches across the Alps, all the way to the Adriatic Sea. A view of the sea from a ski slope is a rarity that makes Kanin so special.
