Kanin - Sella Nevea Ski Resort Italy/Slovenia

In the Julian Alps, the Italian resort of Sella Nevea is linked with the Slovenia's Kanin-Bovec. Whilst not super high altitude (highest lifted point is 2,300m - the highest resort in Slovenia!), the region receives masses of snowfall, evidenced in the late 20/21 season when the base was still 420cm at the start of May, with lifts still turning until the first weekend of June! An off-piste freeride attitude pervades the ski area, particularly on the Italian side, not unlike Alagna in the Monterosa. The combination of a deep alpine snowpack & adventurous spirit has definite appeal for Powderhounds.

The ski terrain is cold north-aspect on the Italian side, and sunny south-aspect on the Slovenian side. Whilst limited in overall piste trail length, the skiable vertical of 1,200m provides a lot of scope for shenanigans. Also, outside the main winter season, the daily lift pass price is so cheap its practically free!

Where is Sella Nevea Italy?

The Sella Nevea ski resort’s Italian base is in the Friuli Venezia Giulia (Udine) region of far north-eastern Italy on the border with Slovenia. By road, Venice is 200km (2½hr) to the south-west, Salzburg is 250km (3hr) north, and the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana is only 120km (1¾hr) to the east. The Kanin base is near the town of Bovec across the range in Slovenia, intriguingly further away by road from Ljubljana (13km/2hr).

The closest gateway airports are Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport (LJU), Venice (VCE) or Salzburg (SZG). There are plenty of flights coming to these airports from around Europe & the UK. To get to the resort from the airport you could get a pricey private transfer, but we suggest getting a rental car and linking it on ski safari with other Italian resorts (like in the Dolomites) or Austria's Nassfeld.

Sella Nevea Accommodation

A limited number of accommodations are available at the Sella Nevea resort base village of Passo Sella Nevea or in the nearby (14km away) town of Tarvisio. On the Slovenian side of the resort, Bovec is the place to rest your head, right near the access cable car!
