Ski Resort Bovec Kanin (Slovenia) And Sella Nevea (Italy) Will Connect Its Pistes Before The Start Of The Winter Season 2008/200 (23-Apr-08)

BOVEC KANIN, SLOVENIA, APRIL 23, 2008 - By the beginning of the 2008/2009 ski season, the Kanin ski slopes will be connected with the Italian side of the mountain

By the beginning of the 2008/2009 ski season, the Kanin ski slopes will be connected with the Italian side of the mountain, namely with the Sella Nevea ski slopes. At this point, preparations to start the related work are intense. A new cableway needs to be constructed as does a piste connecting both ski centers. All work is to be completed by December 2008, which means that at the beginning of the next skiing season, our guests will be offered twice as many hectares of skiing area.

The connected ski center will probably be called KANIN–CANIN and will be an example of the first such connection of two ski centers in an area where for most of the previous century there was a strict border dividing two territories of rather different ideologies. What seemed to be a dream – simply skiing across the border (which not so long ago used to be protected by arms) without any mandatory border formalities – is now becoming a reality.

The connected KANIN–CANIN ski center will operate with a single ski pass enabling access from both the Slovenian (Bovec) and Italian (Sella Nevea) sides of the mountain. The KANIN–CANIN ski center will become one of the largest in Slovenia, enabling skiing late in spring due to the high altitude on both sides of the mountain. The pistes will range from 2,300 m a.s.l. on the Slovenian side to 1,100 m a.s.l. in the valley on the Italian side. While the Slovenian side will offer sunbathing and views to the Gulf of Trieste, the Italian side on the northern slopes of Kanin will invite you to experience a winter fairytale. A unique experience. You are invited to share the joy of anticipating the coming winter with us.
