VENUE

POHORJE
In summer

A paradise for hikers and bikers among countless shades of green, listening to life in the forest and resting your thoughts. This is Pohorje in the summer. Take the adrenaline ride from the top of Pohorje for a light, medium or world cup trail. You can also use the Gravity Card. The tracks are suitable for experienced bikers and for those, who want to test their bike skills for the first time. Do not have your bike? No panic! Simply borrow it along the line.

In addition to all five lines with a total length of 15 km, you can practice jumping. If the weather is bad, you can spend the time in the covered “pump track”. Specialized Bike Park Pohorje also hosts numerous races and various camps for children and adults (in cooperation with The Gap from Graz).

POHORJE
In winter

Pohorje along with a part called Areh, is regarded as the largest winter resort in Slovenia. It has about 42 kilometers of ski slopes and 20 different ski lifts, among which the most famous is the Pohorje cable car. Pohorje is suitable for all skiers since it offers easy and demanding ski slopes and this is the reason it has established itself as a popular family ski resort. It also boasts more than seven kilometers of illuminated ski trails. Not only skiing or snowboarding, visitors can enjoy many other winter activities.

TRACK
Designed and built with care

The WORLD CUP black line with its length of 2.1 km offers adrenaline pleasures of the royal class. Monika Hrastnik, the most successful Slovenian female rider, describes the race course with following words:

»The entire route is interesting and great for spectators. Usually, most visitors spectate the race at the Rock’n Roll section at Trikotna jasa, although I think that the lower part of the course is also interesting because of the compressions. This is the section, where you actually see the difference in speed between the riders and the operation of the bikes. The terrain is very diverse, the track is very fast and you have to keep pace from the start. You must keep the speed you gain in bends and compressions along the whole course. Roots and rocky sections are in wet weather very slippery and this makes the course even more interesting and demanding.«
