Best World Snow Day Event
On 14th and 15th January 2017, the valley below Mt. Ponce has for the sixth consecutive year hosted the World Snow Day event.

The event has been also called "Planica games without frontiers", designed for children of all ages and the event has also became a part of the movement Special Olympics of Slovenia. On Saturday we hosted small and big heroes with mental disabilities. Their motto "LET ME WIN, BUT IF I CANNOT WIN, LET ME BE BRAVE IN MY ATTEMPT" has been the motto of all participants of the two-day event in Planica.
At the outstanding miniature ski jumping hill called Mini Planica, children got a chance to experience their first ski jumps. The aim of the mobile miniature ski jumping hill is to provide an innovative and easy-to-use ski jumping demonstration method with professional guidance. Anja Tepeš took care for slightly bigger brave ski jumpers.

There were a good number of other on-snow activities:
• Snowboarding for the youngest with Slovenian best snowboarder Žan Košir, which was a complete success of the World Snow Day.
• Cross-country skiing with a team of Ski Instructors Association of Slovenia.
• Sledding, tubing, snow hockey and snow football, search for hidden treasure, snow polygon and as a novelty, snow volleyball in cooperation with Volleyball association of Slovenia.
The event has been doubtlessly diverting and memorable. In January 2017, we hosted over 1,500 smiling visitors in two days.

Our loyal event partners, whose number increases each year, took care of delicious snacks, warm tea and outstanding prizes and awards.

A visit to the venue, which took place in the outrun of the small ski-jumping hills in Planica, was free for all visitors. Equipment rentals and professional guidance of individual activities were available free of charge for all participants. We spent two amazing sunny days in Planica with our children and their big smiles gave us lot of energy for the future events.

Children's awareness that at the same time also other children of all races and cultures enjoy such an event elsewhere in the world, surely make such an event even more magical.
