We had snow. 2006/2007 saw a lack of snow in Europe but Kranjska Gora bucked the trend with artificial and real snow for our trip in February 2007. There were 18 of us in total ages 5 to late 40?.
The hotel was modern with lots of marble and glass with two lifts serving all floors. Our room was a double with a double sofa bed, which when down meant you had to step over it to walk round the main bed and you couldn't open the balcony door fully. But apart from that and no bath just a shower the room was fine. Loads of hanging space for all the clothes we packed and never wore (always happens).
The breakfast was vast, hot pancakes went down well with the boys and sausage, bacon, eggs for the bigger boys and the odd pancake, well its rude not to!
Remember the days of skiing before children. Up early on the chair lift before the Germans start queue jumping, its changes when you have to carry three sets of skis plus poles to the slopes each morning and afternoon, BUT, its worth it. KG is ideal for families, lads week away no, families a big yes. The ski school was very good but so busy my boys could only get in the 1pm to 3pm session, which broke the day up. Get yours in to 10.30 ski school. Which means you can get off for a couple of hours before lunch. We manage each morning at breakfast to 'borrow' bread rolls, cheese, meat etc to make up our lunch. Tight. No just practical.
After a days skiing we would go swimming at the Larik Hotel, which is a sister, hotel to the Prisank and part of the HIT Holidays empire in KG. 4-course dinner really very good and the bar in the hotel was adequate. We ordered the kids pizza from the in house pizzeria a couple of times which was great value at 4 euros for 12' pizza which they had with us in the main dining room. No nuggets and chips at this hotel! Which was great. There was bar across the road called Papa Joes, which was good for pre dinner beers. Not a lot of nightlife in KG. Or maybe I'm getting to old to look for it. The boys managed to slip out to the casino one night and I managed to transform my free 6 Euros (courtesy of the hotel group HIT) to 50 Euros.
Key tip: Get your ski and boot hire sorted as soon as you arrive, at the hire shop opposite hotel. Hire a locker at the hotel 5 Euro deposit. Nothing for under tens to do in hotel. Don't expect challenging skiing.
