It has been quite a while that the FIS Snowboard World Cup was in Slovenia before Rogla took over control last season thus ending a long break of eight years of waiting for high level snowboard competition sports.
In 2005, Maribor had been organizing a parallel World Cup. In 2013, the circuit came back to the Pohorje region, however, leaving its first foot prints in Rogla.
Due to an incredibly well ran event, it's no wonder, that Rogla is back on the map again.
Rogla offers the enjoyment of winter sport from late autumn to early spring guaranteeing a minimum of hundred on-snow days on excellent slopes covered with natural as well as artificial snow.
Approximately 100 hectares of maintained slopes for beginners, recreational and competitive winter sport lovers contain 11 ski lifts, 2 chair lifts.
In addition, the fun park Rogla, located along the left side of the slope Mašin Žaga, offers a lot for the freestyle riders.
it consists of a halfpipe in the upper part as well as of several other elements such as slides, jumps, etc.
A special adventure is night skiing on the lit ski slopes Kosuta and Jasa.
Season's best climbers of the 2014 FIS Alpine Snowboard World Cup tour Ester Ledecka (CZE) and Lukas Mathies (AUT) secured their career's first in the second parallel giant slalom race of this winter which was staged in Rogla, Slovenia, today.

The second parallel giant slalom of the current FIS Alpine Snowboard World Cup season scheduled for next Saturday, January 18, is characterised by the battle for national Olympic team spots. The world's best raceboarders will get their last chance in Rogla, Slovenia, to bring forward some more arguments for their nomination for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. But the battle for the Sochi tickets is not everything the riders have in mind as the FIS Alpine Snowboard World Cup tour is also entering crunch mode with the penultimate stop of this winter.
