General Information

Dear Colleagues and Friends,It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the fifth international SPE BALKAN SKI conference, which will take place from March 17 to 21, 2024 in Rogla Ski Center, Slovenia. After successfully organized conferences in Kopaonik, Serbia (2017), Jahorina, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (2018), the COVID-brake and unfortunately canceled conference in Rogla, 2020 and the very successful last conference in Pamporovo, Bulgaria (2022), we have the pleasure to organize the fifth international SPE BALKAN SKI conference, this time in Slovenia, in Rogla Ski Center, which stretches over the mighty Pohorje mountains. The perfectly groomed, white slopes of Pohorje reveal a snowy landscape full of incredible opportunities for fun. Take part in the 5th SPE BALKAN CONFERENCE and be inspired by the unique nature of Pohorje.

We have many reasons and a lot of energy to make this year's conference something very special. Book your dates now and we will contact you again soon with more information.

The SPE BALKAN SKI Conference is substantially and professionally supported by the IAESS – International Association of Education and Science in Snowsport.


SPE - Science, Practice & Education - BALKAN SKI CONFERENCE is a merge of curiosity (science), will of terrain work (practice) and unselfish transfer of knowledge (education) for people who likes snowy mountains and the most beautiful sport in the world – alpine skiing and snowboarding.

After the great experience we all had at the previous SPE BALKAN SKI CONFERENCES, where several hundred ski instructors, coaches, professors and other experts in the field of alpine skiing and snowboarding witnessed an unforgettable story of exchange between science, profession, practice and social events, we have decided to offer you a step forward to reach and exceed the SPE Balkan SKI Goals.
