ski touring in slovenia?

We will be in Slovenia in Jan 2014 and are interested in nordic or x-c skiing of two kinds: track/groomed AND touring/back-country (non-extreme). We hope to rent equipment. 1) Elevation/ snow quality/quantities: seems that the Lake Bled area may be kind of low elevation? 2) Any leads on touring vs. track skiing?
3) Any leads/ideas on renting equipment?

Hi Ellie! For cross country/Nordic, Pokljuka near Bled (1100m-1400m) would probably be your first choice. They hold the cross country championships and biathlon events there and it is well known for their Nordic\cross country runs. Stay at the Sport Hotel as they cater for everything you need. A backup choice might be Maribor Pohorje (1300m), skiing across the Pohorje ridge is magic as they seem to go forever! Plenty of good hotels at the base like Arena and Bolfenk. have a great time!
