Skiers back on the slopes at Slovenia's highest resort

Skiers flocked to Slovenia's highest ski resort Kanin on Sunday (May 17) after it reopened recently following a coronavirus lockdown that lasted for almost two months.

The country has so far reported 1,466 coronavirus cases and 104 deaths. People still have to respect social distancing and are obliged to wear face masks and disinfect their hands in indoor public spaces.

There were about 200 skiers on Kanin on Sunday morning with up to 300 expected in the whole day. The resort lies in western Slovenia, close to the border with Italy and boasts a snow cover of at least 3.5 meters in depth at present.
