As a child growing up in Logatec, I cannot remember a winter in which snow wouldn’t present a major element in the organisation of everyone's lives. Adults hated it, children loved it. It presented numerous possibilities for free outdoor play, another disappearing element of our societies today.

1952 was a record year for snowfall in Slovenia. A 146cm snow cover was measured in Ljubljana, while reports from other parts of Slovenia were hindered due to damaged communication lines.
