Now we visited in Summer so there wasn't much skiing going on at the ski centre, but it is well worth a trip to the top for the views and so quiet walking.
We walked from Ribcev laz along the lakeside to the cable car station at Ukanc first and then took the trip up to Vogel before walking at the top and having lunch up here. The views really are fanastic when it is clear. You get a great panorama of the lake below (best seen from the cafe inside the cable car station!) and can see over the top of the mountains on the north of the lake and all the way to Mount Triglav. Stunning. Only drawback is the cost. We had a discount as we had purchased the Bohinj guest card (10% ish discount here) and it still cost us 11EUR each for the return trip (which takes about 5 minutes).
It was quite eerie in some ways at the top in summer as all the restaurants and other businesses which clearly cater for the ski season are closed down so it's a bit like a ghost town.

Address: d.d. Ukanc 6 Bohinjsko Jezero 4265
