Križaj at “Woodland Hotel” in Brezovica


Križaj, born in Kranj, was a member of a well known Tržič Slovenia ski family so he started skiing at the age of 3. In the season 1976/77 he received the first World Cup point, qualified among the 15 best slalomrunners and later during that season in Madonna di Campiglio he hit his first top 3 podium. On January 20, 1980 he achieved the first Slovenian and Yugoslav World Cup victory in Wengen, Switzerland and later he won seven more times, thus still being Slovenia’s most successful alpine skier ever.
