Probably yes, but I have only been there in the summer, so no skiing was needed

Indeed

I think that I posted some pics of that road before, but here they are again:

The scenery is beautiful though

When I was there we parked the car at Rudno Polje (future biathlon stadium) and we walked to the top of Viševnik mountain

^ I went from Rudno polje to Triglav. When I was small, we once went on Viševnik to ski, and it was so damn steep that I almost shit my pants.

We have roads like this in some parts of Sydney. They usually don't function as main roads though, usually streets or access to parks.

At least bad roads aren't boring.

Indeed This roads exceeds 18% at some point, so it's a real adventure with a Toyota Prius

This road only gives access to a natural area with a few scattered homes. No through route.

You have such a road on the Austrian side of Wurzenpass.

A4:

Quote:
faza: avtocestni odsek od mejnega prehoda Gruškovje do meje s Hrvaško (0,56 km), ki je v gradnji, a ne bo odprt vse do dokončanja avtoceste na hrvaški strani. Odprt bo 11. novembra 2009
It says a small section of A4 will open near the border crossing of Gruškovje on november 11th, 2009. Does this mean that short bad section near the border will be history? The rest of the route towards the A4 near Ptuj isn't too bad, one or two intersections, only some slow traffic you can't overtake.

What are you waiting for exactly? The A2 ends a few hundred meters before the border. Will the new border stations be build at this new section?

Yes, of course. We can't open it for traffic until Croatia finishes connection between the A2 and Slovenian border.

It seems like Slovenia's avtoceste are all radial, except for the Ljubljana ring. Have there ever been / are there any future plans to build orbital routes further out, say a direct path between Nova Gorica and Jesenice, or Kranj and Maribor?

Slovenia is a mountainous/hilly country, so no. Kranj and Maribor IMHO do deserve a better connection north of Ljubljana (i.e. between A2 by Vodice and A1 by Domžale (you can see them on the map)), but all they will get is a more direct road, but with roundabouts.

New connection between Celje and Novo mesto and then further south to Croatia is also planned but it is far future. Everything else will be better main roads, but no additional motorways, there are enough of them for 2 million of people.
