Day 1: from Vogel cable car to Dom a Kamni mountain hut (1100+ 600-)
The adventure starts with an hour drive to Bohinj. We leave some stuff at the cable car station and queue to get our lift ticket. Actually we are queuing because the lady at the desk is waiting for us to find our money in our bag, at the bottom left, next to the toothpaste…and here we are, in the cable car!
We very quickly leave the ski slopes to go through a forest and skin up to a little pass. Unfortunately, the clouds don’t go away and skiing outside the forest gets quite tough since the visibility is very bad.
However, the descents are awesome and nice to ski, over a real winter snow. The Julian Alps have suffered from the lack of snow during the beginning of the season but luckily, 2 to 3 meters fell 10 days before we arrived to Slovenia. We are skiing alone, there is nobody, and we only come across hare traces.
We go through a second pass and then enjoy again some amazing skiing, going down to the refuge. A known and surprising passageway will fool us a little bit: The mountain hut seemed to be really close, but actually it took us one hour to reach it through real Russian mountains using our skins.
