Description

An avalanche safety training is a must for all freeriders, backcountry skiers or mountaineers venturing into avalanche-prone terrain. I invite you to join me on this 1-day avalanche safety workshop in Kanin-Sella Nevea to get the knowledge and techniques you need for a safe experience in the mountains.

The Kanin-Sella Nevea ski resort is very close to the small town of Bovec. It is one of the snowiest regions in Europe, about an hour away from Ljubljana, the capital of the country.

An avalanche safety course is the basis for any adventure in the back country. It is a great way to increase your safety, freedom and enjoyment in the mountains. The most important thing to learn when you find yourself in avalanche terrain is snow and terrain recognition.

We’ll dedicate the first part of the course to the following theoretical content:

  • Planning a ski trip

  • Snow conditions

  • Necessary equipment

  • Terrain reading

  • Safety protocols

The rest of the day will take place outdoors and you will put what you have learned in practice. We will do snow evaluation and then we will search using transceivers, shovel and probe. This training is a grea

Mountain Guide

I am a UIAGM mountain guide, ski instructor and sports teacher and the current president of the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association.

I am still the only guide who can make a living working exclusively in Slovenia. I climb Triglav more than 25 times per year, which means I have climbed the most famous peak in my country over 200 times.

If you want to climb or ski in Slovenian mountains I am the right choice. I guide via ferrata, rock climbing, snow climbing, ice climbing, hikes, heliski, freeride skiing and ski touring.

Slovenia has good options for all of these activities, so you are welcome to take a look at my trips and find something for yourself. If you don't find anything let me know and I will see if I can help you!

I speak English. Ich sprache auch ein bischen Deutsch. Parla anche un pocho Italiano e abla tambien un po Espanol.

If I am not available to guide you, one of the super experienced guides in my team - Rok, Peter, Grega or Igor - will be your guide.

Mitja was an amazing guide and especially a great companion on this tour. Mitja was easy to communicate with when planning the trip, well reflected about conditions and honest about best possibilities on how to spend these days in Slovenia. Mitja is a caring character giving all of us a feeling of beeing welcome on the tour. He adjusts his walking & skiing to group capabilities and is flexible with any planning - you get the feeling that it is "your tour". He knows the terrain extremely well and will share a lot of information about the surroundings. He took us to amazing sunsetting spots just next to Triglav Mountain for a last decent of the day and is only one of two guides having stored equipment in the remote mountain hut in the middle of Triglav National Park. Mitja is fun and communicative and easy to get a connection with. However he also leaves space for any character and does not try to "entertain" continuously which we highly appreciated. We can absolutely recommend and to reach out to Mitja for any trip in the Alps and in Triglav National Park especially. All the best from Germany, Lukas & Martin

Actually, due to the weather conditions, there are no ice for climbing. Mitja was very nice to offer us other options. We chose hiking in snow near Vogel instead. Mitja was very nice and professional. He provide sufficient gears and useful advice. Walking in snow was hard to balance, and the wind was very strong upside. But the view was magnificent and worthy. It was a very unique experience!

Our guide Matea was very knowledgeable and personable. Even with varrying levels of experience and abilities within our group, Matea was able to make it an enjoyable experience for all. I am very thankful for his leadership and recommendations and decisions as a guide to keep us safe and make the hike as successful as it could be.

Fantastic all around. Mitja was a great communicator. Our guide Matic was patient (I'm a slow hiker so we did a private group my husband and I) and also motivating. I felt extremely safe throughout the hike with Matic taking into account the changing weather conditions and our physical condition to make it a really enjoyable accomplishment. I highly recommend!!
