Description

Would you like to feel more confident in your freeride skiing or snowboarding experiences? Then join me for an avalanche safety workshop at the Vogel Ski Resort!

Located an hour away from Ljubljana, the Vogel is one of the most famous ski resorts in  Slovenia. It stands above the Bohinj Valley, next to Lake Bohinj, and its nearest city is Bled. Opened in 1964, this area offers more than 30kms of pistes, and a huge terrain for powder descents.

This day course is ideal for snowboarders and backcountry skiers. We will focus on avalanche training.  The Vogel Resort offers a multi-burial simulation polygon that is perfect to understand the real dynamics of avalanches. We will work on: planning a freeride skiing or snowboarding trip, the necessary equipment and its usage, how to recognize snow conditions, and safety protocols. The most important thing is that you will be able to test what you have learned!

Keep in mind that for this course you will need to be at an intermediate or advanced level. I strongly recommend it for anyone who wants to take their skiing and snowboarding to the next level and plan more challenging adventures!

So book your place now and I will teach you what I know on this avalanche safety workshop in the Slovenian Vogel Ski Resort!

I also offer freeride skiing and snowboarding trips in this same area. Check them out.

About the 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.

Great service from both Explore-Share and Mitja Sorn Guiding Team. Mita introduced me to my Guide Uros who kept me up to date and informed about the climbing situation due to weather. Due to limited availability of time and good weather, we opted for a day climb. It was a very long day, but thoroughly enjoyable despite the limited views. Uros was very knowledgeable of Triglav and the national park and we had some great conversations. A fantastic experience and totally recommend Mitja and his guiding team. Thank you!

Bonjour à tous, Un petit commentaire en français pour nos amis francophone : Super guide et organisation au top, il connaît la montagne et la région comme sa poche. Le rythme de montée était plutôt cool peut être plus lent que ce qu’on aurait fait naturellement mais il ne faut pas oublier qu’il y a 1500m de dénivelé positif sur 7,5 km jusqu’au gîte d’altitude, une montée de 5h qui s’est passé dans la bonne humeur en papotant. Quelques superbes point de vue sur la vallée et pas de difficultés particulières et Mitja fait les explications d’usage et répond à toutes les questions sur la région. Il parle de nombreuses langues mais pas le français, son anglais est impeccable avec une pointe d’accent locale. L’arrivée au gîte donne un superbe panorama, petite déconvenue plus d’eau depuis 8 jours dans le gîte, je vous laisse deviner ce que cela signifie niveau toilette. Étant partie tôt nous sommes arrivée vers 13h petite pause repas et ascension finale a 14h00 Pour des questions de sécurité nous avons été séparé en deux groupes de 4 en cordée avec un guide supplémentaire. Je vais être clair c’est le grand moment de la journée, via ferrata 400m de dénivelé sur 1,5km dont la moitié de crête, l’ascension est spectaculaire et physique, c’est totalement incroyable. Nous avons eu la change d’être avec un couple de super grimpeur et un guide qui a compris que l’on avait envie d’être challengé l’ascension a été faite en 50min contre 1h30/1h45 en moyenne on s’est régalé. Une fois en haut sensation d’accomplissement personnel et un panorama totalement mérité que seul votre sueur peut vous offrir. PS : un gars vend des boissons en haut (6 euros) il monte des dizaine de bières, panaché et coca. Repas dans le gîte rien à dire on mange bien Mitja s’occupe de tout on se laisse porter. La nuit dans le gîte et bien c’est une nuit en gîte quoi (propre rien à dire et tout le monde respectueux). Le lendemain descente en 3h20 pour les plus rapides et habitués, Mitja a pris soin de ceux un peu en difficulté sur la descente. Super souvenir, une bonne première approche de la moyenne montagne, cela permet de savoir de quoi on est capable. IMPORTANT Après en avoir discuté avec les autres si les conditions météo les permettent et si Mitja le propose faite vous violence même si vous etes un peu fatigué et faite l’ascension finale dès le premier jour. Le lendemain la nuit en gîte ne vous ayant pas vraiment reposé et quelques courbatures et/douleurs apparaissant vous n’aurait pas le même plaisir et vous subirez la descente sur sol glissant. De plus vous êtes en bas vers 12h donc vous avez le temps de profiter de votre après midi :) Merci à Mitja et au super petit groupe avec qui nous avons grimpé. Maintenant on va viser un somment à 3500 ça donne trop envie. Amis grimpeurs avertis même si vous avez un peu d’expérience, la montagne est toujours un risque un guide le limite donc ne jouer pas avec votre sécurité et faites vous encadrer. Est ce que nous aurions pu le faire seul ? Oui sûrement. Est ce que nous aurions pris autant de plaisir : NON clairement, là nous avons pu débrancher le cerveau et simplement profiter cela change tout. ++ Emilie et Steve

We had a fantastic trip up Triglav with Igor from the Mitja Sorn guiding team. Communications in advance while we were organising the trip were very responsive with all of our questions answered. We were told exactly what to pack in advance, which was really helpful, and we were very impressed with how well organised everything was to get us up the top in the best weather conditions (which given the changeable weather was quite an achievement). Igor was clearly a very experienced guide and made us all feel very safe on the trip. The Triglav mountain hut was extremely comfortable though you might consider taking ear plugs if you are kept awake by noise. We would have no hesitation recommending this guiding team to anyone else contemplating a Triglav ascent during their visit to Slovenia.

We climbed Triglav mountain with our kids of 11 and 14 years old. Our guide turned out to be Blaz and this couldn't have been better. Such as nice normal guy with so much experience. It was fun with him, lots of info and it felt really safe so we could relax and enjoy the climb and descent. Explore -share was a good way to get in contact with the professionals we needed on this trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Mitja is a top guide! He made us wake up early (4am), so we could do the climb all the way up in the morning/at noon the first day to have the best views (in the late afternoon and next day rain announced). He keeps on motivating you during the climb and makes you feel safe all the time (it was our first time via ferrata). If you are in good physical condition, you can easily do the climb. The hut is very basic. But everything is arranged by Mitja, so you just need to 'relax' and enjoy. Thank you for the experience!

We are very pleased to have met Martin. He was like a father to us. Better than a father, a friend. We’ve been happy and working with a smile that Martin put in our faces. He had a good idea: invert the Triglav ski trip, because the 4° day had bad wheather Forecast. Then, first Triglav . On the last day, he proved this professional skills by guiding us through the fog by a karstic terrain, sometimes without using ski tracks. We’d be delighted to have him again and would be happy to repeat this whenever possible

Did not end up doing the traverse but opted for day tours. Mitja was very flexible as well as knowledgeable and really knew the area so we had the best of the conditions to suit our needs. Highly recommended and would use Mitja without hesitation for future trips to the mountains of Slovenia. We had a great time.

Fantastic experience climbing Mount Triglav with outstanding mountain guide Mitja Sorn. It was my first winter ascent and ski touring experience but Mitja made it an enjoyable experience despite challenging conditions with strong winds and freezing temperatures. He knows these mountains like his own back pocket and is able to maximize the experience without taking undue risks. Truly a great experience.

We had a fantastic climb with Mitja. He is a great guide - we felt 100% safe - but and he is a good companion too. The climb itself was magnificent, also thanks to our luck with weather - good timing is essential. We caught a sunny day with a perfect snow on a weekday in November, and had the summit all for ourselves.

I had Uroš Grilj as a guide for a 7-day hike and I recommend him wholeheartedly. He is highly skilled and competent. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, for which I had no previous experience and which were nonetheless perfectly comfortable and fun, entirely thanks to him. He constantly adapted the routes to my level and the weather conditions, checked in on me and discussed the options for the next days with me. He is also a very nice person and it was a pleasure to talk to and learn from him. Thank you very much, Uroš!

Was a really nice trip. Definitely worth the money if you have never done Via Ferrata or climbing in general. The guides were really nice and very professional. The hike to the hut was steep and difficult but when you have a good fitness it is doable. The part from the hut to the top looks scarier than it actually is. We felt very safe and secure all throughout. Special thanks to Nejc and Luka!

I climbed 2 days with Mitja. He is a great guy, really friendly and helpful in addition to being an exceptional climber. Although I am an experienced (old) climber injuries have limited my outdoor climbing the past 2 years. Mitja found single and multi pitch routes with beautiful scenery where I could lead and follow him on routes beyond my limitations. I heartily recommend him as a guide

It was honestly enjoyable having Tadej with us for the entirety of the hike.

I will be happy to rate 6 stars for Mitja and the team’s professional service as well as their enthusiasm and efforts to introduce Slovenia’s nature to travelers despite the fact that the industry is hugely impacted by the current pandemic.

The guide Matej is a lovely and proficient guy who especially understands how to adapt to fit the needs of different people and varying levels in a larger group. He is a very caring and solicitous guide and is a lot of fun to hang out with. The booking process however is a bit confusing. We had to communicate on various channels while receiving too many emails being contradictory at times.

We had a great time with Mitja climbing mount Triglav. At first we were a bit worried we were not fit enough but after an hour of walking Mitja told us we would be fine, and he was right. We had a lot of fun and Mitja talked us through everything. We went to the mountain hut and did the final climb on the same day because of the weather forecast for the next day. There was one part at the beginning of the climb from the mountain hut where we were really scared because we were struggling. Because it was early in the season we had to do a steep snow climb before getting to the Via Ferrata. I'm glad Mitja pushed us to go further because at that moment we were ready to give up. On the Via Ferrata section everything went fine.

We signed up for a winter climb of Triglav and a half-day of ice-climbing for my family of 4 (including 15 & 16 year old children). We achieved neither objective. We had travelled from Australia. We had previously winter-climbed Morocco's Mt Toubkal and we are an adventurous family, but are not mountaineers. The Triglav description stated it was technical but appropriate for beginners. The equipment list stated 'Shoes (high hiking boots recommended)'. On booking, Mitja told me he was unavailable but that his colleague Luka would guide us. One week prior to the trip, I emailed expressing concerns with some of our footwear, as two of us did not have high hiking boots. We were willing to buy them and wanted to seek advice. The weather was looking stable, warm, and no snow had fallen for at least one week. Luka asked me to send photos of what footwear we had. I did that and he replied that none were suitable, and that we all needed 600 Euro mountaineering boots. I was surprised given the equipment list. Over the next few days he suggested the climb was quite technical and said things like 'Do you have any experience with this kind of mountaineering?' I began to get nervous especially for my wife and daughter. I sought clarity but never really received it. Correspondence became patchy. New Years Eve was upon us and we still had no clarity, and shops were closing. Then climbing pants with ventilation were mentioned. At this point we were looking at spending upwards of $4000 AUD on equipment for a climb that might be beyond us. So we pulled the pin. Luka took us instead on a two day alpine trek and we achieved two summits near 2000m. It was pleasant. However we carried ice picks the entire time but never once took them off our packs (except for a brief lesson). At one point we traversed a 40-50 degree slope on crunching snow with a long fall - but for some reason our ice picks stayed attached to our packs. It was kind of scary. When he proposed a second, similar, traverse we declined and took a safer downhill route instead. The hut we stayed in, Lipanca Hut, was pleasant, warm and uncrowded. On the third day we were meant to go ice climbing however the facility was closed due to warm weather. Luka instead took us rock climbing which was good fun. My two comments, however, is that we all had to wear helmets the entire time but Luka did not; in my mind this is a failure in leading by example. Also we started with the hardest climb and worked towards the easiest; that's because the easier climbs were in use when we arrived, which would have been fine if it was explained to us but it wasn't until the end of the day. I struggled on the first climb but made it, however it left me feeling initially bad that I had struggled so much on what I expected to be a more gentle start. Anyway despite all that it was a pleasant 3 days. It was just not what we had signed up for.

Unfortunately due to bad weather we had to turn around at 1900m on Triglav. It snowed heavy the day before the climb so the snow was also over a meter deep. Fortunately Mitja planned another mountain Mali Draski which we were able to summit. This was a great experience and I got the chance to use my ice axe and crampons which was just what I wanted. Mitja was a great guide who passes on his knowledge and teaches you things along the way. He has incredible knowledge and understanding of the mountains in the area and will keep you safe throughout.

I had an absolutely amazing couple of days climbing Mount Triglav in winter and I can not thank my guide Mitja enough for making it such a great experience. His knowledge, experience, encouragement and enthusiasm made an ascent not only possible but also a pleasure. Triglav was incredible! The views from the summit were breathtaking, the National Park was beautiful, and I will be returning in the New Year. Thank you very much Mitja, thank you explore-share.

Good information on the Explore-share website and help finding an available guide. Got in direct touch with guide very fast and were able to get all answers as to verify that this was the right trip for me. Had to change dates by one day due to weather changes, but this is to be expected in mountain regions. Ended up climbing in beautiful weather with very professional, calm and safe guide Igor Kremser. Overall a good experience from finding the trip, all communications and of course the trip itself. Thanks!

It would have been helpful to have him lead group introductions before we got started and also provide a small briefing of the timeline, itinerary, mileage, and how meals and payments would work. In the future, it would be a good idea to ensure the registrants have experience with mountain hiking and a general level of fitness. Two members of our group were clearly unprepared for what the trek would entail. Perhaps in the future, it would be good to either have the meals at the mountain hut included in the trip cost or allow the registrants to purchase food completely separately from the guide (instead of having the guide organize this). Both the hike and the summit climb were incredible! I appreciate Igor and Luca’s patience in ensuring the safest timing for summiting, and I also appreciate Igor allowing some of the group members to run ahead when some of the others were moving slowly. Overall, it was a great trip. I would recommend this to any of my hiker friends!

I don't properly understand Explore Share's role here. I just wanted to use a small local guiding company and I was forced to do booking through Explore Share. And finally third party, Kofler Sport took care of guiding. Kofler Sport and especially Greg's job was excellent.

Vi havde Igor Kremser som guide. Han var meget kompetent, vidende og havde et godt humør. Både voksne og vores 2 teenagere ville vælge Igor igen til enhver tid som vores guide. Turen op på Triglav er spændene, tilpas hård og overnatningen i hytten er en oplevelse værd. Vi er glade for, at vi havde købt de ting som stod på listen vi fik tilsendt. Specielt gode støvler, vandrestave, handsker og en god rygsæk anbefales. Der står i beskrivelsen, at Igor er aspirant - tag ikke fejl han er yderst professionel og en hyggelig fyr, at tilbringe et par dage med. Vi satte stor pris på, at han hentede os i Kranjska Gora i sin bil. Vi havde overvejer om en guide var nødvendig... det gør oplevelsen meget bedre og større . Tag en tur på Triglav med Igor - du vil ikke fortryde det

To be frank we didn't really got what we wanted. We got Igor as a guide but he acted more of a babysitter rather than a true guide for us. The climb up to Triglav is not safe and we wanted a guide to ease the planning bc we didn't have enough time to prepare, and maximize safety while keeping our wishes in focus. We are not the easiest folks to guide as we are used to do stuff on our own. The guide does a good job if your only concern is safety and you're willing to blind trust people and not asking questions. He will drag you to the top and back. One big mistake he did, he never asked what we expected he never gave directions, or explanations, we only got to follow instructions and got short answers when we asked. We needed to challenge him at the end to get what we wanted and then he wasn't happy about it. We understand why, but we needed something else than we got until that point. The other thing is that we had an unfriendly guide in a hurry on the way down from the hut, day2. For us that hike would have been better without him. When it's said he did everything he was expected to do by himself fine (apart from day2), nice service at the hut and otherwise.

Blaz was always in touch with the meteorologists and could tell what the weather was gonna do so he kept us out of thunder storms. One of the best things we have ever done. Thank you so much for this great experience!

Mitja was fantastic!!! Very proffesional and obviously very knowlegeable in the area and the climb. He was very patient with me being a beginner in climbing and helpful when I was having difficulty in parts of the track. I feel like we could not have chosen a better guide. A great guy as well. We did have a little issue with the start time/date of our hike. I’m not sure if that was to do with the timezone in the southern hemisphere when we booked our climb. Thanks for the unforgettable experience. Mary and Mick

We first hesitated to take a guide. We are both young fit people but don't have experience in hiking a mountain. But wauw were we glad we had Mitja! He made sure we were safe the whole time (and that wasn't always a giving (thunder storm aproaching, snow so we coudn't secure ourselves on the mountain,..). We did things we couldn't have done if we hadn't had Mitja with us. Great experience. Wish we could take him to all our mountain trips!

Mitja has been an excellent guide during this trip. He knows each and every bit of the Triglav park. He also knows how to adapt the route for each group level. Being a quite good group of skiers, he took us into some steeper slopes and increased the overall descent of each day by 500m. So we achieved 1300/1500 and 1900m up during the trip. He has also a good practical sense so it can help to fix any technical problems during the trip. I highly recommend him!

We found Mitja easily – if you search for “Triglav Guides” he comes up on basically every site about Slovenian climbing. He’s been climbing in Slovenia his whole life, has been professionally guiding hikers in the Julian Alps for over ten years, and has summited the peak of Triglav over 350 times, 36 times just this year. I’ve never met someone who moves so effortlessly over loose rock and snow. Even in cumbersome crampons, he looked like he was gliding. And I’m very sure that he could climb his way up to the summit blind folded. Relinquishing control of the logistics to him made us feel comfortable and allowed us to fully enjoy the experience

Climbing Mt. Triglav with Mitja and Roks was a truly enjoyable experience for me that I would cherish forever. They are extremely organized, helpful and full of humor that made the difficult journey to the top so easy. Even though I was the slowest in the group, they made sure that I reach safely to the destination and enjoy the trek thoroughly. Mitja's repeated advice on being relaxed and not to think much over the hurdles on the path while trekking was one of the valuable takeaways. And I thank them thousand times for offering such a memorable trip in Triglav. For those who are thinking of climbing Mt. Triglav, I can reccommend Mitja and Roks anytime as guides to have a safe and comfortable journey.

Mitja is a well qualified expert guide, jbut more than that, he’s a good people-person and risk manager. While he’s introducing you to the countryside during the steadily incling walk up the former glacier/Kemal valley, he’s also assessing each of the groups’ strengths and weaknesses, forming sub-groups based on the optimal mix and the weather conditions. Even though he does this twice a week in Summer, you can tell he loves his work and interacting with people. The when we’ve arrived at the 2000m hut, he switches into safety, security and risk manager mode behind the scenes to ensure the final 800m via-feratta ascent to the summit goes without a hitch and to ensure each ‘guest’ gets maximum outcomes. To do this he uses a team of guides (Rok, Igor, etc) who take 3/4 guests and rope you together for the final climb up Triglav. I have to say, while I have a fear of heights (yet I’ve parachuted and abseiled/respelled) and my butterflies and toes were tingling all the way up, I felt very safe and secure throughout. My grand daughter was also born that day so I yelled a welcome to the world message off the top of Triglav for her. What a great day on many levels. Thx Mitja and team

Leaving climbing Mt Triglav until late 50s and my nervousness about heights are both understatements. However at all times with Mitja and his crew of expert full-time guides (Rok, Igor and another) I felt in highly experienced, safe and capable hands. We had perfect weather so walked to top hut near Triglav and summitted in one day. It was challenging, scary and highly rewarding. I was in a mixed age and abilities group of 13, some of whom were ill-prepared mentally (some delusional that they were going out for an easy two day Hill walk) and physically. But all made it to the top easily and triumphantly. Well done Mitja and guide crew. Thanks Ash

It was the first day with “autumn weather “ since summer started. Mitja tried his best to make the right decision for us about when to go to the summit. We went the first day, unfortunately without a view from the summit but it was a good decision as the next day was very windy and freezing cold. Gloves, hat, poles were provided by Mitja. He us on a different way back so we would still have a great view almost similar to the one on the top, this route was amazing! Thanks Mitja It was super!

But meeting Marco and having his expertise, harnesses, helmets and advice for the via farrata, ascent and descent of Triglav, was fantastic. We definitely felt safe and in good hands.

I didn't have an activated phone with me nor was I near wifi, but Mitja put in way more effort, than I ever would, to get a hold of me in order to set me up with another guide that was heading up to the hut later that day. My hike up the the hut with our other guide Igor was awesome, he answered all my questions and gave me lots of advice for travelling within Slovenia. Mitja was super accommodating, knowledgeable and chill. 10/10 must do, must see.

I had two very fine days in the mountains and thank’s to you for your very professional way of guiding! I really can recommend the hike up to the Triglav through the Valley of the seven lakes for anybody reasonably fit and also the way back to Blato was very nice going across the pass at Adam and Eve. It got a little exciting at the end, but I enjoyed it never the less and had great fun!

I have no comments on the guide. We were passed around between what ended up being 3 guides. I really enjoyed the climb, but I felt a bit duped and undervalued. I signed up with 1 guide after reading his profile. Then I was passed to a 2nd guide and then finally a 3rd guide with very little warning. He ended up being great, but it didn't make me feel valued. Also, I thought I had paid for the mountain hut already in the price but apparently it wasn't included. A bit of an unpleasant surprise. The rating I would give is a 4 out of 5 for the guide we had, Danilo. I will absolutely still consider Explore-Share for future adventures, so my experience wasn't soured that much.

We had a brilliant trip with Mitja climbing Triglav. He is a fantastic guide - extremely knowledgeable about Triglav and the best way to climb it. We did the whole ascent in one day, stopping at the hut for a few hours to have lunch while it rained. We then summitted in the late afternoon where the clouds cleared and we had a beautiful view. We hiked back down from the hut the next day after a lovely evening in the hut. It was a great time of year to go - less crowds and enjoyed hiking in the snow. We thoroughly recommend doing the trip with Mitja or his team, he is very experienced, friendly, considerate and made our trip even better than we had hoped. Thank you again!

Unfortunately, due to high avalanche risk, we were unable to start the Triglav traverse. Instead we enjoyed 3 day trips touring around Kranjska Gora. Mitja is a fantastic guide, going out of his way to look after us, and taking us to some great spots. On a traverse snow conditions are secondary, but for day trips I would recommend coming earlier in the season, as the snow in April was a little warm and wet even at 2400m. Slovenia is beautiful and Mitja is very highly recommended, we'll be back!

Triglav is not easy in such conditions. You need to be tough yourself. Mitja makes perfect evaluation of your physical strengths on 6h walk up to the hut. Always on top and sharing knowledge and stories from his lifetime. I would recommend to everybody with at least medium physical shape. See U soon on the summit!

Mitja is a great guide encouraging but cautious when appropriate. In our case that meant we did not do the final leg to the summit because of looming thinderstorms and the risk of lightening strikes.

The guide is really professional and friendly but the route "Salaska" has only 4 pitches of real rockclimbing.I would recommend another more technical route with the same guide.

Mitja is everything one could ask for in a guide: kind, knowledgable, friendly, and very attentive to his clients and their levels of comfort. He is loaded with all kinds of interesting facts and climbing stories and is always wearing a smile.

Mitja is an awesome guide! I felt his good energy and he patiently answered all questions. Made the hike down very interesting. Beside having 2 great days out in the mountains I also learned about the country and his profession. Highly recommended!

There was a misunderstanding from Mitjas part regarding dates and in the end he didn't guide us. That was the negative point and something like that cannot happen again. Mijta recommended his friend Borut Naglič who provided us an awesome and safe ascent to Triglav.

Mitja is very experienced with Mt Triglav, who gave us useful tips along the way to make the climb more doable. At the higher parts of the mountain where it was still snow covered, Mitja took care to dig deep little steps in the snow so that we could safely follow him. When we reached our hut at the end of the first day, Mitja told us that snow was still covering the via feratta towards the top of Triglav, and he gave us the option of taking a less dangerous path that would also give us a similar experience of walking on the mountain ridges for the next day, instead of ascending to the top. Hence even though we regrettably did not make it all the way up to the top, we really enjoyed the second day's descent, with parts where we slid down the snow in pure glee! We will definitely be back at a better season next time, and will make it to the top for sure!

We had two fantastic days at and around Triglav. The weather was perfect with almost no wind and a bright deep blue sky and it was a great experience to trek in the deep snow. Mitja did a solid job as a guide. He was knowledgeable and caring, but at the same time honest about the possibilities of the group. It is not the last time we visit the area.

Me and my friend did 2 days guided ski tours with Mitja in March 2017. We climbed Triglav, and second day Jalovec. We are both experienced ski tourers, we decided for guided tour because Julien alps are much more technically difficult than Austrian alps where we usually go. First winter ski touring in Julien alps and first guided tour in our life. Our experience with Mitja overcome expectations. He is very well organised, experienced and confident, his approach to clients very direct, honest but friendly as well. I felt safe with him in more exposed parts of our climb, and trusted his decisions and recommendations. I learned a lot about safety in mountains in general and will go with him in future again.

After an excellent experience with Mitja who led us to Triglav in summer 2016 we have decided to try also ski touring with him in February 2017. It was our first experience with ski touring at all. Mitja was able to manage all equipment and logistics for us so that we could focus on enjoying the two trips in two consecutive days. Although the weather was uncertain Mitja managed to select the locations (one around Kranjska Gora and second close to Pokljuka) where we enjoyed the tours a lot. It was simply amazing. We felt secure and can recommend Mitja as an excellent choice. Czech team: Jirka, David, Tomas, Libor

I had an amazing experience with Mitja. From the start, he was very communicative and kept me updated constantly on the weather conditions at Triglav. However, things weren't ideal so I wasn't able to get to Triglav. Despite the change in plans, Mitja went out of his way and arranged new activities he felt would suit my interests. We ended up doing a via ferrata he personally set and climbing ice falls. It was so much fun - Mitja was great to chat with and he was very knowledgable about Slovenia's geography. I enjoyed every second of our trip and would definitely contact him again for another challenge when I go back to Slovenia!

We have spent 2 awesome days on Mount Triglav in Slovenia together with Mitja. The weather was uncertain and there was still a lot of snow in some parts. If this adventure was a real success it is thanks to the professionalism of Mitja!

Mitja led us up Mt. Triglav in September 2016 and we had an amazing time. Mitja and his company were exceptionally professional at every step of the way. The team answered all of our questions promptly and prepared us well for the hike. Throughout the two days, Mitja was an attentive, knowledgeable guide. There were four of us in the group with varying experience doing a hike like this, and Mitja ensured that we were all safe and in good order throughout. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to have such a knowledgeable, skilled, thoughtful guide leading us up Triglav and I would recommend Mitja and company to anyone. You could be in no better hands.

The Triglav Traverse with Mitja was a highlight for me in winter 2016. We toured through fairytale like landscapes and skied fresh lines every day. I am still puzzled how little ski touring is popular in Slovenia so far, which allowed Mitja to lead us to many amazing places without running into other skiers. Coming from Switzerland I am used to crowds and busy huts on days with such great conditions – and I was very happy to have had this alternative Slovenian experience with so much peacefulness! Mitja kept a good eye on all members of our group of 4 people and went big lengths to make it an unforgettable experience for all of us.

I have chosen Mitja three times as my guide in the Julian Alps and now I would not consider anyone else to lead me on my trips. Mitja is friendly, highly enthusiastic and is great at keeping you feeling at ease, even on the most exposed ground. He excels at reading his clients pace and ability, moving neither too quickly or slowly. Mitja obviously has an excellent knowledge of the routes in the Julian Alps (and beyond) as well an impressive level of technical knowledge. Mitja is excellent at English, never struggling to communicate what he requires from his guests. I would not hesitate to recommend him to guide you on any route, whether it be your first via ferrata or a bold north face climb.

Climbing Mount Triglav was at the very top of my list of things to do in Slovenia and thanks in large part to Mitja the whole experience exceeded my expectations. Not only is he an incredibly experienced and versatile guide (he guides rock climbing, ice climbing and all sorts of other things as well as hikes), he's also really easy to talk to and great fun to hang out with, putting everyone instantly at ease. He was very knowledgeable about the mountain and the area too, telling us about everything from its geology, flora and fauna to how food is brought into the huts and what crazy records have been set by guides and other mountaineers attempting all sorts of feats on its slopes. Best of all was that I really felt his passion for what he does coming through. He clearly loves his job, loves meeting people and loves Slovenia. And he wants to see the outdoor tourism industry develop and thrive here. I'd recommend anyone interested in trekking Triglav give him a call. You couldn't be in better company.

I had the pleasure of being guided up Mt Mangart (via Italiana route) by Mitja Sorn in June 2015. Mitja helped me organize two climbs at short notice to fit into my travelling schedule. He was extremely professional and safe on the mountain which gave me confidence and enabled me to enjoy the experience knowing I was in great hands. Along with his professionalism he was also entertaining, happily answering questions and joking the whole day. Since the climb Mitja has been in contact at my request to recommend other climbs which my experience is suitable for and which will also challenge me. I would not hesitate to recommend Mitja to people looking for a mountain guide in the alps and have already recommended him to a few of my friends.

Mitja is an incredibly experienced climber that gave us great confidence in climbing a challenging peak for me and my brother. He was very accommodating and went over and above what's expected of him to ensure we had a memorable experience. Due to poor weather conditions he recommended we delay the start of our climb and instantly adjusted the itinerary to ensure we were not impacted whatsoever. He also took great photo shots as we were climbing the mountain!

We met in 2010 and since then we are making four or five great tours per year. Mostly in Julian Alps – magnificent mountain ridges and popular climbing routes. Mitja is an excellent climber, fast and reliable, patient with clients, but above all – he enjoys sharing the beauty of mountains with others. Once we’ re seating in restaurant after tour and drinking bear. Looking towards Mount Triglav, Mitja said : ‘Up there is my office ! I’ve the best job in the world!’ I couldn’t agree more ! And now I am making plans for four tours in this year

I have met Mitja in 2014 and have made more then 10 trips with him since then. Mostly we go on ski-touring trips in Slovenian Alps, among those the most epic was our 3-day traverse of Julian Alps, topped with winter ascent of Mt. Triglav (highest peak in Slovenia). Mitja is a very professional mountain guide, always cheerful and full of information. He is very aware of local conditions and can find best snow conditions, no matter what time of the season. Highly recommended for people who want to advance in their mountaineering skills or just have the best time in the mountains!

My experience on triglav was amazing and in no small part due to our leader Mitja Sorn who was the most confidence inspiring leader one could have followed. Mitja pitched the whole trip professionally, timely and allowed the whole group to be involved in the climb. I felt our safety was a priority from the start of our two day journey till the very end of trip. I would like to thank all of our group and your team for the most amazing two day trip.
