Slovenia offers only one option to go on a ski touring trip from hut to hut, especially since most huts remain closed during the winter. It will be around Mount Triglav, Slovenia’s highest peak (2864 m), in the Julian Alps. Several paths are possible. Here is one where I like to guide my friends and clients.
If you choose to come on this ski touring trip, you will stay far from the crowds, which in my opinion is a great advantage. Depending on your wishes and availability, I can build a 3- or a 6-days long program.
I propose the following program as a 6-day example for this trip in the Julian Alps.
Cable car to the Vogel ski resort. From the ski resort, we ski down to Suha meadow and then ascend Rodica, one of the most famous ski touring mountains in Slovenia.
We will leave the crowds at the ski resort behind and enjoy the loneliness for the next few days. Today, we are going to do the first section of the original Triglav traverse from Vogel to Komna. We will then sleep in the comfortable hut on Komna plateau.
From Komna we will cross Bogatin sadle towards Krn lakes. Then, we will ascend one of the peaks above the lakes (Krn, Batognica, Vrh nad Peski…) and descend back down to the hut by the Krn lakes.
From Krn lakes, we will ascend Velika Baba and descend to the valley of the seven lakes. On the top of the valley we will find shelter at Prehodavci hut. This hut is not as comfortable as the previous two, but it will be open just for our group. They have no heating in the rooms, but there is limited heating in the dining room.
From Prehodavci, we will ascend Kanjavec (2569 m), the highest ski touring peak in Slovenia. From the top, one of the best skiing of the trip is offered, down to the valley Velo polje. Then, we will have to ascend to Triglavski dom Kredarica. In this hut only the dining room is warm, while the rooms are cold.
A great finale is waiting for us. The ascent to the Triglav summit is something that many of guests want to experience. As the final ascent requires some technical skills, it is optional. One guide can take up to two persons max, so there is €150 per person extra charge to ascend it. The guests who decide to climb it will have to wake up earlier that day, so the rest of the group won’t wait for us for too long. Once we are back from the top, the skiing will be waiting for us. The descend to Krma valley is again one of the most classic ski tours in Slovenia.
Interested in experiencing this great hut to hut traverse in the Julian Alps? Then please get in touch with me! I will be happy to discuss the details with you and propose a program that fulfills your expectations.
We will sleep in mountain huts.
- Half board in mountain huts cca 50€ per person per night
- Guides fee 250€ per day
- Transfers cca 100€ per group
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.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
