Enjoy some fantastic hut to hut ski touring in the Slovenian Julian Alps, around Mount Triglav, with a guide from the Mitja Sorn team.
Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr
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.

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.

Our guide Luka did an amazing job! He was calm, confident and experienced. His support helped us achieve a brilliant climb up Triglav. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
Too much snow and avalanche risk cancelled the climb to the top of Mt Triglav. However, Mitja Sorn Guiding Team provided alternate hiking and climbing options, which were challenging, exciting and safe.
It was an amazing week with an amazing guide > Mitja ! Why ? Because he was all the week looking to the best option regarding the weather forcast changing, listing to my wishes ! He was also pushing a lot ! And that was for me the priority :-) I'll be back Mitja ! C.
Our guide was Martin Zumer and Martin did a wonderfull job. Martin's guiding is very professional and you feel always safe and in good hands. On the other hands Martin leaves you enough space to unfold your own abilities and ideas, not controlling more than is necessary for safety reasons. I personaly like this kind of approach. Martin took also great care for us after the touring, cooking in the winter room, helping us finding a good restaurant and accommodation. The whole group of five guests from Austria and Switzerland - all quite experienced and ambitious skiers - had a perfect experience during our four days tour. Thank you Martin!

Mitja is a great man. The only problem was that there was no fresh powder. For sure we’ll be back in Vogel.

Due to weather conditions, we had to go skiing in Nassfeld. We were very satisfied with the guidance, instructions and help from our guide/instructor Mitja. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in freeride skiing or ski touring in Slovenia, Italy, or Austria. Mitja is a great man and an excellent skier!
I’ve made a three day course with Uroš and couldn’t be happier. It was very fun, and with a great amount of informations. Uroš has a very extensive knowledge of snow, weather and mountaineering techniques, and it’s a great guy to chat to in the mountains too. The tours we made were a great testing ground and with the right amount of difficulties to test new skills. Highly recommend. *****
I had a great time climbing Mt Triglav with Urôs. It’s definitely been a climbing highlight for me, so I can recommend him and the company he works for. If you’re wanting a safe, well organised and friendly service, I don’t think you can look past these guys. I’d happily use Mitja and Urôs again.
Disliked this tour. And don't like the way the guys/guides are communicating.
Mitja was fantastic as a guide. Very communicative, accommodating, and always ensured you were doing alright. Weather was not the most pleasant but Mitja clearly knows the mountain very well and how to guide you safely up and down the mountain safely despite heavy snow and winds
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!
