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.
