Description

If you are thrilled with the idea of venturing beyond ski resorts, you should join this 1-week ski touring trip in the best locations of the Southern Alps.

We'll visit different spots in Slovenia, Italy and Austria, finding great opportunities for off-piste skiing, mountaineering and -of course- ski touring.

All this, surrounded by the idyllic scenery and amazing views of the Julian Alps, the Karavanke mountains, the Hohe Tauern and the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.

Some of the reasons that make this a great trip
  • The unique sense of freedom while skiing untracked powder.

  • Avoiding crowded ski resorts.

  • Reaching less-traveled places, like hidden valleys and incredible peaks.

  • Finding the best snow conditions

  • Feeling completely safe, as you'll be with a professional and experienced IFMGA mountain guide.

Some of the places for ski touring in the Southern Alps
  • Viševnik: an attractive and fairly easy ski tour in a popular peak of Slovenia, above Pokljuka plateau.

  • Rodica: a lift-accessed ski tour on one of Slovenia's highest peaks near Vogel ski resort.

  • Nad Šitom Glava: an easy access skiing area in Slovenia, near Vršič pass.

  • Pod Kriško steno: there are usually great conditions for ski touring in this spot near Kranjska gora.

  • Škrbina nad Cijanerico: a beautiful Italian location for ski touring, close to Sella Nevea.

  • Dobratsch: a 2000-meter peak in Austria, with moderate slopes to ski right after snowfall.

We'll choose the locations according to snow and weather conditions.

Besides, you'll receive ski touring training. So this trip is great if you are looking for a first ski touring experience. You'll learn skiing techniques for different terrains and types of snow, as well as abseiling skills and how to test snow stability.

Would you like to come with me for an unforgettable ski experience in the Southern Alps? Please, send a request so we can start planning this adventure!

I also offer many other trips in this area outside the winter season, like a 1-week mountaineering trip in Grossglockner, the highest peak in Austria.

About the guide

I am a Slovenian IFMGA mountain guide with the ZGVS.
It was when I was 12 years old that I first climbed a mountain myself and by the age of 15 I had started rock climbing.
Since then, my ascents count up to around 1000, starting from Mont Blanc in the seventies and Triglav north face to Cho Oyu, and all over South America including 18 of the 6000m+ peaks including a first ascent on south face of Aconcagua.

I have climbed and travelled all over the world, Shivlinga, K2, Mt Everest, Manaslu, Shishi Panama, El Cap and sport climbing in Kalymnos and Cuba.

Skiing powder in great conditions and rock climbing under the sun are my motto!

Contact me if you'd like to have fun safely in the mountains with me! If I am unavailable then my trusted friend guides, Franc and Milan, can take care of you!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next 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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
