Description

If you are an advanced skier and have a solid background in ski touring and mountaineering, this program is suitable for you!

During this 6-day ski touring advanced course in Slovenia we will focus on technical skiing lines with the use of crampons and ice axes. Furthermore, I’d like to teach you some basic knots techniques as well as the use of climbing gear. Besides that, you will improve your rappelling skills and learn all the secrets about avalanche management and how to prepare anchors on ice.

In order to take the best from this trip, we can use the bad-weather days for those theoretical lessons. In that way, we’ll take advantage of the days with good weather for skiing and exploring the terrains.

If you’re wondering why this course runs in Slovenia, let me tell you there is no better place for the practice of ski touring. Slovenia is a small country with the feature of having easy-accessible big mountains. Moreover, here you will find every kind of terrain. Most of it is unspoiled thanks to the protection of the Triglav National Park.

Bled will be our base during these 6 days of ski touring advanced course. I think it is the best place due to its proximity to the Central Julian Alps and Karavanke Range, two amazing skiing spots. The accommodation in Bled will be in a familiar lodge. It includes breakfast and local meals for dinner.

If you want to know more details of this learning program, please find the complete itinerary at the bottom of this description.

Skiing and mountaineering are my way of life. That’s why I think that passion is what drives me chasing the best snow options season after season. Furthermore, I believe it is the key of being a true skier.

If you agree, do not hesitate and contact me now. It’s your opportunity to give the big step and become an expert!

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival

Transfer from the airport to Bled. After you get settled you can explore the great surroundings.

Day 2: Vogel Ski Resor

I will find the best terrain and snow conditions for the day, taking into account the group level and weather. We head to Vogel Ski Resort, an ideal place for starting the course and knowing each other. You can do a 1-hour or a full-day ski tour and enjoy the steep runs. This day will be dedicated to renew your knowledge on avalanche safety. So that I will offer a great workshop to practice the Avalanche Rescue Training (ART). Besides that, you will also practice your current skills on a multi-burial polygon (simulator).

Day 3 to 6: Days 3 to 6

As I said, I will make day to day decisions where to go. In the evenings, you will have a briefing on what your next day goals will be. There are always several options to choose. They will depend on climate conditions and your own skills. So we can decide on what to choose together.

Day 7: Transfer back to the airport


About the guide

guide profile img

I grew up in Slovenia with Julian Alps as my backyard. Expeditions to Himalaya started when I was 17, started steep skiing at 15, climbing big walls at 13 and it was a natural progression to BASE jump and to become a mountain guide- a job that feeds my soul. I have been to several climbing expeditions to Peru, Kyrgyzstan, Tibet, Nepal and India.

I'm an IFMGA qualified mountain guide as well as an instructor for future guides, ski instructor, certified helicopter operator and a Heli Ski guide. Although my work took me all over the world my favorite place is still in the Julian Alps. Sharing the hidden places in my Home Mountains with my clients, guiding and teaching them to explore on their own is has been my biggest passion for the past few years.

Mountains are my passion. Winter or summer, climbing, flying through the air or skiing, it doesn't matter to me if I am guiding or having fun with friends. I simply get spaced out when I am in the mountains. Guiding for me is not a job - it is a state of mind and a lifestyle.
