Triglav 4-day guided splitboarding traverse

Triglav 4-day guided splitboarding traverse | Slovenia

Join a guide from the Mitja Šorn Team for 4 days on the only real hut-to-hut splitboarding traverse in Slovenia, around Mount Triglav.

Not specified

Julian Alps

4 Days

Jan - Apr

Occasional

Beginner


Description

I invite you to join me in the only real hut to hut splitboarding traverse in Slovenia, around Mount Triglav. Many mountain huts are closed during winter. But we will spend two nights in different mountain huts and one in a winter room in Prehodavci, equipped with food, gas and blankets (so we don’t need to carry anything extra).

This trip goes across the Julian Alps, from Bohinj to Mojstrana, at the bottom of the highest mountain in the country: Mount Triglav. We will make the whole traverse off the beaten tracks. In fact, we should not see anybody during the 4 days.

The itinerary goes through the Triglav National Park almost entirely.

You need to have at least some prior splitboarding experience. But you don’t need to be a really good snowboarder to join this tour. We might use crampons and ice axe when going up slopes of 40°. You should be able to go down 30° slopes. Skiers are also welcome.

I know the region and the National Park very well.  I will make sure you come back home safely.  I will also share with you many stories and information about the area, the local culture, the landscapes and mountains surrounding us during the trip.

So please get in touch with me for any additional information and if you want to book this tour with me.

Or you can also check other trips I guide around this area, like my 1+day splitboarding tour in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia or my Julian Alps 4-day guided tour with splitboard.

Mountain Guide

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.

We booked a weekend trip to summit the Triglav. Mitja was very kind and helpful from the start (even before the trip, he was very responsive and helpful through e-mail). We were kindly picked up early in the morning and brought back the second day. Mitja was very communicative from the start, checking in if we we're doing okay and if the pace was good and answering all our questions. We could tell that Mitja had a lot of experience in the mountains and as a guide, which made us feel comfortable and safe from the start. It was great to have two guides at the summit as we we're a group of three. This was our first experience summiting in the winter and it was a great one. Thank you so much Mitja and team for making this amazing experience possible!

Mitja was an amazing guide and especially a great companion on this tour. Mitja was easy to communicate with when planning the trip, well reflected about conditions and honest about best possibilities on how to spend these days in Slovenia. Mitja is a caring character giving all of us a feeling of beeing welcome on the tour. He adjusts his walking & skiing to group capabilities and is flexible with any planning - you get the feeling that it is "your tour". He knows the terrain extremely well and will share a lot of information about the surroundings. He took us to amazing sunsetting spots just next to Triglav Mountain for a last decent of the day and is only one of two guides having stored equipment in the remote mountain hut in the middle of Triglav National Park. Mitja is fun and communicative and easy to get a connection with. However he also leaves space for any character and does not try to "entertain" continuously which we highly appreciated. We can absolutely recommend and to reach out to Mitja for any trip in the Alps and in Triglav National Park especially. All the best from Germany, Lukas & Martin

Actually, due to the weather conditions, there are no ice for climbing. Mitja was very nice to offer us other options. We chose hiking in snow near Vogel instead. Mitja was very nice and professional. He provide sufficient gears and useful advice. Walking in snow was hard to balance, and the wind was very strong upside. But the view was magnificent and worthy. It was a very unique experience!

Our guide Matea was very knowledgeable and personable. Even with varrying levels of experience and abilities within our group, Matea was able to make it an enjoyable experience for all. I am very thankful for his leadership and recommendations and decisions as a guide to keep us safe and make the hike as successful as it could be.
