Highlights

 
     

    The Triglav National Park is located in the Julian Alps in Slovenia. Vogel is one of the most famous ski resorts in the Park. On this off piste snowboarding trip you will be able to choose the duration of the tour and explore some of the top slopes in the region.

    There are many different opportunities to enjoy the snow in the region. Consequently, whether you are an advanced snowboarder or looking to gain some more experience, I can show you to the right spot. Also, you can choose how many days your snowboarding tour will last.

    A typical tour day begins with a pick up at your hotel. After we get to the mountain,  we will ascend on a cableway. Then, we will spend the day snowboarding from 9am- 4pm. I will also show you some avalanche rescue techniques.  Finally, the van will take you back to the hotel.

    This is an excellent opportunity for all snowboard enthusiasts, and will also give you the experience of the beautiful Slovenia winter wilderness!

    Are you ready for a snowboarding adventure in Slovenia? Then book your place now and join me on a snowboarding excursion in Vogel, inside the Triglav National Park!

    I also offer an 8-day hut to hut tour in the Julian Alps!

    About the 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.

    I had a fantastic time on this climb; it was pushing my limits but I felt well looked after by Marco, who was professional and friendly throughout the trip. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

    We signed up for a winter climb of Triglav and a half-day of ice-climbing for my family of 4 (including 15 & 16 year old children). We achieved neither objective. We had travelled from Australia. We had previously winter-climbed Morocco\'s Mt Toubkal and we are an adventurous family, but are not mountaineers. The Triglav description stated it was technical but appropriate for beginners. The equipment list stated \'Shoes (high hiking boots recommended)\'. On booking, Mitja told me he was unavailable but that his colleague Luka would guide us. One week prior to the trip, I emailed expressing concerns with some of our footwear, as two of us did not have high hiking boots. We were willing to buy them and wanted to seek advice. The weather was looking stable, warm, and no snow had fallen for at least one week. Luka asked me to send photos of what footwear we had. I did that and he replied that none were suitable, and that we all needed 600 Euro mountaineering boots. I was surprised given the equipment list. Over the next few days he suggested the climb was quite technical and said things like \'Do you have any experience with this kind of mountaineering?\' I began to get nervous especially for my wife and daughter. I sought clarity but never really received it. Correspondence became patchy. New Years Eve was upon us and we still had no clarity, and shops were closing. Then climbing pants with ventilation were mentioned. At this point we were looking at spending upwards of $4000 AUD on equipment for a climb that might be beyond us. So we pulled the pin. Luka took us instead on a two day alpine trek and we achieved two summits near 2000m. It was pleasant. However we carried ice picks the entire time but never once took them off our packs (except for a brief lesson). At one point we traversed a 40-50 degree slope on crunching snow with a long fall - but for some reason our ice picks stayed attached to our packs. It was kind of scary. When he proposed a second, similar, traverse we declined and took a safer downhill route instead. The hut we stayed in, Lipanca Hut, was pleasant, warm and uncrowded. On the third day we were meant to go ice climbing however the facility was closed due to warm weather. Luka instead took us rock climbing which was good fun. My two comments, however, is that we all had to wear helmets the entire time but Luka did not; in my mind this is a failure in leading by example. Also we started with the hardest climb and worked towards the easiest; that\'s because the easier climbs were in use when we arrived, which would have been fine if it was explained to us but it wasn\'t until the end of the day. I struggled on the first climb but made it, however it left me feeling initially bad that I had struggled so much on what I expected to be a more gentle start. Anyway despite all that it was a pleasant 3 days. It was just not what we had signed up for.
