Winter Alpine Climbing Course in Slovenia
Winter alpine climbing course in Slovenia

In this winter alpine climbing course in Slovenia, Tomaz, an IFMGA mountain guide, will take you to challenging terrains in the Julian Alps and the Kamnik Alps.


Julian Alps

5 Days

Jan - Mar, Dec


In this 5-day winter climbing course in Slovenia you’ll learn how to move safely in challenging terrains, like winter mountains and icefalls.

The mountains of the Julian Alps and the Kamnik Alps will be the wonderful scenery for this course.

Depending on your previous experience and your preferences, we can focus more on snow and mixed routes or in ice climbing. 

The first option may include climbing Mount Triglav, whereas the other one will take you to some amazing ice routes.

My objective is that you feel safe in a winter mountaineering environment. I’ll teach you how to walk with crampons and use an ice axe. Besides, you’ll learn about avalanches and orientation.

I recommend this winter course not only for beginners but also for those who are already familiar with winter mountaineering and want to improve their skills or learn some extra tricks.

After this, you will be prepared to face new challenges in the mountains. Furthermore, you will be able to check first hand why Slovenia is an ice climbing paradise!

About the guide

Mountain Guide

I was born in 1970 in Slovenia and I'm an IFMGA mountain guide since 2003. I started climbing when I was 15 years old at a local climbing club. Since then I became an ambitious and skilled alpinist, having accomplished numerous first ascents in Tien Shan, Himalaya, and Patagonia, and climbed extensively (over 900 alpine routes) in the Himalayas, the Alps, and in both Americas, at the same time working as a full time teacher in Slovenia!

In 2003 I became a full time mountain guide, and since then I've been guiding clients to the hidden gems of Slovenia and other Alpine summits all over Europe. In 2009, I also became the first Slovenian to guide clients up Mt Everest.

I would like to guide and show you the beauties of the hidden areas of Slovenian mountains, let it be in the Julian Alps or Kamnik Alps, away from the crowds. The mountains here are quite steep and dramatic, with sharp ridges, big faces and nice paths in between with some grassy meadows.

Here, it is an ideal field for hut to hut ski touring or free ride day tours or alpinism. It's also an ideal training ground for alpinism courses.

What people are saying about this trip



It was great to have Tomaz show us the mountains surrounding Ljubljana, he is a great guide. As clients we should have indicated better what we wanted out of the trip in order to make the most of it. Building the level of intensity during the week is important and something you should not underestimate. The winter course was a little difficult to make happen as the conditions were not ideal. All in all a fantastic trip during which we learned lots from Tomaz
