The Juliana SkiTour is not one long connected tour, but rather a sum of four different ski tours. With this short, but sweet ski tour itinerary you will embark on a ski touring adventure in the area of Kranjska Gora.

Each of the stages has two options to make it easier to adapt to the actual conditions in nature. Before you embark on the tour, your guide will evaluate the conditions in the mountains and decide which of the 2 options you will take.

On this tour you do not need to sleep in cold bivouac shelters high in the mountains – instead you return to the valley every day where you can have a warm shower, a comfortable bed, and a decent dinner.

Dates available for the Snowy Ski Tour Adventure programme:

  • 3 March–6 March 2022 (bookings open until 21 February)
  • 31 March–3 April 2022 (bookings open until 21 March)
  • 5 May–8 May 2022 (bookings open until 25 April)

The number of participants in the group is limited from 2 to 6 persons. The price of the programme is from 610,00 EUR per person.

Snowy Ski Tour Adventure Programme

 

DAY 1: ARRIVAL TO KRANJSKA GORA

  • Half board in a hotel in Kranjska Gora

 

DAY 2

Option A: Tour 1 KRNICA–POD KRIŠKO STENO–KRNICA (195O m ~ 9,8 km)

Ski touring pod Kriško steno is an easier ski choice within a mighty ambience, suitable as an introduction to the Juliana SkiTour. The tour follows the deep Krnica Valley, enclosed between the steep walls of Prisojnik and Razor on one side and Škrlatica, Rakova špica, and Dovški Gamsovec on the other. Ascend past the Koča v Krnici hut and further through the beech forest and increasingly sparse larch growths to the open slopes below Kriška stena. The glacial cirque pod Kriško steno, where the valley ends, is the highest point of the ski tour. Ski back freely with the most common run following the east side of the valley.

Option B: Tour 1A PLANICA–KOTOVO SEDLO–PLANICA (23OO m ~ 16,4 km)

Kotovo Sedlo is an ambitious ski tour. You ski beneath Jalovec, one of the most stunning peaks of the Julian Alps, which adorns the symbol of the Mountaineering Association of Slovenia with its image. The starting point of the ascent is in the world-famous Nordic Ski Center Planica. From here continue through the Tamar Valley up, past the mountain hut and further on below the dramatic walls of Travnik and Šit, eldorado of Slovenian climbers. Below the unmistakable Jalovčev Ozebnik turn onto the wide slopes of the eastern side and continue to the extreme point on the ridge, which can still be reached with skis. Ski back in the direction of the ascent. The descent is smooth, except in the gully below Šit where you must take time to choose the best line through the variable terrain.

  • Guided tour with a licenced IFMGA guide
  • Transfer to the starting point and back to the hotel
  • Half board in a hotel in Kranjska Gora

 

DAY 3

Option A: Tour 2 VRŠIČ–NAD ŠITOM GLAVA–VRŠIČ (2O87 m ~ 2,9 km)

A shorter but beautiful and scenic ski tour above Vršič, unjustly underrated compared to the neighbouring Mala Mojstrovka. Most visitors travelling across the Vršič Pass do not even notice Nad Šitom Glava in the neighbourhood of Mojstrovka and the mighty Prisojnik. The ascent and skiing from the top is a relatively short ski touring adventure. But it still contains all the elements of a classic ski tour: a relatively steep climb that requires caution and offers stunning views from the top. From Vršič first climb steeply below the ridge of Mojstrovka, then over slightly gradual slopes to the right and to the summit. Due to the considerable steepness, the descent in good conditions is a real treat.

Option B: Tour 2A VRŠIČ–VELIKA MOJSTROVKA–VRŠIČ (2366 m ~ 7,5 km)

Velika Mojstrovka is a classic Slovenian ski tour, which must be on the list of every winter visitor. From Vršič Pass ascend to Vratca – a gully in Grebenc. Follow the ridge for about 1OO m and then turn left across the valley that separates Mala from Velika Mojstrovka. On the other side of the valley, continue along the beautiful slope below a distinctly overhanging wall in the upper part of the slope and then up to the scenic summit. Ski the upper part in the direction of the ascent, then instead of going back to Grebenc, continue on the right side of the valley down to Drevesnica - stick to the extreme right edge of the valley and try not to disturb the chamois that live in this area. It is only a short walk from Drevesnica to Vršič road, and it takes less than half an hour to ascend back to the pass.

  • Guided tour with a licenced IFMGA guide
  • Transfer to the starting point and back to the hotel
  • Half board in a hotel in Kranjska Gora
