In the village of Tolminske Ravne, start following the hiking trail to the Razor Mountain pasture. At the edge of the mountain pasture you can usually already put your skis on, however, if hiking conditions are good, you will be faster on foot.

Our ascent is routed along the most distinctive channel above the centre part of the mountain pasture. When you arrive to the top of the channel turn to the right and continue uphill along the ridge to the bivouac which is well visible from the mountain pasture. From the bivouac you only have to hike for a few minutes until you arrive to the ridge where splendid views open towards the Bohinj area. You should ski along the same trail you came from.

Take off your skis at the top of the channel and continue to the nearby Mt. Rušnati vrh. The upper section of the ascent is quite steep and requires good conditions. When you arrive to the top of the mountain you will be awarded again with luxurious views of the Julian Alps. You should ski along the same trail you came from to the channel which you follow to the mountain pasture and to the tree line.
