Choose your starting point for the tour to Mt. Krasji vrh in accordance with snow conditions. It is very rarely possible to ski all the way to the village of Drežniške Ravne. Occasionally, it is possible to ski to the Pri koritu parking lot above this village, however, skiing usually ends on the Zaprikaj Mountain pasture. The following text describes the access from the Pri koritu parking lot above the village of Drežniške Ravne. If you start the tour on the Zaprikaj Mountain pasture, you should follow the marked trail towards Mt. Krasji vrh and join the described trail in the forest.

Author’s recommendation

We recommend you to take this tour when the weather is fine and when Mt. Krasji vrh offers splendid views. The ridge can be covered with ice and without any snow. On such occasions it is better to carry your skis to the top of the mountain and to ski down the left side of the ridge.

Turn-by-turn directions

Start the tour at the Pri koritu parking lot above the village of Drežniške Ravne. Follow the road towards the Zaprikaj Mountain pasture and turn away from the road when a marked hiking trail turns left into the forest. Follow this trail towards Mt. Krasji vrh. When you reach a junction, follow the trail to the left because the trail to the right leads past the Snežna jama Cave and Mt. Debeljak to the top. When the forest becomes thinner, you soon arrive to the ridge leading to the top. Follow this ridge instead of the summer trail routed along the slope beneath the ridge. From the top, you should descend next to the ridge and continue through the forest down the same route you came from.

Public transport

There is no public transportation available to the starting point.

Getting there

Drive along the paved road from the village of Drežnica to the village of Drežniške Ravne and further towards the Zaprikaj Mountain pasture. Soon after the paved road turns into a gravel road, you can notice a water trough to the right where you can park your car. If the lower section of the road is covered with snow, park your car somewhat lower down the road.

Parking

There are a couple of parking places available next to the water trough. Occasionally, you should have a shovel with you to clear the snow from the parking space.
