You should ski down the same trail you came from. Because of the high altitude you can choose your own direction of skiing. In good snow conditions you can ski down the snow tongues almost to the point beneath the roadmen house.
Safety informationIt is unsafe to ski in this valley immediately after heavy snowfall because the slope becomes prone to avalanches.
The sun does not shine into the valley until the middle of the day which is why the surface of the snow is usually hard and slippery. We recommend you to make the ascent by using crampons and the ice-axe.
Tips, hints and linksYou can choose the route of your ascent or descent according to your level of experience and quality of the surface because the inclination of the slope varies. You should adapt the course to your abilities.
Getting thereDrive from the town of Bovec to the Vršič Mountain pass. At an altitude of 1080 m you will notice a decaying roadmen house on the right side of the road where you can park.
If you come from the town of Kranjska Gora or the Vršič Mountain pass, descend towards the village of Trenta.
