Mt. Zeleni vrh is a wonderful sightseeing summit in the Bohinj–Tolmin Mountain chain. When the weather is favourable, it offers excellent conditions for ski touring to the village of Tolminske Ravne.
Distance 11.2 km
The tour to Mt. Zeleni vrh starts in the village of Tolminske Ravne. In good snow conditions, you can start and end this tour on skis. There are several access options available: The usual route follows the steep ravine and continues along the valley between Mt. Vrh nad Škrbino and Mt. Tolminski Migovec, however, this route is circular and therefore somewhat longer than the usual one. The last section of the ascent will take you to the end of the aforementioned valley and to the mountain pass between Mt. Mali vrh and Mt. Zeleni vrh from where you only have to overcome the last ascent to the summit (in case of hard-packed snow, use crampons and the ice-axe). Another access is routed further west along the ridge, however, this trail is more demanding from the orientation point of view.
The crossing trail beneath Mt. Tolminski Migovec can sometimes be covered with ice. In such conditions, it is easier to ascend along the trail intended for the descend (lower section of the marked trail towards Mt. Škrbina).
If the peak is covered with ice, the tour ends on the mountain pass between Mt. Mali vrh and Mt. Zeleni vrh.

Safety informationThis tour is slippery and dangerous for avalanches. You should only take this tour in appropriate conditions.
Tips and hintsMt. Grušnica, which is somewhat lower and covered with trees, is much safer from avalanches. The first section of the access to Mt. Grušnica follows the trail to Mt. Zeleni vrh. Later, the trail does not turn to the crossing trail beneath Mt. Tolminski Migovec but continues straight along the mule trail to the Na Kalu Mountain pasture. Here, the trail turns left towards the west and to the top of Mt. Grušnica. You should ski down the same trail you came from.
Getting thereDrive from the town of Tolmin towards the village of Most na Soči. Just after you cross the Tolminka River, turn left to the village of Žabče and continue all the way to the village of Tolminske Ravne where the road ends. The road is very narrow and requires great caution when driving.
ParkingThere is an arranged and marked parking lot available in the village of Tolminske Ravne.
