Velika Črnelska špica peak 2332 m, 2278 m
Bovec 450 m, 503 m
Best time of year
We absolutely do not recommend you to take this tour if increased snow avalanche risk was announced.
On the Rombonski podi Plateau you have to be cautious when skiing because this area includes plenty of hidden Karst precipices.
Because of the rocky and partially forest-covered terrain we advise you not to ski from the Goričica Mountain pasture to the town of Bovec even if snow conditions are good.
Warm and waterproof clothing, ski touring skins, avalanche rescue kit, crampons and the ice-axe (if you intend to climb to the top of the Velika Črnelska špica peak and if the slope beneath it is iced-over), waterproof mountaineering footwear (for the hike from the Goričica Mountain pasture to the town of Bovec).
Tips, hints and links
It is appropriate to take this tour from March onwards because the slopes are prone to avalanches due to skiing.
If you are physically well-prepared you can also ski from the top of the Velika Černelska špica peak (2332 m), however, you have to consider that the ascent to this peak requires crampons and the ice-axe.
If the weather rapidly deteriorates you can shorten the tour to the Goričica Mountain pasture by skiing down the so called Rupa.
