Slovenia: Hike to Ciprnik and Cross Country Race in Planica

My friend Rok got 2 tickets for the FIS Cross-Country World Cup race in Planica, so we decided to go there. Since everyone normal went there with the car or by bus, we hiked over some hills.

An early start from lake Jasna near Kranjska Gora took us over Dom na Vitrancu and Vitranc to peak called Ciprnik, 1745 m. From there we descended to Planica where we watched the race.

Peak Vitranc, named after the grey hair and grey beard judge, who expelled Bedanc from this area.
