Slovakia: Backcountry Skiing in Vysoké Tatry (High Tatras), Day 2

Our first night in Zbójnicka Chata was a bit short, but we all managed to get up. After the breakfast we put the skins on our skis and we were ready for backcountry skiing. Our first goal was Priečne sedlo, 2352 m, and then a descent to the Téryho chata (Terinka), 2015 m, a hut where we decided to have a break and to say goodbye to our Slovak friends Iva and Vladimír.

We continued in the direction of Baranie Sedlo, 2393 m, and somewhere in the middle we split up. Milan, Stojan, Igor, Slavc and me continued over the saddle to the peak called Baranie Rohy, 2516 m, while Borut nad Jure had their own plans. We reached the top, unfortunately the view wasn't clear, so we quickly descended. After a while we regrouped and returned back to Zbójnicka Chata, also via Priečne sedlo, but the opposite way.
