Slovenia: Backcountry SkiingVelika Mojstrovka

At 8 a.m. Bošjan, Nadja and me started our backcountry skiing trip. We parked our car on Vršič Pass, 1611 m, and from there we started ascending towards a ravine called Pripravniška grapa. There we removed the skis and continued on foot to the top of ravine. Snow was soft enough, and there were plenty of steps in it, so we could walk up only with an ice axe. At the top of the ravine we put our skis back on and continued to the top of Velika Mojstrovka, 2366 m. It was a bit windy at the top so we didn't wait for long to put our skis on and started skiing to the saddle between Mala and Velika Mojstrovka and then through Drevesnica down to the valley. Since we were below our starting point, we put skins back on our skis and ascended back to our car.

Still enough snow below Mala Mojstrovka, 2332 m, for some backcountry skiing

We managed to climb or better said walk the ravine Pripravniška grapa without crampons

Slopes below Velika Mojstrovka
