Another day in nearby mountains, but it wasn't just backcountry skiing as title says, it was also a joint climbing tour of young alpinist learners, international tour with participants from Serbia and BiH and skiing from the top of the mountain. For the tip of the iceberg some of us also joined the skiing competition from Škarjev rob to Dom pod Storžičem mountain hut, 1123 m, that had a start somewhere on our way down. All that for another great day.
|We started with the hike in the fog with almost no sign of the snow|
|Some said that my skis would also be good for the water skiing|
|At the entrance of the Kramarjeva ravine (IV / I-III, 615 m) we put on crampons and replaced hiking poles with ice axes.|
|Waiting line over first "jump"|
|Soon we were rewarded with a view|
Half way up
|I quit. No no, just a short break.|

|AO Tržič organised another great trip|
|Start of the skiing competition, where only half of the track was covered with snow and the other half you have to carry your skis. This skiing competition was organised to celebrate 80 years of organised mountain rescue service in Tržič - GRS Tržič and also to remember all the 9 victims of an avalanche that took place here on 29. march 1937, also on a skiing competition.|
