Ice climbing

februar 6th, 2005 Comments off
Well… what an unfortunate day. There were actually two events where i wanted to be on 8th of February… One is wedding (report will follow) the other is an international ice climbing competition in Mojstrana. I managed to visit guys just for a few minutes, before departing to Ljubljana, but i didn’t manage to take any photos. But still, i have some left from last year.

Who won on the end? Difficulty was won by ukranian Evgeniy Krivošejcev and speed by swiss Simon Wandeler. Oh yes, almost forgot: the venue – Mlacca – Mojstrana – Slovenia … no english version for now…

Telemark skiing

februar 1st, 2005 Comments off
I went snowboarding to Italy, to a place called Monte Lusari (Visarje). Excellent skiing resort, close to my home, just over the border. It mainly only one black/red run, with 1000m of height difference. Anyway, thats not where i shot telemark skiing. Actually, on a way back i stopped in Kranjska gora (Men’s Skiing World Cup venue) where the Eurocup in telemark was in full flow. I caught only the last 10 telemarkers… And its very interesting sport, as it combines skiing on steep slopes and cross country running…

Run doggy, run…

On thursday i found out, that during a weekend there is a Sleddog competition quite near my home. Great… if only i hadn’t been ill. Nevermind, let’s go. Of course, i came again quite late (well, this is my trademark), so i caught only last 10 competitors…

But still you can admire those dogs, how fast they are running. Are they enjoying it? Well… thats another question. I guess they do – or at least some do. Why would a stray dog then run after a sled?

Back in the mountains…

One week after, i’m again back in the mountains – again i went to Vrsic. Due to bad snow conditions i decided to go on a short walk with Iztok and his two lovely dogs. Well, there was snow, just the “right” slopes were left uncovered. Anyway, it was a nice, not too long walk (from Vrsic you have to walk first a little bit up, and than it flattens out), and dogs were a blast.

Didn’t take too many photos, here are just some…

Until next time… hopefully i’ll be already skiing…

First contact with snow this winter

Rado called me on friday evening. How about Vrsic, climbing and skiing – tommorow, around 7:30? And i said yes. After long summer i had a real difficulty finding all the equipment, especially crampons. But soon (well, we were 30 minutes late) we managed to get going. The road to the highest slovenian road pass (some 1600m above sea level) was passable, and there was hardly any snow on the road. And a lot of snow beside the road. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough of snow (well, it could be still done),, so we decided to leave our skis and snowboard in the car and not to go on the climbing route. As expected, there was snow, just not on the right places (except in the last straight), but still it was a nice walk on a beautiful november day.
