Skiing to Valle di Ugovizza Date Climbed: Jan 4, 2009
Why I'm allways late from home, when days are the shortest? I hardly got through crowded ski resorts, parked far below Osteria nel Camoscio and hurried up towards Lom saddle. The path from below it to Bistriška planina is just the opposite of what Bor described - he was joking, of course. A dense forrest with hard snow, luckilly this year there's really a lot of it. I overtook a few hikers with snowshoes, and negotiated the steep S slope of Ojstrnik directly. The ski track ended, so I walked up, but soon changed my mind. It still went better with skis. I was surprised to need almost 3 hours on top. Everybody already left, so I carefully prepared for skiing. The upper part is ideal, then a steep part comes, and below a pure joy - till the forrest. There it was a real struggle for some 250 meters of altitude, while below on forrest roads with almost two meters of snow it was just a poetry.
