Ski mountaineering in the Julian Alps

12.02.2007 by Planetmountain

Winter ski mountaineering in the Julian Alps is both severe and complex, but at the same time it offers a great deal and reveals itself slowly to those willing to find out more.

If you want to explore this Italian mountain group then you have no choice other than to strap your skis on, fatigue through the deep snow, discover the frightful gullies and endure the long approaches.

It would be more correct to define it as being winter mountaineering with skis, in which the skis themselves are merely a means, not the end, to the outing. But don't regard this as a limit! On the contrary!

Check out the full article ski mountaineering in the Julian Alps by local Mountain Guide Massimo Candolini.
