Tamar -> Ski jumping tournament in Planica

by Dec 11, 2020

Let´s go to Tamar

If I said I love winter, I would be lying. I don’t like the cold and the fog and the rain. Not even snow if it causes chaos on the road. But I like snowy hills and open ski slopes, and sometimes even shoveling snow… if only I have the time ?. Otherwise, the last few winters were not really snowy. I have higher exceptions in 2021. But in the Alp valleys, there is always snow. So this time we’re going to jump into one of them. We are going to the snowy valley in Tamar.

We start in front of Jacobs Resort apartments and drive towards Rateče and the Nordic Center Planica. Just under the ski jumps, we will start our hike. This year Planica is also hosting the World Summer Championships between 10 and 13 December 2020. Usually, thousands and tens of thousands of people gathered under the Gorišek Brothers ski jump, but this year because of the corona … well, we all know what the reality is this year.

The start of our journey to Tamar

From the parking lot (parking fee was 2.5 € for the whole day) we now have about 45 minutes of easy walking to the mountain lodge in Tamar. The home is usually open all the time, in winter or summer, from Monday to Sunday. Of course, the trip is also suitable for children and puppies, in all possible seasons. In winter, many of them go sledding, which is especially close to children’s hearts or they run on skis. We hikers just have to be careful to watch out for those who go sledding.

From the Tamar valley, paths also lead to these mighty mountains that accompany us: to Jalovec, Ponce and Slemenovo Špica. Under the ski jumps, we can start our trip even when we decide to visit Ciprnik. There are really a lot of possibilities for easy, as well as more demanding or very demanding hikes.

On weekends and holidays, it is quite crowded, and during the week we can enjoy almost complete silence. We can enjoy the sun and fresh air, the beautiful views and snow. The path runs partly through the forest, partly over the scenic slopes, a little straight, a little up, and a little down, there really are no severe ascents here.
At the end of the valley, we will first see the chapel of Marija Pomagaj, where plaques with the names of the injured mountaineers in these mountains are placed. A few steps further, is the mountain lodge, where we can refresh ourselves with food and drink. It should also be mentioned that the path to Tamar can sometimes be quite icy, so small crampons can come in handy.

But safe steps! You go to the mountains with your head and even the easy path should not be underestimated. I share with you my trips, ideas of what to see and experience, but everyone has to take care of safety on their own. Therefore, I do not accept responsibility for any injuries and accidents. Everyone knows how much he can handle.
