… as Michael Kennedy, american alpinist, rock climber, photographer and editor (Climbing magazine, Alpinist magazine) would explain to us the other day at Mountain film festival Domžale.
He said: “Balance is the hardest to achieve; we all need to maintain our own emotional, physical and spiritual health while giving enough to family and friends so they can do the same. That giving has to be done freely, without regrets. One last thing to remember is that you’ll never get back time, so use it wisely.”
Urban and Michael picked me up yesterday and took me to a day trip to “somewhere”. Urban and i decided to hit Karavanke for a change. We skinned up to Suho Ruševje and took some photos of faces and short lines i would like to ski pretty soon. The weather in the morning was fairly cloudy but soon as we reached “our top” it cleared up a bit and it was really cool to ski on a soft snow. We skinned back up to a cabin on Zelenica and weren’t quite satisfied so we proceed towards central couloir of Begunjščica and find some really good snow. Ended up our “boyscouts” trip with a fair bit of a skiing and said our goodbye to eachother. I was glad to hang out with such great alpinists as Michael and Urban, as they have a different approach to mountains. They always enjoy mountains, despite it was hard to please someone from Colorado area. But anyway, it’s always good to be out and ski and search for some cool lines. We always want to search for crazy ass lines in other countries even tho they can be in front of our nose.
