Mt. Rušnati vrh is one of the ski touring destinations above the Razor Mountain pasture which is not crowded and offers excellent skiing and marvellous views in good weather conditions. We warmly recommend it.
From the village of Tolminske Ravne ascend to the Razor Mountain pasture along the marked hiking trail. Just above the village you can quench your thirst at the trough with running water and then choose one of the two ascents. The left trail is shorter and steeper, whilst the right trail is routed along a comfortable mule trail. This option is usually selected if the area above the starting point is already covered with a blanket of snow. You exit the forest after approximately 60 minutes. On the mountain pasture, you can soon notice the mountain hut which is closed during the winter months.
If snow conditions are good, you can put on your skis already on the mountain pasture. Walk past the mountain hut on the mountain pasture (closed during the winter months) along logical passages until you reach the thin forest which you pass on the right side and continue ascending along the snowy slope (see the photopgraph with the drawn direction of the ascent). When you arrive to a level section you can enjoy in splendid views of the adjacent peak called Meja which, like other summits above the Razor Mountain pasture, offers excellent conditions for ski touring. Continue ascending to the right and, at the next level section, turn towards the nice slope leading to the top. If the slope is hard, we recommend you to ascend along the hollow depression located on the left side of the ridge.
During the spring months, when the nights are still cold, we advise you not to climb to Mt. Rušnati vrh in early morning hours because the slope only becomes well skiable in the middle of the day.
