Or maybe the Climax will never come

Time flies by, days are getting longer,
sun is shining stronger ,
nights are warmer, snow is thinner,
soul is sleeping, mind is dreaming,
friends are climbing, studying, working... 
and winter season is officially over for me.

...And I'm here, sitting on my favourite rock of my favourite trail, thinking about life while listening to birds singing... I hear river and cars below me, both are loud. Nobody was here for a few days... trail is narrow and exposed, rain drops have weighted the flowers which are now leaning towards the trail. I'm alone here, I'm always alone here. Maybe some day, I'll take somebody with me... 

I'm sitting here and thinking about life. What I'd like to do, to experience, to see, what kind of people to meet... and suddenly I decide to enjoy the exact moment. Time flies... I have to go, I have to stay warm and run back... Heart beat rises again, legs are spinning on a flowy trail and lungs are receiving thin, cold evening air....

I had some difficult days in the past few days. Mostly because I hardly change my routine... and winter has become one of them. I got used to waking up early, living life at its finest and fullest, I got used to being away from this crazy, impatient world, from people expecting me doing things I don't like and listening people arguing about trivial moments and things... But at the same time, I like to change my routine. As long as I like the new one.

Triglav? Nice try

Just when I thought that the best days of the season are going to happen, snow line had rapidly moved higher and sun was already too strong... I tried to attempt my skiing line on Triglav NE face, on May 7th. Waking up at one o'clock in the morning didn't hel pat all, I was just a bit too late. I should go to Kredarica an evening before and start early to the top... so I decided to turn around and leave it for the next time... it won't go anywhere, I think.

Klemen, Mato and I went to one of those nearest classic ski-touring destinations for spring time - Kolbreinsperre. Parking place was filling with cars, so we decided to hurry up a bit and take our tempo to next level. If you're still asking yourself who were those three idiots running in ski-gear for one kilometer... well, we were haha. Maybe if we hadn't hurry up, Mato would not forgot his skins and run triple distance haha :))

We hadn't any real plans, but we called it day with 2000 verticals and 8 hours in our pockets... A nice training for those two for Chamonix and an excellent finish of the season for me. The only bad thing was... sun. We were totally sunburned and eventually got some new skin... :)

What is picture above showing? Something I couldn't believe my eyes. Seeing Mato and Klemen totally exhausted was something totally new for me...

It's time for white colour of snow being replaced with green colour of trees, red cherries and blue sky. 
It's time for summer.

I have officially ''given up'' on winter. Not because there wouldn't be one, it always is somewhere... some friends are still chasing it, but most of them are doing other things for some time already. I decided to become one of them too. Some would say finally, some would say why already... But I have my reasons. One reason is that I've been enjoying mixing al the things I do lately and yes, skiing isn't everything. But friends are. I disregarded them a bit, I'm sorry guys. At the same time I'm thankful for letting me doing things I love and enjoy, thank you. The other reason is that I can't really afford any expensive trips to West and the third one is that I actually don't have much time. And the last one would be that I have interest in doing other things too...

One of them is mountainbiking - I've had a wish and my parents enabled me one... I'm on my way to become a mountainbike guide. Some little things still have to be done though, but the main part is behind us. Mac was kind enough to let me ride one of his Mondraker bikes and I think I've fallen in love a bit. We were staying at Jamnica, in Koroška region, at Bike Nomad, with the best possible company. I hadn't been riding singletrails for quite some time and all I can say is... Braaaapppp :) Even though we had primarly been on education, we still had much fun. I hope to see you guys soon again.

Bye, bye, snow

I had been working on my season edit for a few days now: I've chosen moments from all season which mean something to me. It's a bit longer than my usual videos, but as it's the last snowy one this year, it should be. I have to say that I experienced many incredible moments, with awesome people, at our wonderful mountains. I hope you enjoy it till the end.

And for the end some big news... I got sponsored from Osprey - big thanks go to Actionmama and Factory StoreI can choose now from 4 backpacks and a travel bag and my first impression was incredible. Every pocket, every strap, every hole has its own function. Products are not only functional, but also incredibly light, nicely designed, ergonomical and durability is pretty high. I'll show you more with time, but you can already see some of the products on my Instagram page.

Oh and as I'm already talking about social media platforms, I've started using my Snapchat profile after two years. You can follow me on my daily basis at simonerdovan. 

It's probably the last blog about winter, ski mountaineering or freeride here this season, but I hope you keep reading it... Even though I won't ski anymore for some time (probably), I have so many things to do that there's always something to write about. I will try to keep it interesting (I hope it is haha) ;)
