The move they made Ski The Fire Ring The distinctive difference of Nordic, Turner and Alpine / Freeride and climbing skins, and does not use Quadra but public transport and its power, eg skiing and special sleeve, t. i. spread.
The boys will go to Iceland Central to the Herdubreid volcano, also known as the Queen of Iceland Mountains, and the Askja volcano with skiing a countryside, equipment for purpose, aimed at climbing and skiing alongside the slopes of non-sound of the volcanic mountains.
Kostelic, who has worked with Slovenia in such projects (TransIsland 2016 and Greenland 2017 in the Mihe Podgornik and Vatnajokull-Hofsjokull-Langjokull 2017 company by Matej Kordež) going on. It is planned to take place between March 20 and 5. April 2019.
The events of the space will be heard with their cameras and the camera, and will be combined in a documentary film that they expect to make different festivals outside.
With the members of the show, we talked to Gozd Martuljek, where they met at one of the meetings before leaving.
Ivica, after three years, you will return to Iceland, the home of your wife, not just for a trip, but for a special ski tour. What do you expect at this time to be like the drinking environment?
Unstable weather If we are fortunate, we have two or three days from time to time in one piece.
Another problem may be a snowfall. In order to eliminate your half, it is very important that the rural squirrel will be in the snowstorm, or so everything is even more difficult now on the way to the volcanoes and back (about 200km).
It's not a land, but for avalanches, where the journey is not easy. If the move was to follow later, we would have a better weather and snowfall may be smaller.
I expect the temperature to be & # 39; moving somewhere between zero and -20 degrees Celsius.
I think this is not a very difficult problem, Iceland is still in civilization, they have a very good rescue service, but things can be difficult to volcano, where they need to climb and ski field is very tough.
How does the ski trip to Iceland differ from previous ones?
Three Sloveneans left with you. Why do not you have such a profile in Croatia?
In fact, I did not even look at them. Also, because I was when I came to think about Kanin in Slovenian, with Sloinnnein. In some way, in fact, it seemed that all the Sloops were. In addition, in Croatia, I do not know anyone who is so intense in skiing freeride as Matej Bradaški does.
Which members are in the Skiing of the Fire Ring?
Ivica Kostelic (head of the campaign), former senior Alpine sketch
Ferries: TransIceland 2016, Unified winter cross without the support of the 2017 mainland Iceland, Vatnayokull-Hofsjokull-Langjokull 2017 (in a couple with Mate Kordež), Greenland 2017 (going over Greenland in a couple with Miho Podgornik).
Matej Bradaškja, freerider / technical skier
Reports: Cashmere 2009, Alaska 2017
He is a complex winner in freeride competitions in Slovenia and abroad, with over 100 competitions and alpinic surnames from hills in Slovenia and abroad, first changes and first repetition.
"I met Ivica on Kanin, where we teamed for a few days. He introduced me to the idea that I was going to Iceland and I was inside. After a while, I have visited Kashmir in India, where we met the registrar of the trip, Mihom Deisinger, and Alaska, and Iceland will be a completely new experience for me.
I do not prepare for the trip, since I always go on the road. I say to myself that I was already born. "
Jan Podgornik, alpine leader, climber, skier tour, photographer
"As it is an alpinistine, my position is to help the path to the volcanic mountain. I am preparing myself for a number of reasons, and I am just returned from Chamonix, where I and my brother Miho, who I proposed to kill, 4,000 meters Gran Paradis.
I have some knowledge already with a polar emerging. For a new year I was in Sweden, where we traveled by skiing back and down; sleep in tents. Even if I'm to; I sleep in the air, I am often in the mountains or the boats or sleep in the air.
What do I expect? It will not be a problem in my idea, if snow does not; falling, it would be harder, especially the climb to the volcanic mountain, because it is completely unidentified. In addition to the usual style of its & # 39; mountain, there is still no way of climbing or avoiding. This was reinforced by the Ben Icelandic Society. The most difficult thing you find is a good line that allows you to climb and ski. "
Miha Deisinger, skipper and photographer
"In the Icelandic story, I fell through Matej (Bradashka, op. A.), who met in 2009 in skiing in Kashmir, India, and now I often have a & # 39; skiing together, and I helped him by casting out his teams.
When we had Kanin last year with Ivica, he invited me to go. Initially, I have impeded a bit, especially due to fitness, but I think I can be ready. I walk very much to the hills, I am going to see it. going to work, I'll run … In & # 39; Store at low temperatures I did not sleep, but I do not care. We have good sleeping baskets and tents, I do not think there are any problems. My job will be to delete most of its & # 39; registration. "

Le Miho Podgornik, who had always been with you previously to Iceland and her Greenland, now, because of your child's expectations, will leave her away, just before you first met, but they tied closely with real relationships. How do you create chemistry with other members of the trip?
Actually, we do not know well, but usually, I now trust the minds. Of course, such a suitable result for many years, but this is not our case.
I know Mateja well, because we were together with Kanin, where he was born skiing from the Hebridean volcanoes, which came long since that eye, because in In the middle of Icelandic wilderness they are stand out very much, and so far no one has spread their peaks.
First of all, I invited you to start the mountain first Rok Zalokar, which I met at a rescue workshop from the glacier clearances in Kanin, but as a result of other plans, she had to give it (heliskiing in Albania).
Then I met Matej, he invited him and he was immediately responsible. Air Kanin Choinnich I also added to Miho camera camera. In fact, we needed a climber and a photographer in one person, I wish to participate in Miha Podgornik, who has other plans (in April a child is expected) and praised his brother Jana.
We are preparing each one for ourselves, and I'll go to each other; training as much as I can. Perhaps those days may have other common sources in Slovenia.
How many interests did you get from the previous trip that can help you?
Everything, but just climb and ski well, I've already done at previous trips. From steering, knitting (sledging, pulk) and sleeping in tents.
What type of equipment do you need?
Food for 14 days, two spiral pairs (back country for pulling pork and one pair of ski to turn and alpine skiing), whole climbing equipment, including slops, crampons … I am a & # 39; We estimate about 70 kilograms.
Do you carry the equipment and its & # 39; food with you, and you will be burned in a & # 39; shop?
Yes, in the winter the roads on the platform are closed, so there is almost no other choice, sleeping is only in the shop. At volcano, it is a type of mountain-house; in Asky, but is also closed in winter.
What kind of food do you take? Is it dehydrated?
Also, yes. We will prepare food for 14 days in advance, good practice is to eat up to 4,000 or 5,000 calories a day, although it may happen that spending is even bigger.
Is there anything in luggage?
Of course, it will be in the luggage, its ham, the sausages, the bacon. It is also important to introduce protein to get the organs as well as carbohydrates, which also adds something sweet. In my case, they usually grow grain.
You may have water melting from the snow?
Yes, it's important to add water to minerals and make isotonic drinks.
One of the material you delete is a documentary film.
Yes, we will financially finance this and in the future. Here, Miha Deisinger and the photographer Jan Podgornik played their lead role.
Did you see a special film in an outdoor sports world recently?
Yes, I do not know if it's a new or older film; , I can see it on YouTube … Twenty-five films. It is a collection of 20-year-old records containing three illustrations to & # 39; play with camera. Superior.
You said that there is a lot of climb on the way too. How many of your existing climbing experiences you already have?
In the early years I climbed pretty well, mostly on artificial walls, but if I was too easy in Iceland, I would give it to the rest. I trust them completely.
"The time is, where you sleep and decide, the three questions that are counted when you are away from civilization. As we know, there is a lot more in civilization, and surely these are not the issues, "you were at last year's festival of the film on the Against the Horizon film, which is a & # 39; describing your 18 day day of Greenland on the cross-country skiing. You take the food with you, the same thing applies to its & # 39; shop, accommodation, with which you talk to weather repression?
With my wife, Elin. I think we have a signal for the first volcano, but I do not know exactly.
Do you put electronic devices on solar panels?
There is. This will now be easier because we will set up two camp sites where we will be there for days and we will be able to fill them all day. So far we've been going on, we have never established a basic camp.
