This autumn has been unseasonably cold and snowy, especially in the mountains. The highest elevations (above 2,000 meters) had received a very early covering of snow.
This last Saturday we went to Pokljuka with the Slovenian mountain guides for our winter training.
Towards the end of autumn, it seemed that a classic winter with plenty of snow was on its way. There was some precipitation, but unfortunately, it was followed by a dry period.
I remember a couple of unusually warm winters during the late eighties, and something similar is happening this year in Slovenia as well.
