Pick-up of starter packs

Pick-up of start packages will be possible on Friday, October 6, 2023, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the wooden house on the terrace next to the Arena Hotel in the Snow Stadium. There is a large parking lot under the hotel, where you can park free of charge for the first two hours. At the parking meter, you just take the slip with the marked arrival time and put it on the dashboard.

Bring your ID with you. Do not take the equipment with you, as we will carry out an inspection of the mandatory VOLVEL equipment and an inspection of the mandatory JEZERNIK equipment on the bus when we drive to the start. And for those who will come to the start on their own, the equipment will be checked just before the start. Therefore, you have to be at the charter place 30 minutes before the officially announced start (Slovenj Gradec at 7:00 a.m., Lovrenc na Pohorju at 10:30 a.m.). Those of you who will not be able to pick up the start packages on Friday, will get them on the bus (if you go with organized transport) or before the start (if you come on your own). If you request, you can also get the package outside of these arranged times by contacting us (call or e-mail).
