The Bansko snow report contains just video action from my GoPro helmet cam. Saturday and today saw some icy patches and exposed areas. Morning is best with the piste getting carved up by mid afternoon.
It was cold too. Those with thin cheap gloves were paying the price with hands colder than the snow around us.
My GoPro camera has been out of action for a while. So now fixed I’m again appreciating how much fun these little cams are. If you make your own GoPro or others ski movies in Bansko, then let me know and I’ll be happy to link to them.
I’m now thinking that, whenever possible, the latest snow reports will get more of this type of stuff in.
A musical evening
I enjoyed a good night out with friends looking for live music. So we chose the Happy End live. The live band here delivered plenty of all time favourites as usual.
Kempinski’s Sing Sing piano bar was next. A more chilled atmosphere, a top trio singing the favourites. A relaxing way to round off a great day.
Both venues are popular and reservation is advisable for the best tables. Both were surprisingly free of smoke. The Happy End more youthful and at higher volumes. But it is still very popular with DJ Shark doing a fine job to make the party.
When in the Happy End it can be challenging to avert one’s gaze away from the podium dancers.
So I didn’t.
Here’s a peek at one such lady, the mighty fine Malinka, dancing in the Happy End.
All pictures here are taken by me on Saturday 14th January 2012. Come back for more video, and pictures, on both the ski conditions in Bansko and the apres ski action.
2012 has seen a big improvement in the choice, with reliable traditional places mixing well with some new places.
