I am disappointed I did not have time to report on it, interview some of the sports people and the organisers. I had prepared the questions. I was hoping to produce some great content.

The course looked fantastic, and the weather, until today, was generally good.

World Cup events do add pressure on any ski resort, but here in Bansko the Turkish and Bulgaria holidays collided to create busy slopes. Made more busy die to the event.
The Tomba will be back open tomorrow. Rain will continue to be a problem, but the freezing level will drop and the snow will fall lower down by Friday. By Saturday 11th February things are set for an impressive ski week.
