Bansko Snow Report

Feb 13, 2010 2 Comments by

Today’s Bansko weather and snow video report features the return of Ivanka. Generally overcast weather, but with with good visibility and some sunny spells. The fresh 20cm of snow the mountain was busy with those wanting to make fresh tracks through the trees. The higher temperatures meant that the snow inevitably gets a little cut up by 1:00pm.

Snow Forecast

The snow cover is very good now, with the previous hard base only showing through on the balkanyada and tomba pistes. Unfortunately this warm weather has meant a lot of the snow in the town melting make it really wet when walking around. The warm temperatures will remain so there will be a mix of rain and snow. for the next three days.

Don’t expect to see much sunshine as the low pressure systems bringing warm moist air from the south create cloud cover. Looking ahead the snow higher up will continue and probably Thursday we will see temperatures start to fall.

Sitting outside the Peshterite restaurant, just off the snow road to Bansko was just warm enough to enjoy the shopska salad, bob (bean soup), kebabche and chip with cheese. Probably my best Bansko lunch ever.


Today we put some nice bells and whistles in the video report.  Please let me know what you think. I’ve also finished a short video for the BanskoBlog and JJ Murphy’s One Year Old Party on Friday 19th February. But please see my recent article on the evening which will feature Ani Lozanova and her band. I’m delighted to be able to welcome so many new readers over the last week. Thanks for keeping me busy.

Tip Of The Day

Have your skis and snowboards regularly serviced. It makes all the difference to have sharp edges.

    You must be enjoying some good skiing with all that snow. Seems like we've had record setting snow fall in many parts of North America and Europe this year. Nice touch having your blog's name on the video and I like the jazzy tune. Cheers!
