Snow Report: New Year Weather Forecast

Dec 27, 2010 No Comments by

Our video snow blog today comes from Sania at BanskoSkiMania, BanskoBlog’s ski packages partner. Bansko snow looking better for today, and for the next few days. The much needed snow can be seen in its glory in the video snow report. Everyone has been worried about the warm weather and general lack of the all important white stuff in Bansko. Frustrating times are coming to an end, we all hope. Subscribe to the YouTube Channel and/or follow on twitter for the snow reports as they are posted.

Weather Forecast

Looking ahead, temperatures will be generally nicely below freezing as the current pressure system moves off. Clear sunny skies are likely. However, signs of really massive dumps of snow are not yet in sight. The good news, after all this warm weather, are the much colder temperatures. This means that the snow cannon will do their job and help deliver some respectable piste skiing and snowboarding this week.

Piste Safety: Will You Avoid Injury?

I still see a lack of awareness of piste etiquette , and yet again the gondola medics will be kept busy patching up injuries — most of which are avoidable. Collisions are not uncommon. First day over enthusiasm combined with first day tiredness and lack of fitness is an injury red flag. Add in to the mix that “last run of the day” and, statistically speaking, you could be heading for harm. Please take it easy. Oh yes, whilst getting all boring —  I still see that around 25% of skiiers here have no ski insurance (lift pass insurance included is not sufficient). It is essential to have adequate cover in case of the need for specialist repatriation. It’s not expensive;  and it could save yourself and your family their life’s savings.
